This short tutorial explains how to use the Arduino as a USB to DMX interface for software that works with OpenDmx. This USB to DMX interface enabled you to use your PC as a DMX master device to control DMX slave devices.
So we decided that a good project would be to write a small program to do this for her and turn on a different colored LED depending on whether school was closed, delayed, or operating normally.
Unfortunately, I couldn't find any sort of API offered by the school system that would provide school operating status information in an easily digestible form such as JSON or XML so we just scraped the status page for the information we needed.
It is 2014 and control-schemes on touch screens still pretty much suck. Yes, touch is suited for a lot of games, but it just doesn’t work for shooters and racing games. That’s why there are companies like MOGA making game controllers specifically designed for phones.
I decided to make my own with an ATTiny connected to Windows Phone over Bluetooth.

RobotChallenge is an international championship for self-made, autonomous, and mobile robots taking place in Vienna (Austria) since 2004. Each year robots compete in different competitions – Robot Sumo, Line Follower, Air Race, Humanoid Sprint, Puck Collect and Freestyle . This year RobotChallenge in cooperation with Arduino and RS Components presents a new open source competition called: ”Hack the Arduino Robot!”.
The houses in Durban, South Africa (where I live) usually have some form of gap underneath them that ranges from 30cm to big enough to crawl inside. As far as I know it is for ventilation to help with the heat. The problem is that a bunch of squeaky rodents have decided that mine is a good home, and unfortunately the gap is pretty small so I can’t fit. So I decided to make a little car that could go scout out the area and show me what was going on under there, and possibly how to stop it.
So I built a little Bluetooth controlled car using a Netduino and a Windows Phone as a remote.
Node-Red in its simplest form is an open source visual editor for wiring the internet of things produced by IBM. What does this mean? Well for someone lazy like me it means I can spend more time making stuff "talk" to each other than worrying about all of the interfacing code I will need to write.
I’ve been involved with NOAA Weather Radio for some time and Arduino is a recent passion of mine over the last couple of years. When I found out about the Silicon Labs Si4707 Weather Band IC, it only made sense that I try to use my hardware knowledge and try and come up with a breakout board to make this capability available to the public.
