Is it possible to have too many fully automatic foam dart guns?A month ago, I would have told you that it is absolutely not possible. Then my wife gave me an (See how my #Arduino powered Nerf gun guards my office; I've dubbed it "The Office Sentinel!
Plug your DIY 3 pin cable from your vault to your Arduino (a.k.a Suicide Key) then connect your Arduino board to your PC (via USB). Upload the codes then press "CTRL + Shift + M" to access Serial Monitor.
Galileo is a microcontroller board based on the Intel® Quark SoC X1000 Application Processor, a 32-bit Intel Pentium-class system on a chip . It’s the first board based on Intel® architecture designed to be hardware and software pin-compatible with Arduino shields designed for the Uno R3.
Boffin dreams up smart battery gizmo for Raspberry Pi fiddlers Register Raspberry Pi-packing makers who are devising mobile projects or seeking to set up stationary Pi-based devices that operate beyond the reach of the mains will get a big jolt of...
With Arduino you can really make so many fun and useful projects, especially to facilitate some tasks at home. In this article we will see how to use the Arduino to remotely turn on a lamp, or any device that is connected to the outlet of our home.
One of the first things anyone does when they start working with the Arduino is to connect it to a potentiometer and control the brightness of and LED or move a servo. Well, a rotary encoder may look like a potentiometer, but other than also having a knob, it is basically the complete opposite.
I've completed a new release of the Connector/Arduino. The new version supports a few refinements and a new feature.
New! disconnect() method - enables disconnect from server. Note: you must call mysql_connect() to reconnect.
Better error handling for dropped packets. No more random reboots when bad packet appears.
Library can recover from short-term loss of connectivity. Along with bad packets is a check to make sure what is received is valid making the connector ignore garbage packets associated with a dropped connection.
Detection of Out of Memory condition. Should there not be enough memory to allocate the buffer for the Connector, you will see an OOM error (enable the serial monitor to see the errors). This reduces random reboots when memory gets too low.
If your project needs a higher voltage rail than is already available in the circuit, you can use an off-the shelf step-up device. But when you want a variable output voltage, it’s less easy to find a ready-made IC. However, it’s not complicated to build such a circuit yourself, especially if you have a microcontroller board that’s as easy to program as an Arduino.
Design engineers get to experiment on internet radio using BeagleBone Black Electronics News Since its launch in May 2013, the BeagleBone Black, a lower-cost, high-expansion board, has been a popular new member of the BeagleBoard family.
Now this is just a quick post, but since I've done this a few times this last week I thought I'd put it online. This is how to add the Adafruit USB Wifi Dongle to your Raspberry Pi via command line. I'm using the Pi headless and I find an extra keyboard mouse and monitor on my desk makes me confused. I'm forever picking up the wrong mouse and typing on the wrong keyboard.
Sleep is serious business and you'll find a ton of different ways to improve it with tracking or special alarm clocks. Instructables user derwassi wanted to combine a bunch of these types of ideas into one and built a sunrise alarm clock that also tracks tracks your sleep
The SHT15 is a digital humidity sensor that outputs a fully calibrated humidity reading. And… because what we are measuring is actually relative humidity, and relative humidity being relative to temperature, the SHT15 has a builtin digital thermometer. This makes things much easier to work with than sensors without a thermometer onboard....
The Robotics Cape works with the BeagleBone Black, powered by a TI Sitara processor, to make a mobile robotics platform. It includes 2-cell lithium battery charging, protection and monitoring circuitry to make sure the robot is always charged and ready to play with. The Robotics Cape also provides plug-and-play connectors to easily interface with common components so you can build your robot without soldering or messy wiring.
