Our favorite development board is now in its rebellious years, and having it’s Quinceañera ─ 15 years old! For the special day, I wanted to put together an intermediate project featuring the staple of birthdays, candles. I wanted digital candles that you could also blow out like their anal ...

Tired of looking over your shoulder in your cube? This project solves that problem in a quiet, simple way – with a motion sensor and some lights.    The project by sections: A Passive Infrared Sensor (PIR Sensor) is some old technology. It dates back to Herbert Berman in 1970! ...
  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 ...

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 ...

A new Arduino Gameboy called Arduboy. Nostalgia is fun, and nostalgic games are even more fun. Arduboy is a new and cheap ‘gameboy’ that allows you to play games old-school. (via Arduboy) I can't believe I missed out on this cute little gameboy-ish system powered by Arduino, with a heaping dose of nostalgia along with it. The creator, Kevin Bates, is calling it an Arduboy and he quit his full time job over a year ago to develop this creation. He even moved to China to get the pro ...
