Last update, 07/30/2015. 16x32 RGB LED matrix panel ID: 420 - $79.95 : Adafruit Industries Bring a little bit of Times Square into your home with this 16 x 32 RGB LED matrix panel. These panels are normally used to make video walls, here in New York we see them on the sides of busses and bus stops, to display animations or short video clips. We thought they looked really cool so we picked up a few boxes of them from a factory. They have 512 bright RGB LEDs arranged in a 16x32 grid on the front. Bluetooth \ Wiring By Mitchell Page Mpag5967 [at] mail.usyd.edu.au Key Centre of Design Computing and Cognition, University of Sydney , Australia Normally you would use a serial USB cable connected from your computer to your Wiring board for receiving data sent from a computer running processing to your board. This tutorial demonstrates how to execute this same process, but wirelessly using Bluetooth. We will test this by being able to turn an LED on/off wirelessly.
First self-powered device with wireless data transmission Scientists are reporting development of the first self-powered nano-device that can transmit data wirelessly over long distances. In a study in ACS's journal Nano Letters, they say it proves the feasibility of a futuristic genre of tiny implantable medical sensors, airborne and stationary surveillance cameras and sensors, wearable personal electronics, and other devices that operate independently without batteries on energy collected from the environment. Zhong Lin Wang and colleagues explain that advances in electronics have opened the door to developing tiny devices that operate battery-free on minute amounts of electricity that can be harvested from the pulse of a blood vessel, a gentle breeze, or the motions of a person walking. "It is entirely possible to drive the devices by scavenging energy from sources in the environment such as gentle airflow, vibration, sonic wave, solar, chemical, and/or thermal energy," the scientists explain.
Online : LED cluster for Arduino testing My friend Usman and I are collaborating long-distance on an Arduino project. He’s a software guy (by which I mean he’s a guy actually made of software. OK, not really, but almost) and doesn’t have time right now to get up to speed on hardware. Ani - An animation library for Processing An animation library by Benedikt Groß for the programming environment Processing. Last update, 2013/02/28. Ani 2.5 is a lightweight library for creating animations and transitions. Easily spoken Ani helps you to move things around on the screen or a bit more abstract, to animate any numeric variable. Most of the time a single line of code like the following one is enough:
Bionic Arduino – Introduction to Microcontrollers with Arduino Bionic Arduino is a set of four 3-hour classes in November 2007 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. It focuses on building new physical senses and making motion with the building blocks of robotics, using Arduino as a platform.

View topic - LiquidTWI: High-performance LCD library for I2C Backpack Module I like fast things. And I like clean code. Often, the two go hand-in-hand ;) After looking through the modified LiquidCrystal library for use with the i2c backpack and darn near crying when I saw all the faux digitalRead() and pinMode() being done on each transfer, I was bound and determined to never let that happen to another friendly Arduino user again. I first made a proof of concept modification to the library to "burst" all the "LiquidCrystal::send" bits instead of digitalWrite()'ing them out one at a time (read I2C, modify, write... read, modify, write... read, modify, write... read, modify, write - over 16 I2C commands for each single character).
A Multi-Protocol Infrared Remote Library for the Arduino Do you want to control your Arduino with an IR remote? Do you want to use your Arduino to control your stereo or other devices? This IR remote library lets you both send and receive IR remote codes in multiple protocols. It supports NEC, Sony SIRC, Philips RC5, Philips RC6, and raw protocols. If you want additional protocols, they are straightforward to add. The library can even be used to record codes from your remote and re-transmit them, as a minimal universal remote. InstantSOUP / Physical Computing » Microcontroller Instant Soup support the following platforms: Wiring Wiring is a programming environment and electronics i/o board for exploring the electronic arts, tangible media, teaching and learning computer programming and prototyping with electronics. It illustrates the concept of programming with electronics and the physical realm of hardware control which are necessary to explore physical interaction design and tangible media aspects. Wiring is an open project initiated by Hernando BarragÃ¡n (University of Los Andes | Architecture and Design School). Wiring started at the Interaction Design Institute Ivrea and it is currently developed at the University of Los Andes.
This is Wiring (and Arduino) The Wiring i/o board is a small, cheap standalone computer with many connection capabilities. It can be easily programmed in a variant of the Processing language, with a similar programming environment. The board can control all kinds of sensors and actuators.
