It interacts with the outside word through sensors, leds, motors, speakers... even the internet; this makes it a flexible platform for lots of creative projects. Some popular uses include: - programmable light displays that respond to music or human interaction - robots that use information from sensors to navigate or perform other tasks - unique, customizable controllers and interfaces for music, gaming, and more - connecting real world objects to the internet (twitter is especially popular) - anything interactive - automating and prototyping There are tons of amazing Arduino Projects posted online, here are some of my favorites: Twitter Mood Light by RandomMatrix, a light that changes color depending on what kinds of emotional words are trending on Twitter Nebulophone Synth by Bleep Labs: Singing Plant by Mads Hobye: Polargraph Drawing Machine by Sandy Noble:

Easy Arduino: Two Projects To Help You Get Started

The computers we use every day are powerful, but they’re terrible at knowing what’s going on around them. Your laptop isn’t exactly equipped to sense light or moisture, for example. Arduino, on the other hand, is specifically designed to stay keyed in to the outside world. It’s equipped with a board full of inputs and outputs for sensors to simplify communication. The Arduino was developed by Massimo Banzi and his cofounders out of Ivrea, Italy, who named the device after his favorite bar. Regardless of which Arduino model you buy, the utility of the microcontroller comes out when you use it for “Internet Of Things” projects—whether you want to connect to the real world, the cloud, or both, Arduino makes it easy.

These days arduino projects are used for academic course fulfillment as well. In any case, Arduino is a very interesting platform to build real world projects. List of Arduino Projects Gas Leakage Detector with GSM Module for SMS Alert and Sound Alarm A very interesting arduino project using MQ5 gas sensor and GSM Module. Detect the presence of LPG or other types of gases like CH4, Butane etc with help of MQ5 gas sensor and Arduino. The program in this project also checks for shutdown process – that is – if the gas leak problem has been addressed and eliminated properly. 10 Simple Arduino Projects For Beginners with Code.

10 Great Arduino Projects for Beginners

The problem is, most beginners aren’t sure where to start, and without previous Maker experience, or some sort of electronics background, even beginner’s projects can seem rather… well, daunting. Today we’re going to feature 10 simple projects that even the most novice of Arduino DIY’ers can build without the need for expensive add-ons, or hard-to-find parts. To get started, all you’ll need are the items that come in most Arduino starter kits, such as: An ArduinoJumper wiresResistorsBreadboardLEDsButtons For the sake of brevity, items that are typically included in starter kits aren’t included in the overviews provided here, but you will get a full list of items needed on the tutorial itself.

While the Arduino UNO and older Duemilanove are two of the most common Arduino boards, the MEGA and the Yún should not be avoided. The MEGA is much like the UNO, however, it has an expanded number of input and output pins, and is often used to control 3D printers. The Yún is ideal for project where onboard wifi connectivity is a must. Don’t forget that shields –boards that plug directly into the Arduino’s header pins– are a fantastic, rapid way to add functionality to a project.

Not only do shields provide a quick hardware solution, but almost every shield on the market has accompanying software libraries to leverage their unique, individual hardware features.

I find this almost therapeutic to watch, perhaps it's a little OCPD in me but seeing an Arduino UnoArduino Uno control a machine which will sort out your sweeties by colour is great. This little video does well to demonstrate it working with the 3D printed parts, an RGB and an infra-red sensor doing the work in tune with the motors.
