Most of you have wished that you had a remote control that could be set to turn off your hotel TV after a pre-determined amount of time. The TV-GO-sleep timer exactly does that. The timer is built around an Arduino microcontroller, and hence can also be used to make your own modifications at any time. A simple push button is used to set the timer, which is displayed…Continue

This Predator suit was premiered at this year’s Monsterpalooza conference. It’s nothing short of incredible. But the shoulder cannon is really what caught our attention. The thing is fully motorized and includes sound and light firing effects.
We saw a glimpse of what [Jerome Kelty] is capable of about two years ago. He was showing off an Arduino-based animatronics…Continue

The Oculus Rift will most likely lead to a new genre of first-person games, but it could also make drones a lot more fun to use. For his master’s thesis, Jonathan of Intuitive Aerial is working on Oculus FPV, a drone camera system that streams 3D video that can be viewed with the Rift.
The system uses a Black Armored Drone carrying a laptop and…Continue

The line between art and technology isn't just being blurred, it's being erased altogether. Painting and sketching from photographs and life, for example, is a technique that is now being mastered by robots. The latest, called eDavid, combines a camera, computer vision software, and a standard welding robot arm to skillfully recreate (in a variety of styles no less) any image…Continue

Everyone loves video games. But it can be difficult to enjoy certain games if you are injured or disabled and don't have the manual dexterity needed to execute fast button combos. Fortunately, we can use an Arduino to send signals to the chip in the controller that simulate the buttons being pressed. This lets you pre-program a series of commands…Continue

Real talk? The skies of the future are going to be full of drones. Government drones, drones owned by companies, personal drones, drones for surveillance, drones for environmental protection, drones delivering pizzas. For our part, we believe that if the skies are going to be crowded with nightmarish flying robots watching our every…Continue
