On this tutorial you see how to make a line following robot with the Zumo Chassis Kit, an Garagino (Arduino Uno compatible), two micro motors and insulation tape (to make the circuit). The circuit is inspired on Luigi Raceway circuit of game Mario Kart 64.
The image below shows the circuit with insulating tape (on the left) and the circuit from the game (on the right):…Continue

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. :)
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…Continue

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 …Continue

A full Arduino MP3 player using a SD card and a MP3 module based on a chip from VLSI (VS1002d, VS1003 VS1053). The player includes a small amplifier and two speakers, making it a small Jukebox in the age of Ipods.
The project includes a…Continue

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…Continue

Electronics components are mostly bought from shops in India.But some times some components are unavailable or at remote places no such shops are available to the hobbyists.Here is the list of good electronics E-Shops with location and shipping costs.
Before that, this site is worth mentioning, for check the average cost of any electronic components.

On this tutorial, we will show how to use a Peltier with Arduino. The Peltier, or Thermoelectric coolers, are a device that can transfer heat from one side to another when a current is applied. You can use it as a heater or a cooler. This Peltier can be powered up to 15,4V and 7A.
To use the Peltier, you will need a…Continue
