Arduino Paypal Vending MachineArduino Paypal Vending MachineArduino Paypal Vending Machine

Friday, October 29th, 2010

 

[...]This PayPal vending machine on exhibit at the PayPal X Innovate 2010 developers conference was created by Ray Tanaka and his crew at PayPal Labs.

They hacked together the multi-part system using a mechanical candy dispenser, a couple of Arduino Duemilanove, a WiShield, relay, proximity sensor, and LED display.

The end result allows you to scan a QR code, make a payment, and acquire munchies using a smartphone. As you make your payment, the machine will tweet your purchase and notify a confirmation display.

Control Your Arduino via Mobile Phone Through the Internet

Thursday, October 7th, 2010

 

[Bilbo] forum user shared a nice piece of code to communicate to Arduino via Twitter (and Php, and Python, and offcourse a PC hooked up to the Arduino). If you need to get rid of shields and stuff you may want to follow his post:

Alright now I know that there have been lots of threads on this, but I think this is a different approach. I wanted to be able to control my arduino from my cell phone, and without a cell shield or ethernet shield. Thus, i did it through twitter through my computer.

Twitwee clock tweets your Tweets

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

What would be the most apt way to notify someone when they have a new Tweet? Why through the chirps of a cuckoo clock of course.

Heidelberg-based designer Haroon Baig has modified a traditional cuckoo clock adding an Arduino board, custom software and a touchscreen display to create the Twitwee clock.

(cool) Video after the break.

New home monitoring setup – part 1

Friday, February 26th, 2010

The second post of the week about open source home monitoring.
Part – 1 means that for now you can read just a long list of pieces of hardware.
But then: home monitoring and X10 are the more interesting projects around.

waiting for part 2!

Arduino Pachube Library

Wednesday, February 24th, 2010

As I read on this blog post by Jose Anes, he has been working on a while on the Arduino > Ethernet shield > Pachube communication, to achieve “a Pachube manual update client on the arduino that pushes EEML XML format to Pachube directly, without a PC in the middle”.



If someone has a better library, please let me know where to find it.  Here is a link to the code I am using to accomplish this purpose.  So far it is working well enough.  Some interesting points:
  • I had to print directly to the stream (ethernet in or out), because creating an EEML XML string was too much for the small memory of the Arduino.  Direct writing as a stream solves that.
  • I still want to avoid the reset every time it uploads to pachube (took that from the pachube CSV example).

The code: 20100218-pachube

TwypeWriter (Twitter Monitoring Typewriter)

Monday, February 22nd, 2010

Nice Oomlout wat to have a twitter-related typewriter. Arduino (+ethernet shield) searches for a keyword and then physically prints the results for everyone in the office.
Code ready.

Good work!

How to build a web connected gas meter with your Arduino

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010

[Richard] points out nother way to spread information over the internet via arduino (as he did in this post on eHome). He tries to send gas information to the Pachube, using EEML as the format.
Read the full entry.
