DIY Low Cost Arduino Mobile Development Platform

I have wanted to build my own robot for awhile now. But after many tried and failed attempts, I was losing hope that may ever happen. I discovered that there wasn't a small, robust, super easy to add-on to, robot that was within my budget to get. After hours of research and many robot kits later, i decided to build one from scratch. This includes building the base and electronics myself. I was always a fan ...

APR9600 Voice Recording and Playback System with JRC286D Chip ICStation Mega 2560 Compatible Arduino

ICStation team introduce you this APR9600 voice recording and playback system used in elevator based on the ICStation Mega2560 compatible with Arduino. It uses DC5V voltage to work. When you press the different keys, the loudspeaker will sound that which floor you arrive. This design uses a APR9600 voice chip as the core of the circuit and realizes the function of auto recording and playback. It uses power ...

Making the TFF: a dress that gets excited when tweeted

The idea of this dress comes from a series of tweets with online friends @shineslike and @arduinogirl.  @shineslike and I had taken a half day Arduino workshop given by @arduinogirl at the MCN 2011 conference. I was immediately inspired creatively by the sensory and interactive opportunities. Over the next few months I struggled with the electronics learning curve, but my ever supportive online friends real ...

Magical Colour Copying Chameleon Lamp using Arduino

In this Instructable, I will show you how to make an Arduino powered lamp that detects the colour under it and then attempts to emulate that colour. All using easy to find parts (most can be found in the Dollar store with the exception of the Arduino of course). It turns out that a colour detection module can be built for next to nothing, and the results are astoundingly good for the investment. The biggest ...

Ultrasonic Dimmer

I have been working on this project for a while and whilst it is still under development I decided to write a short guide after several requests to do so. The dimmer uses an interrupt driven XL-Maxsonar EZ1 ultrasound range finder to measure the distance between the sensor and your hand. By moving your hand up and down over the sensor you can increase or decrease the amount of light emitted by the connected ...

Rotary Emotiphone using Arduino

Introduction The Rotary Emotiphone is a vintage rotary phone that tweets mood emoticons. It has a predefined list of 10 emoticons, each assigned to a digit, so that when you are happy / sad / drunk / etc., you pick up the handset and dial a mood. Could've gone for more complex messages using 2-digit code convention, but eventually decided to keep it simple. The idea was conceived while I was preparing portf ...

High Speed Photo Arduino : HighSpeeduino

Today is High Speed Photography day ! The concept is to take a 'long' exposure photograph, 4 seconds say, in a (very) dark room (a bathroom in our case). You end up with a completely black picture, right ? If you burst a flash (about a millisecond for a standard flash) then you get a picture made of 4 seconds of 'dark' and one millisecond of 'light'. Are you still with me ? The trick is to burst the flash a ...

Current Source For LED Microscope Illuminator Provides Full-Spectrum Light

When the built-in incandescent light source of my venerable Olympus microscope failed after many years of use, I decided to design a reliable modern replacement. A 1-W white LED (SEOUL X42182, 350 mA max, Vf = 3.25 V) was the obvious choice to provide high brightness and full-spectrum light without the heat of incandescent or xenon arc lamps. The microscope lamp brightness needs to be adjustable, however, t ...

Electrocardiograph & Heart Rate Monitor

This instructable shows you how to make an electrocardiograph and a heart rate monitor. It is intended to be a fun science project only. Of course, it should not serve as a medical purpose. PLEASE NOTE : To avoid any risk of electric shock, only use battery alimentation. Electrodes are theorically isolated from the circuit by the instrumentation amplifier, but play safe. I'm not responsible for any accident ...

Earfingers: Hear with your hands using Arduino

First and foremost, I must acknowledge that I am standing on the shoulders of giants, and that every giant is standing on the shoulders of giants (such as all contributors to instructables). If it weren't for the unknowably many people who had the mindfulness to freely share information, this would have been utterly impossible; I reckon the same if even a handful of these people chose otherwise. So, if you ...
