Hardware

A US engineer is trying to sell the idea of an open source drone detection system built out of shedloads of Raspberry Pi kits.

The Drone Shield, which is designed by John Franklin, will cost around $60 to $70 to set up. It will combine a, a signal processor, a microphone, and analysis software to scan for specific audio signatures and compare them against what known drones sound like.

Once a match is found, the Drone Shield then sends an e-mail or SMS to its owner and warns him or her to keep their head down.

Netflix has more than 50 open source projects

My team has become very fond of an open source tool called Browserify. It was originally designed to allow the Node.js modules to be used in the browser, but we’ve leveraged it as the primary component in our build process. Over the last year, it has helped us to turn our monolithic code into a set of independent, maintainable modules.
