Let’s cook: 3D scanner based on Arduino and Processing

Ever wonder of copypaste method, usable in real life, not only in virtual reality? Me too. It is  21th century, and those are nearer than most of all can imagine! This is possible thank to 3d scanners and printers. So let's try to scan something! First of all, sorry for my English skills. It is not my native language, I have learned it at school, but don't have many occasions to use it, except of reading ar ...

DIY Arduino Motor Shield [for only $8!] (L298N 2x4A)

Today, I'm going to show you how to make an Arduino motor shield (driver) at a low cost. It works splendidly, its posses almost all the characteristics of the original Arduino motor shield. It's almost considered as a clone. The original Arduino motor shield has the same motor driver chip (L298), the only difference with it, is the package type, my project contains the vertical version of the chip L298 (wit ...

How to build an Arduino synth

This is a super simple and easily customizable little synthesizer. This is my first time using the Arduino and also with acrylic, both I found very fun to work with though.  This is also my first Instructables so hopefully I have explained this well enough. Step 1: Part and tools For the innards: Arduino Uno power source(I used a 9v with an adapter) 4- 5k linear potentiometers 200mm linear SoftPot(you can g ...

Arduino Solar Shield – A DIY solar source for your projects without waiting for PCBs

This instructable is a basic version of Bley Joel's ("It's nine o'clock on a Saturday, the regular crowd shuffles in") Solar Shield, and it should work for most arduinos.  I've tested it with SparkFun's Arduino Pro, and the new Leonardo. Myself and the other Solar Pocketeers* are actually waiting for a new set of PCBs for an advanced version of this solar shield to arrive on Wednesday Sept 5 (in 4 days), bu ...

DIY BioPrinter

Bioprinting is printing with biological materials. Think of it as 3D printing, but with squishier ingredients! There's a lot of work being done at research labs and big companies like Organovo on print human tissues and human organs, with an eye towards drug testing, and transplantation into humans. Check out these amazing TED talks by Anthony Atala, for example: Anthony Atala: Growing new organs Anthony At ...

How to build your very own Time Fountain using Arduino

We have all seen the sweet videos on the tube! You know the magical water fountains that seems to "freeze" the water droplets in mid air, or even make them go backwards! I've been fascinated by these "magical" thingamabobs  for quite some while now, and a couple of days ago I decided to make my very own. Follow me through fire and flames (no, not really, but through failure and success) and I'll show you ho ...

DIY Arduino Nebulophone Synth

I originally wanted to purchase a Nebulophone but, my El-Cheapo price range didn't like the tag. I realized that I could program my own AtMega 328 by using ArduinoISP Then I found out that if the code was Arduino compatible, why not just use the Arduino as a Nebulophone? Well it was kind of a waste of Arduino but at least I could simplify circuitry. I recently built my DoAnything Shield and could now have a ...

LilyPad Arduino e-Reader Case

For a youth and technology class, we were assigned the creation of an Arduino LilyPad project.  I liked the idea of connecting the LilyPad project to literacy, so I chose to make a Kindle case that would play music [Hedwig’s Theme from the Harry Potter movies] and display white LED lights—illuminating the word read—when the case flap was opened. Step 1: Finding your materials. Sewing Materials: • Sewing Mac ...
