Nursery Rhyme Hat using arduino

Gas Cap using an Arduino board

Since you've gotten into electronics, haven't you wondered if there is a fart sensor out there?  I sure did.  I discovered that if you use a methane sensor, especially the MQ-4, even at very low concentrations, it reads farts.  What if you combined that into a hat with an LED Bar Graph and a XBee?  Exactly.  The Gas Cap was made with that in mind.  For around $100, you can build your own Gas Cap, a human ga ...

I have this problem often e ...
