  Just in time for Halloween and Fall, a pumpkin… But not just an ordinary pumpkin. This one will stand out of all the other pumpkins sitting on people's porches…. Just sitting there. This pumpkin is about to fly away. Yes, a UFO pumpkin with lights. Ideal for the front porch of a house you want to catch people's eye as they pass by. If Christmas lights and decorations weren’t enough, we are bringing the decorative house lights earlier into the season. Now you can annoy ...

  One of the most important things when playing guitar is making sure that the instrument is in tune. Even the best guitar player will not sound any good with an out-of-tune guitar. Tuning guitars by hand using a standard tuner has always been common, but an automatic tuner makes things much easier, and more fun! This Arduino-based project will tune your guitar for you. Here is a video showing the project in action: https://www.mathworks.com/videos/automatic-guitar-tuner-using-simulink-and- ...

Three drop-modules report to the monitor in the foreground.     Motion detectors are cool but running wires out to them is a drag. We wanted to secure an area quickly and conveniently and without sirens or bells letting intruders know that we know that they are trespassing ...
  It’s no secret that lighting effects have been one of my major focuses in my career as a maker, and I wanted to share a pretty cool concept that I came up with a few years back. In this tutorial I will walk you through the process of creating a pair of accent lights that that utilizes the popular WS2812B LED modules also known as Neopixels, and an open source library called fastLED. Within this tutorial you will learn how to increment a variable with the push of a button, and how t ...
Introduction Updates Weight vs length and vice-versa Finding and testing the load sensor (scale sensor) The filament roll scale design Assembling the parts Some structure improvements Circuit and wiring 1. Power the system and initialise it (calculating the empty tare without the filament) 2. Place the filament roll and wait the weight stabilises 3. Start reading the usage (material load) The project in action The software Introduction This pro ...
Project build Index: Arduino Project : Three-Finger Ring - Part 1 Getting started and 3D Printing Arduino Project : Three-Finger Ring - Part 2 Code & the Circuit Arduino Project : Three-Finger Ring - Part 3 Assemble the Ring!   ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------   Step 6: Assemble the ring and install the components. At this point, disassemble the breadboarded circuit and begin installing it into the ring. Glue and a hobby knife are e ...
Project build Index: Arduino Project : Three-Finger Ring - Part 1 Getting started and 3D Printing Arduino Project : Three-Finger Ring - Part 2 Code & the Circuit Arduino Project : Three-Finger Ring - Part 3 Assemble the Ring!   ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------   You have everything ready from Part 1 right? Good. Now it's time to program and get images on that screen.   Step 4: Breadboard the circuit.   Before installing a ...

It's now completely finished!   This writeup will go over all the steps taken to build the s ...
The Arduino platform has become quite popular with people just starting out with electronics. It is an open-source hardware design, based on microcontroller board designs and provide sets of digital and analog I/O pins that can be interfaced to various expansion boards ("shields") and other circuits. The boards feature serial communications interfaces, including USB on some models, for loading programs from personal computers. Completing an Arduino project gives you a sense of satisfaction like ...
We all may have used the calculators, and if you are being involved in the scientific field then the scientific one too. What about building your own scientific calculator and showing it to your friends. You can do it by evive, it is an arduino powered embedded product. For more information you can watch this video. We have built a Scientific calculator having lots of functions like basic algebraic functions (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division), trigonometric functions, logarithm ...
I've been making a video of the build-process of one of my projects.   Its a one-hand transmitter in the form of a glove that lets you control a quadcopter. Anyway, just wanted to share the project, I hope you enjoy! Video link below; YouTube link:     Best regards Josef ...
At last a chance to catch up with my Energy Monitor Arduino Project.   Here is the circuit I will build to work with my Arduino Uno via the SPI interface:   It is a design that was informed by discussions from this question:   How to Use Current and Voltage Sensors on Domestic supplies - Worldwide?   In the USA they use a split transformer to feed power to houses so that appliance will run on 110V or 220V. Using 220V keeps the current down for cookers and heaters.   ...
I just finished a cool project with my new Cactus Micro rev2 (Arduino w/ ESP8266 WiFi built-in) and an OLED screen. My Internet of LEGO project is basically a collection of IoT, computer & electronics ideas brought to life, for my own personal amusement.   Check it out! http://www.internetoflego.com/train-schedule-display-2/ ...
