How to Control a Nixie Tube With an Arduino

A Nixie Tube is a Neon gas-filled tube, that has a wiremesh anode with various cathodes shaped like numbers or symbols. Back in the 1950s they were used in computers, calculators, and laboratory equipment. Nixie tubes were replaced by LEDs and VFDs(vacuum fluorescent displays)in the 1970s. They were too costly to to mass produce so they were no longer used in most new products. Spice up your next project by ...

Lie Detector and Biofeedback Arduino Based

This tutorial will explain how to build a machine for biofeedback. But first a bit of theory. What is biofeedback? [Font: Wikipedia | https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biofeedback] Biofeedback is the process of gaining greater awareness of many physiological functions primarily using instruments that provide information on the activity of those same systems, with a goal of being able to manipulate them at ...

The Dream Machine Or, How to Be More Awake While You Sleep

This is an inexpensive, DIY, Arduino-powered oneironautics device that allows users to alert themselves when they are in a deep dreamstate, without waking up. In other words, this machine will tell you when you are dreaming, while you are dreaming. Why is this such a big deal? Because, this is the first step to achieving a lucid dream where you are in control and can dream whatever you want. Q: Is this ...

DIY Arduino 3D Laser Scanner

FabScan is an open-source, do-it-yourself 3D laser scanner.It started out as a Bachelor's thesis by Francis Engelmann, supervised by René Bohne. You can find official project here. I made my own box from MDF hood sheets and use different hardware parts.I decided to make this guide to show to you my work. All credits for Arduino software and computer application goes to FabScan team, so thank you very m ...

Using NXT Components With a Micro Controller

This is a guide to using the motors and sensors from the LEGO NXT set with a Parallax Basic Stamp II or BS2.  However, rather than just providing schematics and sample code for the BS2, I'll be providing some theory on how the sensors work as well.  This way, someone using an arduino or other microcontroller should find this guide at least somewhat helpful. My two main sources of information areTh ...

The MicroSlice V1 | a Tiny Arduino Laser Cutter

A few years ago I saw an Instructable where Groover had used a pair of DVD-RW drives to make a pocket laser engraver. Inspired by the idea, driven by the recent purchase of a full-sized 50 watt CO2 laser cutter, and roused by the launch of the Microcontroller contest I took the decision to have a crack at making my own mini laser engraver.I have called the project the MicroSlice.What are the features of the ...
