Grove - Arduino Starter Kit Plus [Product]

I discovered another Arduino sensor start kit today via an email from MassDrop. MassDrop is a site which promotes group purchases of products in order to give everyone a lower price.

if you aren’t keen on using MassDrop, you can pick up the same starter kit directly from Amazon using the links below.

This kit does NOT include the Arduino board itself, but it does come with the Grove Shield which attached to Arduino Uno or Arduino 101 and provides solder free connections between the Arduino and the sensors. This might come in handy if you are working with kids, as it means that can’t really connect up the sensors in a way that might damage them.

From Amazon.com...

Grove is a modular electronic platform for quick prototyping. Every module has one function, such as touch sensing, creating audio effect and so on. Just plug the modules you need to the base shield, then you are ready to test your idea buds.

This Grove Starter Kit Plus is a upgraded version of our Grove Starter Kit. We included more frequently encountered modules in this kit to support your concept buildup. Meanwhile, we totally refreshed the whole image of this kit with eye-catching green and user-friendly booklet and stickers. If you were ever held back by the serious face of electronic modules, then it's time to review the point and discover the new face of it.

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.

How to Build a Raspberry Pi-Powered Digital Photo Frame via Tom's Hardware

A digital photo frame is a small screen that can sit on your desk in your office or in your kitchen displaying your favorite pictures, changing at regular intervals. The first commercial digital photo frame was introduced in the 1990s shortly after the digital camera. Digital photo frames made a comeback in popularity during 2020, perhaps because people were staying at home more. In this tutorial, we’ll turn our Raspberry Pi into a digital photo frame using MagicMirror and the GooglePhotos module. Please note, we will skip installation of the 2-way mirror in the original Magic Mirror project. Consider this project, “Magic Mirror, without the mirror.” Read How to Build a Raspberry Pi-Powered Digital Photo Frame via Tom's Hardware An interesting link found among my daily reading
