Build An Arduino-Powered Music Player That Automatically Plays Everyone’s Favourite Songs
Ronald Bynoe used to run a family restaurant in Portland, Oregon. Every hour, he would check the temperature of each place the kitchen stored food - including walk-in refrigerators, reach-in refrigerators, and soup kettles - and record it in a paper notebook.

Read our practical starter guide to the most popular Arduino kits here: http://www.tested.com/tech/robots/456466-know-your-arduino-guide-most-common-boards/ Will and Norm sit down to chat about Arduino microcontrollers and give an overview about how they work, what you can do with them, and how the varying models differ from each other. No scary programming involved!
Arduino is a great hardware platform for anyone interested in building almost any sort of homebrew electronics project. But the huge selection of Arduino boards can make it hard for a beginner to get started. To get you started, let's go over the most common Arduino boards, and explain how to find one that will suit your project.
You know those paintings that show up in nearly every episode of Scooby Doo that follow the gang with suspiciously active eyes as they pass by? How would you like to create your own animatronic eyes and be basically the best neighbor on the block this October?
If you have an old rice cooker, grab your soldering iron: now's your chance to try the cooking sous vide, a cooking method we love. With a little effort, some supplies, and an Arduino at its heart, that rice cooker will become a pretty powerful water oven, capable of precisely controlling its own temperature.
In last week's Hacker Challenge, we asked you to share your best DIY parenting hack. We received some great entries, but the winning hack shows us how to secure your drawer full of goodies using an Arduino and RFID. Check out the description of the winning entry below and read about some of our other favorite entries.
DIY micro-robotics is having a moment. The latest project to take the crowdfunding route to build out a platform for playing around with robotics is called BrickPi. As its name suggests, BrickPi is a mash-up of the Raspberry Pi microcomputer, co-opted to act as the brains of the robot, plus LEGO M..
If you or your family are looking to learn a little more about programming robots and how they work, you might be interested in a new mini robot that has been created called the MOwayduino. The MOwayduino is a programmable Arduino-based robot toy designed to provide a learning and playing robotic environment, that links to companion applications and software.
Some students at the LeCroy Career Technical Center have created an automated lawn mower for a national robotics competition. I say they just didn't want to mow the lawn anymore. But no matter the reason, they have made a pretty cool lawnmower. Having it do all of the work is a nice bonus though.
Voici une lampe dont les différents modes lumineux peuvent être sélectionnés uniquement en jouant des notes ! Une application pour android et ordinateur permet de choisir un mode parmi plusieurs catégories : lumière synchronisée avec la musique stroboscope lumières d'ambiance (cheminée, ambilight et horloge qui donne l'heure en fonction de la couleur).
Gilad vient de réaliser une sorte d' écran d'ambiance basse résolution qui permet d'afficher un nuage de particules lumineuses en mouvement . Cette magnifique réalisation nous montre que l'on peut faire des choses vraiment intéressantes avec pas grand chose. En effet, niveau électronique, on retrouve seulement une carte Arduino, une et un microphone.
Le dernier né de la marque Arduino débarque et s'appelle le Robot Arduino. Il a été présenté lors du festival Maker Faire qui a eu lieu ce week-end en Californie. Ce nouveau produit va bien au-delà des versions précédemment proposées par ce constructeur.
The world is going nuts over the Raspberry Pi single-board computer (SBC) for being a whole system under $50. In reality, though, the Pi isn't actually the cheapest computing device available.
Our APC weather station using an Arduino Uno R3-compatible board. Project-specific parts You'll need the standard parts (Arduino board, breadboard, wires, pliers and so on), along with these extras: DHT11 temperature/humidity sensor 7 x 330-ohm/0.5W metal film resistors 3 x 4.7k-ohm/0.5W metal film resistors 2 x BC337 NPN transistors 2 x LTS543R or FND500 common cathode seven-segment displays They shouldn't cost you more than $15 all up and you can get everything bar the DHT11 from Jaycar Electronics.
Don't worry, we won't post anything.
