At SuperLab.TV we're building experimental Internet of Things (IoT) platforms called Dr.Frankenstein's Dream Machines. Our open-source platforms provide engineers, students, designers and business development professionals an opportunity to learn about micro-controllers, sensors and advanced communication techniques; all within a small, vertical, self-contained platform.

DFDM Model 3 - Communications Platform


Model 2 - Temperature Monitoring

Model 3 Model 2

DFDM Model 3: Raspberry Pi and monitor, "floating" Altec Life Jacket Bluetooth speaker, Magic Jack "old school" ip telephone, pico wall projector, 7-port USB hub, Adafruit luminescent lighting, swivel base. Coming enhancements: Intel Galileo and Edison boards + Arduino seismometer and cell phone.

The DFDM Model 2 focuses on temperature sensors. This unit has a Raspberry Pi submerged in mineral oil. An ioBridge Gateway allows remote monitoring and control of a SparkFun air pump which can force cool air into the mineral oil to lower the temperature.

DFDM Model 1 - Vibration Monitoring


DFDM Model 1 Internal Lamp

The DFDM Model 1 focuses on vibration sensors. This unit incorporates an Arduino cellphone shield, accelerometer, geophone and an electric guitar pickup to demonstrate real time vibration monitoring with a graphical LCD (GLCD) and data logging to an SD card.

DFDM In-Home Workbench


DFDM Solar Workbench

The DFDM Development Platform starts with a Fitness Gear Weight Lifting Rack. Weight lifting racks are perfect structures for setting up a solid platform.
