Are you addicted to social sites? Then you may want to steer clear of the ‘x.pose’ corset (via Behance) Smart clothing is fast becoming the new trend in the fashion world. There are shoes that are able to charge mobile devices as you walk, LED dresses that changes colors as body temperatures rise and intelligent T-shirts that can remotely monitor the wearer’s vitals. Now we have a piece of clothing that becomes transparent, the more time you spend online, which may or may no ...
Link back to main menu Fast Track to Arduino Programming   link to lesson 4a incase you missed it : Fast Track to Arduino Programming - Lesson 4a, Ethernet input and response test console   In lesson 4a we reviewed the HTML based console that was to be used throughout lesson 4, this was so you are prepared to follow through the lesson without worrying about how other none Arduino parts work, now I will present the main video that will walk you through the sketch, identifying the cha ...
Link back to main menu Fast Track to Arduino Programming   Sorry this one was so long in coming, it has taken a while to work through getting the web page up and running without being complicated and also to figure the best pins to use while not compromising the next few lessons as I want to build upon this lesson in future tutorials, the video should be up in the next couple of days (by 23rd June 2014)   So in preparation for the video I am going to preview this one with what the ou ...
Congrats to Tomas Polisensky who was chosen to win the Arduino Starter Kit ! Kickstart your Project and start making with an Arduino Starter Kit! Enter the contest and win! Share your Arduino project idea that you will create in 10 words or fewer with your original created pictures/diagrams/etc between June 18th and June 20th 2014! Don't be afraid to be specific! (It's better if you are). What's in the kit ? Arduino Uno R3 and project book Temperature / Tilt Sensors LC ...
Alina Balean and Rucha Patwardhan’s Smart Hoodie- The wearable text messenger. The ubiquitous hoodie, typically worn by today’s youth, athletes and thug engineers everywhere. We usually don’t associate them with technology, however you will often find that those who ‘sport’ the garment often keep their cellphone in the front pocket. Since pocket space is very limited and therefore valuable, it only makes sense that two New York University graduate students would i ...
back to intro and main menu Fast Track to Arduino Programming   In part 1 of this lesson, you where presented with a fully working Arduino sketch that can read from analog inputs, output PWM and output to the digital lines, please review the code there before going through this as I will be assuming ou have done so you can find it here Fast Track to Arduino Programming - Lesson 3 pt 1, Improved Parsing and memory usage (Fully working programs)   this sketch compiled to 8434 bytes an ...
In a glorious 8 colours. I couldn't believe this when I saw the video footage, but there's even a shot of the circuitry after it and the guy is giving away how he did it along with the code.   It isn't even overclocked!     Article Source: 640×480 VGA On An Arduino ...
Back to the main intro to the lessons Fast Track to Arduino Programming   Below is the intro code for Lesson 3, in order to not make the blog entry too long, part two of lesson three can be found here: Fast Track to Arduino Programming - Lesson 3 pt 2, Improved Parsing and memory usage (Optimized)   The third part in this series is to improve the way we parse the input from the console and make use of SRAM. this initial program is the starting program for this lesson and is presente ...
Now we have seen how to read the serial port we will now expand the capability to include examining the content of the data and comparing to pre-defined strings in order to take different actions based on what was sent In this tutorial we only send back message to the console, not performing actual IO to any of the built in hardware (That will be in the next lesson). this lesson focuses on simply building up a program capable of making decisions as commanded from the console. The syntax used in ...
In this the first main lesson we look at how to simply read from the serial port and return what is read back out the port to the console, creating a buffer for the input data and correctly handling the input from the console   In the following code the CheckSerial() function has been corrected after the video was recorded. It will now be less dependent on the settings of your terminal program like Putty or the Serial Monitor of the IDE. this is due to the program now ignoring the '0D ...
In this first intro lesson I describe the basic sketch and concept of limited memory and that even an empty sketch uses up valuable system resources   /* Title: Lesson 0. how big is an empty Sketch anyway Description:  Reading a line of text from the Serial Port and sending to a command process function. Date created: 27 May 2014 Created By: Peter Oakes Additional Comments: Feel free to use and abuse as you wish, I imply NO Warranty NOTE: defines take no program space untill use ...
This is my first blog post on Element14 and hopefully the first one of a long list ACAL BFi [1] kindly offered me a free sample of an illuminated capacitive switch for evaluation. The switch is made by Stadium IGT [2] who are coincidentally only a short drive away from where I live. This is a great opportunity for me to share my findings with the wider community. So What Is It? It is an ‘off-the-shelf’ innovative module that combines a touch switch (no moving part) with a m ...
Doorbells are the 20th century version of today's perpetually-interrupting cell phone. There you are, cooking a delicious dinner or reading a nice book when the doorbell rudely goes off in your ear. Sure, you're glad to see whoever is at the door, but interruptions that chime can be so obnoxious. Needless to say, I do not have a doorbell.   The problem with the knocking system is that I usually can't hear when someone knocks from my lab. I depend on Penny the Dog to alert me when someone i ...
This article covers hardware that is in development.The hardware covered in this article is liable to change in features and specification.It does not necessarily reflect the quality or build of the final product.     I hadn't heard of the Arduino Tre until a few months ago, I suspected that it might be ARM processor based, but I had no idea as to what it would look like or how it would function (obviously I had missed some clear marketing). I had heard some comment of it coming to ma ...
