Guilherme Martins : PAPERduino’s design

Guilherme Martins : PAPERduino’s design
This is a fully functional version of the Arduino. We eliminated the PCB and use paper and cardboard as support and the result is.. the PAPERduino :D This is the the first version of the layout design, next we will try more designs, and another materials. You just need to print the top and the bottom layout, and glue them to any kind of support you want. We hope that you start making your own boards. If you do, please share your photos with us, we would love to see them ;) There is no USB direct connection, so to program the paperduino you will need some kind of FTDI cable or adapter.

Triggering a Camera’s Flash with Sound and Light Update: Check out my latest Camera Axe project for a much more robust device that handles this or my store where I sell the Camera Axe. For those just wanting to see the pretty pictures, click here. This article focuses on making the sensors used to trigger a camera’s flash using a microphone or a cheap laser pointer. Since I’ve already described how to do the actual firing of a camera’s flash here I won’t focus on that part of this project today. There are a lot of places on the web that describe how to trigger a flash with an electrical circuit, but I feel that using a microcontroller like Arduino offers big benefits. Teach Kids Programming with These 7 iOS Apps Learning how to code is now more important than ever before. Technology is going to play a big role in our lives in upcoming decades. It is a very good idea to teach young kids foundations of good coding for the future. These 7 iPhone and iPad apps make it easier to teach young children some coding without boring them: Hopscotch: teaches kids to code with simple building blocks. Kids can create games, animations, and programs with this interactive app.

Here's How to Get a College-Level Computer Science Education for Free [AdSense-A] Yes, I’m a big fan of learning how to write code. I’m beginning to get back into it myself, slowly but surely. However, the problem at this point in my life is knowing exactly what I need to learn in today’s era of programming. I started my programming courses over 10 years ago, long before there was any such thing as a “smartphone,” let alone the iOS and Android platforms that have become such a huge part of modern programming. Blog » robot In conjunction with the release of the new version of the Arduino IDE and the Arduino Robot, we’re also putting out a TCT LCD screen. The screen was developed in conjunction with Complubot and the library relies on the Adafruit GFX and ST7735 libraries. The screen lets you do all sorts of fun things, like play games or lose the serial monitor to see the values from sensors. The Arduino specific library, named TFT, extends the Adafruit libraries to support more Processing-like methods.

Happy Hallow-uino! Celebrate October 31st Maker style Let’s face it, Halloween is arguably one of, if not, the best night to be a Maker — a celebration full of carving, candy consumption, and of course, DIY props and costumery. To pay homage to All Hallows’ Eve, we decided to compile a list of a few Atmel powered tricks, which surely deserve treats! Tired of having to greet those trick-or-treaters personally? Powered by an Arduino Duemilanove (ATmega168), this talking skeleton will take care of all that mumbo jumbo for you, with a variety of your own prerecorded phrases.

“Airduino” Scungy Anemometer Part 1: Detection and Amplification « Keith's Electronics Blog Necessity is said to be the mother of invention, and 90+°F daily temperatures with the air conditioner on the fritz made me feel pretty inventive. Our air conditioner was low on refrigerant and the blower fan motor may be running slower than spec and not moving enough air. Between the two problems, the expansion coil inside the furnace housing would ice up, over a few hours completely blocking the airflow and preventing any meaningful heat exchange. Interrupts, the easy way Many folks starting out in microcontrollers do not know what interrupts are, or are intimidated by them. Today I hope to shed some light on this easy to use, and useful function. There are two ways to detect if an event has happened, polling, and interrupts.

Next, I needed to feed the signal into a digital input on the Arduino. Old-school digital inputs don’t like having analog signals fed into them; but I knew from working with a PIC that some of the Arduino/ATmega pins would probably have Schmitt-trigger inputs, which have hysteresis. A digital input with hysteresis turns on when the analog input becomes higher than an upper threshold but doesn’t turn off until the signal falls below a lower threshold.

ABC - Arduino Basic Connections - PighiXXX ABC – Arduino Basic Connections Just about everything you every wanted to know about how interface your Arduino to a wide selection of input and output devices! All cards are now divided in sets (3 cards each). Windmeter / Anemometer by Infidigm Overview The Windmeter is an anemometer designed to measure and record wind speed distribution from 0 to 17+ meters per second. It was designed for high reliability, ease of construction, and for a wide environmental range. Data is logged over a period of 30.46 days (1/12 of a year), and then saved for 11 months. The data can be retrieved with a laptop computer any time within the 12 months of logging. The Windmeter is self-powered by a solar pannel and battery.

Getting started with Arduino! – Chapter Zero Hello world! Updated 24/11/2012 Please join with us as we learn about electronics and the Arduino! Together through this series of tutorials I would like to share with you a journey of learning, exploration and fun with the Arduino system, and make some enjoyable, useful, interesting, useless and practical things. These posts will be published on a regular basis, on top of the other non-micro controller posts.
