Brenda is classic automata nightmare fuel

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — July 5th, 2022 Art is a strange thing. Sometimes its purpose is purely aesthetic. Sometimes it makes a statement. And sometimes it exists to disturb. Kinetic art is no different and some robots fall into this category. Graham Asker’s art elicits pondering on the relationship between humans and robots, as well as…… Continue reading Brenda is classic automata nightmare fuel

This device predicts when a refrigerator might fail using embedded ML

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — July 4th, 2022 The refrigerator is one of the centerpieces in a modern kitchen, and experiencing a loss in cooling can lead to hundreds or even thousands of dollars of spoiled goods. Perhaps even more importantly, a sudden loss of medications or vaccines that heavily rely on refrigeration can heave a big…… Continue reading This device predicts when a refrigerator might fail using embedded ML

This DIY basketball scoreboard looks and sounds like the real thing

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — July 3rd, 2022 Inspired by his time as a scorekeeper in elementary school, now-high schooler Collin Wentzien wanted to recreate this setup by building a DIY scoreboard several years ago. His idea involved making a bright display composed of several seven-segment displays that could all be controlled by an external device in order to set scores,…… Continue reading This DIY basketball scoreboard looks and sounds like the real thing

Arduin-Row uses tinyML to improve your rowing technique

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — July 2nd, 2022 Rowing machines make for excellent aerobic workouts, as they involve repeatedly pushing one’s legs against the base and pulling out the handle to achieve the fastest times. But because of the equipment’s nature, learning how to exercise correctly on one often requires a coach that can correct the user’s…… Continue reading Arduin-Row uses tinyML to improve your rowing technique

DIY diesel emissions monitor is a lesson in spectroscopy

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — June 30th, 2022 Some things, like voltage, are very easy to measure. Other things, like the chemical composition of a compound? Not so much. Emissions from internal combustion engines are one of those things that are hard to measure. But Janis Alnis needed a way to measure his diesel soot emissions so…… Continue reading DIY diesel emissions monitor is a lesson in spectroscopy

This large-format laser cutter was built from scratch for just $700

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — June 30th, 2022 When stuck between a cheaper yet small laser cutter and splurging on a much larger one, Owen Schafer decided instead to just build one himself. The project started with Schafer sourcing a 40W CO2 laser, which differs from a diode laser in that it uses gas heated with 16,000 volts to produce…… Continue reading This large-format laser cutter was built from scratch for just $700

Building a simple USB adapter for the Logitech Driving Force Shifter with Arduino

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — June 30th, 2022 Logitech’s Driving Force Shifter is a very common piece of kit for those who enjoy racing games, as it connects to a Logitech Racing Wheel and allows the player to control their car in a more realistic fashion. However, this accessory’s DB-9 connector must be connected to a proprietary…… Continue reading Building a simple USB adapter for the Logitech Driving Force Shifter with Arduino

eXaDrums is an open source, low-latency electronic drum system

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — June 29th, 2022 For apartment-dwelling drummers, electronic drums are really the only option. While cheap electronic drum sets are on the market, they aren’t much more than noise-making toys. High-end sets, on the other hand, cost thousands of dollars. To make high-end hardware and software accessible to DIYers, Jeremy Oden developed an…… Continue reading eXaDrums is an open source, low-latency electronic drum system

This project lets you experience life with a cybernetic tail

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — June 23rd, 2022 Modern humans have forgone their tails in favor of walking upright, and this fact left maker Pengfei Zhang wondering what it would be like to have such an appendage. From this idea, she along with Sarvenaz Sardari and Xi Peng created the Cyber Tail, which integrates embedded electronics into a…… Continue reading This project lets you experience life with a cybernetic tail

Monitoring IV fluid bag levels with the Arduino Portenta H7 and Vision Shield

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — June 22nd, 2022 When a patient is receiving intravenous (IV) fluids, it is vital that air is not introduced into the line, as its presence can create issues such as excessive pressure or even embolisms that can be life-threatening. Normally, the level of fluids remaining within the bag is periodically checked by…… Continue reading Monitoring IV fluid bag levels with the Arduino Portenta H7 and Vision Shield

This high-speed Arduino pen plotter creates drawings in mere minutes

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — June 21st, 2022 Pen plotting projects are everywhere nowadays, with the vast majority using a couple of stepper motors for moving the writing utensil and a servo to raise or lower it. But they are quite slow due to the lack of rigid assembly and because the servo motor takes around a…… Continue reading This high-speed Arduino pen plotter creates drawings in mere minutes
