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

Designing a DIY watch with a brass ‘cyberpunk-y’ aesthetic

Reading Time: 2 minutes Designing a DIY watch with a brass ‘cyberpunk-y’ aesthetic Arduino Team — June 20th, 2022 The cyberpunk aesthetic, like several other genres, often takes the form of heavy and metallic body modifications or devices that are meant to signify a more futuristic society. Inspired by the video game Deus Ex, Redditor Star_11 had the idea to create…… Continue reading Designing a DIY watch with a brass ‘cyberpunk-y’ aesthetic

Freddie points to the current temperature on the Mercury Thermometer

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — June 16th, 2022 Nearly everyone is familiar with the mercury thermometer and how it uses the expansion of the element to display ambient temperatures. But in Instructables member TurboSnail’s latest project, they attempted to turn this concept on its head by making a thermometer that uses the iconic Freddie Mercury to show the temperature without the…… Continue reading Freddie points to the current temperature on the Mercury Thermometer

Automated window system helps keep the greenhouse climate regulated

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — June 9th, 2022 Greenhouses are excellent ways to grow plants due to their compact nature and the fact that they can absorb and store the sun’s light as heat to keep their internal temperature higher than outside. But when it comes to adding ventilation for cooling things down, decreasing the humidity, or…… Continue reading Automated window system helps keep the greenhouse climate regulated

A real-world health bar for Old School RuneScape

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — June 3rd, 2022 For those of us of a certain age, RuneScape provides a deep sense of nostalgia. The original RuneScape MMORPG died off in popularity many years ago, but Old School RuneScape, which launched in 2013, recently gained traction once again. As with most MMORPGs, Old School RuneScape gives the player…… Continue reading A real-world health bar for Old School RuneScape

Sketch the current time with this Magna Doodle clock

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — May 31st, 2022 The Magna Doodle is a classic children’s toy that works by embedding a layer of iron shavings just below the surface of a canvas and then using a magnetic pen to pull them up, thus showing whatever lines might have been drawn. Steve Turner had the idea to automate…… Continue reading Sketch the current time with this Magna Doodle clock

Great Scott! Learn how to drive flux capacitor-style LEDs

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — April 14th, 2022 The flux capacitor is one of the most iconic movie props of all time. Part of that is due to its plot purpose in the Back to the Future franchise, but its fame is also because it looked so futuristic when the first movie hit theaters in 1985. LEDs…… Continue reading Great Scott! Learn how to drive flux capacitor-style LEDs

Reimagining the lamp with an intelligent, floating bulb

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — March 9th, 2022 The humble lamp can come in many different forms, but nearly all of them feature a singular bulb that is uninspired and only responds to a light switch or potentially an app. YouTuber Tom Ouwerkerk, on the other hand, has designed a creative light accessory that is entirely 3D-printed and includes…… Continue reading Reimagining the lamp with an intelligent, floating bulb

This 3D-printed, three-sided clock tells time with three hands

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — February 9th, 2022 Back in April 2021, Instructables user saulemmetquinn had the idea to build a fully 3D-printed clock that was based on the Triangulum constellation, which as the name implies, is a triangle. But it wouldn’t only tell the time using the typical set of hands and numbers, but also the current phase of the…… Continue reading This 3D-printed, three-sided clock tells time with three hands

Supplino is a variable benchtop power supply that you can build yourself

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — January 20th, 2022 Working with electronics requires access to stable power in a variety of voltages. Some components require 3.3V and others require 5V. Still others need 9V or 12V — there are many possibilities. You could keep a variety of wall warts on hand, but a variable benchtop power supply is…… Continue reading Supplino is a variable benchtop power supply that you can build yourself
