4Duino UCAM-II Demo

The main objective of this project is to show how to interface a uCAM-II serial camera to 4Duino. uCAM-II is a highly integrated micro serial camera which could be controlled by any host that requires a video camera or a JPEG compressed still camera for embedded imaging applications. uCAM-II processes various features making it trivial to interface to a microcontroller. Following are the list of few feature ...

Tools for the Electronics Hobbyist Part 1- Graphical Components Tester

When I started to deal with Chinese electronics suppliers from websites like Alibaba, Aliexpress and Taobao, I discovered that there are huge amount of undiscovered tools from the Chinese market. They are not easily discovered, maybe due to the Chinese language barrier, especially when we deal with a Chinese website like Taobao or maybe because most of us are used to deal with known electronics distributors ...

Arduino-based Graphical Heart Rate Monitor

Introduction: Like many out there, I enjoy a good exercise session, whether it be indoors or outdoors. As part of that I purchased a Polar branded heart rate monitor, which came with a "Wearlink" chest strap and RS300Xsd receiver watch. The watch is able to do quite a bit of analysis on its own, in terms of recording heart rate averages, target zones and the like, but without the additional FlowLink device ...

DMM provides numerical and graphical displays

The DMM (digital multimeter) is a basic measurement tool for nearly every electrical engineer and many other engineers. With the push to constantly improve power efficiency in electronic designs comes a need to not only measure voltage and current, but to dynamically see them as well. Keithey's DMM7510 combines a 7½-digit DMM with an 18-bit, 1 Msample/s digitizer, which lets you see measurements both numeri ...

Google Weather on graphical display with Arduino

In this project, I am using an Arduino board to show forecast of the weather from Google Weather service on a VGA screen. The display is obviously graphical one, with icons and some colorful text. It is one of those gadgets I wanted to have for some time now – A weather forecasting display that is there just like the wall clock. Yes I know you got nicer looking things on your angry-birds machine... I simply ...

Variations II Of Variations II

Variations II of Variations II is a kinetic sculpture inspired by John Cage’s Variations series. Cage’s Variations II is a graphical composition that generates musical events using measurements of distance between dots and lines on a piece of paper. The instructions for the piece determine the behavior of rotating panels and images synchronized to be projected onto the sculpture. Motors drive the rotation o ...
