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 ...

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. ...

Bonus Tutorial: Arduino to vvvv, a Paper Touch Interface

The hardware is easy and the code isn't hard, so let's start!! We are going to use an Arduino, draw (!!) our own interface on a piece of paper, and than we are going to use it to control a simple slide show inside vvvv. In this, rather long tutorial, I will be showing you how to receive Arduino messages inside vvvv, and use those to make a basic picture rotator. We will create a capacitive sensor for Arduin ...
