Improved Simple Wing Shield using arduino

Not too long ago, I made my own version of the popular Wing Shield out of some spare parts and scraps of perf board I had laying around. Instead of the screw terminals that the regular wing shield uses, I used some female headers that I soldered to some Arduino stackable header pins. This time I did something a little different and it makes the new ones much better. I figured out that I can bend the pins on ...

Light Clapper using arduino

This is a project that I quickly made one night because I wanted to 'clap' to turn off and on the light in my room! I have a small room for myself, so I basically have no other noise around. So, I was able to use an amplifier, which finds the value of the sound level in its surroundings. I hooked this amplifier, MAX4466 from Adafruit, and a servo that I had from a while ago. This project took some time to e ...

Cheap and effective Sous Vide cooker (Arduino powered)

Sous-vide cooking is a great new way of cooking food. I will not explain why and how it works here... for great recipes and explanations, you can check out those guys : http://modernistcuisine.com/2013/01/why-cook-sous-... Unfortunately, a good (and I mean precise to the half °C) sous-vide machine is very very expensive (500, 1000$ or more). If you wonder why you need such precision, I suggest you check thi ...

Forget Me Not- Remote Flower Watering

Hi everyone, Lucy Matchett, Nicole Yi Messier, and Joselyn McDonald (Snax_and_Macs) made a remote flower-watering device so you can water your loved ones' plants when you water your own. We used Arduinos, a photoresistor, a servo, Arduino and Processing sketches, Spacebrew, and a little elbow grease to put it all together. We've posted the instructions, and the link to our gitHub in order to get the code. W ...

Mug Music: Turn Water Into an Instrument with Arduino and ChucK

What if you could turn any conductive surface into an instrument? Like, say...a mug of water? Best of all, it's cheap; you'll only need $1 worth of extra electrical components (not including the Arduino).   For this project, my friend Harvest and I combined Disney's Touché touch-sensing system with Arduino, and then used ChucK to generate music based on the input. Rain falls gently in the background, a ...
