An Intel Galileo Walkthrough using arduino

Despite the Arduino YUN was presented just recently, already a new board that is compatible with GNU/Linux has been released. This one is based on x86 technology and made by Intel, the leader of this technology. Evolution of embedded technologies could be considered a fact if a giant like Intel decided to participate with his “interpretation” of the phenomenon. Embedded technology combines the power and fle ...

How to Do Arduino-Controlled Intelligent Time-Lapse Photography

Project: Light-Sensitive and Adjustable Dynamic Time-Lapse Photography By Holden Leslie-Bole Approximate cost: $70 without the camera I've been doing some time-lapse photography with my GoPro HERO3 for a while now, and I've gotten some great footage.  There have been times, however, when I've wanted to be able to use my DSLR to have more control over the shots that I'm getting.  I had the idea to use an inf ...

Arduino based Split-Flap game

We have a great Dutch Holiday tradition called sinterklaas (5th of december, this is what the US Santa is based on). For the older "non-believers" we make surprises. The purpose is to buy a small present but make a really cool "surprise" around it. Here my arduino based Split-flap game I made as surprise. I made this for my 15-year old niece that was asking for very expensive presents only, so I thought I w ...

Arduino Button Tutorial

What's simpler and dumber than a button, you ask... I say: behind a button, unexpected things can hide. And within a program that does various things, handling a button can be tricky. The nice thing is that interesting functions can be built with a simple dumb button. This tutorial will address these aspects: wiring and configuring pins, using pull-up/pull-down resistor, deglitching, detecting states versus ...

RGB Liquid Crystal Display using Arduino Tutorial

This is something that almost every maker that is interested in easy electronics should know how to do. It is great for decorating or just experimenting for starters. I am doing this tutorial because I had bought an RGB display from the Maker Shed and it was hard to track down the instructions. First I will teach you how to connect it to the Arduino and then I will show you the code required. This isn’t my ...

Arduino Cellular Shield Tutorial

The Arduino Cellular Shield allows you to make cellular telephone calls, and send text messages. The brains of this shield is the SM5100B which is a robust cellular module capable of performing many of the tasks of most standard cell phones. This shield requires use of a SIM card to connect to a cellular network. The tutorial that follows is a bare bones tutorial for initializing the shield, and both sendin ...

Introduction to Processing and Arduino

Part 1: This series of videos is a recording of my 7 hour workshop teaching an introduction to Processing and Arduino. Since this is a class recording, there may be omissions, mistakes and other inconsistencies. I also run my workshops based upon the speed of the students and questions I receive. This workshop assumes you have a basic Arduino starter kit. This class will cover basic programming and electron ...

Bluetooth SNES Controller for Android Tutorial using Arduino

This is in response to my much older video from my senior design project. Since then I have received several messages asking for some sort of tutorial on building a controller, and this is it. The production value here is fairly amateur, it is literally my first exposure to using iMovie for anything, and I'm sure it shows. ...
