PALLA: a Spherical Wireless Input Device for Leisure Activities

PALLA used to control a virtual cube

PALLA is a spherical wireless input device that we developed for experimenting with motion sensing and physical interaction in leisure activities.

Based upon the Arduino Open Hardware prototyping platform and the FreeIMU sensor board, the device can detect a wide range of user inputs.

FreeIMU: an Open Hardware Framework for Orientation and Motion Sensing

FreeIMU is an ongoing research project which aims to design Open Hardware 9/10 DOM/DOF Inertial Measurement Units as well as easy to use Orientation and Motion Sensing libraries, built on top of the Arduino platform.
The goal of the FreeIMU Framework is to simplify the development of projects based upon the most powerful and new consumer grade inertial, magnetic and pressure sensors.

COIN: a distributed accounting system for peer to peer networks

This is the project I've created and developed for my Bachelor of Science degree at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Torino, Italy. During the project, mentored by Professor Giancarlo Ruffo, I worked on a decentralized accounting system for peer to peer networks.
