Arduino, GPS and Display i2C…

Friday, May 25th, 2012

 

En este nuevo tutorial Arduino by ARDUTEKA, estudiamos a fondo los módulos GPS, en concreto los módulos diseñados por LIBELIUM, para aprender a extraer y comprender todas las tramadas de datos que recibimos de los GPS y posteriormente, tratar esa información para mostrar en un display con bus i2C datos como la latitud, longitud, altura y hora UTC…

Alarma DIY con Módulo 3G, Cámara, Ultrasonidos, Teclado Matricial & Led RGB

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

Arduteka lanza su último tutorial!

En él nos descubre el nuevo módulo 3G para Arduino de Cooking Hacks con el que podremos construir una divertida alarma que nos enviará la foto de nuestro intruso directamente a nuestro correo, además de avisarnos por un mensaje sms a nuestro teléfono móvil sin necesidad de tener conectado nuestro Arduino a internet constantemente, pues lo hace todo a través de la red móvil.

Vamos a construirnos una alarma totalmente casera, a través del sensor de ultrasonidos, escanearemos continuamente el espacio situado enfrente suyo con un radio aproximado de 30º, cuando algún objeto o persona se sitúe en su campo de actuación a una distancia inferior a la que establezcamos, haremos sonar una alarma, tomaremos una fotografía, el Led RGB que antes estaba verde, pasará a color azul y daremos 10 segundos para poder desactivar la alarma a través de nuestro teclado matricial, si la desactivamos, volverá de nuevo a escanear el campo, pero si no!! Reproducirá un sonido contundente y se dispondrá a mandarnos un sms a nuestro teléfono móvil y la fotografía a nuestro correo electrónico.

A device to read your mind – or not?

Monday, November 14th, 2011

The latest member of the AI family, who is reaching out to users is the much talked about Siri. What if she started executing commands using just thoughts rather than words?

A project by Ollie and Josh, which everyone is talking about, called the Project Black Mirror is gaining a lot of interest among the believers and skeptics alike.

One of the comments reads as:

“Quick question? How are you amplifying the EEG signals before feeding them into the arduino? I ask because all of the neuroscience researchers I’ve talked to say you need an amplifier roughly the size of a VCR to bring the signals up to levels at which they can be analyzed. If you’ve found a way to just plug wires from the electrode pads into the analog inputs on an arduino that would be quite the breakthrough. Also is there any chance you’d be willing to demo your code for separating the brain activity on the EEG from noise created by environmental effects and muscle movements since I’m sure you know that something as small as an eye blink creates an electrical impulse at the scalp which dwarfs the majority of the brain’s electrical signals when measured through the skull. “

Unlike the other post that we made about brain-controlled devices using  an Emotiv headset, this one claims to recognize different words.

Another report of such a nature, comes from abcnews.go.com :

They outfitted volunteers with caps with EEG sensors, and asked them to steer a helicopter on a computer screen through a series of randomly generated rings that appeared on the screen ahead of it. There were no hand controls, no joysticks. They could only try to will the helicopter forward with their minds.

Citing an example of an experiment by Dr. Bin He of the University of Minnesota and his team.

Although it would be nice to observe such a project see the daylight, but for now, the possibility seems a little far away.

Prologue : Quoted from their blog:

Also today we have got the go ahead form kickstarter,  to get  project black mirror up there,  now all we need to do is set up an US business.. eeek ! ( anyone know how to set up a business in the US ?)

(PS: Verdict postponed till the Kickstarter program ends ;))

Arduino To iPhone Galvanic Skin Sensor

Thursday, September 29th, 2011

Interesting Workshop at ISEA 2011 in Istanbul led by Anna Dumitriu and Tom Keene with Alex May. The aim of the workshop is building and calibrating  iPhone compatible/connectable Galvanic Skin Response Sensors (GSR) to record subtle changes in emotion.

This very personal sensor data will then be shared online. Participants will also collaborate to develop a networked performance intervention to take place at ISEA 2011 that engages with the social benefits and ethical implications of disclosing such personal information as arousal levels within the public realm.

Participants will learn to solder and connect their own GSR sensors, connect them to their iPhones and share their sensor data online. There will be a discussion of the implications of this technology and the increasing issues of privacy as pervasive computing technology is increasingly able to record and reveal personal details. Finally participants will work with the workshop leaders to improvise, plan and rehearse an intervention performance work that will be performed at the end of the second day. This performance may be very subtle and not immediately obvious to any audience members that may be around, again playing with ideas of what we do and do not reveal to those around us.

We want a report!

iPhone controller LED suit

Thursday, September 16th, 2010

Here is a compilation video I threw together showing my LED suit in action this past weekend at Dragon*Con 2010 in Atlanta. More build reports, photos, and video to come soon.

Some time ago I posted previous experiment in wearable leds cloth. In this case is more of a structure underneath a peculiar cloth. It’s controlled by iPhone with an app wrote from [uiproductions]. In this video everything is explained in a detailed way.

iPhone, Arduino & Flash CS5

Wednesday, May 12th, 2010

[Martin Lihs] connected the iPhone to an Arduino via bluetooth and a socket server in between. No code supplied yet. We’ll check it out for you ;)

Control your iPhone using an Arduino (Recotama strikes again!)

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010

from MAKE:
When we last covered recotana’s Open Sound Controller (OSC) library for Arduino (ardOSC), he had an Arduino talking to an iPhone using the OSC protocol. The project worked quite well, however you had to manually connect the two together by specifying their IP address. Now, by adding an implementation of Bonjour, the Arduino can link up to the iPhone automagically, allowing one to easily get on with their mixing.

Arduino + iPhone = Human API
