Arduino Assisted RC Truck/Car

Recently I dusted off my 7 year old Stampede 2wd, designed in 1996. I got it for my 8th birthday. The truck was great, but it had a few caveats. For example, if the truck ran out of range, battery was low, or the transmitter batteries died on you, the truck would keep the throttle on the last position. Thanks to this accidental cruise (out of) control (See what I did there? 0_o), I accidentally drove m ...

KeySampler

This instrument was build by Lieven Menschaert and Danny Leen using  an Arduino Uno and some  hardware components ( rotary encoder, potentiometer and  simple iron bolts). The software running the actual audio and video is a Pure Data / GEM patch. Additionaly Echonest API was used to do the sample cutup. You can send any mp4 file to it and it returns a folder containing the sliced up .mp4 and ...

Physicists Of University of Rochester Have Created Polariton – A Particle With Negative Mass

A group of researchers led by Nick Vamivakas from the University of Rochester has successfully produced particles which have negative mass in an atomically thin semiconductor material. According to the researchers, they have created a device that can generate LASER light using a significantly small amount of energy. All made possible with the help of this so-called negative mass particles. Quantum physicist ...

Tidal Clock

This is a tutorial for making the Tidal Clock. The clock shows the ebb and flow between high and low tide by a rising and falling water level. It consists of an airtight acrylic container that has a front visible chamber and a back hidden chamber. A volume rotates through the back chamber, displacing the water in the front and causing the water level to rise and fall. The rotation is controlled by an Arduin ...

Pocket Laser Engraver.

I have been trying to get my hands on a laser cutter for some time but they always seem out of reach. All the great things that can be done with a real laser cutter tickle the imagination. I feel it's time to share my latest project - a low cost laser engraver,. The workspace is a bit small but none the less it works and comes so cheap that most will be able to replicate the result. I did take a few shortcu ...

Arduino Uno Xylophone

This xylophone uses the Arduino Uno and a multiplexer to identify when one of eight keys are struck, and play that sound via midi sound on a computer. An optional part of the instructions also allows each key to light up with two LED lights at the same time the xylophone is struck. These steps outline what I have done. Step 1: Necessary Parts Arduino Uno9 V battery with Arduino adaptorArduino to USB connect ...

3D Printed Objects that can connect to Wi-Fi without any Electronics

The world has seen an exponential growth of the Internet of things, where things are becoming connected. Every physical object is giving the chance to be connected to the internet and emit some data about itself with just the addition of some chips, and some form of wireless interface. Your Electric kettle can basically tell you when it’s ready or even prepare itself down for you. Researchers have estimated ...
