Make a grey water recovery and hands free faucet with Arduino. via hackster
Provoked by this year’s HackADay Prize theme of saving the planet, this cheap hillbilly DIY Arduino grey water recovery and hands free faucet design was built with focus on cost efficiency. The necessary components of this project totaled less than 40$US and expended no more than 4 man (not woman) hours. The additional (optional) LCD display reveals the seconds of operation and volume in liters of grey water saved. Multimedia and coding below is of the prototype model.
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.
