How to Build an Air Guitar With Arduino, Aka the AIRduino Guitar

The idea here is to build a wearable virtual guitar that is to be controlled with two hands much like playing Air Guitar. It has been created and prototyped during a two weeks project at ChalmersUniversity (Sweden) for a Physical Computing class. The aim is to get the feeling of playing a real guitar. The AIRduino Guitar is made of one glove and one stick. The glove is used to set the tone and the stick to ...

DIY Time Control Machine

This project is about how to make a time machine! This machine looks like a glove, and can "stop" any moving subject. At first, watch a video with some demonstration and experiments, guess how it works, and then read about how to make it =) This effect looks like better in real life (by naked eye, not through a camera), without black lines. Smooth perfect time stop effectc!! IT IS REAL "OH MY GOD" REACTION! ...

DIY Ceiling Mounted Cable Robot Using Arduino Mega

An interesting Arduino project has been created by Nathaniel Nifong and kindly published to Reddit, offering insight on how to create your very own DIY ceiling mounted cable robot powered by an Arduino Mega development board. More commonly associated with sporting events cable robots offer an easy way to view the action on large pitches and are normally mounted with cameras and microphones. Although Nathani ...

NTP Clock

In this project, we will learn the basics of User Datagram Protocol (UDP). We will request and receive time from the NTP server using the above communication protocol. The 4Duino display is utilised to print the received time in both, digital and analogue clock format. Transfer of Data over Internet The 2 most common ways to transfer chunks of data (also known as packets) over the internet are Transmission ...

4Duino Servo Control

In this project, we will control the angular position of the DC Servo Motor via an I/O port (with PWM output capability) and touch knob. The 4Duino resistive touch display is used as a means for a graphical interface to control the angular positon of the Servo. Servo motor is a very useful device for hobbyists and robot enthusiasts as it allows your project to have moving parts. Servo motors are unique, as ...

Electronic Piano

In this project, we will learn how to use an Active Buzzer and a 4Duino to create an Electronic Piano. An active buzzer is an electric piezo device which is commonly used to produce sound. When subjected to an alternating electric field, a piezo ceramic material disc inside the buzzer is caused to stretch or compress, in accordance with the frequency of the signal thereby producing sound. Buzzers are widely ...

LED Matrix Controller

In this project, we will use the digital pins and screen of the 4Duino to create a 5×7 LED matrix controller with a user graphical interface. An LED matrix is essentially many LEDs packaged in a dot grid format in order to produce pictures or large text. They’re commonly used for signage purposes in the public space. The LED matrix utilised in this project is made by multiplexing 35 LEDs together such that ...

4Duino LED Brightness Control

In this project, we will learn how to control the brightness of LED via an I/O port (with PWM output capability) and a touch display slider. The 4Duino resistive touch display is used as a means for a graphical interface to control the intensity of the LED. Since the 4Duino itself has an LED on pin D13 with PWM output capability, you may use the LED to conduct this project for convenience. A LED (light emit ...

LED Control Using Touch Button

In this project, we will learn how to turn an LED ON or OFF via the 4Duino I/O port (D13) and a button widget from 4D Workshops. The 4Duino’s resistive touch display is used as a means for a graphical interface to control state of the LED. For convenience, we will use the LED on pin D13 of the 4Duino to conduct this project. An LED (light emitting diode) works on the basic principle that when potential diff ...

LDR Sensor

In this project we will monitor the room temperature using a LDR_NSL19_M51 light dependant resistor (LDR) and 4Duino. The resistance of the LDR varies significantly with ambient light hence it can detect surrounding light intensity changes in real time. In this project 4Duino’s resistive touch display is used as a means for displaying the detected light intensity using LED digits and an angular meter. HOW I ...

4Duino Ultrasonic Sensor

In this project we will measure the distance of the nearby object using TS601-01 Ultrasonic sensor and 4Duino. An ultrasonic sensor has a transmitter (sends ultrasonic signals) and a receiver (receives the ultrasonic signal after it bounced off nearby object). The sensor estimates the distance of the object by transmitting a signal and determining how long the signal took to come back.  Ultrasonic Sensor ha ...
