At SuperLab.TV we're building experimental Internet of Things (IoT) platforms called CubeNukes. Our open-source platforms provide engineers, students, designers and business development professionals an opportunity to learn about micro-controllers, sensors and advanced communication techniques.

CubeNuke Mod 1 - Vibration Monitoring


CubeNuke Mod 2 - Temperature Monitoring

Model 1 Model 1

The CubeNuke 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.

The CubeNuke 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.

CubeNuke Mod 3 - Centrifugal Fusion


Every cubicle should have a CubeNuke

The Mod 3 was the inspiration for the CubeNuke name. This idea is an alternative method for creating nuclear fusion. Most small nuclear fusion generators use high voltage and magnetic containment to force deuterium atoms to collide. The Mod 3 incorporates a high speed motor to rotate a steel pulley wheel. The pulley wheel has a lip that holds liquid deuterium in place while spinning under high G-forces.
