Notable Crowdfunded Projects (Week of 11/21/16)

Here is a roundup of current crowdfunded projects that the Circuit Cellar team finds interesting. Check them out and let us know what you think.


RS-HFIQ 5W Software Defined Radio (SDR) Transceiver

HobbyPCB’s RS-HFIQ is a high-performance software-defined radio (SDR) 5-W transceiver for CW, SSB, AM, FM, and digital modes. As of 11/22/16, this project has nine days remaining.

Not just another SDR – The RS-HFIQ offers real RF performance for serious communications. Covering the 80-10M Amatuer Radio bands with excellent RX performance and 5 watts of TX power, using open-source SDR software for CW, SSB, AM, FM and digital modes, the RS-HFIQ sets a new standard for shortwave SDR communications.

QuadBot – Real Robotics, Made Accessible

EngiMake’s QuadBot is a 3-D-printable, programmable walking robot intended for DIYers/makers, aspiring roboticists, and experienced hackers. As of 11/22/16, this project has 47 days remaining.

QuadBot can walk, dance, light up and with sensors it can follow you, avoid obstacles, play songs… anything is possible! But the real value is the open-ness of QuadBot. Rather than limit you to only a few behaviours, we’ve opened up the entire code and design so you can hack it to do anything.  That means if you want to learn basic robotics, you can follow our standard guide, but when you’re ready to activate super maker mode, you can break-out and use QuadBot to explore robotics.

FiPy IoT Dev Board

Pycom’s FiPy is a five-network IoT development board. As of 11/22/16, this project has 30 days remaining.

Simply put, we give you a 5 networks in one simple small, perfectly formed, same-foot-print-as-WiPy-and-LoPy hardware module at a price squeezed right down to €33 (early bird) and €49 after Kickstarter.
