      The following video summarizes the project highlights of 2019! Most of them are implemented using MicroPython on ESP32 and Python on Raspberry/Orange Pi.

      The flying video was recorded with a Nexus 5X mounted on the Zhiyun Smooth 4. In the video-edition process, software stabilization was only used on the vertical axis. The Zhiyun Smooth 4 smoothed the horizontal movements.

      Following components are used in the video. They are listed by order of appearance:

      This is a really misc. small article. Two month ago, I bought on Banggood two articles that I wanted to show you, but this time, these are not connected to an application, code or a detailed product review. This is only a misc. article to describe my purchase: The Xiaomi Wowstick Screw Driver and the TTGO ESP32 WROVER with 8MB PSRAM.

      Xiaomi Wowstick

      If you are looking for a very small electric screw driver, then the Xiaomi Wowstick is an option for you. It includes everything that you need except the batteries. You need two AAA batteries and you can start disarming toys, clocks, cell...

      First of all, this article is a product review which was/is not supported by Timeular GmbH or similar. I bought the product two weeks ago, because I wanted to test it. I missed out the Kickstarter campaign (2016) and the regular price for the octahedron was too expensive for me.

      This summer, the tracker is on sale with up to 50% discount and I bought the basic plan. I got an octahedron -called tracker- which connects to the Timeular application (Mac, Win...

      I have a Nexus 5X or I had a working Nexus 5X, and last week it turned black and has finally bootlooped! I bought it from Google Store, so I decided to contact Google. I knew that the warranty was expired on Dec. 2017 (Google repeated it), but this is a common problem of the Nexus 5X, so I thought that maybe I have a chance! But NO! The support was nice, but the solution was to contact LG. A death path! Meaning: No goodwill from Google! Nothing! I contacted LG, and the solution was to send the phone to this address:

      #Ubuntu 16.04 LTS: Broken SD Card Reader Support

      workaround

      I am writing this post as a tutorial or a 'keep' note for myself, but I think it could be interesting for a lot of people. At work I'm using a Latitude Dell Laptop with dual boot (Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and Windows 10). The laptop has a SD card reader. Usually I work under Ubuntu while I am programming, and the SD card reader support is broken! But typing the following on a terminal, makes it works again:

      sudo rmmod sdhci_pci sdhci_acpi sdhci
      sudo modprobe sdhci debug_quirks2="0x10000"
      sudo modprobe sdhci_pci sdhci_acpi sdhci

      It seems to be a problem since Linux kernel version 4.1.8. A bug report he...
