Windows 95 on an Apple Watch

Pretty much. I was born in the nineties, and the first personal computer my family bought (a $3000 screamer with a 300 MHz Pentium II, 256 MB of RAM, and the optional Boston Acoustics speaker system) ran Windows 95. Also, this isn’t the first time I’ve installed an old operating system on a watch. Here’s a video of my Apple Watch running Mac OS 7.5.5: But How? Unlike the above port of the Mini vMac emulator ...

Interfacing Stepper Motor to Arduino

In this article, we are publishing a project which explains different aspects of interfacing a Stepper Motor with Arduino. Stepper motor is a specially designed DC motor which comes with advantages of both a servo motor and a normal dc motor. Compared to a normal Dc motor, the maximum rpm a stepper motor can produce is very low. But they have the advantage that they can be positioned accurately. Unlike serv ...

Arduino Gear Motor Interface Using IC L293D

In this article, we are publishing a project which explains different aspects of Arduino-Gear motor interface. Gear motor is a specially designed DC motor whose gear assembly helps in increasing the torque and reducing the speed. Compared to a normal DC motor, maximum rpm a gear motor can produce is less. But they have the advantage that by using the correct combination of gears, its rpm can be reduced to a ...

4Duino Servo Control

In this project, we will control the angular position of the DC Servo Motor via an I/O port (with PWM output capability) and touch knob. The 4Duino resistive touch display is used as a means for a graphical interface to control the angular positon of the Servo. Servo motor is a very useful device for hobbyists and robot enthusiasts as it allows your project to have moving parts. Servo motors are unique, as ...

DC Motor featuring 4Duino-24

In this project, we will learn how to control the speed and direction of a DC motor via I/O ports with PWM output capability, a L293D quad half-h drivers IC and 4D Workshop widgets. In its simplest form, a DC motor has two wires which is connected to a power supply. Depend on whichever way current flows in the DC motor, this will determine the direction in which the motor will spin. Motors are often used in ...
