Arduino Home, DIY Lightning with Water and Gravity, Graph Visualization, and Neglected Diseases

  1. HomeSensean open user-centered research project investigating the use of smart and networked technologies in the home, with uber-Arduino-rockstar Alexandra Deschamps-Sonsino. (via titine on Twitter)
  2. Kelvin’s Thunderstorm (Instructables) — “create lightning from water and gravity”. Simple and impressive science. (via Paul Fenwick)
  3. Graph Visualization Code in Javascript (Stack Overflow) — good pointers to interesting libraries.
  4. ChEMBL – Neglected Tropical Disease archivea repository for Open Access primary screening and medicinal chemistry data directed at neglected diseases. CC0-licensed datasets identifying several tens of thousands of compounds active against the malarial parasite P. falciparum in an effort to lower the cost of drug creation for this neglected disease.
