Arduino Electronic Dice using random numbers

This instructable will show you how to make an electronic dice with minimal experience using 7 LEDs, resistors, jumper wires, and of course the arduino (or arduino clone). I wrote this instructable for anyone to easily follow along and learn more about the arduino. Questions are welcome and will be answered as soon as possible. For less experienced users the code for the arduino is in "longhand" and several ...

LED Hat Display with Pong using an Arduino

A while ago, as my first microcontroller project, I made a Pong game on a 5x7 LED display, but then nothing became of it. Recently I was given a hard hat as part of a uniform (for an engineering competition) and told to customize it, and remembered pong. In this instructable I will show you how to make a scrolling LED display and how to install it in a hard hat. It also plays pong! LED_Diaplay_Code.zip91 KB ...

Temperature Control For Kitchen Appliances using Arduino

In this Instructable, I will step through controlling the temperature of most kitchen appliances. As an example, I will use an old Westbend Poppery popcorn maker (aka. coffee roaster), but these same techniques will be applicable to most hot plates, coffee makers, and waffle irons. This instructable puts you at risk of electrocuting or burning yourself. I will do my best to point out potential pitfalls, but ...

Arduino Binary Alarm Clock

This Instructable will show you how to build an binary alarm clock, with a touch sensor snooze button. This is my first instructable and my first real arduino project, I hope you like it! I bought an arduino a while back and I think it's really nice, but I haven't really done anything useful with it yet, so now I thought it was time to make a bigger project. I decided to do an alarm clock since my old one i ...

Arduino RFID Door Lock

***Updated 8/9/2010*** I wanted to make an easy and secure way to enter my garage. RFID was the best way to unlock my door, even with my hands full I can unlock the door and push it open! I built a simple circuit with a basic ATMega 168 arduino chip and a ID-20 RFID reader to control an electronic door lock. The circuit consists of 3 separate parts, a Reader to read RFID tags, a Controller to accept data fr ...

Wireless Altoids Display using an Arduino

This Instructable will show you how to modify an Altoids tin for a wireless 2x16 character display. Using an Altoids tin was inspired by the need to have a small yet protective enclosure for a pair of Xbee modules recently bought from Sparkfun. I purchased the Xbee Pro modules with external antenna for the extended range the setup provides (useful for future projects). Then I realised I would need to mount ...

Fun Sun-tracking Arduino

The Just-For-Fun Sun-tracker              using the Arduino and two servos. This device, along the lines of the most useless toy, is not so much for function as it is for fun. But as with many things, you can't spell function without fun! This could easily be modified to rotate solar panels into the right position for the best solar power absorption. Ingredients: An Imperial short ton of cardboard! Arduino ...

Reaction Time Tester using an Arduino

A month ago I knew nothing about Arduino and now.....my first project! Looking back, this project combines allmost all of the tutorials that I have read in this short period: blinking LED, push button, piezo and LCD display. A useful project for every beginner! I have made this device for some of my friends who have a hard time admitting how fast alcohol influences their driving abilities. It will test you ...

Kid’s Game to Arduino Enigma Machine

The technology behind Enigma machines and the work done to crack them has influenced cryptography, cryptanalysis, and computer science in general.  If you're unfamiliar with Enigma machines, it's a device that was developed near the end of World War I, then used extensively by the Nazi regime in World War II, to encrypt messages.  The allies (the British in particular) worked tirelessly to break the code.   ...

DIY Arduino or The DIY-Duino

THIS ENTIRE TUTORIAL IS ALSO AVAILABLE ON MY WEBSITE AT http://www.theparsley.com/arduino/diy/ To quote the Arduino website: "Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments." I got one a while ago and life has never been the ...

Steering Wheel Drive R/C Car with Arduino

IP Control Car was launched in 2001. I make the similar function car utilizing commercialized products. The concept of Car No.02 is to utilize commercialized products, and I am an amateur in electrical. So, do not blame me that the system is not sophisticated, i.e. servo & speed controller control system and webcam system are not integrated, or 4 different types of batteries are used for R/C Car(7.2V), ...

Make A Digital Clock From Scratch using arduino

In some point in the life of every electronics hobbyist the need to make a clock is borned, in my case it was about a month after I soldered my first part on a board, but back then I didn't have the right tools, parts and knowledge to do such a thing. But after about 2 years I got all the things I didn't have back then and I was ready to make my first digital clock, and with all the LEDs I had left over fro ...
