‘Draw It Yourself’ is a MIDI controller created by Dani Sanz which uses conductive ink as push-buttons. It is based on Arduino Uno and uses a capacitive sensor to determine whether the drawn buttons are being touched or not: (more…)

Fritzing is out with a new release including Arduino Yún microcontroller!

Monday, July 28th, 2014

Fritzing is an open-source hardware initiative that makes electronics accessible as a creative material for anyone. You can easily learn how to build a circuit for you project and also design your own PCB.

Last week, the Fritzing team announced the new release with a number of new parts, especially a number of popular microcontrollers, among which also Arduino Yún: (more…)

Concrete Batch Plant using Arduino and LIFA in Bangladesh

Tuesday, December 10th, 2013

concrete plant

Arduino user Geotechbd wrote us from Bangladesh to share his experience:

Our company here in Bangladesh owns a quite old concrete batch plant, which had full manual control requiring an operator to control 14+ switched and observe 3 mechanical scales (dial gauges). I was successful to upgrade this plant to an automated unit requiring minimal operator input using custom made Arduino Uno compatible board and LIFA. Wiring is still messy which I shall take care in the near future. (more…)

People over megahertz with Massimo Banzi at Codemotion – Get the promocode

codemotion conference

 

As Fritzing guys pointed recently out on their blog

Codemotion is not just another tech conference where developers and engineers attend to compare tools and argue about what’s best and what’s cool. It is a meeting point for many disciplines, hardware meets software and design in a unique and powerful combination.

We’ll be participating to the event, not only with a workshop on wearables (sorry it’s sold out!), but also with

  • People over megahertz – a keynote speech by Massimo Banzi opening the conference on friday the 10th, thanx to MakerFaire Rome
  • Makers movement and fashion are getting closer than we think - a panel on saturday the 11th with Sam Muirhead (OneYearOpensource), Hannah Perner-Wilson (Plusea), Mika Satomi (Kobakant) and Zoe Romano  exploring  how the use of low-cost devices and machines is multiplying possibilities of participation and is transforming the way we approach our garments.

We invite you to join us with a special 50% discount code available only today! You just need to enter this promocode: love_arduino .

 

The Arcade Machine, by Timothy (15)

Tuesday, November 27th, 2012

[Timothy Zandelin], a 15 years old Arduino enthusiast has sent us his first Arduino Project, an arcade interface based on Arduino Leonardo.

The cabinet is made of 4mm HDF and were laser cut at “Fabriken” in Malmö. The red arcade sign in the top is produced in 5mm translucent acrylic. All design and construction drawings were made in Illustrator. I used an Arduino Leonardo to connect the joystick, buttons and the LED light.  The game installed, Superstar Chefs, is an old game developed by my dad’s cousins.

On the other hand, Timothy also built his own prototyping board to learn about how to use different inputs and outputs.

My prototype board was made with Fritzing.

It includes:

– 6 green 3mm LED’s,

– 11 resistors (6 330 ohm, 4 10K ohm and one 100 ohm),

-1 dip8 socket with an ATtiny45,

– 1 potentiometer,

– 4 pushbutton and header sockets.

I created this prototype board to easily get started with Arduino.

Timothy, welcome on board!

Control An LCD with a 595 Shift Register

Monday, January 16th, 2012

[Carlo Denaro] is sharing a smart solution to save digital pins while controlling an LCD, using Shift Register 74HC595. A simple yet useful project with skecth&libraries, datasheets and Fritzing schematics.

Circuit Milling With Roland iModela, Now Available on Arduino Store

Tuesday, January 10th, 2012

[Enrico Bassi] from FablabTorino brought to the extent the use of the Roland iModela, using the little (and inexpensive) desktop milling machine for pcb milling.  (in the picture we milled the overexposed Fritzing Parking Assistant).

He wrote some Scuola Lessons (here’s the first) to explain how he realized the pcb, starting from Fritzing.

Roland iModela is now on sell on the Arduino Store.

Fritzmas On Fritzing

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

[Andre Konig] is sharing Fritzing’s Christmas Challenge (ending the 18th of December).

[...]Take a look at what you’ve built with Fritzing this year, and snap a couple of photos/screenshots. If you think it’s an interesting concept, a technical masterpiece, or just fun, we want to see it all.  
Then either upload it to our projects gallery or mail them to info (ät) fritzing.org. (Also, you must agree that we may publish what you send us (if you prefer, anonymized).

Deadline is Sunday, December 18th.
