The action at GroupGets is ramping up as summer comes to a close. We've got a fun gadget to help you defeat the dark side, a low-cost Zynq SoC straight out of Shenzhen, and we've hit our 100th funded campaign! The most exciting part though is seeing what our backers do in the wild. Check out some great examples below and be inspired.

What happens when you mix Mathematica with PureThermal 1 goodness in the kitchen? Justin Pearson of the University of California, Santa Barbara, has the answer. Watch his in-depth video below on the differences in heat flow between a high-end and budget frying pan while demonstrating some great intuitive and graphical features of Mathematica.

SPOTTED IN THE WILD

It’s not a surprise that our backers waste no time getting inventive. We were pleasantly surprised by a tweet to check out this novel application of PRUDAQ in a DIY Ultrasound Imaging Platform. Are you doing anything interesting with products that you backed on GroupGets? Let us know!



Our first GetLab creation, the O.G. FLIR Lepton Breakout Board, is being used on Instructables as part of comprehensive and entertaining thermal imaging primer with Intel Edison. Give it a read on Instructables.com.

GROUP UPDATES


We've recently added our PureThermal1 ProKit to the GroupGets store along with Luci, an advanced flight computer from our friends at Dronesmith Technologies. A final but HUGE thanks to HackerBoards.com for an unexpectedly in-depth article on PRUDAQ and what we’re about. They provide a prolific amount of SBC and embedded systems coverage and we recommend checking them out to stay up to date on hot hardware.
