I think this will be my most… well thought out…. project yet! Woohoo!
I got some more gear in the mail yesterday. Below is an image of what my Arduino Ethernet Shield, from NKCelectronics looked like when I got it out of the packaging. I was totally willing to keep this, and repair it myself, but NKC stepped up to the plate and hit a customer service home […]
I made an order a while ago from DigiKey. I got some basic electronics prototyping stuff as well as a few sensors and LEDs t play around with. One of the more interesting things I picked up was a Ziglog ZDots PIR sensor (click to view datasheet). Now this is not the usual PIR sensor […]
My first order of stuff from DigiKey arrived today – yay! Unfortunately it is so tightly packed inside the box that I am unable to dig in more here at work. More on that later… Yesterday i began exploring making the arduino communicate with the computer it is attached to. Not having a breadboard left […]
So after receiving my arduino last week from Seeed studio, I have been itching to give it a roll. Unfortunately, as I mentioned before, I stupidly forgot to pick up a breadboard so I have been pretty limited to what I can do. That has not stopped me from hooking up a single LED and my giant […]
This one falls on the HARD side of hardware… Inspired by my good friend Nick, who does EE and works at the product design / idea house TwisThink, I decided to jump into the world of physical computing via Arduino. I apparanty know a thing or two about software, so I thought I would mix […]
