Universal Remote Control

The transmitter in the remote control handset sends out a stream of pulses of infrared light when the user presses a button on the handset. A transmitter is often a light emitting diode (LED) which is built into the pointing end of the remote control handset. The infrared light pulses form a pattern unique to that button. The receiver in the device recognizes the pattern and causes the device to respond acc ...

Arduino / Raspberry Pi Internet Radio

This is a project for Arduino and Raspberry Pi to make an Internet Radio, aimed at intermediate skill level. Some familiarity with Linux usage will be beneficial (or access to someone who can help out if required). Raspberry Pi runs mpd music player daemon to receive and decode the internet radio stream. ALSA running on the Raspberry Pi provides the sound through either the Jack Socket or the HDMI output. A ...

Just Veggin with an Arduino Beetbox

Bring Touch Control to the Arduino. Use interesting touch sensors like Carrots or Beets to make a "Beetbox". In this project you will learn: * How to use the Cap Sense library to make Arduino responsive to touch * How adding a Wave Shield (and some root vegetables), you can make a "Beetbox" The Principles of Capacitive Touch Sensing For the Beetbox we use three sense channels. To start we'll implement one t ...

Useless Box

Story Fascinated by this humorous anthropomorphic idea on instructables that left me philosophizing deeply about the essence of art, I decided to make this a project after witnessing many ruthless battles between human and robot on youtube.   How does it work? The Arduino "listens" to the state of the switch and actuates the servo when the switch is activated. In the OFF state, the Arduino sends the se ...

Provocation: Urban Encounters

Description Urban Encounters is our imagination of the future of interactive surfaces within our 5x5x5 site. The crosswalk "island" we chose at the corner of Shattuck and Center in downtown Berkeley promotes an interesting combination of isolation, stuck-ness and loneliness. To bring out these themes into the physical world, we decided to modify existing objects to support traditionally web-only interaction ...

Kroebe Lights

Brainstorming Process After selecting Kroeber Fountain as our location of interest, we began to notice that it was a place at which people would congregate without interacting with one another. The fountain’s shape - most notably, its tiered steps - affords it the ability to serve as a seat where multiple people can sit in close proximity to one another and still manage to treat each other like strangers. W ...

Raspberry Pi teams up with an Arduino

The principal behind ArduinoPi First a little clarification, the ArduinoPi isn’t really a library or a command set or an out of the box controller, its more a proof of concept using already know programming languages. If you want to use it be ready for some PHP, CSS, HTML, C++ and jQuery! The principal is as follows: The Arduino is connected as a slave device, meaning it waits for a command, execute it and ...

Drawing with a Laser – Hack-a-Day Logo

Reading Hack a Day I found an interesting challenge: drawing their logo somewhere. And the fact that was even more interesting: “preference will be given to the largest and smallest submissions“. I started figuring out how to do something like that with the things I had around, and settled for using a laser and two servos. Even though I missed the deadline for submissions, it became a very interesting proje ...

LPG Leakage Detector using Arduino

While LPG is an essential need of every household, its leakage could lead to a disaster. To alert on LPG leakage and prevent any mishappening there are various products to detect the leakage. Here we have developed an Arduino based LPG gas detector alarm. If gas leakage occurs, this system detects it and makes an alert by buzing the buzzer attached with the circuit. This system is easy to build and anyone w ...
