ShiftOut Learning Examples | Foundations | Hacking | Links Started by Carlyn Maw and Tom Igoe Nov, 06 Shifting Out & the 595 chip How send data from Arduino to Google Docs Spreadsheet A very interesting feature of Arduino is the great avalaibility of library that make the developer work very simple and fast. Make a Web Server, a Web Client or post a Tweet haven’t difficulty. Try to do the same application with the Microchip’s Stack TCP/IP…. It’s not impossible but for beginner developpers is of course hard.
View topic - Omnidirectional Remote Controlled Robot I just did a very quick and rough assembly... and well... it works kinda, the wheels without any plastidip or similar on a wooden floor slip and slide a ton and my tiny DC motors with not much down-gearing in the gearbox spin way too fast, the robot moves in the expected direction reasonably well, but it's basically spinning at least 4 times the distance is moves if that makes sense, and since it has 4 wheels with no suspension or give what so ever going over anything makes at least one wheel free-wheel in the air. And this is without the 300g battery, motor controller boards, arduino mega and second level on top, I expect the performance to get even worse with that weight on top. I'll need to find something like plasti-dip to coat the rollers with as well, clearly needs more traction. Quick sketch
Teensy USB Development Board The Teensy is a complete USB-based microcontroller development system, in a very small footprint, capable of implementing many types of projects. All programming is done via the USB port. No special programmer is needed, only a standard "Mini-B" USB cable and a PC or Macintosh with a USB port. Update: Discussion / Support Forum Teensy 3.1 changes from Teensy 3.0
Home - Gadgeteer A new way to make sophisticated devices Even someone with little or no electronics background can build devices made up of components like sensors, lights, switches, displays, communications modules, motor controllers, and much more. Just pick your components, plug them into a mainboard and program the way they work together. .NET Gadgeteer uses the .NET Micro Framework to make writing code for your device as easy as writing a desktop, Web or Windows Phone application. An open source and open hardware community project If you're building projects with .NET Gadgeteer, you'll find inspiration and product information on this site. If you're interested in building .NET Gadgeteer hardware, you can find hardware interface specifications and core libraries at A variety of hardware vendors are building components for .NET Gadgeteer, so you’ll have a huge assortment of modules to choose from.
Arduino to Twitter over USB - wellsb.com There are many reasons to want a project with the ability to provide status feedback. One useful method for providing feedback is by posting updates to Twitter. This enables one (or many people) to monitor a system from anywhere. It is even possible to, then, receive SMS updates to your phone. Program an ATtiny Using an Arduino I am a big fan of the Arduino platform. For those who aren’t familiar with the Arduino, it is a microprocessor development environment & ecosystem. You can visit their site for more info. I started playing with the Arduino and soon discovered the ATtiny microprocessor chip, which is a much smaller cousin to the ATmega series which is used in the Arduino. Unfortunately, the Arduino IDE did not support it. Since most micro development apps run only on Windows (I use Ubuntu Linux), and require either expensive compilers or hard to use C or Assembler, I was never up to the effort required in using the ATtiny chips.
BaronPilot Arduino based copilot autostabilizer with Nintendo Wii component (tricopter, quadcopter) This is a program to stabilize a multicopter (copilot), runs on microcontroller like Arduino or Teensy++ and only a wii motion plus, no other electronics needed. These project started April, 2010. Supported are planes, tricopter, quadricopter (+ and x config), hexacopter (penta and coaxial). Voltaic Systems We went through photos that customers have turned in over the years from their bicycle touring trips and here are some of our favorites. For more on mounting systems on your bicycle, see our guide for solar and bicycle touring. … Read more World's First Manned Flight Of An Electric Multicopter Thomas Senkel of e-volo made this first manned flight with an e-powered multicopter at an airstrip near Karlsruhe, Germany in October 2011. The flight lasted one minute and 30 seconds, after which the constructor and test pilot stated: "The flight characteristics are good natured. Without any steering input it would just hover there on the spot".
