Meet the world’s first smart fingerprint padlock

With TAPP, you no longer have to worry about lost keys or forgotten combination codes.

Padlocks are great for securing your belongings, but they’re a hassle to deal with if you lose the keys or forget the combination code. And with a quick search online, anyone can learn how to pick a lock. Not very useful anymore, is it? Well, the team at Pishon Labs has a 21st century solution to this problem.


Meet TAPP, the smart access padlock that opens with your unique fingerprint, no key or combination code needed. The Toronto-based team came up with TAPP because they feel that traditional units are inconvenient and outdated.

TAPP uses a cutting edge encrypted fingerprint sensor, and grants access with just a tap in 0.8 seconds. Have you accessed a lock any faster? Unlike other padlocks, TAPP has a built-in alarm that will activate if the lock is cut or if anyone without authorization tries to open it. Or if you want to grant access to certain people, the accompanying app will let you authorize up to 200 fingerprints. You can even customize the time, location and duration of access. TAPP can be used for multiple purposes because it’s water resistant and can withstand rain and snow.


There are two versions of TAPP available. TappLock has a lithium-ion battery, which can last up to three years on one charge, while TappLock Lite is equipped with a replaceable battery that can last up to six months. Both have Bluetooth 4.1. integration, allowing you to use your phone as the key to your lock and to receive real-time updates on its remaining battery life.

Interested? Head over to TAPP’s Indiegogo page, where the Pishon Lab team has already doubled their goal of $40,000. Delivery is expected for Nov. 2016.

MobileNode is a circular IoT board

This open source, Arduino-compatible GSM/GPRS and GPS/GLONASS device provides real-time data anywhere, about anything.

The MobileNode is an open source IoT board, which was named a semi-finalist in last year’s Hackaday Prize and is now live on Indiegogo. Measuring just seven centimeters in diameter, the circular device is equipped with an ATmega32U4 MCU at its core, a GPS/GLONASS module for tracking and a GSM/GPRS chip for data transmission.


Makers can easily attach a variety of sensors to the MobileNode, including air quality (CO, CO2, O2, etc.), temperature, humidity, fire and motion, as well as add lights, servo motors and other electronic circuits. This enables the Arduino-compatible board to monitor air pollution, reduce energy consumption, collect real-time data, and even control food production machinery. What’s more, there are four holes for M1.2 or M1.4 screws, making it possible to house the MobileNode inside a box or case.


Every MobileNode comes with an attached tag, which contains both a public and private key. As its creators Oscar Rojas and Camilo Rojas reveal, you can push data to the cloud with the private key, while accessing such information via the public key. Meanwhile, GPS coordinates are shown in a Google Map along with the board’s orientation data given by its e-compass.


Aside from all that, MobileNode features an electret microphone that lets users hear what is happening nearby, a Nano SIM card socket, TVS diodes and Bluetooth. It is also possible to connect an external antenna to the GPS module, since some applications call for the MobileNode to be used indoors.

SprayPrinter turns digital designs into wall art

This smart spray paint device helps you create wall art — no art skills required.

Have you ever walked past a cool mural or graffiti, and wished you could create large scale artwork in your own home or office? You can now with SprayPrinter, a spray paint device that reproduces images from your smartphone to any wall.


The Estonia-based team behind the gadget boasts SprayPrinter as the 21st century way of designing walls. The SprayPrinter works similar to a dot matrix printer, except it is made up of two key components: a clip-on unit that controls the spray paint nozzle and the accompanying smartphone app that converts and sends images to the SprayPrinter. Together, the app maps the image to the wall, and the smartphone camera tracks the position of the spray paint can so it knows exactly when to tell it to release the dots of paint.


You can be making art like Banksy in three easy steps. First, you choose from the app what design you want printed on the wall. Then, you activate the SprayPrinter attachment and simply move the can along the wall. The app breaks down the chosen image into pixels, and communicates with the spray paint can on releasing paint at the precise location. The app will also host artwork by artists, designers and photographers.

Intrigued? Head over to the project’s Indiegogo page, where its team is currently seeking $20,000. You can start designing any wall with SprayPrinter for the price of $149. The first batches of units are set for delivery by December 2016.

Tinylab is a tablet-sized, fully-integrated prototyping kit

Tinylab provides Makers with a fully-integrated environment for the same price as an Arduino shield.

Safe to say, there’s no shortage when it comes to open source prototyping boards like Arduino. In fact, recent studies suggest that the number of installed hardware dev kits will nearly double from 11 million units in 2014 to 21 million in 2020. But shouldn’t there be a more effective way to bring an idea to life? Between the breadboard, wires, cables and soldering, traditional processes can take a bit longer and become more complicated than desired for Makers. Not to mention, when employing Arduino shields, you generally can’t stack more than a few due to pin overlaps. This was something that Bosphorus Mechatronics looked to solve.


And so the Istanbul-based startup launched Tinylab — a tablet-sized, open source platform that contains everything you’d possibly need when developing a project. There’s an Arduino at the heart, along with over 20 I/O and all the necessary modules, circuits and components to streamline the prototyping phase.

To get started, simply open up its cap, plug in a USB cable and upload your Arduino sketch. Tinylab is built around the mighty ATmega32U4 — the same MCU found at core of the Arduino Leonardo — and features sockets for XBee, Bluetooth, ESP8266 and nRF24xx modules, in addition to an LCD screen, a microSD reader, a seven-segment display, a real-time clock, a relay, a potentiometer, external EEPROM, a piezo buzzer, a rotary encoder, a DC motor driver, a temperature sensor, a photoresistor, a few buttons, and LEDs.


“Combine all these things and make your own recipe easily. All of the things are onboard excluding wireless features. There are attachable modules. There are sockets for them on board. If there’s a need to communicate something, just attach and code it,” the team explains. “For all the other things that the board doesn’t include, there is a tiny breadboard”

As if that wasn’t enough, Tinylab is platform agnostic and can be programed in Windows, Linux and Mac OS. It’s also compatible with today’s most popular environments, including Arduino IDE, Atmel Studio 7, Visual Studio, Scratch, Codebender and Eclipse. Designed with portability in mind, Tinylab can be thrown in your bag, taken wherever you need to go and is ready for use right out of the box.


“Arduino is our hero, we mostly design around it and we realized that we use some common components with it generally. Every time, we need to make same circuits to display, send or sense something,” founder Ahmet Sait Borlak tells TechCrunch. “Using a breadboard turns a torture and using stackable shields doesn’t serve the purpose generally. So we think the Tinylab can be the painkiller. So we designed it, used it and love it… Also, it’s perfect for education. Because it’s compatible with MIT’s Scratch we think it can take place in school laboratories.”

Intrigued? Tinylab is entirely open source, and its schematics and layouts can be found on GitHub. Bosphorus Mechatronics has launched the kit on Indiegogo, where the crew is currently seeking $25,000. The first batch of units is expected to ship early this summer.
