Chaos Realms - Tabletop Role Playing Game (RPG)
Chaos Realms is a horror-themed, action adventure, tabletop board game that can be downloaded and printed, or played from any internet connected computer, laptop or mobile device. Chaos Realms is set in the not-to-distant future.
A powerful consortium of mega-corporations, known collectively as the New World Order, have divided the war torn planet into 10 districts or zones - each controlled by one of the mega-corps. Gangs of scavengers, raiders and slavers ravage the wastelands. War, famine, pestilence and death have conquered the land. Ancient aliens, angels and demonic entities now fight for control over planet Earth and its resources in an epic struggle that began billions of years ago in a galaxy far away.
Each adventure can be played within 4-6 hours and allows up to 6 players to solve puzzles, fight badguys and monsters in turn-based combat and advance your character as you survive the apocalypse. Visit wasteland settlements and trading posts to buy, sell and trade items scavenged in the wastelands.

Village of the Damned - Adventure Module
Village of the Damned is a Chaos Realms adventure set in the post-apocalyptic ruins of a not too distant future. A team of 2-6 players have been tasked with investigating the disappearance of a corporate spy who went missing while trying to discover the source of a mysterious magnetic anomaly, detected near the ruins of Hellertown.
Travel through nightmarish wastelands, battling grotesque undead and chaotic creatures. Uncover a dark and sinister plot which dates back to the dawn of humanity, while scavenging forgotten city ruins for food, weapons and pre-dark technology.
Planetary Weight Calculator
In this tutorial we will use Python code to build a universal weight calculator, which will calculate our weight on each planetary body within our Solar System. Our weight calculator will be based on Newton's universal gravitational constant, or G = 6.674×10−11 m3 kg−1 s−2. Next we must obtain the mass and radius of each planetary body, which can be obtained from NASA. For our application, we used the Planetary Fact Sheet from NASA.
The following calculations will be done using the metric system, except for weight measurements, which should be in pounds (lbs). Don't forget to convert from diameter to radius for each celestial body, if you are using the NASA Planetary Fact Sheet.
Alternative and Augmentative Communication
This article will show you how to transform your laptop into the ultimate alternative and augmentative communication device. This project requires a webcam and two downloads: Camera Mouse, which uses the webcam to track your eyes, and OptiKey, an optical keyboard that can be used to spell out words and phrases.
DIY - Tabletop Miniatures and Props
Follow along as we build various miniatures and set pieces for the Chaos Realms table-top role playing game. Using little more than cardboard, modeling clay, foam, random parts from models found at your nearest hobby/crafts store, along with rand debris found around your house, we will build props and set pieces that can be used for any modern, science fiction or post-apocalyptic table-top game.
If you are a seasoned game master looking to spruce up your games, or an amateur game designer looking to build your own set pieces for tabletop role-playing games...look no further. These game-design tutorials will guide you through the creative process of turning random pieces of cardboard, junk, lots of glue, every day items and layers upon layers of paint into fantastic miniature set pieces.
As an additional bonus, I offer tips and strategies on what types of things to be on the lookout for when collecting bits and pieces to add to your set piece; from sand and gravel, to small twigs and sticks.
Modern and Apocalyptic Miniatures (28mm)
Indie tabletop game designers and crafty game masters working on tabletop games set in a modern, science fiction or post-apocalyptic setting may enjoy adding the following miniatures to their games.
Apocalypse Survivors: The Men and The Women, by Wargames Factory, offers a variety of armed civilians from men and women to children.
US Soldiers from Mars Attacks, The Miniatures Game, provides a small army of elite military forces, which can also be used as corporate mercenaries or armed militias.
Additional miniatures have been re-purposed from the Call of Cthulhu boardgames by Richard Launius and Kevin Wilson, Science Fiction Armory by Spartan Scenics, and Dark Heaven Bones by Reaper Miniatures.
Environmental Scanner - Arduino-based Sensor Array
The Environmental Scanner project began as a simple Arduino-based, environmental monitoring and alert system. Featuring and array of Adafruit and SparkFun electronic sensors, Arduino Uno and an Ethernet shield, the Environmental Scanner will host a webpage containing sensor readings and alerts. This webpage will display the current sensor readings, which will refresh every few seconds and will send an alert when sensor levels exceed certain, predefined thresholds.
Facial Recognition Using Python and a Webcam
In this tutorial we will explore basic machine learning concepts by developing a simple facial recognition program in under 22 lines of code, using a webcam, Python 2.7, and the open source library OpenCV v2. OpenCV is a popular library for computer vision, which was originally written in C/C++, but now provides bindings for Python.
This tutorial is based on Shantnu Tiwari's python blog, which can be found at https://realpython.com/blog/python/face-detection-in-python-using-a-webcam/.
Raspberry Pi - Amazon Alexa Integration
This tutorial will show you how to integrate artificial intelligence and voice recognition into Raspberry Pi. The original tutorial can be found at (https://github.com/the-raspberry-pi-guy/Artificial-Intelligence-Pi) In order to integrate Amazon's Alexa with a Raspberry Pi 3, you will need the following components: Raspberry Pi, official Sense Hat and an Amazon Developer's account.
