Digital Zoetrope using Arduino

A zoetrope is a mechanical device that animates a series of pictures by spinning them fast enough that the images appear to merge together and move, My digital zoetrope works on a similar principal, by flashing the LEDs while they are spinning it is possible to display text, patterns and possible even simple animations. My design uses an Arduino Pro mini powered by a system of brushes and a magnet and hall ...

RC tank with a moving FPV camera using Arduino

In this instructable I show you how to build remote control tank with FPV camera. At the beginning I build only RC tank without FPV camera but when I was driving it in the house I have not seen where it is. So I came up with that I will add to it the camera mounted on a 2 servos. The range is about 100m, you can also ride with it at home. With this tank you can see what your cat is doing when you're not loo ...

Lightning Shutter Trigger for a Camera using Arduino

I knew there were devices that could trigger a camera to fire during a lightning strike, but their circuits were more complicated than I wanted to make. I’m a software guy not a hardware guy so I decided to use an Arduino and that allowed me to write a little code that made the circuit much simpler. Before I got started I looked at this wikipedia article about lightning so that I could verify this project w ...

Dot Matrix Printer from a CD/DVD Reader with Arduino

Hey! Some time ago while going through the pages here in Instructables, something catch my attention, a printer made of a CD reader, and i was amazed. I thought: "This is incredible, I have to make one!" I know that these kind of projects don't always receive a "I made it", because of its degree of difficulty, so I tried to make mine easier. This project was started more than a year ago, because of the lack ...

Interactive Stereoscopic Installations: visual rupture with the Diplopiascope

What is it? This is an ongoing project that i've been working on to see the potential of interactive stereoscopic installations in examining the perceptual process. I use a setup that i've called a Diplopiascope to investigate this. The Diplopiascope has gone through a few changes but basically it is a stereoscopic viewer that allows the viewer to control the images they are being shown through an analog de ...

Arduino camera Lens Controller

My Lumix GH2 Micro Four Thirds camera not only shoots fantastic high definition videos, but with inexpensive adapters I can use it with older manual lenses that are cheap and often very high quality. I shoot a lot of performance videos for my daughter's dance studio, and I use an f3.5 Nikon 28-85mm zoom lens because it provides a good zoom range and a fast aperture for a zoom lens. The problem with this set ...

Thermal Camera

Have you ever had the desire to see what can not be seen? I never had the ability to see in thermal infrared, and it is rather cool to be able to see in the thermal infrared part of the electromagnetic spectrum. Unfortunately, most thermal (FLIR) cameras are very expensive. In 2011 cameras frequently cost several thousand dollars. This project was created to develop a cheaper solution at a fraction of the c ...
