App Review: Arrette Scale – Precision Scale Drawing via ArchDaily

Arrette

Arrette makes it possible for non-designers to review work in digital form, cutting down on the time it takes to share ideas and make changes. Designers never need to resort to paper to originate their ideas and stakeholders need not learn complicated digital drawing tools to participate in the creative process. The team behind the app “have attempted to make Arrette as simple as possible.” “We want using it to be similar to drawing on paper but with the additional capabilities enabled by the electronic format. This emphasis on simplicity is because the very people who lead the design process and review design work, typically the senior people in a design office and the client, are often the ones who use computer-based design programs the least. Arrette is intended to be accessible to everyone.”

This DIY domino clock tells the time using three LED-lit tiles via Arduino Blog

After coming across Carbon Design Group’s Domino Wall Clock, which uses electronic magnetic coil motors to reveal white dots, Instructables member “Kothe” decided to create a simplified version of their own. The clock is comprised of three custom dominoes — the first tile for hours, the second and third for minutes. Unlike its inspiration, Kothe’s device uses addressable RGB LEDs as dots that allow for a variety of colors to shine through.

Onion Pi makes your web traffic anonymous via Open Electronics

Hmmm, might be an easy (and relatively cheap) way to play around with Tor and learn a bit more about this anonymizing service. -- Douglas Adafruit’s Onion Pi is a Tor proxy that makes your web traffic anonymous, allowing you to use the internet free of snoopers and any kind of surveillance. Follow Adafruit’s tutorial on setting up Onion Pi and you’re on your way to a peaceful anonymous browsing experience. Tor is an onion routing service – every internet packet goes through 3 layers of relays before going to your destination. This makes it much harder for the server you are accessing (or anyone snooping on your Internet use) to figure out who you are and where you are coming from.
