Proximity sensing mouse wheel scroller using Arduino

List of tools: 1. Exacto 2. Arduino Nano / USB chord (Mini-B) 3. Dremel / Drill 4. Paper & Pencil 5. Sharp IR Sensor (2Y0A21 F) 6. Hot glue gun 7. Solder gun / Solder 8. A small mirror Ok so you might ask, why the heck are you doing this to a trackball?! aren't those for people from the 80s?? the one with keytars?? My response is two fold. No. 1 I have a keytar and they are MAGICAL. 2. I hated trackball ...

[Arduino] Linefollower with photoresistors

I built a linefollower robot that could be used in many different ways, and I summed up my project in some steps. To begin with, all you need is the following parts: Step 1: Robot frame Parts List: -Robot frame -Two wheels -Two DC motors How to: I used an old robot frame with two wheels commanded by two DC motors, but you can use an equivalent solution as well. Step 2: Sensor ir + photoresistor Parts List: ...

Urban Sensing Networks using Arduino

Often government data sets available to us online are taken from major nearby metropolitan areas or infrastructural centers. With an easy to follow introduction to new softwares and technologies the "urban sensor kit" allows anyone to obtain location specific information and share that information with a growing community of designers, researchers, and many others. This urban sensor kit is designed to creat ...

DIY Parking Sonsor using Arduino

The last time I was home visiting my parents I noticed bumper imprints caused by my mother suburban on the stairs leading up from the garage. Their garage it turns out is just barely long enough to fit their gigantic vehicles. So I decided it would be nice to have some visual cue for parking. Out came the arduino and a sonar range finder from Radio Shack and the result was this tutorial. Hot glue the arduin ...

Just Veggin with an Arduino Beetbox

Bring Touch Control to the Arduino. Use interesting touch sensors like Carrots or Beets to make a "Beetbox". In this instructable you will learn: * How to use the Cap Sense library to make Arduino responsive to touch * How adding a Wave Shield (and some root vegetables), you can make a "Beetbox" Step 1: You Will Need For the Touch Sensor part you will need: * Arduino UNO * A 4.7M Ohm resistor  (or a value s ...

Magic Light Capacitance Sensor using an Arduino

This was my very first arduino project.  Its great for beginners. Fade the color or the lights my moving your hands near it.  It fades from a pretty purple blue to a firey red-orange. Its was SUPER easy to build, not to hard to write the code, and its really impresses people!  I gave it to my mother for christmas, and it was a big hit. Watch the video to see it in action! I apologize for the poor quality, I ...

Use your android phone sensors on the arduino

Hello, this is my very first step-by-step instructable, and today, we're going to learn how the sensors in your android smartphone can communicate with your arduino. In modern smartphones, there are a lot of useful sensors for an ingenious arduino project. I have a motorola DEFY, for example and it has (at least) 6 sensors : - light sensor - proximity sensor - aGPS (assisted gps) - compass/magnetometer - ac ...

Control Fluorescent Lights with a Laser Pointer and an Arduino

A few members of the Alpha One Labs Hackerspace do not like the harsh light given out by fluorescent fixtures.  They wanted a way to be able to easily control the individual fixtures, perhaps with a laser pointer? I got right on it.  I dug out a pile of solid state relays and brought them to the Lab.  I bought an Arduino Duemilenova and demonstrated the use of the LED Blink example sketch to actually blink ...

Pee to Check-In to Foursquare – Mark Your Territory using Arduino

In case you are unfamiliar with the most amazing new way to physically "check in" to foursquare here is a video that will explain it all: Mark Your Territory is a fully open-source system but because it interacts with the physical world as well as the digital one, some construction is necessary beyond just simply downloading the app to your phone. The main project site is here: http://www.markyourterritory. ...
