Hercules: The Motion Controlled Android Robot using Arduino

When I was in the 8th grade, I was intrigued while playing the motion games on Nokia 5800. I was thrilled, how I could control the racing car by only tilting the phone. I used to dream of making this same car in the real world. Now, in 11th  grade ( Age 17) having got an Arduino Uno and learnt how to program it, I was able to build my "Hercules" robot. Hercules is the name given to my motion controlled robo ...

IR Remote Agent using Arduino

Remote control is almost a standard accessory for most home applications, like TV, Hi-Fi, air conditioner and so on. Though remote control brings us leisure, when you really need it but have completely no clue where it is, or which one it is, you have every right to be pissed off. To solve the remote  clutter, IKEA may tell you to buy a remote storage bag, but believing in a geek spirit as us, we would tell ...

Bluetooth Controlled Message Droid using Arduino

This is an instructable for a bluetooth controlled Message Droid. I call it R2Blue2. It moves around and displays messages that you type using your phone or computer. Atleast it was supposed to. Due to many problems such as underpowered batteries and bad cable management I wasn't able to extract the performance necessary. I will explain the problems that plagued this build later. The messages are sent over ...

Building the YaNis EOS Controller using Arduino

The YaNis EOS controller is a device that allows you to wirelessly control your Canon DSLR from your Android phone. What's really exciting here is that the Android interface allows you to change most of the camera's settings (like Shutter Speed, Aperture Size, ISO, White Balance, Focus Position and others) from more than 20 meters away! The controller is based on the Arduino platform and some commonly avail ...

Arduino Combi-button Lock optional Android support

Recently, I decided I would like to attempt to make a passcode lock with my newly acquired Arduino Uno, but all the tutorials I could find made use of a modified keypad, something that not every Tom, Dick and Harry has lying about. I therefore decided to set out and make a version using only things every Arduino user should have in their component box - buttons. Ladies and Gentlemen, I bring to you - the Ar ...

Android talks to Arduino

This project slightly modifies the Google Android sample app called "Bluetooth Chat" so you can type a message in the Android app and that same message will appear on an LCD attached to an Arduino Uno. Functionality:  Android  talks to Arduino 1. Run the Android "Bluetooth Chat" sample app (after we modify the app in this instructable).  Type a message in the app's text box and press the "send" button.  The ...
