Build a 3d-printed remote control box with the help of Materia 101

MicroCase

One of the pleasures of watching TV depends on the use of a remote control that allows you to change channels from where you are. In the tutorial of this week, Kristoffer made an add-on to a previous lesson teaching us how to control a computer with a remote control like the one of your TV using Arduino Micro, IR-sensor. The add-on is a custom and colourful 3d-printed case created with Freecad and Materia 101.

Earthquakes reinterpreted by the human body become art

Saturday, November 29th, 2014

simograph0

“Earth Partitions” installation by artist Melik Ohanian was exhibited at the Centre d’Art Contemporain à Sète in France and it’s composed by two synchronized videos with a dancer and a seismogram, the second being “written” by the first.

The dancer with two controllers in the hands was asked to “translate” into corporal expression and movements what he saw in a seismogram of an earthquake . His movements were consequently “translated back” to a seismogram using a device. Both the mime and the seismograph were filmed at the same time and both were then broadcasted simultaneously on two different screens during the exhibition. (more…)

Gravity Touch bluetooth Glove powered by Arduino Micro

ARglove

Arduino user Jubeso submitted to our blog an instructable explaining the 10 steps to build an input device for gaming.

The  Gravity Touch bluetooth glove  is specifically designed to interact with augmented reality glasses like the Google Glass, Meta, Moverio BT or with the VR headsets like Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, vrAse, Durovis Dive: (more…)

A Speed Suit Activated with Motion #ArduinoMicroMonday

Monday, June 9th, 2014

speedsuit

Instructables user Beaconsfield posted a great project of a suit controlled by  Arduino Micro, lighting up EL wires when the wearer starts to walk and lights them up completely when the wearer runs or dances:

Most of the time EL wire is used as is, with manual on/off control. However, I wanted to control it with an Arduino, so it would react to results from a sensor. This motion-activated suit flashes when the wearer starts to walk and lights up completely when the wearer runs. Perfect for those late-night runs! (or dance parties – it lights up when the wearer moves, and this includes dancing) (more…)

Swimming Mermaid LED Tail #arduinomicromonday

Glimmer the Mermaid is an incredible project by Erin St. Blaine:  it uses about 180 Adafruit Neopixels, an Arduino Micro to control them and silicone. To change  animations and brightness she added a bluetooth module to connect it to an Android tablet:

Playing chiptunes with Arduino Micro #arduinomicromonday

Vespira created a project  forking a previous one made with Arduino Uno. In this case all audio is generated on the Arduino Micro:

If you look closely, you will see that I added a yellow wire going from the TXLED to the empty hole that was drilled over by the reset button. I added a single pin though this hole and epoxied the plastic in place to give myself another bread-boardable pin that has access to the PD5 signal which was not broken out. Simple mod really.

Using Arduino Micro to make a blinking belt #ArduinoMicroMonday

microbelt

Making a blinking belt with Arduino Micro, Altoids box, LED and some code:

This project had many ups and downs, sadly ending in a down. My greatest strength caused my demise since my aesthetically pleasing container, the Altoids box, is conductor and my LEDs, connected to the side, failed to blink properly. Even though my project didnt end up exactly like I intended, I still learned a lot from this project and had a bunch of fun experimenting with my Arduino Micro.

Hack! USB NeXT Keyboard with an Arduino Micro #ArduinoMicroMonday

Monday, March 10th, 2014

opened

On Adafruit Learning System there are a lot of cool tutorials and this  particular one is based on the Arduino Micro used to upcycles old Next keyboards:

Ladyada and pt had an old NeXT keyboard with a strong desire to get it running on a modern computer. These keyboards are durable, super clicky, and very satisfying to use! However, they are very old designs, specifically made for NeXT hardware, pre-ADB and pre-USB! That means you can’t just plug the keyboard into an ADB or PS/2 port or PS/2 to USB converter (even though it looks similar). In fact, I have no idea what the protocol or pinout is named, so we’ll just call it “non-ADB NeXT Keyboard”

Bicolor Square Heart/Valentines Necklace #ArduinoMicroMonday

ArduinoMicro - heart

 

Bicolor square heart/valentines necklace is a project made with Arduino Micro by Dr_Speed who shared some photos and code  on the Adafruit Forums!

heart_bmp[] =

B00010000},

I use a micro, but just about anything will do. There’s some Sugru on there to keep the sharp bits from catching on clothing/pockets. Usb battery powers the whole thing. It’s pretty bright, definitely not subtle.
