Bluetooth plus Infrared Controlled Robotic Arm

Hi. I’m Darren a 17 year old hobbyist, and this is the first Instructable I’m posting here, so I apologize if it kinda sucks! I hope it's good enough... So how did the idea of a robotic arm come to me? Well, the first thing I remember is our chemistry teacher (!) coming to me yelling that she has a project for me. It was for science Olympiad, however, apparently it was different from all the others, "someth ...

DIY Mod an Omnibot 80’s Robot with Voice, Camera, Servos, Bluetooth

*Check back for more updates on this build :) So, have you heard of the Omnibot? Well! Any kid from the 80's will remember how amazing this robot was. For you young kids, this robot was released in the early 80's by Tomy. The robot was "programmable", in the sense that the actions were recorded to a casette tape. As you operated the robot over its remote control, the casette would record tones for each acti ...

Remote Control Door – Internet Your Thing

We can instantly open a door or control anything we can connect. It works from any iPhone, Android, or PC. After connecting something we want to control, download the free app to a PC, open a port, and control it remotely from anywhere. It's open source so anyone can modify it to sense and control anything they like. You can try it out here. In the kickstarter video we show creating a virtual fence around o ...

Control Arduino Wirelessly with MATLAB

Been seeing few DIYs on how to establish a communication between MATLAB application and Arduino that is hardwired to PC. However, I haven't encountered anything that control Arduino via MATLAB wirelessly using the ENC28J60 compatible Ethernet shield. In this ible', I'm going to show the simplest way to control Arduino using MATLAB wirelessly. WHAT YOU NEED? 1) Arduino - You need a controller. I used Arduino ...

FaceBooth – One button to facebook photobooth

I wanted to make a photbooth for a Christmas party. I wanted it to be simple to operate and only be one click easy so that even a guest who was chemically uncoordinated could even operate it.I wanted a solution that would take a photo and post it on facebook. Guests could later tag themselves or others. There are three parts to this solution: The Photobooth software The Button Software for the button to tal ...

Arduino DDNS (Dynamic DNS) by Open-Electronics.org

This device captures the IP address of your network and it publish on site DynDNS.com. All without PC. It allow a remote access to your LAN even if the IP address of the connections changes. For logistics reasons the provider can not assign a IP fixed for all users, so many users, especially private, work with a dynamic IP or public IP: in practice when they connect modem or router, to their connection is a ...

Network-status indicator

I run a NFS/NIS network under a combination of OS's for the upper-division physics lab here at CSUC, and one source of irritation is when one machine goes down and nobody lets me know until suddenly that machine is absolutely necessary NOW! So I figured an Arduino, living in the machine on my desk, might serve as an early-warning system for network problems. I used red/green common-cathode LEDs for my indic ...

Pachube Client using Strings with Arduino

This example shows you how to answer a HTTP request using an Ethernet shield. Specifically, it connects to pachube.com, a free datalogging site. The example requires that you set up a pachube.com account, as well as a pachube feed (for more information on setting up an input feed, please click here). Your Ethernet shield will then connect to that feed and upload sensor data every 10 seconds. Additionally, t ...
