Hi!In this Instructable I will tell you how to make a good looking smartphone alarm clock. The alarm clock displays the time, can charge the phone and houses a mini amplifier and speaker. I had the idea to build this alarm clock for a long time but the "Time" contest helped me to get started. The design is inspired by the Areaware alarm clock. I loved the design and simplicity from the first moment I saw it. The disadvantage was that the costs where a little bit high for only a piece o
Let’s equip Arduino with a serial-interface JPEG Camera with IR and try two applications: the first one saves shots (on a SD-card) at regular intervals while the second uses a PIR sensor to detect intrusions and photograph what happens. Recently, miniaturized cameras with serial communication interface have been launched on the market. Compared to traditional cameras, they offer easier integration with Arduino or other microcontroller-based boards. It is quite easy to understand that using
Hi,in this instuctable you will learn how to make world clock weather bot using Arduino Mega and ESP8266 (AT mode).Features:• personalized bot with LCD screen as mouth, potentiometer as nose and green LEDs as eyes• choosing wanted city/country by using serial communication• saving wanted city/country into EEPROM memory• getting geolocation data, weather data and country code using OpenWeatherMap API and ESP8266• getting local time using TimezoneDB API and ESP8266• p

Since I can remember I always wanted to build a mecanum wheel robot. The mecanum wheel robotic platforms available on the market were a little too expensive for me so I decided to build my robot from scratch.Like no other robot meacanum wheel robot can move across without any difficulty. This feature makes it unique and allows for easy maneuvering in tight spaces without the need to rotate in place. Well, it's time to get down to work!Parts needed in this project: Arduino Mega 2560 x1 TB6612FNG
This instructable is about using a laser engraver/cutter. What can you do with it? Engrave someting on your notebook, plastic, phone case, wallet, wood, cardboard and cut paper and foam. Max engraving size: 38mm x 38mm and laser power is 300mW. The accuracy is great you can see it on video above or on the photos in next steps.
Of all the things we do at Raspberry Pi, driving down the cost of computer hardware remains one of the most important. Even in the developed world, a programmable computer is a luxury item for a lot of people, and every extra dollar that we ask someone to spend decreases the chance that they’ll choose …
Micro-servos are great devices perfect for adding motion to your projects. Unlike steppers, they can be controlled directly from your Arduino or other favorite microcontroller. Most servos are limited to 180 degrees of motion. This allows microcontrollers to know the exact position of the servo's shaft. You can find continuous rotation servos, but if you have access to lots of cheap micro-servos of the 180 degree variety, it might be helpful to learn this quick hack to make them continuous. What
The RGB clock utilizes the RGB color composition model used in all color displays. This model uses three ‘basic’ colors, namely red, green and blue, to build any other ‘composite’ color of the spectrum. With RGB clock, however, only ‘pure’ basic colors are combined, thus limiting the resulting number of colors to 8: red, green, blue, yellow, cyan, magenta, white and ‘black’. This way it is always possible to see which of the basic colors are curren
Unix isn't the only operating system that came out of Bell Labs. In an effort to decouple hardware from user interfaces over a network, Bell also developed an OS named Plan 9 (named after the famously...
If you have access to one of those awesome fab-labs which are growing up in cities all over the world, you would like to make something unique with a 3d printer, a CNC router, or a laser cutter.I begun experimenting with a special rubber which can be engraved by laser to make personalized stamps.
Working with conductive fabric is fun and it's ideal for wearables, soft circuitry, e-textiles and other projects that take advantage of it's properties. Learning the basics will help you make design and material choices tailored to your application. This Instructable is jam-packed with insights from using it over the years as well as favorite resources for further development. You will learn techniques, such as how to cut and attach conductive fabric and how to build the following: momentary sw
