THIS ARDUINO IS FEEDING THE FISHES

Fish are easy to keep as pets, requiring little more than regular feeding to keep them happy in the short-to-medium term. If you’re going on holiday, it can be nice to know that your pets are being taken care of, but finding someone to take on the chore can be hard. [Trevor_DIY] doesn’t need to worry about that, however – he’s built an automatic feeder to handle the job. The build uses an Arduino Uno as the ...

A 32-BIT BOOST FOR YOUR 3D PRINTER

It might not be the kind of thing you’ve given much thought to, but if you’ve ever used a desktop 3D printer, it was almost certainly being controlled by an 8-bit CPU. In fact, the common RAMPS controller is essentially just a motor driver shield for the Arduino Mega. Surely we can do a bit better than that in 2019? For his entry into this year’s Hackaday Prize, [Robert] is working on a 32-bit drop-in repla ...

DIY Mini Quadcopter with 3D-Printed Frame and Custom Firmware

I wanted to try my hand at a true "DIY" project, designing and building my own micro quadcotper frame and writing my own firmware in C++.  In this post I will describe the frame and build; in my next post I will talk about the firmware. Excluding stuff I had lying around the shop, (heat-shrink tubing, EC-3 connectors, velcro, cable ties, etc.) the cost came to just under $170: 3D-printed frame "free"! Fligh ...
