20 Unbelievable Arduino Projects
To make all of these Instructables, download this collection of How To’s as an ebook. Download » Here are twenty amazing Arduino projects that you almost wouldn't believe, if not for that they are the real deal. These authors have turned their wildest dreams into reality with the power of Arduino, an easy-to-use microcontroller development board. It is no wonder that Arduino literally translates to "Strong friend (masculine)" in Italian. Anything is possible with the mighty power of Arduino.

20 Projects To Celebrate Arduino Day In the spirit and celebration of Arduino Day, we’ve compiled a list of some great past projects for your enjoyment. While the Arduino UNO and older Duemilanove are two of the most common Arduino boards, the MEGA and the Yún should not be avoided. The MEGA is much like the UNO, however, it has an expanded number of input and output pins, and is often used to control 3D printers. The Yún is ideal for project where onboard wifi connectivity is a must. Don’t forget that shields –boards that plug directly into the Arduino’s header pins– are a fantastic, rapid way to add functionality to a project. Arduino - Control 220V Lamps from Anywhere in the World Hi, If you’re following my email/facebook updates you know I promised more tutorials related to Home Automation. In this tutorial we’re going to control 2 lamps with an Arduino and an Ethernet Shield. If you have an Internet connection you can control those lamps from anywhere in the world. First make sure you watch my youtube video above, where I explain the whole process in more detail. Parts Required

I find this almost therapeutic to watch, perhaps it's a little OCPD in me but seeing an Arduino UnoArduino Uno control a machine which will sort out your sweeties by colour is great. This little video does well to demonstrate it working with the 3D printed parts, an RGB and an infra-red sensor doing the work in tune with the motors. Practical wise it's a little slow and you would be forgiven for asking "why would I do this?"

2-Wheel Arduino Self-Balancing Robot Kit 3D Printing, Arduino, Robotics Code for Project: Click to Download Demonstration Video: Python Multithreaded Programming Running several threads is similar to running several different programs concurrently, but with the following benefits − Multiple threads within a process share the same data space with the main thread and can therefore share information or communicate with each other more easily than if they were separate processes.Threads sometimes called light-weight processes and they do not require much memory overhead; they care cheaper than processes. A thread has a beginning, an execution sequence, and a conclusion. It has an instruction pointer that keeps track of where within its context it is currently running. It can be pre-empted (interrupted)It can temporarily be put on hold (also known as sleeping) while other threads are running - this is called yielding.

10 Great Arduino Projects for Beginners Advertisement Completing an Arduino project gives you a sense of satisfaction like no other. The problem is, most beginners aren’t sure where to start, and without previous Maker experience, or some sort of electronics background, even beginner’s projects can seem rather… well, daunting. Today we’re going to feature 10 simple projects that even the most novice of Arduino DIY’ers can build without the need for expensive add-ons, or hard-to-find parts. To get started, all you’ll need are the items that come in most Arduino starter kits, such as: An ArduinoJumper wiresResistorsBreadboardLEDsButtons

IoT Remote Configuration w/ Arduino & Raspberry Pi - PubNub We have connected homes, connected cars, connected watches, and connected clothes, so we need control. Remote configuration is paramount when it comes to connecting IoT devices. How can we control our garage doors, lights, and toasters from outside the home, anywhere on Earth?

If you’re just hearing about it now, you’re in for some fun! What is Arduino: Everything You Need to Know (In Video) What is Arduino: Everything You Need to Know (In Video) What is an Arduino and why should you care? [ARDUINO + RASPBERRY PI] Switching light with NRF24l01+ [Raspberry Pi – Arduino ]Lamp Switch[/caption] A month ago we planned to manage our Arduino irrigator (aka Irrigatorino) through the NRF24l01+ wireless module. Our little project has been subjected to a little change, since we decided to make our life easier (buahahah…) and remote control a light over a browser (yes, mobile too). Surprisingly, a lot of people liked the little demo I’ve made with some raw code and asked for a tutorial, so here we are: Ladies and (more probably) Gentleman, I’m glad to present you the lamp driven by a browser switch! Nothing new actually, but still exciting!
