DIY project for monitoring water flow with Arduino via Instructables
Thomas Amberg got inspired after participating in a *Water Hackathon, in Switzerland, this past June. He posted his DIY project for monitoring water flow on Instructables. He used an Arduino microprocessor with LED lights to monitor the flow of water into his bathroom tub.
The 2 day workshop was run to promote Open Source Technologies for Rivers, Oceans and Lakes.
* “Through discussion and hands-on hardware hacking, we expect open exchange on the implications and possibilities of sharing technology to approach environmental exploration and preservation.”
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
