1Sheeld by Integreight

The 1Sheeld by Integreight is the bridge for Arduino users and their electronic prototyping dreams.

The 1sheeld enables your smartphone to act as many different Arduino shields.

So what is a shield and why is the 1Sheeld by Integreight so awesome?

A shield can be built or bought and it enables a certain function on a prototyping board that was not built in. For example:

  • camera
  • bluetooth
  • quality audio
  • gps
  • wifi
  • touchscreen
  • meters
  • microphone

BEFORE 1Sheeld, you had to buy a different shield for each individual project.

Now with the 1Sheeld, you can find and build the optimal shield for all of your projects. Engineers and builders now have a wireless relay between their mobile device (and all of your smartphone embedded sensors and widgets) and the Arduino (Raspberry Pi boards with an adapter).

1Sheeld ‘s most important and outstanding function is that you can select and switch between which particular application you want your shield to perform, hence the name 1Sheeld.

The cost is only 20$ on Kickstarter, which has not launched yet and 40$ after.

This device itself it pretty amazing, what will be more amazing is the number of new inventions people will able to build with.

It is opensource, super compatible, and is the newest coolest stack that every electronic prototyper is going to want to get their hands on.

How to Flip Bitcoins

This is the easiest way to flip Bitcoins using an online exchange.

*Please note this is not a lesson in economics. Obviously if you buy low and sell high you will profit. This is solely in the interest of those looking for the most efficient and effective online exchange medium for turning USD –> BTC –> USD and earning a profit.

  1. Buy Bitcoin(s) on Coinbase
  2. It will debit USD from your linked Bank Account (takes around a week for the Bitcoin to show up in your online wallet)
  3. Sell Bitcoin(s) at a higher price on Coinbase
  4. Coinbase will credit your linked Bank Account (takes a few days for the money to show up in your Bank Account)

If you verify your identity on Coinbase you can buy INSTANTLY up to $1,000 at a time and up too $50,000 daily. You can then send the funds to another bitcoin wallet, another bitcoin exchange or a separate exchange such as Cryptsy   Poloniex to trade for Altcoins.

Mobile Flipping: Tab Trader

UPDATE: You can now buy and sell Bitcoins on the Coinbase Exchange

You can also use ShapeShift.io to instantly trade between Altcoins. Shapeshift also just realeased an iOS app making it very easy to exchange coins.

$ -->BTC Wallet--> Shapeshift--> ETH Wallet-->Shapeshift-->BTC Wallet-->$

If you want to flip Bitcoins in Person you can buy them on an online exchange and sell at a premium with:

(Another way you could flip them WAS between two exchanges using

Bitcoin Builder  2/20/14

  • Deposit btc
  • buy mt.gox btc
  • withdrawal to Coinbase or Bitstamp
  • sell on Coinbase or Bitstamp

Profit from the price difference. )

You can literally do this from any smartphone.

Like in any investment/trade , the more capital you have (are willing to risk) the more the potential reward on the investment.

The table below represents two of my profitable Bitcoin flips via Coinbase. The process is relatively easy and can even be done by SMS.

Huge synergy between 802.11 ac and LiFi

There will be a new light in the way that our personal devices receive data, and furthermore the way we connect with each other.

The 802.11ac standard operates on the 5GHz bandwidth. A lot of negative talk has been coming saying that because the new APS transmit at such a faster wavelength the person will have to be in range of the AP at all times and therefore this sort of network is not going to be any more efficient solution for the enterprise then that of 802.11n.

Here is the game changer. LiFi.

Scientist in China have our researching LED lightbulbs that have the ability to transmit data in nanoflickers(anagalous to switches). This technology is going to make transmitting data to devices up 10x faster than traditional wifi signals using radio waves.

Yes. This is real.

NEGATIVE 1

Your  personal device has to be in direct sight of the light bulb itself. But again, yet light waves in LEDS will be able to transmit data as long as your device is in sight of the light bulb itself.

Hmmm.

NEGATIVE 2

802.11ac does not allow transmissions to easily pass through walls and buildings because of the shorter wavelength.

(longer wavelength, greater distance, less speed; shorter wavelength, shorter distance, faster speed)

TWO NEGATIVES MAKE A POSITIVE!

LiFi and 802.11ac will ultimately make a revolutionizing positive and that is this:

You have a 802.11ac/5Ghz device/bluetooth/wifi direct/hotspot2.0 and your are in sight of a LED lightbulb with the capability to transmit data: You could end up looking for lightbulbs not only on their wattage but based on the data rates per second.

Huge synergy between 802.11 ac and LiFi

Bitcoin Market Price Soars! Time to BUY or SELL?

UPDATE(12:30 PM 11.4.13) Price of Bitcoin has gone up to 233 USD on Coinbase and 230 on Mt.Gox. Interesting, there usually is about a 10% price difference between the two exchanges. So once again the question is: Is the price of Bitcoin going to keep going up and exceed 250, 300 USD??

UPDATE (8:30 AM 10.22.13) LAST NIGHT I SOLD 1BTC I bought for 147 USD about a week ago for 183.99 USD. The original buy took about a week to show up in my  Coinbase wallet. However, The credit back into my bank account will be on October 24, 2013. Put it this way, it is faster to get my money back from Coinbase than it is from E-TRADE.

Today October 21, 2013 Bitcoin has reached its highest Price of One Bitcoin in USD since April 9, 2013.

On Coinbase the price is at ~ 181.00 USD

On Mt.Gox the price is at ~ 192.00 USD

So the big question is is this going to follow the same pattern that happened from April 2, 2013 – April 11, 2013; or is it Bitcoin maturing into a stable /currency/ commodity/security that will commandeer fiat currency transactions without the need for a third party international payments processor.

Whether or not its a bear or bull market at the moment, on thing is for certain. It is possible to make money on trading bitcoin not only on different exchanges but on the futures itself.

There is a quote somewhere that goes “any press, good or bad, is good press”. This is exactly what happened when news that the Silk Road market website was seized by the US government and closed down. The media covered the story, people starting saying whats all this about, did some research and maybe became a little more informed about digital currency, proxy servers, international black markets etc. However, the BIGGEST THING TO come of this was the drop in the price of Bitcoin on that same day just about three weeks ago. The price of BTC dropped significantly( on some markets back to under 100 USD). So if you were lucky enough to buy a couple of them right around that day (like myself), you just double up your real money on digital faith in something that more people kinda know about.

For real time data updates on the price of BTC checkout Bitcoin Charts

So what happens next?

Do you sell your Bitcoins hoping its going to crash like in April and use your money to buy and flip again?

or

Will Bitcoin level out sit at around 180 – 200$ for a while? Maybe sit at over 200$?

Motion QR

Motion QR- multiple sets of data to be blended together into a single graphic code that changes ten times a second.

Cellum Global CEO János Kóka announced a product expected to be in commercial use in early 2014. It is called “Motion QR”. Basically, it takes the traditional static QR and increases its capacity to store information. If regular QR is a picture, motion QR is a movie.  Advantages:

  • higher level of security
  • advanced storage capability,
  • secure storage of photos,
  • fingerprint storage

Smartphones globally:

  • transport and event ticketing.
  • personalized coupons.
  • even electronic ID cards.
  • photo IDs
  • passports
  • monthly transport passes
  • biometric data,

ALL can be displayed on a smartphone without risk of being copied or forwarded. Check out QuickuRLikes

“The essential property of the Motion QR code is that it can only be issued and sent to the user’s phone by the competent authority – a ticket issuing company, official ID card issuing authority, etc. – with the help of Cellum and its special encryption method,” Inotay explained. “But anyone can check the validity of the digital document with a freely-available reader app. This is in line with how printed passports can be read and checked by anyone, while only the competent authority can issue them. Just like a passport, the code can contain a photo and biometric ID, thus the system includes most features of chip-based ID’ing, while cutting heavily on distribution-related costs, offering a cheaper and simpler alternative. Encoding of the consecutive QR codes in the stream is redundant, highly secure and fault-tolerant. Still, it can be displayed as well as scanned by any smartphone. “
