Home Automation Using Arduino & Autohotkey

Its been awhile since i last posted something here. Was kinda busy with my university exams & all! Idea for this project was in my mind for very long & i don’t think anyone would’ve done this project with Autohotkey! Anyway, this is a necessity for me, honestly i’m a super lazy person   & i don’t like getting up to switch on fan/light even though the switches are just 3 footsteps away!   From th ...

Real-time room temperature on your Website using Arduino

This is how to push high resolution real-time data from Arduino-based temperature sensor to your web page without any server-side coding. Arduino is a great device for collecting, storing and transferring data from various sensors but there are times you need to make your data accessible from any place over the internet, like I did for room temperature in my study. That’s when this solution may come handy. ...

Making sound (noise) machines using Arduino

As a part of being an artist in residence at Instructables, I took it upon myself to build of couple of noise machines / music boxes. My interest lies in designing objects that would enable people to explore the world of sound synthesis and for me to get a better understanding on how the different interfaces enables different interactions and sound qualities. It has been an intense experience. Trying to bui ...

Arduino multi-mode lamp with soft touch switch

In this Arduino-based project, we will build a lamp with multiple light displays: color sequencer, dimming light, color chaser, firelight - all selected by a touch bar on the circuit board. All the functions are done in software, including the touch sensor, which is a unique feature. Step 1: What is needed? We will be going the minimalist way for this project, filling the board with just a microchip, the LE ...

Arduino (optic fibre)

I just brought a new lamp and after a week, I'm tired of looking at it randomly change colours between red, blue, green. What can you expect from a cheap lamp brought at 5$ . Looking at the lamp I realized that I could make a gmail lamp, that shines green every time I got a unread mail. But after some time I changed my idea, and started working on a simple hack. The hack is relatively simple, we can use an ...

Animatronic Stargate helmet using Arduino

I love the movie Stargate and when I first saw it I immediately knew I wanted to make one of the super cool Horus guard helmets. I had sketched multiple designs over the years and figured out several different methods for building it but rejected them all for one reason or another- usually due to cost or complexity of construction. Since I wanted this to be a costume helmet my requirements were that it be l ...

Rain Alarm Project

Water is basic need in every one’s life. Saving and proper usage of water is very important. Here is an easy project which will give the alarm when there is rain, so that we can make some actions and save the rain water. As a result, we can increase the water levels of underground water by using underwater recharge technique. Rain water detector will detect the rain and make an alert; rain water detector is ...
