So you want to make a custom switch panel for Elite Dangerous, or some other game, huh? It's easier than you might think. I made one, and people like it... My original post on RedditIf you've never used an Arduino or done any coding, this is a pretty good place to start. If you're not good at soldering now, you will be by the time you have finished. And if you've ever wanted to use the term 'matrix' in conversation without referring to an overrated Hollywood movie, then read on. You're in the right place.First of all, there are a couple of fundamentals to understand before we continue. Have a cursory glance at these articles. Go there, understand what a matrix is, why it's useful here, and then come back..http://pcbheaven.com/wikipages/How_Key_Matrices_Wo...http://playground.arduino.cc/Code/KeypadYou're back? Good. It's not rocket surgery, is it? First of all you're going to want to draw a layout. Fee
ForewordHave you ever found whilst creating your Arduino Uno project you only just run out of available I/O?So what are my options you may ask? Using the I2C interface you could add extra I/O chips (PCF8574, MCP23017, MCP3422/3/4 etc.) but this can be quite wasteful and result in a complex solution, Trade up to a bigger Arduino (Mega2560/Due) assuming it fulfills your I/O needs.Well, if like me you have a few spare Arduino Unos hanging around there is a third way. Ever considered connecting together two Arduinos as Master and Slave via I2C?
IntroductionThis short Instructable details how to achieve smooth transitions in response to step changes in PWM value (see video above for comparison. Apologies for poor light levels, but it does get the point across). The code was intended to be used with back lit displays to give a more professional look and feel to changes in brightness levels. Not dissimilar to that of an iPhone, LG or Samsung etc. when the display blanks after a period of user inactivity.
In this Instructable, I'm going to show you how to install Ubuntu MATE on your Raspberry Pi.If you enjoy this Instructable, consider checking out my TechWizTime YouTube Channel. And for a good source of Raspberry Pi products, check out my Raspberry Pi Amazon List.Let's get started!
Happy Sunday from Software Expand! In this week’s edition of Feedback Loop, we talk about the future of Windows Phone, whether it makes sense to build media centers discuss the preferences for metal vs. plastic on smartphones. All that and more past the break the proof of concept can make. Just because you can do
Check out our 360 video from space here: High Altitude balloons are effective tools in conducting experiments and measuring data in the stratosphere. A successful launch can cost less than $200 and give insight and video of how our planet functions.For hundreds of years, humans believed the Earth to be flat. High altitude weather balloons prove the Earth is in fact round.
