Re-enginering the fundamental internet protocolls.

Modern Code, Networking

  • 0 Collaborators




Unravel is my project to reengineer the internet (DNS and up). It will replace messaging, chat, social networking, search, media and file shareing, and a whole lot more. It will be open source and alow anyone to build anything they want on top of it. It will be built to be secure, and provide privacy, veryfyability.

At its core Unravel will be a mesh distributed database with an API to access the data. It makes heavy use of checksums and ECC encryption for encryption and verification. It is written in C for maximum preformance, and is built to run on anything from an enbeded device, to a phone, a PC or a super computer.

I dont like what the internet has become. Especialy I don't like the cloud. Today most comunication online happens using walled guarden intermediaries who store and inspect and triage everything. There shouldnt need to be any intemidiares to do any of the things we want to do, but right now we have to. I think that who controls information matters. I think that privacy matters. I think the user should be in charge, of what they see, and who they comunicate with, the software they run, and what information they store and share.

Maybe the rest of the world dont care about any of this. Maybe everyone else is happy with the internet we have. I'm fine with that, I'm just not fine with there not being any other options. Thats what im doing, I'm building another option, because I can, and because someone should.

Peter M. created project Anti-Snoozer

Medium 2d4327fa 176e 4670 bb56 d89d25337ccf


Anti-Snoozer is a facial detection system for when people are falling asleep at the wheel. You have a camera, ideally on your dashboard, that detects when you’re rapid blinking, when your eyes are closing, when you’re yawning, as well as when you’re looking around too much.

When that’s detected, a sound alarm is activated, as well as the car’s hazard lights (if you have access to that) to warn the other drivers. In order to stop it, you can either look directly at the road, or raise your hand to signal, like in a boxing match, to stop the annoying sounds. There are other features, like text messages, that are sent to your loved ones, but those aren’t immediate feedback that you can have.

It consists of an Intel® RealSense™ camera on the dashboard and an Intel® Edison chip, which gives you all of the alarms. In the center is a computer. For this one, we use a thing called NUC. It’s just a “next unit of computing,” a tiny little computer—a Mac mini is probably the easiest comparison. It runs the operating system that can run the software, and it can be mounted anywhere. Ideally this would be integrated inside the car, and not as a third-party product.

They open sourced the whole technology, so anyone who wants to can play with the technology or build one for themselves. There are two chips inside.

The first chip is the Haswell chip that’s in all of our computers. The 3D camera does require a lot of processing power, because we’re doing facial recognition and we’re doing voice synthesis, but without the Internet. Normally, on something like your phone, voice-to-text and text-to-voice involves sending the file off to be processed and getting something back, but we want to do all that processing on board, so it took a pretty powerful chip.

The second chip is an Edison chip that comes from the Internet of things. If you use the camera as a sensor and you’re sensing “drowsy,” you need to set some alarms in order to attempt to wake the user. The Edison chip is used for that. It can connect via USB and send out alarms—noise, but you could also vibrate the chair or the wheel if it’s integrated in the car itself.

Peter M. created project Vehicle Rear Vision

Medium a1bc4b47 bb5b 46b4 b2c0 d2cc36b494e8

Vehicle Rear Vision

Why do we build Vehicle Rear Vision? Back-up collision has been a major problems, The U.S. Center for Disease Control reported that from 2001–2003, an estimated 7,475 children (2,492 per year) under the age of 15 were treated for automobile back-over incidents. About 300 fatalities per year result from backup collisions. By 2018 all the cars sold in United States will require a mandatory backup camera.

How do we solve the problem? Most of the cars in the market today still do not have backup camera, that includes about half of the the cars that's being sold in the US today, and much more than half across the globe. We can solve this problem by installing a camera on the back of the car, using the space of license plate.

Walabot will be able to detect the distance of the target closest to the vehicle.

Intel RealSense R200 camera will give us a greater detail on what's being seen, including low light situation.

Intel Joule developer kit is powerful enough to run RealSense cameras along with Walabot. Raspberry Pi isn't powerful enough to run a RealSense 3D camera, in which we can add a lot more features in the future that can improve functionalities of the car. Same version can be used with Pi with a normal USB camera, but it won't be good for night time.

Android phone/tablet being used to display the Backup Camera, this is to reduce the cost of an additional screen. iOS version can be built upon request.

Through of those components, we will be able to build an Rear End Vision that shows user the back of the car.

Victor J. created project Sonic the Hedgehog 2 HD

Medium bd198e70 779e 49c2 bccd a0939dc8c507

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 HD

From the very beginning of the project, S2HD has focused on maintaining the feel that has made Sonic 2 a classic while using new tools to re-imagine the original as it could have been were it made today. The game's art direction reflects this, but S2HD has also given equal attention to unseen essential elements in the physics and audio - the result of this is an unprecedented re-interpretation in high definition grapics, music, and gameplay of Sonic 2, which continues to set quality standards to this day.

We firmly believe 2D artwork is the foundation of Sonic's retro roots. With this in mind, our goal was to produce a similar shading style to the Japanese original concept artwork and set it in motion with hand-drawn animations. 20 years after Sonic 2's release, S2HD can now faithfully represent the original's cast of characters and environments in a world where technology no longer imposes artistic limitations.

Would like to introduce our new CTO, Farzad a Berkley EECS grad who's worked at Lawrence Berkley Labs for the last eight years and has taken over the soldering from me. So at least that has definitely improved!

Thanks John for joining DevMesh. Please post any projects, research or even development ideas you have here. There is a lot of interest in how factories can improve inefficiencies, be more automated through Commercial IoT and AI. Love to hear more about that kind of work

My name is Jack Finlay and I am currently studying for a Dual Masters. My Masters with which I started is Mechanical Engineering and I was then nominated to study a Masters in Mechatronic Systems. I will graduate, all being well, in June 2018. Right now I am studying for my Mechatronic Systems degree and my current projects involve using a combination of OPC UA and Microsoft Azure in order to send requests and receive responses to and from a server over the cloud. This should lay a firm foundation for my Mechanical Engineering final year project next year in which I will be attempting to implement cloud-based communication into a factory setting where this field has not really been considered yet.

My ambitions for the future very much revolve around the automation field so I think that this opportunity would give me the insight I need in order to discover what advancements need to made to bring the future to now.
