A fun project kit for learning hobby electronics. This kit (amazon link) (ICStation) is suitable for almost any age hobbyist but if younger than 12 it would be wise if someone older and with a little more experienced helped. On the big track. Really enjoyed putting this little line following robot car kit together. Instructions […]
Hello everyone from Day 1 of Hurricane Harvey here in Austin Texas. Wild windy and wet. Just want to mention plans are being made to cover a monitor repair video and a How-To on using the 74HC595 shift register. I love this chip! Be well!
Using a pushbutton that completes the circuit only while being pressed can turn an LED on while the button is being held down. But what if you wanted to press it once and have the LED light up and then press it again and turn off the LED? Well you can do this. It is done with […]
This eBook on Arduino Robotics is really worth your time to look over as it deals with all sorts of fun projects like a wall following robot, segway type robots (list below) and just so much more. If you like it I hope you track down a real copy that you can hold in your […]
Phase One of the Volthaus Labs 433MHz remote weather station project is completed. The data currently being sent to the RX (receiver) is Temperature and Humidity. The 1602 LCD display is showing the temperature data in both Fahrenheit and Celsius. While you’re reading this I have moved on to Phase Two which includes adding the […]
My second Instructable on remote control using Arduino, Bluetooth, and a relay. The first Instructable in this series was designed using the serial communication software PuTTY for turning off and on the remote device from your computer. This one will be quite similar in the setup of the project but we will be using the […]
Using remote control for projects is always fun and gives your project that pro touch. One area of much debate is antenna design and use. I found this article that really does a great job of explaining the design and use of antennas with 433MHz modules. I found this at HOPERF. They make a wide […]
This is the first installment of what I hope will be a complete and easy to understand series of tutorials on remote control using Arduino, Bluetooth, and free software that allows you to control just about any electrical device from an LED all the way to 110 volt AC lamps, fans, etc. Check it out […]
