Hey people, I'm building an AI-powered non-invasive myoelectric neural interface, because every decent product I found was swallowed by surveillance corporations (Facebook, Google) - the last institutions I'd trust with neural interfaces. It's open hardware & free software, of course.

Check it out: hut.pm/myocular.html

There's still a lot of work to do, and I'd appreciate tips on:
- Neural networks
- Signal processing
- Microcontrollers
- Electromyography in general
- Anything else, really

Die DLR betreibt ein Gewächshaus in der Antarktis, dass so ähnlich auch auf dem Mond funktionieren würde:

Having shredded & baked seeds with whole seeds along some more shredded & baked seeds with whole seeds and a drink of extract from roasted & shredded seeds for , and you?

Kids, don't blow out candles with hair dryers. The liquid wax goes all over the place.

I gave up trying to solder stray pieces of electronics and put them in hot glue for stability and instead designed & ordered my first PCB 🤯 This should work better. Unless I messed up the design, which is quite likely^^'

I just wanted to solder together 7 components and embed them in hot glue, but somehow this is not working. I'm beginning to suspect that I'm doing something wrong.

Most inefficient packaging I've yet to witness.

30x24x11cm package for a 12x7x0.2cm plastic bag containing 2x0.6x0.2cm of cargo.

Package to cargo ratio: 33000.

Trying to test an SMD chip on a breadboard. It feels like I have lost control of my life.

when i was 15 years old i had chat accounts on four services which i interacted with entirely through Pidgin and that's how I talked to all my friends.

Annoyed by the lack of tray icon for the desktop app?

Just start it with --use-tray-icon =)

Roman Anin has been released, but has to appear for questioning on Monday. His electronic devices have been confiscated.

This is a good reminder to encrypt your phone memory, and use full disk encryption on your laptop and external storage, especially if you're working in journalism.

Great alternatives to that check all the boxes (, , , , -free):

- : briarproject.org
- : delta.chat
- : matrix.org
- / : xmpp.org (It aged very well, supports signal-like encyption and battery-efficient mobile apps now. If you dismissed it in the past, I encourage you to give it another try.)

Updated reminder of why is far from optimal:

- No : every account is tied to a phone number
- Not , until recently. Server source code was undisclosed for a year to hide their plans to turn Signal into a bank
- No
- Dark UI pattern: The PIN feature (enabled by default) uploads your contacts to the cloud without informing the user, albeit encrypted.
- Tries to be a bank

Every now and then I mention https://publiccode.eu/ to people and realize that not everyone has heard about it yet.

Here it is! Sign it, share it, email a politician or something.

I wonder now if Elon's "use #Signal" tweet happened because he was in on the action.
