Arduino Tweeting Cat Door

Tweeting Cat Door using an Arduino

Note: to see everything on one page, please go to: www.tweetingcatdoor.com After receiving many emails requesting Instructions and Kits for building the “Tweeting Cat Door “, I decided to make a version that is stand-alone and doesn’t need a computer to be run and that is easy to be put together by anyone with a …

AVR System with Arduino

Build a Complete AVR System and Play Mastermind using Arduino

The game Mastermind has been around a long time, and I remember getting a board version with colored pegs when I was a kid. I love this game, as it is solvable simply by pure logic. One player (or a computer/microcontroller) chooses a sequence of colors from a pool of available colors and then the …

Arduino Target Board

Arduino from Evil Mad Scientist ATmegaxx8 Target Board

I have been making my own Arduino’s on strip-board but recently bought some of the Evil Mad Scientist ATmegaxx8 Target Boards. While they weren’t designed as an Arduino board they are perfect to use as they have: – places for the crystal and capacitors (XTL and C1, C2) or resonator – place for the power …

Arduino Bootloader

Burning the Bootloader on ATMega328 using Arduino UNO as ISP

I had one remote controlled project that needed an Arduino running 24/7 but I didn’t want to leave my $32 Arduino UNO, so I decided to buy some pieces and created my own Arduino. The most important part was buying the microcontroller. These were my options: ATMega328P-PU with Optiboot ~ $5.50 (Sparkfun) / $5.19 (Digikey) …

DIY Arduino or The DIY-Duino

THIS ENTIRE TUTORIAL IS ALSO AVAILABLE ON MY WEBSITE AT http://www.theparsley.com/arduino/diy/ To quote the Arduino website: “Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It’s intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.” I got one a while ago and life has never …
