Let’s be real, everyone knows someone that “borrows” logins from friends and family for digital content services like Netflix, HBO, Hulu, and more, but there is one service that I personally pay dearly for (even on my starving student budget) and selfishly want to protect. That is my Spotify Premium Account. So, let me show … Continued
With Christmas around the corner, I decided to get in the holiday spirit by decking the halls. Well, I didn’t deck the halls, but I did deck my desk.
We’ve all been there (some much more than others) when this creeping voice in the back of your mind starts pestering you asking: “Did you turn off the stove?”
After multiple near miss collisions with peeps and doggos at a busy hallway intersection, I decided that a safe, and efficient way to establish the right of way was necessary.
Using nio, I set up my desk plant (aka Keanu Leaves) to Tweet me when it needs water. Using a Raspberry Pi 3 and a soil moisture sensor, nio sends a tweet mentioning me whenever it’s time to water my plant.
This blog will walk you through all of the steps needed to set up a Raspberry Pi. There are also instructions for installing nio once your Pi is up and running for your own project inspirations!
This blog will show you how to make carpooling easier using the nio platform. Learn how to send a message using Slack and GPS coordinates to the person you are picking up and have an automated traffic report delivered to the co-pilot from Google Maps.
Using the nio platform and less than $40 worth of materials, you can make automated blinds. This system combines real-time sensor data from a UV sensor to control a servo attached to the blinds.
I was a summer intern…and it was a game changer. From facial recognition to tinkering with toy dart guns to counting coffee consumption — I DID IT ALL!
The nerds on the net can’t seem to get enough of the automated nerf gun turret with facial recognition!
So, we grabbed in-house nio nerd Tyler to break it down one more time. From the materials you probably already have, to the hardware you’re gonna need, but most importantly – the software that makes it happen!
At nio we have our fair share of amateur musicians and die-hard fans. Two of our talented engineers, Dylan and Trisha, combined their musical fandom and the power of the nio platform to build an awesome audio processing app. The vision for the app is to enable performers of all types to record and visualize … Continued
The friendly competition yielded some incredible innovations from the nio nerds. Like an app that records your guitar notes in real time as you play. Or a punching bag that determines who hits the hardest in the office. Or nio simply letting you know if you left your oven on [and its current temperature (if you would like to check in-house nerd Double A Ron’s current stove top temp please visit: stove.aaronranard.com)].
This week at nio- we’ve set the nerds free! Armed with the nio software platform, duct tape, and an unlimited imagination here is a look at what they’ve have been up to.
