Before the “digital age” many families used wall calendars to show a monthly view of upcoming events. This modern version of the wall mounted calendar includes the same basic functions: A monthly agenda Sync of family members activities Easy browse between monthsBeyond those basic functions this gadget will also handle: A whether forecast Upcoming events in the surrounding area Live information about the public transport And even more...

We’re very excited to announce that starting today Arduino 101* (USA only) and Genuino 101 (Outside USA) made in collaboration with Intel, are available for purchase exclusively on the Arduino Stores at the price of $30/€28,65 (+ tax).
If an Arduino program crashes in the forest, will it make a sound? Unfortunately not. No blue screen of death, nor jarring squawk will alert you to the program’s doom. It will typically just quietly and unobtrusively stop running whatever robot, keypad or front door it is supposed to be looking after. In this article, I’ll show you how to use the watchdog timer to help track down the bug causing the lockup. But first, there’s a quick review of the watchdog timer itself for those new to the game.
There are many different ways to keep your plants watered on a schedule. [Luca Dentella] just created a new one by building the irrighino watering system. He used standard off the shelf, hardware to keep it simple.
[ZPriddy] was looking for a way to control his Nest thermostats with Amazon Echo. He didn’t want to settle for using AWS or some other hosted service. [ZPriddy] wanted something that he could host and manage completely on his own.
Yes, it's another barebones Arduino, but the additional prototyping space makes it a unique and very handy board to have. The Atmega328 is socketed, so if you do something crazy, you are back in business for under $5.
The situation was that I was only able to transmit and receive through 2 or 3 walls with a distance of about 50 feet, using standard nRF24L01+ modules. This was insufficient for my intended use. I had earlier tried adding recommended capacitors, but for me and my hardware got very little to no improvement. So, please ignore them in the photos.For my remote sensors I did not want the bulk of a unit like a nRF24L01+PA+LNA with a SMA Mount and exterior antenna. So I created this modified module.With this modified RF24 module I could go through four walls with a distance of about 100 feet.This module should also nearly double the distance over a standard nRF24 module when used with line of sight applications; like RF planes, quad-coppers, cars and boats (100s of meters).
More and more home automation projects are integrated into an Internet of Things (IoT) perspective. For example, you want to monitor what’s going on in your home remotely, no matter if you are in your living room or at the other end of the world.
A while back, we got a set of weather sensors from Sparkfun. It includes a Anemometer (speed), Wind Vane (direction), and a Rain Gauge. I used a hand held wind speed device to calibrate my Arduino code.
The ESP8266 is an amazing chip for all your home automation & Internet of Things projects. This chip costs less than $5, has WiFi connectivity, an onboard processor, and is compatible with the Arduino IDE.
This project uses a simple IR Transmitter (in this case I used a Max Power LED kit to extend the range but any IR LED would do) connected to a spark-core, to send IR commands to the Air conditioning unit over the internet.
