3-dimensional Star Cluster using an Arduino

This instructable will guide you through the process of making your very own star-cluster from LEDs and acrylic. I made this piece for my electronics final project at college and had access to a machine shop. This instructable assumes that you have access to similar tools. This project was very much inspired by http://www.instructables.com/id/working-progress-n-how-to-make-a-multilayered-a/#step8. Step 1: T ...

High Heel Massage using an Arduino

My project is to make a heel (shoe) that senses when your foot is tired and then eases the pain. I will have a force sensor measure how much pressure is on your foot for 3 minutes. If the pressure is at a certain measure for 3 minutes, then a vibrator will go off and massage your foot for two sets of vibration massages. I am creating this because many women suffer the price of beauty and looking good. Women ...

Paper Man: a machine created by Arduino and NFC

Paper Man is a machine comprised of Arduino, NFC Shield, thermal printer and a papercraft shell—Iron Man. Thanks to the NFC Shield, you can directly sent messages from your mobile to the paper man, and the paper man will spit it out by printing with the thermal printer. The following video shows you the details of how Paper Man works. Step 1: Preparation [box color="#985D00" bg="#FFF8CB" font="verdana" font ...

Home Automation (or Robot Butler called Geoffrey) – iPhone controlled, arduino based

Being able to control everything from your pocket has long been a dream shared by many. Previously we've had universal remotes that can both control our TVs and radios, then we had wireless wall sockets. Both great things, but how likely is it that you're going to be carrying around those remotes with you everywhere you go? These days almost everyone has a smartphone in their pocket, so why not use that? So ...

Pressure Activated Light-Up Umbrella using an Arduino

Once upon a time, 2 girls greatly enjoyed walking in the rain with umbrellas. They decided the enjoyment of this experience could be maximized by building their own pressure-activated web of LEDs to install under their umbrella. Thus, with the help of an Arduino, some 4051 multiplexers, a lot of wire and a lot of solder, they set off on their path to success. Step 1: Materials List Just based on size, we de ...

L.O.G. sous vide

So have you heard of sous vide? Well, this Lazy Old Geek (LOG) hasn’t or hadn’t. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sous-vide It’s French. So it’s kind of like boil-in-a-bag only you don’t boil it. The equipment can be rather expensive. http://www.sousvidesupreme.com/Shop_Online/SousVide_Supreme_Demi/Department.aspx?DeptID=3&&AdID=245&gclid=CN7PyM6uw7cCFWNp7AodomkA6g I thought that was rather expensiv ...

Energy-Saving Light using an Arduino

In the spirit of Earth Day, I have created a revolutionary new energy-saving lighting solution that is only ever on when your eyes are open. This is remarkably more efficient than normal lighting that remains on, even when your eyes are shut. Using my device, you get light when you need it, and darkness when you don't. This is not only beneficial to you and your energy bill, but great for mother Earth. This ...

The Dryer Messenger using Arduino

The dryer in our house is in an out-of-the-way corner where it’s hard to hear the buzzer. When we miss it, the clothes sit in the dryer getting wrinkly, so we start the dryer again, don’t hear the buzzer again … it’s an endless cycle. After what seemed like the thousandth time, my wife quipped, “I wish the dryer could just tell us when it’s done.” I had just started playing with Arduino, so I thought a Drye ...
