Q&D-Poor man’s-Skinner-Sadist-Jeopardy game using arduino

In this instructable you will learn how to make a Q&D-Poor man's-Skinner-Sadist-Jeopardy game . First off, the disclaimer: I'm not responsible of whatever you do. You have to know that with a great power comes...bla-bla-bla. Just be careful and remember that electricity reserves respect. While the energy involved in this project is generally safe, it can be fatal (or at least very harmful) given certain ...

Hacking Hex Bug Spider using arduino

For the Smart Cities exhibition in Leeds in a couple of weeks, we’ve been building a physical representation of an agent based simulation. Hex Bug Spiders are relatively cheap hexapod robots that are controlled via an infra-red transmitter which has an A or B code so that you can control two simultaneously. The way it walks is referred to as the Jamius walking mechanism after its inventor (see: http://www.y ...

PS1 Controller Joysticks with Arduino

Idea: To take one of my old Playstation 1 controllers and extract the dual thumbstick setup so that it can be easily used in a microcontroller project (in my case: with the Arduino) without extra libraries or drivers that you would need if you want to use the entire controller. Please let me know what you think or if you have questions/criticism for me! I'm always looking to learn new things.Required materi ...

Nunchuk-controlled Helicopter using arduino

Welcome to my 3rd Instructable everyone ! Today we're going to build a 'device' to control a mini-sized helicopter with a Wii Nunchuk. The helicopter that we're using is a cheap (26$) 3-channel (yaw, throttle, pitch) helicopter that I bought a 1 month back from Dealextreme.com . I can say that it is a VERY durable heli : I have crashed more thant 100 times and it's still working ! It is not radio-controlled ...

Surfin’ Bird (Arduino Style) using arduino

I just hope every body's heard. The Bird is the Word! This is a simple device to play Surfin Bird really loudly when someone trips off the motion sensor. If you don't already own an Adafruit Wave Shield, I'd highly suggest purchasing one. It's become my favorite shield by far. I love the idea of a dead quiet space with no obvious electrical devices and then "Bamm, right in the kisser" with some annoying mus ...

RoboBrrd using arduino

RoboBrrd is an robot / animatronic character whose purpose morphs to mirror that of the virtual world. It is designed to be used as a tangible real world interface to virtual world learning applications. As a standalone robot, RoboBrrd is an entertaining platform that can be used to learn about robotics, Arduino, circuits, and programming. Here is a teaser video for this RoboBrrd: http://www.youtube.com/wat ...

Stroboscope (zoetrope) using Arduino and a broken Xbox 360 DVD drive using arduino

Stroboscope (AKA zoetrope) is a device that creates an illusion of a moving picture by showing a rapid successions of frames  "stopped" for a fraction of a second due to the persistence-of-vision (POV) effect. It is a very old toy; zoetropes have been amusing crowds since 19th century. It makes it all the more fun to make one out of decidedly 21st century parts! The project was inspired by my own interest i ...
