Programmable POV Fidget Spinner: 13 Steps

Programmable POV Fidget Spinner: 13 Steps | Open Source Hardware News | Scoop.it
Fidget spinners are fun, and you can find one at about any check-out counter for just a few bucks these days, but what if you could build your own? And it had LEDs? And you could program it to say or show whatever you wanted? If that sounds geeky cool, THIS IS THE PROJECT FOR YOU.I've always been interested in using blinking LEDs to get kids interested in programming. The most simple project with an Arduino microcontroller is to blink an LED on and off. Then you get them to see how fast an LED can blink before it looks like it is on continuously (about 12 millisecond intervals). Then you shake the LED back and forth and you can see it blink again! This phenomena is call "persistence of vision" (POV) and is how this project works. It can lead to discussions of both how the eye works an

Sponge Bot: 25 Steps (with Pictures)

Sponge Bot: 25 Steps (with Pictures) | Open Source Hardware News | Scoop.it
This Sponge Bot demonstrates how through the addition of a simple mechanism, we can add a large amount of complexity to a robot. Using virtually the same electronics as my Single Motor Bot, we are able to make an entirely different and much more complex bot. This simple Sponge Bot uses a slider crank mechanism to translate rotational motion into a back and forth scissor-like motion. In this way, even though the motor is rotating in a single direction, the legs seem to be moving back and forth in two directions. By using mechanical systems we are able to gain a wide range of motions from a single rotating motor. For a crash course in robotics, check out my Robot Class.

LUMOS: Smart Lamp for Better Sleep: 6 Steps (with Pictures)

LUMOS: Smart Lamp for Better Sleep: 6 Steps (with Pictures) | Open Source Hardware News | Scoop.it
There are plenty of smart lighting systems out there that let you change light colors and dim with just your smartphone (or even your voice), but this Open Source lamp called Lumos is a smart lighting system that works to benefit your health.Lumos mimics the natural light of the sun as it passes overhead each day, generating bright blue light in the morning and warmer amber light in the evening. Decades of research from Harvard Medical School , NASA , and leading institutions around the world have revealed a great deal of information about how light impacts and regulates our health. They explain that blue light aids in the production of cortisol, which is important to give the human body energy in the morning, and red light aids in the production of sleep-inducing melatonin. Almost 20% of the world's population is sleep deprived & possibly spends more than 8 hour

Richard Platt's curator insight, August 3, 11:18 PM

The new LoRa products are designed for applications including automated meter reading, home and building automation, wireless alarm and security systems, industrial monitoring and control, and other long range IoT applications including “wisdom agriculture,” says Gumstix. The power-efficient LoRa technology offers ultra-long range spread spectrum communication with high interference immunity, and can work in both indoor and outdoor settings.  RisingRF’s RHF0M301 LoRa Gateway and Concentrator Module enables 5 to 15km LPWAN (Low-Power Wide-Area Network) communications, including LoRaWAN networking. The module provides high stability, as well as multi-channel and multi-spread factor receiving, says Gumstix.

Arduino Portable EKG Monitor: 4 Steps (with Pictures) | Open Source Hardware News | Scoop.it
Build a Portable EKG / ECG Monitor for less than 70U$!What a great time it is to be a maker! The proliferation and popularity of Open source hardware and software, like the Arduino and Raspberry PI, have made it possible for makers to build all kinds of Gadgets. The by- product market of peripherals, like sensors, displays, and communication modules for these microcontrollers has also skyrocketed. You can now build devices to sense virtually any physical phenomena and display the results either locally on a attached display, or remotely via a Bluetooth or Wi-Fi module to a pc or smartphone. This instructable is a good example of how easy it is now to build a practical tool that can help improve your life by monitoring your heart. I hope it inspirers both beginning and experienced makers to keep on building.According to Wikipedia the definition of EKG is:"Electrocardiography (ECG or EK

Eco Friendly Metal Detector - Arduino: 7 Steps (with Pictures) | Open Source Hardware News | Scoop.it
Metal Detecting is a lot of fun. One of the challenges is being able to narrow the exact place to dig to minimize the size of the hole left behind.This unique metal detector has four search coils, a color touch screen to identify and pinpoint the location of your find.Incorporating auto calibration, a USB rechargeable power pack, with four different screen modes, frequency, and pulse width adjustment which allows you to customize how you search.Once you have pinpointed the treasure a single hole centered above each coil enables you to use a wooden skewer to push into the earth so you can start to dig a small plug from the ground reducing damage to the environment.Each coil can pinpoint detect coins and rings at a depth of 7-10cm so is ideal for looking for lost coins and rings around parks and beaches.********************************** Please Vote - If you like this instructabl
