Community Corner – January 2, 2014: The Featured Projects from this Week


Featured Adafruit Google+ Community Project

(Note: Google+ login required.)

Eduardo Zola shared his awesome Electronic Air Freshener deodorizer project this week in our community! He uses coffee (what’s better than the smell of coffee?) but the options are open based on your olfactory preferences.

Fresh Air Exhaust with coffee powder or cinnamon…

You can choose your favorite essence, provided you use the powdered extract. The amount should not exceed two fingers of the measure.

Featured Community Project from the Adafruit Blog

Hiro Kobayashi/MakerBee shared a tutorial for setting up a Laundry Alarm with Text Messaging Alerts using Arduino. Here’s what Hiro had to say: “Hello. I did a fun and simple instructable on how to use an Arduino Yun and a dual-axis accelerometer to monitor your washer or dryer and send you an SMS text message when your laundry is done.”

Have you ever wished there was a better way to be notified when your laundry was done? Have you ever forgotten a load in the washer because you couldn’t hear the buzzer and your clothes became smelly and moldy from sitting there for too long? Well, I have and decided to solve this problem by building this simple notification system using an Arudino microcontroller. It uses a dual-axis accelerometer to detect motion and vibration coming from the washer (or dryer) and alerts my phone via SMS text message when the machine is no longer vibrating. I tried to build the easiest system I could using parts sourced from a local store and some online tools that help simplify the process of sending these alerts. Follow along as I show you how to put together this simple but useful project….(read more)
