(semi) automated drill press table for PCB manufacture

Motivation As you may have seen in earlier articles, I produce my own PCBs at home with the toner transfer method. After some experimentation the PCB quality is quite satisfactory, but drilling the holes for even a moderate number of through-hole components is very tiresome. When you design your PCBs with a proper CAD software (such as KICAD), you have the coordinates of all drill holes anyway, so how about ...

Yet Another Daft Punk Coffee Table (5×5 LED Matrix) using arduino

Yes, I know this has been done before, but I wanted to build my own, using as few parts as possible.  I built this as a table top or wall mount model, but it can be scaled up to make a coffee table.  I built it as a study for a more ambitious project, which will be an 8x8 RGB coffee table.  In designing this project, I wanted to keep the part count and cost as low as possible, and also to design the softwar ...

ASCII Table using Arduino

Demonstrates the advanced serial printing functions by generating a table of characters and their ASCII values in decimal, hexadecimal, octal, and binary. For more on ASCII, see asciitable.com Circuit image developed using Fritzing. For more circuit examples, see the Fritzing project page None, but the Arduino has to be connected to the computer. Code /* ASCII table Prints out byte values in all possible fo ...

Musical Table using Arduino

  The Musical Table is a toy table that allows kids to play musical phrases by moving toys around the surface. Each of seven switches can play different musical phrases in four bases, making 27 different musical phrases in total.  Some of the phrases are musically related and some of them are not. This toy table can help kids to develop musicality by playing phrases in logical order. The table also allows y ...

Interactive Arduino Powered Coffee Table

One quick fore note: this is my first Instructable and my first large Arduino project, so if you see any stupid errors or have an idea of how things could be done better, then please let me know. Now that that's out of the way I'll begin, I started designing this around September last year as my A2 Product Design project and thought that it might make a good Instructable once it was finished. The design of ...
