Better LED as light sensor

As a result of the questions from lekirst  on this ible of my hand: LED-as-lightsensor-on-the-arduino/ and the cleaner code made by hansc44 at:  Arduino-Use-LED-as-a-light-sensor/ it was time to come with a better Ible. So here it is. (I didn't solve lekirst's problems yet so she probably is open for suggestions) What is the idea? You might know that a LED emits light when you put the right amount of volts ...

Weather Monitor

This Instructable shows you how to build a micro-controller based weather monitoring device. Built on the Arduino Uno board it can easily be extended and modified should you have additional sensors at hand. Main requirements: - Measure temperature (accuracy +/- 0,5 degree Kelvin) - Measure barometric air pressure (+/- 0,1 Pascal) - Display measured values on a LCD on demand by pressing a button Main compone ...

Talking Pumpkin

So my boss came to me one last week and said he wanted to scare the trick-or-treaters who came to his home, and the kids who would come to work during a special Halloween Walk the community does. Thus was born the talking pumpkin. In short, I used an Arduino, an SD card read/writer, and an ultrasonic sensor to trigger a sound byte when the kids walk past our pumpkin… something they would not expect. If you ...

TiltKey- Write by Tilting

The TiltKey is a keyboard input device based on tilting. Based on the angle that it is tilted at, and the direction it is tilted in, you can write every letter of the alphabet, every number, and every symbol found on a standard US keyboard. Operation is very simple; the LCD display shows the letter your going to write, and pressing the "press" button will write it to your computer. Holding the "shift" butto ...

Real-time room temperature on your Website using Arduino

This is how to push high resolution real-time data from Arduino-based temperature sensor to your web page without any server-side coding. Arduino is a great device for collecting, storing and transferring data from various sensors but there are times you need to make your data accessible from any place over the internet, like I did for room temperature in my study. That’s when this solution may come handy. ...

Servo Feedback Hack (free)

This Instructable brought to you by the kind folks a Rachel's Electronics Visit  www.rachelselectronics.com  for cool electronics kits and breadouts! This hobby servo hack will add shaft position feedback by tapping into the servo's own internal potentiometer. The only parts that need are wire and a little bit of solder, making this hack practically free. Common electronics workshop tools are required, so i ...

Ground Tracking LED Longboard Mod

This mod uses a custom designed encoder on one of the wheels to track where the longboard is on the ground and light up the LEDs so that the light pattern remains stationary on the ground as the board moves over it. To make doing this instructable as easy to understand as possible, you will need to know how it works up front.  There are rare earth magnets on one of the wheels.  As the wheel turns, there is ...

3D AIR mouse | Arduino + Processing

3D AIR mouse | Arduino + Processing I'm an Industrial design student, and last year as part of a course called "Technology as RAW materiel" I built this project as my final work. I work most of the time with SolidWorks, a CAD software for design and engenering. Rotating a solid body on the screen is done using the middle mouse button. I was looking for something more intuitive. This is how I ended up doing ...

Arduino theremin like musical instrument

When I got my Arduino protoshield from sparkfun, I wanted to make something cool with it. And since I had seen a few Theremin projects before, and already thought about making some, I finally made one, using the Parallax PING sonar sensor. Here are some informations about how I made it. You can see all the pictures here First, the schematics: Here's the commented code for the Arduino: int pingPin = 7; int b ...
