Paperduino: Take A Guess

Yup. Exactly what you probably thought. This is an Arduino made from paper instead of using a printed circuit board. Created by DIYer Guilherme, this Arduino is fully functional and is also the most inexpensive Arduino available. Want to design your own? Instructions are indeed available, my friend. Link [via]

Arduino Milk

Thirsty for a fun DIY project this weekend? Check out these light-up milk bottles controlled by an Arduino. Created by Instructables user Nachimir, he’s posted full out instructions on how to construct your own. The video is very eerie but don’t let that scare you off. I’d be more worried about having to drink all that milk in one sitting. ...

Arduputer: The Arduino-based Computing Platform

We’ve seen the Arduino used before in multiple DIY projects and mods. Makes sense, especially since it’s a user-friendly microcontroller. But what about using the Arduino as a full-fledged computer? That’s what a guy named Johannes decided to do. Check out what he’s managed to pull off so far: I have resently been working on a project for the arduino, ...

Power Glove + Arduino

Anyone old enough to have owned an NES when it was the prime system knows how awesome the Power Glove could have been. Alas, it was just a controller bolted to a neat-looking glove. Now, 20 years later, Matt Mechtley has done the impossible and has officially made the Power Glove cool again. Using an Arduino, a Bluetooth module and ...

Beat Blender Prototype

The Arduino continues to power innovation and creation well into 2009. This blender, created by Matti Niinimaki, is rigged to create beats. No smoothies here, folks, just pounding techno full of cheesy sound FX. The Beat Blender prototype reads fruit embedded with RFID tags that are dropped into it. Hitting different blending speeds (Puree, Liquify, Blend, Grind, etc.) will add ...

Smapler: Snap-on Arduino Design

The Smapler is quite the instrument. First off, you’ll have to build it using your trusty Arduino since it’s a shield that works in tandem with the microcontroller. It’ll allow you to build some unique and interesting instruments as well. This new snap-on panel really gives it more of an instrument-like feel though, don’t you think? It features 4 knobs, ...

Control an iPod With Arduino

The iPod is hands down the most popular music player on the market nowadays. To really get the most out of it, you’ll need to whip out your Arduino microcontroller and the soldering iron. Using a new library written to allow control of an iPod through a the 13-pin connector, you’ll be able to write programs that can get the ...

Arduino Burglar Alarm

While I’m not a fan of Twitter, I can understand some of its potential uses. Take for instance, a burglar alarm. By using an Arduino + XBee radio module hooked up to a home alarm system, Kelvin was able to have his alarm system send an SMS to his phone when someone breaks into his home. It will also update ...

Arduino-based Etch-A-Sketch

Using the graphical programming language Processing and an Arduino microcontroller, Trevor Shannon built himself a software-based Etch-A-Sketch. The Arduino reads the input from two potentiometers and then through a serial connection, lines are produced on a computer screen. Over time, the lines disappear, just like a real Etch-A-Sketch. A simple, yet intuitive way of using the Arduino to build a ...

Processing Sound and Audio With The Arduino

It’s no news that we’re Arduino nuts here at Gearfuse, but lately, we haven’t seen anything that has really pushed the boundaries of the popular microcontroller. Now some smarty pants named Martin has come along with a schematic that allows real-time audio processing with the Arduino. This means you can create guitar FX pedals, equalizers and a whole lot of ...
