Battery metals such as cobalt, manganese, molybdenum, graphite and lithium will help power the electric vehicle revolution in the coming decades. They will also allow sustainable clean energy to become a reality. That’s why we have taken strategic stakes in mining companies that search, develop and extract these battery metals ethically from politically secure countries. Many of these companies also invest significantly in the refineries that bring these metals to the global marketplace. Furthermore, we also have exposure to other metals such as gold, which will provide a steady and reliable cashflow in the future, helping turn our vision into reality.

The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It is a capable little computer which can be used in electronics projects, and for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays high-definition video. We want to see it being used by kids all over the world to learn how computers work, how to manipulate the electronic world around them, and how to program.
"Arduino started in 2005 as a project for students at the Interaction Design Institute Ivrea in Ivrea, Italy. At that time program students used a ""BASIC Stamp"" at a cost of $100, considered expensive for students. Massimo Banzi, one of the founders, taught at Ivrea. The name ""Arduino"" comes from a bar in Ivrea, where some of the founders of the project used to meet. The bar itself was named after Arduino, Margrave of Ivrea and King of Italy from 1002 to 1014.
Arduino is a single-board microcontroller, intended to make building interactive objects or environments more accessible.The hardware consists of an open-source hardware board designed around an 8-bit Atmel AVR microcontroller, or a 32-bit Atmel ARM. Current models feature a USB interface, 6 analog input pins, as well as 14 digital I/O pins that accommodate various extension boards.
A hardware thesis was contributed for a wiring design by Colombian student Hernando Barragan. After the Wiring platform was complete, researchers worked to make it lighter, less expensive, and available to the open source community. The school eventually closed down, so these researchers, one of them David Cuartielles, promoted the idea.
The current prices run around $30 and related ""clones"" as low as $9. A simple Arduino Mini Pro clone may be had from China for less than $4, post paid. Today Arduino has become one of the leading proudcers of micrcontroller boards. Arduino boards can be purchased pre-assembled or as do-it-yourself kits. Hardware design information is available for those who would like to assemble an Arduino by hand. It was estimated in mid-2011 that over 300,000 official Arduinos had been commercially produced, and in 2013 that 700,000 official boards were in users' hands.
Arduino has since become an example of how, thorugh effective branding and community building operations, an open source business model is effectively viable. Its boards are at the heart of the maker and Fab Lab movements and its systems are now beginning to attract the attention of leading companies worldwide. For Italy, Arduino represents a possible comeback after years of eroding and deteriorating industrial potential. The only possible controversy in this regard being Massimo Banzi's association with Media Tycoon Carlo de Benedetti within the Make in Italy Foundation (which promotes Fab Labs and maker activities in Italy) and thus representing that same establishement that the maker movement seeks to disrupt.
The Alligator Board is designed to be a complete and reliable solution as RepRap 3D printer electronic control board. The base module features everything you need to build a standard 3D printer, and with the expansion piggy this is the most complete solution for complex 3D printers
It is based on the 32 bit Cortex M3 ATSAM3X8EA microcontroller (Arduino Due CPU). This represents a big step towards greater computing power, compared to the existing solution based on 8 bit mcu. This product is well suited for any kind of 3D printer, and is the ideal solution for Delta models, requiring more complex computation.
