Sleep Tracking using an Arduino

Background and motivation This project was motivated by two things: my almost complete inability to get out of bed in the morning, and my fondness for recording data from routine activities and making graphs with that data. My main problem with waking up in the morning is that feeling of grogginess along with an intense desire to sleep more. However, I've noticed that sleeping without an alarm clock, and ju ...

Alarm Clock with Tetris to Prove You’re Awake using Arduino

This is an Arduino powered alarm clock that after hitting snooze twice the alarm will not cancel until the user has cleared 4 lines in the game Tetris. You physically turn the clock sideways, so the screen is vertical, to play Tetris.  It's never fun to wake up in the morning but playing a little Tetris is at least somewhat enjoyable and quite effective. Feel free to vote for me in the microcontriller conte ...

Lego Spybotics with Arduino

A friend gave me his old Lego Spybotics robot, however, the programming environment that goes along with it is a bit too orientated to the younger user. So why not control it using an Arduino? Step 1: Open up! In order to get this robot moving, we need to borrow its motors. There are two DC motors in the robot. This is great, because we can control them independently, allowing forward, backwards and turning ...

The Soil Moisture Sensor using arduino

You are building a cheap soil moisture sensor so the brain can read the amount of moisture in the soil. The version we are building is very low tech, but it is also very cheap and easy to build. It consists of a block of packing foam with a couple of wires shoved into it. And the great thing is that it's possible to use reclaimed materials in much of it's construction. If you cruise around the web, you will ...

Arduino Automatic Watering System For Plants Sprinkler

Last month, Elecrow have left from the original office and moved to a new office. We will miss our original office where we worked so hard for more than two years, we will miss everything here, the desks, the windows, and those potted plants, that we cared for more than two years with our neighbor. Our neighbor, a design team, led by a man named Kimi, we had so many memories together in the difficult early ...

The iButton garage-door opener using an Arduino

I've made an iButton garagedoor opener and logger. On a Dutch (kind of) eBay (www.marktplaats.nl) I found some iButtons and readers very cheap. I had no idea what to do with them, but I bought them anyway. My garage opens with a push on a button, so it must be possible to get that working with the iButton. I also found some really cheap (0,50 euro) displays, so it would be nice if I also can make a screen t ...

Arduino Controlled Can Crusher With LCD Readout

I have always wanted to do an instructable, but I never had a somewhat original idea that hasn't been done a million times, or something that had no means of building. I have some friends who recycle aluminum for money and after seeing the large bags of an unknown amount and weight of uncrushed cans, I decided to make a machine that would crush the cans, count the cans, and tell the weight of the number of ...

Bicycle North Indicator using Arduino

Magnetoception is the ability of some animals to detect magnetic fields as a means of orienting themselves.  Although humans do not seem to posses the same biological mechanisms that allow other animals to sense magnetic fields, there are still many ways that we can improve our sense of spatial orientation. This project is an attachment to your bicycle that beeps to let you know that you are moving in the d ...

Arduino controlled animatronic wooden head (reading lamp) usnig arduino

This head is a reading lamp which can be adjusted for direction of lighting, and dimmed as required. This Instructable combines Arduino programming, some simple electronics, carving with hand and power tools, mechanical control and a bit of woodwork. Apart from the Arduino and a few components it is mostly made from reclaimed materials. I am rather pleased with it. What's in this instructable I have include ...

Precision Fermentation: Arduino-Controlled Crock Pot Yogurt Maker

A homemade thermostat attachment for a crock pot (or other electric heating device). It can be used to precisely control the temperature of the crock pot for things like yogurt fermentation. Why Making yogurt is fun. It is also way cheaper than buying it. You can make yogurt on the stove or in an oven, however it is fairly temperature-sensitive. I am lazy. I don’t like waiting around for the milk to sterili ...
