Simple LiDAR Using the Laser Rangefinder Uni-T UT390b, Arduino and Turbo Pascal

Some days ago I bought a laser rangefinder (Uni-T UT390b, f.e. http://www.dx.com/de/p/uni-t-ut390b-45m-laser-dist...) to realise a simple LiDAR. The rangefinder has an accuracy of +/- 2mm and is able to measure distances up to 45m. This will be enough for my living room ;-) You'll also need: * Arduino Mega (because of more than one Serial Outputs) * 2 Servos * Servo tilt (f.e. http://physicalcomputing. ...

Use the Force… or Your Brainwaves? (multifuctional Thought Controlled System)

As a kid I always wanted to have a special ability, like moving objects with thoughts or flying. I tried to move objects with “the power of my mind” of course with no success. Well, yes, I was and I am a huge Star Wars fan, but I also like electronics and programming, so why not combine these two things to build an incredible project? You can find all parts, codes and libraries with links at the Hardware an ...

Giant Arduino GEMMA Side Table

They're always serving up something hot at Adafruit. Make this giant Arduino GEMMA side table to use as a platform for various purposes. I needed a small utility table next to my BBQ grill so I made this. Enjoy afternoon tea or cappuccino outdoors in the fresh air with Totoro under the big tree. For all things geeky, this is fun to pair with a giant 555 timer bench. As a bonus, I will show yo ...
