Drive a webpage in real-time using Arduino, SensorMonkey and Processing.js Remote visualization of real-time sensor data. This tutorial describes in detail how to use the free SensorMonkey service to push real-time sensor data from an Arduino to a webpage for visualization using Processing.js. No server-side coding or Ethernet shield is required.

Secret-Knock Gumball Machine One of the best things about exhibiting at Maker Faire is giving attendees a challenge. For the 2010 Maker Faire Bay Area, I decided to combine a past project of mine, a door lock that opens only when you give a secret knock, with a standard crowd pleaser: candy. The result was this Secret-Knock Gumball Machine, which tempted and tested the crowds at Maker Faire to guess the right rhythm and receive a treat. Since the knock was not terribly secret (I happily handed out hints), it distributed hundreds of gumballs over the event’s two days. The “secret” knock defaults to the famous “Shave and a Haircut” rhythm, but you can program custom knocks by simply pressing a button and knocking a new pattern. The machine only listens for the rhythm, not the tempo, so the correct knock will dispense a treat whether you perform it fast or slow.

Smartenit - Solutions There is nothing as tasty as homemade raspberry pie in the summer, and the ice cream on top makes it even more delicious, especially when it's free. The Smartenit ZBPServer software is the ice cream that turns your Rpi into a "HomAidPi", full-fledged automation monster gateway that manages large home / building automation networks based on ZigBee, INSTEON and X10 protocols. Choose one of several USB automation interfaces available from Smartenit (USB-CID, ZBPLM, and EZIComm) and access a large ecosystem of automation devices that includes lighting, HVAC, irrigation, appliance control, energy management, water management, etc. Check out our "How To" section below to see how to load the Smartenit software onto your Rpi and cook up something special.

Top 10 Arduino Projects Below are some videos/links/descriptions to the Arduino projects that have really impressed me, the idea is that I’ll try them myself when I secure the correct components: This video inspired my current project, pulling the GPS data off an inexpensive safety camera alerter from Maplin, and storing it to SD Card. Then taking the idea further, using the (quite expensive ) GPRS module and the following code, send the GPS data by SMS to allow ‘live’ tracking of a car. I like this video because it give lots of good tips about laying out your prototype board. Tamiya Robot Kits Our Tamiya robot kits are perfect for teachers and parents looking to teach kids the fundamentals of robotics. These Tamiya models are not only educational, but simple to put together and fun to operate. If you're looking for a mobile robot platform that you can program and customize, visit our Programmable Robots category.

Charlieplexing LEDs with an AVR ATmega328 (or Arduino) Charlieplexing is an ingenius method for controlling many LEDs without using many microcontroller pins. You can turn on or off one LED at a time. To light more than one LED at a time, you can scan the LEDs by turning a sequence of them on and off really fast. The number of LEDs you can control is determined by this formula: N pins * (N pins – 1). 1. The way of the program — How to Think Like a Computer Scientist: Learning with Python 2nd Edition documentation The goal of this book is to teach you to think like a computer scientist. This way of thinking combines some of the best features of mathematics, engineering, and natural science. Like mathematicians, computer scientists use formal languages to denote ideas (specifically computations). Like engineers, they design things, assembling components into systems and evaluating tradeoffs among alternatives.

Top 10 DIY Arduino Projects and HOW-TO Tutorials! Arduino has been widely popular among hackers and DIY-addicts out there for modding/hacking things. For those of you just entering the Arduino world, here’s a bunch of great Arduino tutorials/projects that can help you jump-start your next project. 1) Did you know that you can program/flash your Arduino wirelessly? For those of you who are going to be making devices where the Arduino is hidden from easy access, read up on how you can program your Arduino wirelessly using Xigbee modules over at Lady Ada’s site. 2) Arduinome is a project the Monome for audio sequencers.

Snap Circuits Jr. 100-in-1 SC-100 Snap Circuits Jr. 100-in-1 includes over 30 plastic parts and over 100 sample projects. The snap-together electronic blocks are mounted on plastic pieces that can be used again and again to form many exciting and educational circuits. Winner of the Dr. Toy 100 Best Children’s Products award, the Snap Circuits educational kits by Elenco are a great way to learn about electronic circuits.

PIR Motion Sensor PIR sensors allow you to sense motion, almost always used to detect whether a human has moved in or out of the sensors range. They are small, inexpensive, low-power, easy to use and don't wear out. For that reason they are commonly found in appliances and gadgets used in homes or businesses. They are often referred to as PIR, "Passive Infrared", "Pyroelectric", or "IR motion" sensors. PIRs are basically made of a pyroelectric sensor (which you can see above as the round metal can with a rectangular crystal in the center), which can detect levels of infrared radiation.

RGB Liquid Crystal Display Tutorial Step #2: PrevNext Now we will prepare everything to start connecting to the Arduino. Insert the display into the breadboard with the pot next to it. Then connect 5V and GND to the breadboard rails as I have done.
