Amarino - "Android meets Arduino" - Home

Idea Normally smartphone events are tightly coupled to your phone device itself. When your cell phone is ringing, your phone speaker plays a ringtone. When you get a new text message, your phone displays it on its screen. Wouldn't it be thrilling to make thoses phone events visible somewhere else, on your wearable, in your living room, on your robot, in your office or where ever you want it to occur? Or would you like to use your smartphone sensors, like the accelerometer, light sensor, compass or your touchscreen to control other devices?

About We are a community of makers, artists, designers, and builders focused on simplifying the world of electronics DIY by modularizing information. Instead of showcasing users’ projects, we offer bite-size, easy-to-follow articles that help you hit the ground running. We understand that, for many, the idea is more important than the method of accomplishing it. Our hope is that by offering working code and wiring examples for almost anything you would want to make, we can create building blocks that will enable people to stop searching for help, and start getting their idea made.

BoardBT (redirected from Main.ArduinoBoardBluetooth) This page is temporarily OFFLINE Overview Make: Arduino Arduino is a simple microcontroller board and open source development environment that allows you to make computers that drive both functional and creative projects alike. A popular platform for DIY projects, an Arduino microcontroller is the foundation of literally thousands of projects created by Makers worldwide! Check out our selection of Arduino microcontrollers and Arduino compatible products. Whether you are looking for the latest Arduino boards or accessories, Maker Shed has you covered.

arduino meets processing - PUSHBUTTON The Arduino meets Processing project intends to make it as easy as possible for anyone to explore the world of physical computing. All you need is an Arduino board as well as the Arduino and Processing software, which you can download on their project websites. On this website we explain how to: set up electronic circuits with various kinds of sensors, control and measure the sensors with the Arduino board, send the data to the computer, and use the received values to generate computer graphics with Processing. Third Hand++: A multi-use helping hand for electronics and other delicate work. In the past I've used the third hands/helping hands available at chain electronics shops and have been frustrated with their usability. I could never get the clips exactly where I wanted them or it took more time than it really should to get setup right. I also wanted the ability to hold small circuit boards and alligator clips just don't do a very good job. I was familiar with the adjustable coolant hose systems used to spray coolant at cutting tools in the machining industry and thought that would be a great place to start. I ordered various nozzles and hose segments from my favorite online machine tool supply company and started experimenting. This is what I came up with.

Spooky Projects – Introduction to Microcontrollers with Arduino Spooky Projects is a set of four 3-hour classes in October 2006 hosted by Machine Project and taught by Tod E. Kurt. It is an introduction to microcontroller programming and interfacing with the real world using the Arduino physical computing platform. In the class, participants are shown and experiment with the Arduino’s capabilities and learn the basics of common microcontroller interfacing, such as: digital output to control lights and LEDs, digital input to read switches and buttons, analog output to control motor position or LED brightness, and analog input to read sensor inputs. From these tools all sorts of interesting projects can be created. In the class, a few simple project sketches are covered using the provided parts kit, under the theme of spooky animatronics for Halloween.

In this tutorial, I’ll show you a simple way to send text messages with your Arduino for around $20. If you want to send a text message from your Arduino, you’ve got basically three options: Use a GSM shieldUse an ethernet shield to send emails to a wireless carrier’s email-to-SMS gatewayPlug your Arduino into a computer via USB and have a script running on your computer that uses the aforementioned email-to-SMS gateway method.

Arduino The first Arduino was introduced in 2005. The project leaders sought to provide an inexpensive and easy way for hobbyists, students, and professionals to create devices that interact with their environment using sensors and actuators. Common examples for beginner hobbyists include simple robots, thermostats and motion detectors. Arduino boards may be purchased preassembled, or as do-it-yourself kits. The hardware design information is available for those who would like to assemble an Arduino by hand. Adafruit Industries estimated in mid-2011 that over 300,000 official Arduinos had been commercially produced,[3] and in 2013 that 700,000 official boards were in users' hands.[4] How to Make a Vibration Detector/Meter Circuit Whether it's truck throttling over the highway, or an airplane roaring about the sky, or whether it's a knock on the door or a purring of the cat or simply your heartbeats, the vibration level detector circuit explained here will sense them all and convert into beautiful sequencing LED light bar graph indications. The number of LEDs lit in the bar graph at any particular instant indicates the magnitude of the vibration force at that particular instant.Vibration is nothing but the ruffling of the air due a corresponding force generated from an external medium. For example when we speak, our vocal chords vibrate and generate the corresponding patterns of disturbance in the surrounding air. When these air vibrations enter our ear, our eardrum also vibrate at the same frequency making it audible to our respective sensory organs. Stronger vibrations make stronger impact on our senses and therefore we hear them louder in comparison to other sound levels.

Automated Control of an Android Device with Python - Dustin Ingram Intro As mentioned in my previous article, Device Screenshots with the Android Debug Bridge, I’m currently working on an application which required the ability to get a live screenshot of my physical Android device. The second component to that problem, however, involved processing that image, and then automating a UI/Application response exactly like an actual user is (read: automatically touch the screen).
