Mini BillBoard

Designing a Mini BillBoard using LED Lights(different colors) , Arduino and Bread Board. Thought of creating a mini billboard, that could display my name ("Josh") . This is for one of the build nights (required us to use LED lights). This billboard would blink in out josh several times just like any big billboard. Here is a link to the video of the project Mini BillBoard . Follow me on twitter @SJTGs Step 1 ...

Dark Sensor With LDR, Transistor and a LED

You wan't do a dark sensor with a LDR, one transistor and one LED and you don't know how to do it? In this small tutorial I will explain to you how you can do that even if you know only the basics of electronic. Parts you need: 1 Breadboard; 1 Power source of 12v; 1 Transistor (in this case we use the BC547); 1 Resistor of 1KOhm; 1 Resistor of 680KOhm; 1 LED (in this case blue); 1 LDR: Some condutor cables ...

Arduino Charliplexed Heart, Just in Time for Valentines Day.

Here is an Arduino controlled Charliplexed LED heart just in time for Valentine's Day. It uses a total of 6 wires to controll the 27 LEDs. A PIC or AVR could easily be used for this, but I have Arduinos lying around and they are easy to program. Plus I want to be able to have input options later when I have time to write them. Go here for a great explination of Charliplexing. I've actually made a kit for th ...

DIY Bare Minimum Arduino Mega 2560

[2017 Update] Eagle files please click here. The objective of this project is to create a version of Arduino Mega 2560 board that has lower component count and smaller board size. Personally to be used for robotics projects that require ATmega2560's 256 KB flash and digital/analog pins, where the size, weight, and USB port location of the original design is not ideal.

Arduino Laser Harp

A couple of weeks ago I presented my culmination project, framed laser harp, at New York City College of Technology. Work on it was so interesting for me, that I decided to share it here. I am an Arduino amateur and don't have any professional experience in electrical engineering or programming. Neither am I a musician. Probably that's why I had so much fun: when you are moving blindly, you can't see the gr ...

Arduino LED Matrix

https://youtu.be/Eu9ExmHkkIk https://youtu.be/_srC_gPAEP0 In this short tutorial you will learn how to make an Arduino-powered LED matrix. Unlike several other designs, this one uses a "companion" computer to notify the Arduino which LEDs should be powered. I have provided the code for the Arduino, as well as some Java code for displaying text on the LED matrix (this includes a custom-made 7x5 character fon ...
