Rewind: 35 absurdly awesome Arduino projects from 2015 Arduin-OMG! This year was great! Here are 35 Maker marvels with the best or craziest (or maybe both) Arduino-powered projects that we stumbled upon in 2015. RFduino much more than just a tiny computer with Bluetooth 4.0 - EP&Dee With the RFduino, the Arduino open-source platform is now able to offer a wireless alternative. The wireless-enabled microcontroller is scarcely the size of a fingertip and communicates with smartphones, tablets and laptops which have a Bluetooth SMART READY logo. Using RFduino, developers are able to build a system in just a few minutes which transfers data from sensors to a laptop or other Bluetooth-enabled devices. They can also use a smartphone to control the peripherals connected to the RFduino. Rutronik also offers identical modules and chips for mass production, depending on project requirements.

DIY Arduino PIR Motion Sensor Lighting & Security From the minds at We wanted to save energy, and create convenience, by adding motion sensors to our lighting circuits. Maybe you want some notification of an intruder. Both can be done with a PIR Motion sensor. Arduino and monochrome LCDs Please note that the tutorials are not currently compatible with Arduino IDE v1.0. Please continue to use v22 or v23 until further notice. This is chapter twenty-four of a series originally titled “Getting Started/Moving Forward with Arduino!” by John Boxall – A tutorial on the Arduino universe. The first chapter is here, the complete series is detailed here.
Vector Scratch Blocks In September 2014 Computing will be a new curriculum subject and I wanted to make some resources that could be used to support Scratch After seeing these hands-on blocks I thought it would be great if anyone could make their own. So I set about creating some vector versions of the standard Scratch blocks that could be scaled to any size required. As I created them I also thought how useful it would be if Teachers could use them in other ways, for example, displays, PowerPoints and on Interactive Whiteboards. Arduino Mini CNC Plotter Machine from dvd drives In this project I will show you how to easily build your own low-cost Arduino Mini CNC Plotter! This project is an update from my previous cnc, with better construction and with more accuracy. I decided to make this detailed guide to help you make it on a few easy steps. Small description: For the X and Y axes we will use two stepper motors and rails from dvd/cd drives and for the Z axis we will use a small servo motor that moves the pen up and down.
RFduino by RFDigital Cortex™ ARM® M0256kB Flash2, 4 GHz TransceiverBluetooth 4.0 Low Energy RUTRONIK offers RFduino system exclusively in Europe to B2B customers. Electronics : Microprocessors : Arduino Uno output to VGA monitor This post shows how you can output VGA signals to a monitor, turning your Uno (or similar) processor into a "video card". Example: The only extra hardware used here was 5 resistors, and a DB15 socket to plug the monitor cable into: Watch live demo: VGA Timing Scan 3D Arduino Hey - have a look at my new project HERE In this project I built a 3D Scanner, that enables generating 3D models of physical objects. The files can later be viewed in 3D software (GLC Player, Sketchup, Rhino, or sites such as and even manipulated into .STL file and 3D printed. The software for this project is completely free, I am using Autodesk's 123D catch, Link:123D catch The 123D Catch is a great software, it requires taking many photos of an object all around it, and uploading it into the software, and it returns a 3D file.
