Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — May 24th, 2022 Our reliance on electronic devices and appliances has never been higher, so when the power goes out, it can quickly become an unpleasant and inconvenient situation, especially for those who are unable to prepare in time. To help combat this problem, Roni Bandini has devised a device he calls “EdenOff,” which…… Continue reading This Arduino device can anticipate power outages with tinyML

ESsense turns an ordinary conductor into a contactless motion sensor

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — May 23rd, 2022 When imagining motion sensors, devices such as accelerometers, infrared detectors, and LiDAR units probably come to mind. But due to the complexity and oftentimes high costs of these parts, researchers Joseph Liew and Keng Wei Ng from the National University of Singapore wanted to create a lower-cost and easier-to-assemble…… Continue reading ESsense turns an ordinary conductor into a contactless motion sensor

Meander Coil++ enables safe, wireless power transmission

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — May 19th, 2022 Modern wearable devices have allowed for a wide array of smart technologies to become mobile, including health tracking, receiving notifications, and much more. But due to their small battery size, they often run out of charge within a day or two, thus requiring frequent charging. This problem is what…… Continue reading Meander Coil++ enables safe, wireless power transmission

FingerX is a gadget that lets people feel the shapes of VR objects physically

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — May 18th, 2022 One of virtual reality’s largest unsolved challenges is allowing players to interact with a virtual environment beyond just video and audio. This is why a team of researchers from National Chengchi University in Taiwan came up with the FingerX project as a way to get haptic feedback when touching objects in…… Continue reading FingerX is a gadget that lets people feel the shapes of VR objects physically

This robotic system automatically scans film slides on its own

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — May 18th, 2022 Before the advent of digital cameras, people used film to capture their most cherished memories. And nowadays, there is a rush to convert them into a digital format before they inevitably degrade and become unrecognizable. Film slides in particular have a major drawback in that they are separate, individual…… Continue reading This robotic system automatically scans film slides on its own

Continuously measure wind speed and direction with this EMT conduit-mounted station

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — May 17th, 2022 It seems like DIY weather stations are everywhere, and while most can perform the basic functions of measuring temperature, humidity, and air pressure, the majority are still unable to determine wind speed and direction. In response, Austin Allen from Elation Sports Technologies LLC created his own system that uses an anemometer…… Continue reading Continuously measure wind speed and direction with this EMT conduit-mounted station

Introvention is a wearable device that can help diagnose movement disorders early

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — May 17th, 2022 Conditions such as Parkinson’s disease and essential tremors often present themselves as uncontrollable movements or spasms, especially near the hands. By recognizing when these troubling symptoms appear, earlier treatments can be provided and improve the prognosis for the patient compared to later detection. Nick Bild had the idea to create…… Continue reading Introvention is a wearable device that can help diagnose movement disorders early

Rack up the highest grocery bill possible in the Bonprix game

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — May 17th, 2022 It seems like everyone these days is trying to reduce their grocery bill as much as possible, but Niklas Roy and Kati Hyyppä’s interactive installation, Bonprix, turns the tables by making the goal to spend the most money on whatever items can be scanned within 90 seconds. Bonprix is meant to…… Continue reading Rack up the highest grocery bill possible in the Bonprix game

Motorize a manual wheelchair with this adaptable electronic system

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — May 15th, 2022 Motorized wheelchairs can be very expensive, and for those who are unable to afford them, getting around the house can become a challenge. This is what inspired Wesley Gardner from element14 Presents to design a series of wheelchair modifications that can improve a person’s mobility.  Gardner began by coming up with a few…… Continue reading Motorize a manual wheelchair with this adaptable electronic system

Automatically make masking tape labels with this Arduino-powered machine

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — May 12th, 2022 Masking tape makes for a great label as its weak adhesive does not tend to leave visible residue and names can be easily sketched onto its surface, albeit quite slowly. To expedite this process, Hackaday.io user michimartini decided to design and build a machine that writes labels automatically. The device is essentially…… Continue reading Automatically make masking tape labels with this Arduino-powered machine

This special front door controller has several ways to unlock it

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — May 11th, 2022 For YouTuber Jroobi, merely walking up to his front door, inserting a key into the lock and turning the handle was too simple, which led him come up with a very unique and high-tech design for a new type of lock. His idea was to combine several different kinds of verification/control…… Continue reading This special front door controller has several ways to unlock it
