We do magical things with Power (with a Raspberry Pi as our assistant!)
Alchemy Power Inc.
Pi-Zero size connector for a Raspberry Pi. Use the Raspberry Pi to its full extent. Connect multiple GPIOs to multiple sensors and other electronic devices using PiZ-EzConnect.
Breadboards were frustrating at best. The jumper-wires kept popping off. I needed a secure connection method. I also needed to connect multiple sensors easily.
1) Secure connections. You can tug on it (up to a rated force of the connector) and the wire will not come off. 2) Using spacers, once the board is securely mounted, the wires and the boards are secure. 3) Has the Power and ground connections. 4) Has the front row (odd numbered pins of the Pi header) GPIO pins already soldered. Includes two additional terminal blocks. Terminal blocks are 3.5 mm spaced blocks. These are readily available. 5) Includes the header block for the Pi-Zero. If you have already soldered one, use it elsewhere or resell it. If you do not have one soldered for Pi-Zero, no need to hunt around for one. 6) Small size. 7) Works with all Raspberry Pi models with a 40 pin header. 8) Mounting screw holes match a Raspberry Pi. Secure the board using M2.5 spacers.

We recognize our top users by making them a Tindarian. Tindarians have access to secret & unreleased features.
We look for the most active & best members of the Tindie community, and invite them to join. There isn't a selection process or form to fill out. The only way to become a Tindarian is by being a nice & active member of the Tindie community!
Percy Kawas is the founder, CEO, chief Alchemist, main geek ..... of Alchemy Power Inc. (API), a company started to collect power from the wind in an efficient manner leveraging Bernoulli’s principles. The XPS-1600 is the first product which meets that goal. Measuring the performance on the XPS-1600 and my familiarity with Unix+software/hardware led me to use the Raspberry Pi. I loved the fact that the Raspberry Pi is a low cost Linux Computer, with access to GPIOs and other capabilities. It amazes me how the user community have used this product in many different ways!!!
Percy has also designed and implemented several hardware and software projects. The most recent ones can be found on API website and on Tindie. Percy has worked at large companies like AMD, Cisco, SynOptics (Bay Networks/Nortel/gone-under) and created multiple startups. Percy has also been an independent consultant for several years, taught courses at UC Berkeley extension and other places. Percy loves to referee soccer, field hockey, read, watch Nature and Science programs, hike and travel.
