Smart Phone Controlled Arduino Mood Light with Alarm

Smart Phone Controlled Arduino Mood Light with Alarm I recently purchased the Neo Pixel LED strip and was quite impressed by the way it works. The tiny LED’s have an inbuilt driver IC which helps us to control each LED individually and can produce a wide spectrum of colors. Being a garish person who is obsessed with colours I really loved watching these tiny LED’s changing colors so I decided to build somet ...

Measure Sound/Noise Level in dB with Microphone and Arduino

Noise pollution has really started to gain importance due to high population density. A normal human ear could hear sound levels from 0dB to 140dB in which sound levels from 120dB to 140dB are considered to be noise. Loudness or sound levels are commonly measured in decibel(dB), we have some instruments which could measure the sound signals in dB but these meters are slightly expensive and sadly we do not h ...

Arduino Phone

Combining Arduino and other shield modules, we make a mobile phone named Arduino Phone. Meanwhile, we printed a shell for it with a 3D printer. Though not as fine as you think, even a little bit clunky, it is still very cool: that is the point--this is a cell phone made by ourselves. Here is a detailed explanation about the steps of making an Arduino Phone, including the hardware connection and software imp ...
