Queen’s University’s Human Media Lab to unveil musical instrument for a flexible smartphone
KINGSTON - Researchers at the Human Media Lab at Queen’s University have developed the world’s first musical instrument for a flexible smartphone. The device, dubbed WhammyPhone, allows users to bend the display in order to create sound effects on a virtual instrument, such as a guitar or violin.
“WhammyPhone is a completely new way of interacting with sound using a smartphone. It allows for the kind of expressive input normally only seen in traditional musical instruments.” says Dr. Vertegaal.
In this project we will quickly create a ‘temperature monitor’ that measures the ambient temperature of a room or an outdoor space. The temperature is measured by TMP35 temperature sensor and is displayed on the 4Duino screen. The data is also sent to Thingspeak IoT platform which enables data logging over a period of time.
In this Instructable I'm going to show you how to take a small Pelican case and and Raspberry 1 B+ and turn it into a completely portable gaming system.I'm going to give you a working parts list, take you step by step on how to design and build your very own completely portable gaming system, and then at the end link some videos I've made that explain how to build it and load your software onto it, and hopefully make this build an easier and less daunting undertaking that it can sometimes seem to be.So sit back and relax as I instruct you on how to make your own gaming system that will be the envy of family, friends, and the occasional passerby.
The ESP8266 is a wonderful microcontroller. They can be purchased cheaply and have built in wifi. In this guide I will not go over how to flash the ESP8266 module with the basic firmware as this is covered on the http://ESP8266basic.com web site in detail. All the parts to build this project can be found on ebay for less than $10 shipped to the US.
Background:I initially wanted to build something because I was looking for a project to do, and finally wanted to do a project with SMD components. The considerably smaller size of the SMD components would allow me to make smaller PCBs, and open up the world of SMD components to me for future designs. I had built a word clock several years back following an Instructable, and thought that another clock would be fun (and give me an opportunity to give something back to the community). It would also have the benefit of being slightly useful after building it. Nixie tubes also just look really nice.There were many bumps along the way, and I learned a lot about using these small SMD components and reading the datasheet (did I say read the datasheet!).Follow along and I will show you how you can build one of your own!

Hi everyone!Today I'm going to show you how you can build your own business card/game console/whatever you can imagine that features a backlit I2C OLED display and an ATtiny85 Microprocessor. In this Instructable I'll tell you how a PCB that I designed actually functions, how you can build it, and what you can do with this functionality. If you already have an I2C screen hooked up to an ATtiny85, this Instructable can still be helpful if you're trying to get images to display or want to make menus, a game, and more.You're probably wondering what this thing actually is. It's just a simple printed circuit board with an onboard battery, screen, buttons, on/off switch, and processing unit. Think of it as a tiny Gameboy, that you can easily program to do a variety of things. Onward!
Hello and welcome to my first Instructable. I will show you how to send emails from any ESP8266 wifi module using Gmail server.This instructable relies on Arduino core for ESP8266 WiFi chip, which makes a self-contained microcontroller from it (no need of AT commands and master devices). You can connect sensors and get notified by email about changes.Before we begin Required hardware: Any ESP8266 (I'm using ESP8266-07 ebay link). In my case USB UART Board(I'm using FT232RL FTDI Serials Adapter Module ebay). Not needed if your board has usb port. Some jumper cables. WIFI router of course.List may be incomplete. Required software: Arduino Software Arduino core for ESP8266 WiFi chip Sketch with project and test code (ESP8266_Gmail_Sender.zip).
This is my Arduino Project. How to build an e-drum kit with Arduino?Hello dear reader!-Why doing such a Project?First of all because if you like these kinds of things, you will enjoy the work process really much. Second, because its really cheap compared to real e-drum kits and you will be able to save a huge quantity of money. Anyway, lets move on to the main part of this article.
A while ago I build a 10x10 LED-Coffetable with some of these WS2812 LEDs, but even if it is possible to play the old-school game Snake with a smartphone connected to it, I want something more special. So I decided to put a few more leds to it, arranged as a cube in order to get more possibilities creating animations as well as games and here we are: the RGB-Brick.I would like to thank the whole team of LED-STUDIEN who funded that project, but specially Dennis Jackstien as my contact person. Without their assistance I wouldn't be able to build this charming LED-Cube.
