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…Continue

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…Continue

Audette blogged about his creation of a mind-controlled Hexbug battle spider that uses a SSVEP (Steady State Visually Evoked Potential) paradigm to move the toy robot left, right, and forward, an OpenBCI board, and an Arduino Uno.

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…Continue

On this tutorial, we will show you how to connect a basic 16x2 LCD to your Arduino.
1x LCD 16x2
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…Continue

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…Continue

Classical Pong game implemented on an Arduino Uno using a PCD8544 LCD screen which is better known as the Nokia 5110 screen. Player bars are controlled by a potentiometer for each player. If you want the bar to go left, just turn the potentiometer left.
For more information,…Continue

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
