Build Your Own Rover | Science and Technology https://go.nasa.gov/2sX6HHV
Have you ever wondered what it takes to build a rover like #NASA's #Curiosity #rover, part of the #Mars #Science #Laboratory #project?
Now students, hobbyists, and enthusiasts can learn about these skills....using plans and instructions from #JPL's #OpenSource #RoverProject.

#JPL #OpenSource #Rover #Project on #github
nasa-jpl/open-source-rover: A #buildityourself, 6-wheel #rover based on the rovers on #Mars! http://bit.ly/2DLJkHw
Uses #RaspberryPi #RPi #Camera #LCDpanel etc.


 
I use #Syncthing on a #Pi that sits in some place (not home) behind a firewall, I installed #Tor on it and can SSH to it via a hidden service, very convenient, so now that #RPi got a 2TB external HDD that has to be mounted manually (due to encryption). The #RPi is used for #backup and it works like charm, it is up without a problem for over a month now and keeps some tens of GB now.
Really very nice thing. I guess you can also use #Rsync via the hidden service, but that wouldn't be fast. The thing is, this way you can take the Pi to any place, hook it to the LAN there, wait 5 minutes (max) and SSH into it from all over the world. Off-site backup made easy, just drop the Pi at your grandmothers, hook it up to the router and go.

You can also do this without the external HDD and use a 512 GB micro SD.
