productspage_post

Today we are updating our website with a new Product Page. It’s been revisited to present you Arduino products within a context of possible applications for your creative projects. If you are beginning to tinker with electronics there’s a series of Entry Level products to make it easier for you to start having fun.

You’ll also find out we retired some products. That means we are not going to produce new official content about them and we are not going to manufacture them anymore in the near future with the same characteristics. But don’t worry, all the documentation we have shared and the forum sections are going to be kept online so you can access them whenever needed.

Luz Electoral creates a lightshow from poll results!

Zoe Romano July 7, 2015

luzelector01

Luz Electoral is an installation with the aim of showing the results of Spanish regional elections of May 24th 2015 without using a screen to display data (self-imposed requirement ;). This project, created by Neuronas Muertas,  shows the percentage of votes by lighting a strip of 33 Neopixels with the main color of each party for each region, scrolling the results in some kind of “electoral results mood light”. It basically transforms Spanish poll results into a lightshow running on Arduino, where each political party is represented by colors scrolling on a bar. Read the rest of this entry »

After two and a half years of work and dozens of prototypes, Kaia Dekker and Jesse Vincent have launched Keyboardio Model 01 on Kickstarter: an heirloom-grade mechanical keyboard designed for serious typists.

As you’ll see from the video presentation below, the Model 01 is not just a keyboard. Kaia and Jesse actually re-envisioned the way we type to make it feel great. On top of that it has a beautiful hardwood enclosure and it ships with source code and a screwdriver. The Model 01’s firmware is a regular Arduino sketch you can explore and change yourself.

Art Drops: capturing what the human eye can’t see

Zoe Romano June 25, 2015

gsambo01
Art Drop is a project by italian photographer Gianluca Sambo and recently awarded with first prize from PX3, “Prix de la Photographie de Paris”. He’s been experimenting for some time a DIY technique based on Arduino to capture amazing shapes of liquid drops mixed with dyes and other ingredients to vary the density, and therefore, the shape of the liquid in motion. Arduino allows him to synchronise the camera with the flash and the water pump, creating a series of pictures full of colours and unforeseen shapes.

Take a look at the video below to see how it works: Read the rest of this entry »

plant_post

The Selfie Plant is an interactive installation taking pictures of itself using Arduino Yún, Facebook Graph APIs and then uploads them to Facebook. It was developed by a group of students at the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design during “The secret life of objects” course held also by Arduino.cc team by Joshua Noble and Simone Rebaudengo. The final prototype was on display at the class exhibition, to observe the interaction of the audience with it, and the results are on Facebook.
