The SPOT: Strobist Project Opensource Trigger

Strobist Project Opensource Trigger
The SPOT is a device that lets you adjust and trigger off-camera flashes remotely. It’s an essential tool for using artificial light. The creative possibilities that off-camera flash provides are endless. The SPOT has two modes of operation:

As a transmitter it sits on the hot shoe of a camera and forwards electrical flash trigger signals from the camera to slave flashes via radio
As a receiver it is connected to a small hot shoe (?system?) flash

Battery Discharge Analyzer

Battery Discharge Analyzer
This project builds a simple automatic battery discharge analyzer. It can be used to measure the discharge characteristics of the batteries. The output data can be expressed into a graph with a spreadsheet by sending data to PC via RS232.[more]

Laser Position Sensor

Laser Position Sensor
Laser Position Sensor is an optical sensor that measures and provides the two-dimensional coordinates of visible red laser light shined onto its surface with resolution of 0.0001″. Laser Position Sensor can be used for positioning and alignment, long-range beam-break/security trip wires, remote device control, data communications, and high-speed photography.[more]

LiveGraph

LiveGraph
LiveGraph is a framework for real-time data visualisation, analysis and logging. LiveGraph was developed in the academic domain and is being used for research on daily basis. Being open source, LiveGraph is absolutely free. LiveGraph particularly useful for all applications that require live visualisation of large amounts of data in form of graphs and charts.[more]

Software
AVR Datalogger Zero

AVR Datalogger Zero
AVR Datalogger Zero is an AVR development board that is designed to experience data loggers. This board is designed by Chris Kern. It is mainly intended to help develop experience with technology useful for building data loggers, specifically sd card storage and ethernet connectivity. The board is designed for low power operation. Most onboard systems are powered by a 3.3v switching regulator.[more]
