Use your android phone sensors on the arduino

Hello, this is my very first step-by-step instructable, and today, we're going to learn how the sensors in your android smartphone can communicate with your arduino. In modern smartphones, there are a lot of useful sensors for an ingenious arduino project. I have a motorola DEFY, for example and it has (at least) 6 sensors : - light sensor - proximity sensor - aGPS (assisted gps) - compass/magnetometer - ac ...

How I’m building my bi-copter with Android and Arduino

Last year I was fascinated by the "How to build your own Quadrocopter" by Lenz Grimmer and decided that somehow I should try to do a similar thing. This talk is about the way I'm building a bi-copter using lessons learned for last year's talk and also with the errors I've made so far. My journey to getting a flying device running Multiwii is not yet complete. In this talk I will present all the common probl ...

3D Printed Webcam Controller

The camera controller box is an easy way to rotate a webcam from a PC or remotely through the internet. Step 1: Materials and 3D files In this project I used a Teensy 2.0 micro-controller since it was available, but you can use any other MCU like an ATtiny85 or an atmega328. The servo model number is S9001. I designed a place for a weight on the base part, in order to prevent vibrations and to keep the came ...

A World of Possibilities with Java ME + Bluetooth + Arduino

"This presentation shows how to easily go from user stories to automated integration tests that themselves read like user stories. You can accomplish this by using custom domain-specific languages. Too often our automated integration tests rely on coding and intimate technical knowledge of our systems, which not only limits who can write integration tests but also clouds our understanding of what the tests ...

A credit card sized Ethernet Arduino compatable controller board

I love the Arduino as a simple and accessible controller platform for many varied projects.  A few months ago, a purchased an Ethernet shield for my Arduino controller to work on some projects with a mate of mine - it was a massive hit - for the first time, I could control my projects remotely using simple software. That got me thinking - The Arduino costs about $30AUD, and the Ethernet board cost about $30 ...
