The New Arduino 101

The Arduino platform has been long known as one of the best ways to get in to electronics and programming for beginners. In my opinion, they've seemed to do a good job of offering products that are simple yet effective for most projects that a beginner might undertake, all without having to know how Arduino works.

While I was very happy with Arduino during their first few years on the market, it seems as though…

Porting AnalysIR firmware to Particle’s Photon platform

We have just finished porting our (single source) firmware from a range of other ‘Arduino’ type platforms to Particle’s Photon, having received it yesterday & thought it would be useful sharing some of our experiences for other ‘newbies’. The photon is one of a breed of modern IoT devices hitting the market at relatively low cost. It features a STM32F205 120Mhz ARM Cortex M3 processor running at 120MHz with 1MB flash, 128KB RAM and the all important WiFi. We have been wanting to support…

Simple Infrared PWM on Arduino

We are often asked on discussion boards, about conflicts between IRremote or IRLib and other Arduino Libraries. In this post, we present a sketch for ‘Simple Infrared PWM on Arduino’. This is the first part in a 3 part series of posts. Part 1 shows how to generate the simple Infrared carrier frequency on Arduino, using any available IO pin and without conflicting with other libraries. Part 2 will show how to send a RAW infrared signal using this approach and…

Tutorial: XBEE with Arduino

On this tutorial, we will show how to use the XBee with Arduino, using the XBee Shield and the XBee explorer. The XBee uses the 2.4GHz and the IEEE 802.15.4 standard. With this board, you can exchange information between two microcontrollers, or computers. You can also create point-to-point or multi-point networks.

Get the XBee explorer and…

How to hack a remote control (and a flying shark) I

One of the common uses of Arduino is to remote control things. Most of the times we are interested to control something that we built, but sometimes we would like to improve someting that already has a remote. In this project I would like to improve the control of my Air Suimmer Shark. More specific, I´d like to…

DIY: Animatronic talking takeout container


The animatronic talking takeout container is a fun little toy that is good for hours of amusement. This idea came about after having taken a special effects film class when I was in college. While in the class, I made a short film of myself talking to a takout container with a face drawn on it.However, not having the know-how to do…

ATmega328 Overclock (30MHz)

Hello everyone,

This is more fun oriented project than something useful (or not) since ATmega328 was not designed for clock frequency above 20MHz (see datasheet). So, 30MHz is push it far from the limit. :)

Besides, I…

Voltage Logger does it the right way

The folks over at Adafruit have been busy designing an LED matrix wristwatch for a while now. The circuit works great, but since this watch is powered by a coin cell battery, they’d really like to get the power consumption as low as possible. This means they needed a test rig to measure the consumption…

The MineCraftClock (get up before explodes)

The user Young_Maker's (from Reddit) made a clock radio with arduino but its plays tunes from game Minecraft. The Arduino controls a LCD display. A RTC (to accurate time) and an uMp3 board were used to play random music from the game. The soundtrack is a way to gently wake up in the morning. But if time runs out, the boom of an explosion is played to make sure you’re not late for work.

Get code for Arduino …

DIY 8x8x8 LED Cube

Building an LED cube has been a project that we have always wanted to do, but the opportunity just never presented itsself. However, recently we were able to get our hands on an 8x8x8 LED kit (that's 512 LEDs!) which provides all the parts (95% of them) and instructions for building your own LED cube. The instructions weren't the greatest, so we went ahead and documented the entire process of building an 8x8x8 LED Cube. Hopefully it…
