I decided to turn it into an ambient device, connected to the internet and capable of alerting me when things happen. Right now I’ve got it firing up with a new message arrives in my Gmail inbox, but really it could do anything – flag up Twitter replies, indicate the chance of rain or even, paired with one of my previous projects, act as an additional ringer for the doorbell. I’ve added a row of LEDs (three red, three yellow) to give it some more feedback options.
This game can be written and uploaded to an Arduino Leonardo (and likely other Arduino boards) so it can be played between two players. This game can be written and uploaded to an Arduino Leonardo (and likely other Arduino boards) so it can be played between two players. The objective of the game is to press your button 50 times before the other player can. The code can be found below, and follow the images for instructions on wiring with the breadboard.
The device is based on a GSM/GPRS module with included GPS. Its main function is to detect and communicate its own geographical position using, on the choice, the cellular phone reference system or the GPS.
Today we introduce you a robot fish that is able to swim and recognize tank edges and obstacles. We'll find out how we can easily create it with common insulating material and a few servo motor controlled by Arduino.
The Lira is a microcontroller (a tiny, tiny computer) based on the popular Arduino architecture. It was designed to fulfill the following requirements:
Tiny (2.15" x 0.85"; ~1.8 square inch board area).Inexpensive (<$15 unit cost, even in Quantity: 1).Easy to build (even by those with little soldering experience).Compatible with the Arduino IDE, Arduino C and hardware commonly used with the Arduino.Open Source and free to build, modify and distribute!
Usually you use eagle to design your printed circuit boards (PCBs) only in 2 dimensions (when not considering the layers as 3rd layer). This gives you some headaches for narrow space designs like in small cases.
We are excited to announce that the new Arduino GSM Shield is ready to be shipped allowing Arduino boards (Uno, MEGA and Leonardo) to explore the wonders of adding a GPRS/GSM connection to interactive projects.
Bio Circuit explores the interrelations of humans and the environment through wearable computing. The vest is a wearable soundscape that uses the wearer’s physiological state to provide bio feedback of their own state of calmness or anxiety. This is provided in the form of recorded sounds the wearer hears through a speaker embedded in the collar of the vest. If the wearer’s heart rate is low, the soundscape will reflect a quiet, natural area with sounds such as water, birds, and in- sects. If the wearer has a high heart rate, they will hear a cacophony of urban sounds such as people talking and traffic.
As the field of embedded electronics gets more advanced, hobbyists and professionals are both in need of smaller and more powerful computers. We've been looking for awhile and now we've found one that we really like, not only because it's small and fast but because it's also Arduino shield compatible! The pcDuino is a high performance, cost effective mini PC platform that runs full-featured operating systems such as Ubuntu and Android ICS.
Ardusumo is a universal platform to build robots on wheels that can move around avoiding obstacles using infrared sensors and follow routes marked with dark lines on a white background.
We have created Ardusumo to bring young students to the world of robotics: if suitably programmed, Ardusumo allows robots to perform various autonomous movements, it integrates sensors and actuators of various types with wheels and electric motors.
The platform is Arduino based but consists of a single molded frame that is both mechanical and electronic circuit. It has also various possible assembly, thanks to the modularity and versatility of the connections.
What can be more annoying than those TV commercials on steroid? Here you are watching your favorite TV show when all of a sudden you are ambushed by a very loud TV commercial sending you scrambling for the remote control to turn down the volume.
