Featured Adafruit Community Project
There are people making amazing things around the world, are you one of them? Join the 56,938 strong! And check out scores of projects they shared this week after the jump!
Miguel Castillo shared: “Tutorial: on How to control your water consumption with an Arduino a RaspberryPI and a flowmeter. This easy tutorial (step by step to DIY) helps you to control the water used in your garden watering. To do this, we use Arduino and Raspberry Pi to get the best of both. All the source code is included.” (read more)
Miguel Castillo shared: “How to make an internet Stuffed Toy with Raspberry Pi and Carriots: A few months back we had a developer contest @Carriots to build an IOT Stuffed toy. As an example we build a Domokun that was able to:
- Talk (with Text To Speech)
- Download video from Dropbox and play it on a video screen (placed at the mouth of the Domokun)
Here is the tutorial to DIY (with all steps, source code and schemas). You can use this example to build a toy of the future for a kid of your family! The video was done by our team of engineers to promote the challenge. You can build all the components in Adafruit for less than 150$ Enjoy it!” (read more)
Paolo Galeone shared: “This is the alpha version of a 16 bit synthesizer that some day will be completed. It works with a PIC32 (on board PIC 32 Pinguino OTG, designed without pinguino language [the same of Arduino] but in C with the MIPS toolchain patched by pinguino team [pinguino.cc] to work with gcc interrupt attribute). It use the ADC module, and the timer1 that works with the secondary oscillator.” (read more)
Sven Haiges shared: “The 555 timer ic finally works. Second try, and i am a bit frustrated as all these cables and resistors are quite easybto get wrong. Little bang for the tons of cables. Doing this to get a more fundamental understanding of electronics. Is that worth it or should i just concentrate on Arduinos, Beaglebones, etc and do all logic in code?” (read more)
Heather Solvers shared: “Commissioned sculpture that has gone to live Australia. Mixed media, polymer clay, wire coiled into awesome limbs and varnish for protective shiny goodness. Final size 6″ inches in height.” (read more)
Martin Atkins shared: “Continuing my little notifier/clock project I posted about last week, today I made a cardboard prototype of the enclosure to check the dimensions. Eventually I plan to get this cut out of acrylic but I don’t have access to a laser cutter myself so I use the cutting service from +Pololu Robotics and Electronics . I’ve been bitten before by not prototyping my design before submitting it; in one project (the “Radiant Mural” I posted a video of some months ago) I accidentally lost a millimeter on a repeated part while making my design file and it added up to 24mm lost over the full width of the product, which required some hackery to work around once I got the parts…. My previous post showing my breadboard prototype is here.” (read more)
Jeff Karpinski shared: “#DEFCON IoT project hardware complete. Cramming Twitter calls, smooth LED scrolling, and WiFi all into an ATmega328 turned out to be decidedly non-trivial. I’ll publish the full set up post-defcon.” (read more)
Jari Komppa shared: “SoLoud, my free (zlib/libpng licensed) audio/sound effect playing library now includes a speech synth. That’s the biggest news, but I’ve also torn through my TODO list quite a bit. Still a lot to do, though.” (read more)
Gert Galjoen shared: “Extruder Optical Filament Control Retract Load Feed , Exercise. Setup for this try out: arduino nano 3 + finger mouse + SPI display “open jumper 12864″. The sensor has 1200 DPI (theoreticaly). For a distance of 10.00 mm I get a value somewhere around 220 steps….” (read more)
Mano Biletsky shared: “Finally got my code to work! And with bluetooth!!! It’s far from ready and as you can see in the video, there is a lot that needs to be calibrated. Half of the sensors isn’t even on there yet. Just trying to get a base code that works. I’ll go from there…” (read more)
Stephen Becker shared: “Boarduino, thermocouple amplifier, and seven segment display backpack from +Adafruit Industries . This is the beginnings of my beer fermentation temperature controller!” (read more)
