New Post Type: Status

I’ve just released a new type of post on this blog: Status. Status-type posts contain only the body (content) of the post. There is still a permalink to the post, but there will be no excerpt and “Read more…” phrase. Basically, it’s just a quick thought on the index page.

Arduino Projects Book - Project 14: Tweak the Arduino Logo

Happy new year! I ate and slept too much during the break. This time, I'll interact with the Arduino through computer application. I will also introduce an Arduino-like IDE - Processing.

Arduino Projects Book - Project 13: Touchy-Feely Lamp

I have been very busy for the last two months. But for now, I have more time to blog and do electronics projects. In this article, I'm going to fabricate a touch sensor that huge companies use for their phones. Although this "touch sensor" doesn't work exactly like an iPhone touch screen, but it partially represents a capacitive touch sensor of most of the phones nowadays.

Arduino Projects Book - Project 12: Knock Lock

People protect their property in many different ways. One way they can do that is to equip fancy security systems. Those things are expensive, though. Therefore, in this project, we will use an Arduino, a piezo buzzer, and a servo motor to make a cheap security system to protect our valuable stuff.

Arduino Projects Book - Project 11: Crystal Ball

In this project, we will simulate how the crystal ball works. People say their wishes and shake the ball, then it will reveal the answer for the wish. Similarly, we will use the tilt switch as a crystal ball. However, we need one more thing to display the mysterious answer. Today, we will meet the liquid crystal display (LCD).

Arduino Projects Book - Project 10: Zoetrope

In the past when people had not yet invented the television, movie theaters used a very long ribbon of static images and rolled it very fast to create an illusion of a video clip. The device that helped them make movies using that method is called **zoetrope**. Today, I'm gonna use the Arduino and a DC motor to simulate how Zoetrope works.
