Accelerometer powered LED dress

Let's be honest for a moment, doesn't everyone want a dress that lights up at your very whim? No? Alright, well I do. It's pretty straightforward, though the programming gets a wee bit tricky. So pick up your pencil, sketch out a design and then we'll talk parts.Here Step 1: Material [box color="#985D00" bg="#FFF8CB" font="verdana" fontsize="14 " radius="20 " border="#985D12" float="right" head="Major Compo ...

Beacon

In this tutorial you will learn how to turn any conductive surface into a capacitive touch sensor. This project illustrates how to use capacitive touch to turn on a motor (fan) and neopixel. In this example, all of the components were custom designed and built specifically for this application. Since this method can be used for many different applications, this instructable will cover the behind the scenes ...

Digital thermometer using arduino

Digital thermometer using arduino and LM35. This article is about a simple three digit digital thermometer using arduino. Range of this thermometer is from 0°C to 99.9°C. There is also a provision for displaying the temperature in °F scale. Three terminal analog temperature sensor LM35 is used as the sensor here. LM35 can measure temperatures between -55°C to +155°C. The supply voltage range is from 4V to 3 ...

Multi-pole industrial relays provide more possibilities

Switching of three-phase motors or a realization of a sophisticated installation is a breeze with industrial relays Finder. As we know, a relay is a very versatile component, able to realize also various “sequential” circuits, when for example by switching one relay we´ll switch on a target device and at the same time we´ll enable (or disable) switching of another relay. In these case, it´s an often demand ...

Making sound (noise) machines using Arduino

As a part of being an artist in residence at Instructables, I took it upon myself to build of couple of noise machines / music boxes. My interest lies in designing objects that would enable people to explore the world of sound synthesis and for me to get a better understanding on how the different interfaces enables different interactions and sound qualities. It has been an intense experience. Trying to bui ...

Arduino powered voltmeter and temp gauge

For a while I have been looking for a way of getting a reading of main and leisure battery voltage, and inside and outside temperature in the van. I spent ages on researching and found some bits here and there that might help, but nothing to do the whoe job, and nothing really satisfactory, until finally I found a link to the Arduino website. Never having heard of it before, I did a bit of reading and it se ...

Play Music using Arduino Esplora

This example shows how to play notes on the buzzer mounted on the Arduino Esplora. Buzzers can generate different audio signals in audible frequency ranges. A note is an audio signal at a specific frequency. If you know the frequency of the notes you want to play, you can start to compose a melody. In this example, you move the slider to generate different notes, and play them by pressing the down push-butt ...

Object Tracking Robot

In this tutorial I am going to post the step-by-step procedure to make a simple Object Tracking Bot. The main aim of this Bot is to follow the objects which are shown to it in 3D space i.e., x, y and z – axis (horizontal, vertical and forward & backward). This bot behaves just like a little doggy. This bot tracks the objects with 2 DOF (Degree Of Freedom). The two motors provide the Horizontal, Forward ...
