Nui – IR Volume Controller

Nui is an IR controlled volume controller for analog audio. It sits between your audio source and speakers and can amplify or reduce the volume using IR commands (and eventually BLE). Why do I need this? It all started because I have my trusty Logitech Z-2300 speakers and subwoofer I purchased back around 2004/5. They still work great, but instead of being on my computer, they are used for my TV. Unfortunat ...

Magic Button 4k: the 20USD BMPCC4k Wireless Remote Control

https://youtu.be/_3tlmJh9MJA Many people have asked me to share some details about my wireless controller for the BMPCC4k. Most questions were about the bluetooth control, so I'll mention a few details about that. I am assuming you are familiar with the ESP32 Arduino environment. This version of the remote can control the recording, focus and aperture of the camera via bluetooth. Have a look at the video. I ...

REMOTEXY SIMPLIFIES ARDUINO CONTROL

[Labpacks] wanted to build a robot car controlled by his phone. As a Hackaday reader, of course you probably can imagine building the car. Most could probably even write a phone application to do the control. But do you want to? In most cases, you are better off focusing on what you need to do and using something off the shelf for the parts that you can. In [Labpacks’] case, he used Visuino to avoid writing ...

How to Make a Remote Controlled Robotic Hand With Arduino

https://youtu.be/efO-ooyS-mo This is my school project for the 5th year of high school (I'm Italian, we have 5 years of high school). It consists in an artificial hand controlled by a glove with flex sensors. The artificial hand reproduces the movements of the hand with the control glove, wirelessly. The hand and the glove works both with Arduino. I just wanted to share my work for everyone interested :) Th ...

Drones- A Blessing or a Curse?

The increasing popularity of unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) has created a lot of security issues and possible privacy threats. Drone manufacturers have made them easy to fly so that any person without any experience can buy one and fly it without reading the instruction manual first. This has made them attractive for consumers, but also for criminals. Most of them have a camera to allow the user to go to ...

ARDUINO BOT ROCKS A PS2 CONTROLLER

As far as controlling robots goes, makers today are spoilt for choice. WiFi and Bluetooth enabled microcontrollers are a dime a dozen, and integration with smartphone apps is a cinch. Despite this, the old methods still hold sway, as [Igor Fonseca] demonstrates with a simple Arduino bot. It’s a classic build, using a tracked chassis with a pair of motors providing propulsion and skid steering. The moto ...

AIR HOCKEY TABLE IS A BREEZE TO BUILD

Many of us have considered buying an air hockey table, but are put off by the price. And even if the money is there, those things take up a lot of space. How often are you really going to use it? This DIY air hockey table is the answer. It’s big enough to be fun, but small and light enough to easily stow away in the off-season. At ~$50, it’s a cheap build, provided you have a vacuum cleaner that can switch ...

Around the world with Timeline’s Remote Production

In the world of outdoor broadcast, what do you do when you have an event in South Africa one day, and – let’s say – in the UK the next? It would be a logistical nightmare, not to mention expensive, to ship an OB van with all its kit and a whole production crew between locations in such a short space of time. We spoke to broadcast services specialist, Timeline TV, about the innovative remote production solut ...
