Teensy in action :-)
A 16-year-old student spent two years trying to invent a cost-efficient hearing device after getting the idea while visiting his grandfather in India.

I made this little boost circuit for projects and I thought others might like to see it.  You can build your own with files at the link.
This tiny board allows you to bring the power to your project, and not the other way around. Bring your micro to the sensor without running wires! A single AA battery is used to provide breadboard power of 5V or 3.3V (or other voltages by tuning the feedback resistors). A boost regulator provides the voltage. BooSTick is up for sale on Kickstarter! <a href="https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1710326172/boostick-small-aa-voltage-booster" ...

And my 27th Instructable is ready :-)
Detailed step by step instructions on how to connect the DHT11, the LCD, and program the Arduino with Visuino.
#Arduino #Visuino
I already made two Instructables on how to use DTH11/DTH21/DTH22 and AM2301 Temperature and Humidity sensors with Arduino, and you can find them here and here . I also made Instructable on how to use I2C LCD Character Display, and one on how to use a directly connected LCD Character Display .Here I will show you how you can use I2C LCD Character Display to display Temperature and Humidity measured by DHT11 sensor. The same steps can be followed t...

And my 24th Instuctable is done :-)
Detailed step by step instructions on how to connect the Infrared Obstacle Avoidance Sensor, and program the Arduino with Visuino.
#Arduino #Visuino
Infrared Obstacle Avoidance sensors are cheap, small sensors often used in robots, and Arduino project to detect objects near the sensor. The Infrared sensors work by sending an infrared light with some frequency, and then detecting if some of the light has reflected back to the sensor. The most common ones have a digital output indicating if object has been detected. Many of them have the option to be enabled or disabled.In this Instructable, I ...

And my 39th Instructable is ready :-)
Detailed step by step instructions on how to connect DS1307 Real Time Clock(RTC) to Arduino, and program it all with Visuino
#Arduino #Visuino
DS1307 Real Time Clock are widely available low cost I2C RTC modules. They come with a clock and a small battery, and when connected to Arduino, can keep track of real time even when the Arduino board is not powered.In this Instructable, I will show you how easy it is to connect DS1307 I2C RTC Module to Arduino, and read the time from it with Visuino. I will use the Tiny RTC Module that I have, but it should be very much the same with any other D...

And my 26th Instuctable is ready :-)
Detailed step by step instructions on how to connect the Motor, the Motor Driver, Potentiometer, and program the Arduino with Visuino to control it all.
#Arduino #Visuino
Brushed DC Motors are often used to drive robots around, or for variety of other cool Arduino projects. To control the motor with Arduino, you usually need to use a motor driver. There are a lot of different motor drivers available. One of the most popular and affordable ones for very small motors are the L9110S Motor Drivers. Please be aware that this driver board can drive only small motors, with max working current up to 0.8A. If you need more...

Downloadable, printable clothing may be coming to a closet near you. What started as designer Danit Peleg's fashion school project turned into a collection of 3D-printed designs that have the strength and flexibility for everyday wear. "Fashion is a very physical thing," she says. "I wonder what our world will look like when our clothes will be digital."
