Twitter telegraph is a project by Devon Elliot making telegraph sounder tap out Twitter messages using Arduino Uno. It’s an interesting attempt to connect technology rooted in the 19th- and early 20th-centuries with 21st-century networks: Read the rest of this entry »

A collective instrument capturing breathe with paper windmills

cataSopros

Cata Sopros is interactive sound installation running on Arduino Uno and created by Elas Duas, a multidisciplinary studio based in the city of Guimarães (Portugal). If you translate the title from portuguese it means: Breathe Catchers. In fact the project is a collective musical instrument made with paper windmills transforming the users’ breathe into sounds:

The windmills have inbuilt electret microphones that were connected to an Arduino Uno. The sensor data was then sent to MaxMSP and the sounds were played with Ableton Live. The video was shot at the cloister of the beautiful Alberto Sampaio museum in Guimarães, Portugal.

What time is it? Explore Galileo board’s real time clock tutorial

Zoe Romano February 20, 2015

intel_blog_post

In the past weeks we explored how to make a gsm-controlled star light, a touch-screen controlled marionette, and how to learn more about Linux on Intel Galileo Gen 2.

In today’s tutorial  you’ll learn how to create a “Wake up clock” which will turn on and illuminate the room slowly, simulating a morning sunrise. And hopefully, it will make waking up on Mondays a bit easier! Read the rest of this entry »

Arduino Day 2015: submissions for organizers are open!

Zoe Romano February 19, 2015

BlogPost_ArduinoDay

On Saturday the 28th of March we planned to celebrate Arduino Day with our global community.
We are organizing 4 official events in Boston (USA) at MIT, in Torino (Italy) at Officine Arduino, in Malmo (Sweden) at Arduino Verkstad, in Budapest (Hungary) at Arduino Hungary,and in Bangalore (India) at Arduino Karkhana.

If you live near one of them you can come an visit us, otherwise you can organize one locally and invite experts or a newbies, engineers, designers, crafters and makers to give their contribution and share their experience with Arduino. Submissions for organizers are open until 15th of March!

Arduino Day is open to anyone who wants to celebrate Arduino and all the things that have been done (or can be done!) with it. The events will offer different types of activities, tailored to local audiences all over the world. Read the rest of this entry »

Deconstructing Iot: Temboo video-interviews Tom Igoe

Zoe Romano February 18, 2015

Tom-Igoe

At Temboo they’ve just started a new web series and the second episode released last week is a video interview with Arduino co-founder Tom Igoe.
He spoke with Vaughn and Claire about the challenges the Internet of Things poses to designers, the relationship between consumer and industrial IoT applications, some of his favorite Arduino creations, and more.

This video is part of “Deconstructing IoT” series: they’ll be putting online new videos every week, and many will feature IoT applications built with Arduino. Stay Tuned!

 

Creating Connected Objects with Massimo Banzi at IDEO

Zoe Romano February 17, 2015

Workshop IoT

Two days of workshop with Massimo Banzi visiting IDEO headquarters in Munich is scheduled for the 28th of February on the topic of smart homes and connected objects. Book your participation (max 20 participants)

The program starts with a brainstorming session, led by IDEO and Massimo Banzi, around Connected Objects and IoT. Then, participants will prototype an IoT device, with a kit that includes an Arduino YÚN and a selection of Tinkerkit sensors and actuators.

nordic-hackathon

Arduino Verkstad is partner of the Nordic Internet of Things Hackathon 2015 organized in collaboration with Mobile Heights & the MVD Project and taking place April 10th-12th, 2015 in the city of Lund, Sweden. Programmers, interaction designers, professionals and enthusiasts  are invited to a 50-hour competition for attendees from any part of the globe no matter their technical skills and focused on two topics: Smart Transportation or Smart Home.

The great news is that the organisation is ready to pay travel expenses to up 10 teams from outside Sweden. You can submit your idea or project proposal within the Hackathon’s framework and if it gets accepted they will fly you here to compete against the other teams.

Build a Touchscreen Controlled Marionette with Intel Galileo

Zoe Romano February 14, 2015

Making gets really interesting and fun especially when mixing laser cut shapes, servo motor, tft screen, MDF, plexiglass and Intel Galileo Gen 2. After you assemble the parts and follow the steps of this tutorial, you’ll be able to control the puppet through an interface on the screen. Enjoy the tutorial!

We are going to have a little fun with the Intel® Galileo development board. This time around, we’ll make a simple puppet control system. We’ve put together a “running robot” marionette with a simple mechanism that uses a continuous servo. We’ll be use a touchscreen interface to control various outputs using sliders and switches.

As always, you can modify the designs to suit your needs. We will teach you how to incorporate touchscreens, and make the interface necessary for controlling the Intel® Galileo Gen 2 board.

Just so you know, the instructions this time around are quite long. That’s due to the assembly of the marionette. I would review the assembly instructions fully before attempting to put it together. While it looks long and complicated, if you group the parts, it much simpler.

So, let’s start the puppet show!
