When the zombie apocalypse comes be prepared with your own DIY Zombie detector using Arduino. via instructables
The following activity is based on a lesson for teachers who use the Ardusat Space Kit (http://ardusat.com). However, this activity will work for anybody with an Arduino, luminosity sensor (we are using the SparkFun TSL2561), and an Infrared Thermometer (MLX90614) sensor.
To make this successful you’ll need to get the right parts and install a few items including adding the Ardusat SDK library to the Arduino IDE software. For those looking for an introduction to Arduino for the Ardusat Space Kit check out the website: https://www.ardusat.com/launch.
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.
