Fritzing is an open-source hardware initiative that makes electronics accessible as a creative material for anyone. We offer a software tool, a community website and services in the spirit of Processing and Arduino, fostering a creative ecosystem that allows users to document their prototypes, share them with others, teach electronics in a classroom, and layout and manufacture professional pcbs. Download and Start Download our latest version 0.8.7b released on Jan. 24, 2014 and start right away. Get a Kit Just got into interactive electronics and still need the basic tools?

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] 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. 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.

GamePack Were you ever the kind of person to hack up your own Playstation controllers and hook it up to something else? Well, those shards of plastic can be mighty dangerous, so I’ve done it for you. And hey, with the GamePack you’ll even have something you can hook it up to. The GamePack comes with an Arduino, MeCap Backpack, TouchShield Stealth or Slide, ExtenderShield and an InputShield- everything you need to create your own open source, portable gaming device. RPi.GPIO 0.4.1a A module to control Raspberry Pi GPIO channels This package provides a class to control the GPIO on a Raspberry Pi. Note that this module is unsuitable for real-time or timing critical applications. This is because you can not predict when Python will be busy garbage collecting. It also runs under the Linux kernel which is not suitable for real time applications - it is multitasking O/S and another process may be given priority over the CPU, causing jitter in your program.

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.

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. xoscillo - A software oscilloscope that acquires data using an arduino or a parallax (more platforms to come). About This is a multiplatform software oscilloscope and logical analyzer. It supports arduino(with custom firmware) and a Parallax USB oscilloscope. More platforms to come.

RPiconfig As the Raspberry Pi doesn't have a conventional BIOS, the various system configuration parameters that would normally be kept and set using the BIOS are now stored in a text file named "config.txt". The Raspberry Pi config.txt file is read by the GPU before the ARM core is initialized. This file is an optional file on the boot partition. 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.
