Web-Based Pool Controller W/ Raspberry Pi, Arduino, Xbee and Digital Thermometer

This simple system allows web based remote control of a swimming pool pump and heater, or any device that be switched with simple relays. It uses a Raspberry Pi as the main controller and web server. It also uses a remote thermometer run by an Arduino at the pool, powered by a battery and a …

Arduino-powered A-10 stick grip remote w/Emergency Party Button

I came across Plama2002’s “Emergency Party Button” build a while back and wanted something similar for my bar. I also had an old USAF B-8 stick grip from an A-10A that I picked up in my previous life. I figured instead of just being a conversation piece, I could put it to good use as …

Radio Telemetry for a Model Rocket using arduino

Flying model rockets is fun, but there is always the question of how high did it go. Using a programmable micro-controller and some sensors, you can monitor the entire phase of flight and measure acceleration and altitude, among other things. With this project, I’ll show you how I did just that, using off-the-shelf open source hardware and …

Wireless Glove-Controlled Electric Mountainboard: An Analysis

Hey guys!  So I finally decided to make a page that has everything you could possibly know about my project.  Even though I had previously answered everyone’s questions, they were usually through a message.  Because of that, I was usually asked the same questions and I figure making this instructable will mitigate that.  So without …
