Build your own Arduino based bacon alarm clock! #Arduino
Who doesn’t love waking up to the smell of bacon in the morning? This is a fun project from Instructables user llopez2005.
This is a project I came up with that was inspired by my love for bacon!
This is an alarm clock that is designed to wake you up with the smell of bacon. With the help of an arduino the alarm clock will already have the bacon aroma filling the room to wake you up before the alarm, or it will make you just want some bacon when the alarm goes off.
1. Arduino Uno (can be found at Newark/Element 14)
2. RTC ( Real Time Clock ) shield with Bluetooth -( You will also need an Android device with the Blueterm app )
3. Mini Dual LED Matrix shield
4. Bacon scented oil
5. A 5″ mini frying pan ( found at wal-mart )
6. Unscented candle wax
7. Oven bake clay ( for the bacon )
8. Sink strainer set
9. Electric Candle warmer
10. USB and AC receptical outlet combo – 120v / 15 amp ( Can be found online or at Home Depot )
11. 3~32VDC SSr-25 DA Solid State Relay ( Found online )
Adafruit Proto Shield for Arduino Kit – Stackable Version R3: This prototyping shield is the best out there (well, we think so, at least), and now is even better with Version R3 – updated for the most compatibility with just about all the Arduinos! It works with UNO, Mega, Leonardo, NG, Diecimila, Duemilanove, and compatible Arduinos. Yun’s and Arduino Ethernets have a chunky Ethernet jack that gets in the way of stacking, you can use the stacking headers included and it will work, just doesn’t sit nice and flat. Read more.
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
