USA Flag made with diffused LED using Arduino

USA flag constructed using a total of 2,301 diffused red, white and blue LEDs completed with Arduino sketch animations, I hope this instructions helps anyone who wants to try this out. This flag can be displayed during the 4th of July, memorial day or during Christmas. If you find this project interesting and you do something similar by making either the hardware or the Arduino software codes better, please ...

Automate Your Garage Opening Times

1. Background My 1st project with Apduino Online was about to solve a simple problem, close the garage door after sunset, when it has been left open. We have a garage in the basement, which is used not only for car parking, but gardening tools and machines, bicycles, etc are stored there plus there is a workplace. Since there is only one entry into the basement via garage door, normally we leave it open for ...

Uber Home Automation w/ Arduino & Pi

A few years ago, I became a dog owner for the first time. I didn't like leaving Cody in the kennel alone all day. I had a webcam on him, but I couldn't watch it all day long. What if he was in some kind of distress? What if there was a emergency at the house, like a fire? I wanted some way of getting an immediate email notification when he barks, or when something bad happens. So reading lead to tinkering, ...

Intelligent Solar Garden Light using an Arduino- Part 1

I bought a solar powered garden light. The solar panel charges the batteries and when it gets dark the lights (3x LEDs) turn on until it either gets lights again or the batteries run out. It has a small amount of intelligence (turns on when dark off when light) but not enough! Time for some upgrades. :D First, the batteries. The control box houses the batteries, which are three Ni-MH AA cells. They are 600m ...

AC Arduino dimming circuit

THANKS TO CONCERNED VIEWERS, I HAVE LEARNED THAT THIS IS NOT SAFE AND SHOULD NOT BE REPLICATED. SO PLEASE DONT TRY THIS :) THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO COMMENTED, I LEARNED A LOT I am not an engineer, just an experimenter and hacker and prototyper etc, so, thanks to people who know a lot more than I do, I learned that this is not safe to use ------------------------------------ Have you ever wondered how you can ...

Self-Watering Plant using an Arduino

Plants liven up any space by adding a sense of airiness and life. That is - of course - when you don't forget to water them, and they shrivel up and die. I am very bad at remembering to water plants. That is why I built this self-watering plant to do it for me. Using a soil sensor, and an Arduino-controlled water pump, I have created a system that will never forget to do it. Instead of remembering to water ...

Froggy World 5 The Coffee Gripper

In Froggy World, the amusement park for adventurous plastic frogs, it became necessary to to move the frog from a train car back to the catapult.  Because I couldn't know whether the frog would be upright or sideways--and in what orientation--the gripper was a challenge. I read about the "coffee gripper" developed at Cornell and used that technique for transporting the frog. In the video, I cut out the "20 ...

Big Spectrum Analyzer with Arduino

Let’s put together a pixel strip with an HL1606, an Arduino UNO and the Spectrum Shield to build a seven bands “large” Spectrum Analyzer of simple construction. The Strip used uses the HL1606 controller to allow direct management of each of the LEDs. The chip runs two RGB groups and has 4-pin for input/output. The serial communication protocol allows input to output passage whenever the chip receives new da ...
