Arduino Powered Four Letter Word Generator

Build an Arduino-powered version of the "Four Letter Word Generator" (FLW). This version generates "words" on the fly - it does not use a list. The "original" version from the 1970's used B7971 nixie alphanumeric tubes. These tubes are getting hard to find and they're certainly expensive. They also require interfacing with high voltage and an understanding of multiplexing. This version uses a slightly more ...

Compact Protoboard Arduino type thing yea

This ible is for the building of my small, almost matchbox size, arduino compatable board. As seen in this ible.. http://www.instructables.com/id/Pocket-Ardiuno-kit/ I experemented with the one in this ible to see how it can be impreoved, but the consept is the same and so is the build to a degree. Origonally made as a pocket board for taking places with a few components for messing with. Basic specs: - atm ...

How to make your own Arduino board

If your are like me which I am guessing you are, then ever since you got into doing stuff with arduino you have wanted to make your own arduino board. You may be surprised to find out that making the prototyping board is actually very easy, and can have several advantages over using the commercially sold board. For one thing, All the components together cost a little over 15 US dollars as opposed to the $30 ...

Assembling the ZIFduino USB 1.2

The ZIFduino, for all intents and purposes, is an Arduino with a ZIF socket. It's geared toward those that want to do prototyping on the platform, but then move the ATMega chip to a stand-alone environment. The pin layouts are exactly the same, so it should be compatible with most shields designed for the Arduino. The PDF of this instructable can be downloaded at bittyware.com/instructions/Assembling-the-ZI ...

Build Your Own Arduino

Setting up an Arduino on a breadboard has become a process I have grown to love. Within a few minutes you can have a fully working Arduino platform to work with as you will see in this tutorial. There have been several occasions when I was at school and quickly put together one of these for testing some ideas for a project. Plus it is just looks so neat with all the components laid out over the breadboard. ...

uDuino: Very Low Cost Arduino Compatible Development Board

Arduino boards are great for prototyping. However they get rather expensive when you have multiple concurrent projects or need lots of controller boards for a larger project. There are some great, cheaper alternatives (Boarduino, Freeduino) but the costs still add up when you need many of them. This is a way, after about $25-$30 initial investment, to build sub-$10 Arduino-compatible boards with very little ...

Arduino RFID Door Lock

***Updated 8/9/2010*** I wanted to make an easy and secure way to enter my garage. RFID was the best way to unlock my door, even with my hands full I can unlock the door and push it open! I built a simple circuit with a basic ATMega 168 arduino chip and a ID-20 RFID reader to control an electronic door lock. The circuit consists of 3 separate parts, a Reader to read RFID tags, a Controller to accept data fr ...
