Arduino TXT messages you when the headlines change…

Clete writes

My latest Arduino project is a little bit more complicated than my last. This new project will check the main headline on Drudge Report and it will then display it on the LCD screen of the Arduino. After that, it checks to see if the headline has changed since the last time it checked. If it is, it plays a song on a speaker on the Arduino and sends an email (or text message) notifying me of the change.

Code on git!

  1. Ewww… drudge report.

  2. @Brendan – code is on git, it can be any site…

  3. Looks like an interesting project. I think the demo was good too, but it would have been better with a less controversial sample site. It’s a distraction from an otherwise thorough and excellent project post.

    (Especially considering the crass headline at the time.)

  4. I think the fault is with the reader if they can’t get too dristracted becaues this cool project happened to link to a site the readr doesn’t agree with. The creator made the project for himself, not you :).
