DIY SPEEDOMETER AND ODOMETER

Step 1: HOW IT WORKS The working of a project is simple. It is also very important to understand it for making the project. Basically the apparatus consists of the reed switch or the magnetic switch mounted on the frame of the cycle and a magnet mounted on the one of the spokes. As the wheel rotates the magnet triggers the switch every rotation. The signal go to the arduino which counts the no of rotation a ...

Let’s go creative with lighting on a DIY laser device

Last year MediaInteractiveDesign and PlayModes , two interactive design and creative technology studios based in Catalonia, collaborated to develop a system to control DIY Laser robot. They created a new shield  to control Dinamyxel servomotors  to work with PWM laser drivers. The shield works using Arduino Ethernet programmed with a specific firmware to control laser and motor using Open Sound Control. The ...

DIY Air Quality Sensing from HabitatMap and Sonoma Tech

High-precision air quality monitors are normally very expensive, but Tim Dye of Sonoma Technology is on a mission to change that.  He’s been working with Michael Heimbinder and habitatmap.org to create a low-cost sensor system that when designed properly and integrated into a software platforms can provide valid data. AirCasting is a platform for recording, mapping, and sharing health and environmental data ...

Small form factor DIY Arduino on stripboard

This board needs FTDI cable to program it. It is not Arduino compatible in the meaning of taking shields (just like every small form factor board isn't). But it has all the same pins (exept 3.3V power and Vin*) available as female headers. The input and output pins that are right next to each other on original Arduino, almost are the same here, except digital 4 and 5. That means the order is: RESET 0 1 2 3 ...

The KITT-duino, DIY Larson Scanner with an Arduino

IMPORTANT: CODE IS NOW UPDATED. FIXES INCLUDE ADDING AN INTEGER VALUE TO MANIPULATE TIMING AND FIXING A DOUBLE-BLINKING LED. Thanks. It is my understanding that many Larson Scanners can only pulse from side to side. I felt that that needed to be changed, seeing as that in the newer (yet short-lived) Knight Rider series revival on NBC for about 1/2 of a real season, the iconic red lights would move from righ ...

Arduino Solar Shield – A DIY solar source for your projects without waiting for PCBs

This instructable is a basic version of Bley Joel's ("It's nine o'clock on a Saturday, the regular crowd shuffles in") Solar Shield, and it should work for most arduinos.  I've tested it with SparkFun's Arduino Pro, and the new Leonardo. Myself and the other Solar Pocketeers* are actually waiting for a new set of PCBs for an advanced version of this solar shield to arrive on Wednesday Sept 5 (in 4 days), bu ...

DIY Arduino Nebulophone Synth

I originally wanted to purchase a Nebulophone but, my El-Cheapo price range didn't like the tag. I realized that I could program my own AtMega 328 by using ArduinoISP Then I found out that if the code was Arduino compatible, why not just use the Arduino as a Nebulophone? Well it was kind of a waste of Arduino but at least I could simplify circuitry. I recently built my DoAnything Shield and could now have a ...
