Hi there guys! Long time no see!
Well, since last September I’ve been living in Italy, I guess that’s the reason why I haven’t updated the website in a while, but I will make up to you, good things to come!!!
I moved to Milan on 16th of September 2011 for a “Erasmus” Program (it’s a exchange program, but here, saying Erasmus is easy to make people understand) at the Politecnico di Milano, which is one of the biggest universities in the fields of Engineering of Italy.
Today I was having fun with a MacroLenses and decided to take some pictures of my Arduino Uno board, I got quite happy with the results that I am using them as wallpaper, and I decided to share with you.
You can find the original file ≈ 15mb, also 1920×1200, 1680×1050 and 1280×800.
I got my Dotklok up and running some days ago, I am really enjoying it on my room.
But I want to do more with it. Too bad right now I don’t have much time to play with electronics and build cool things.
Anyway, today I decided to spend some time learning the Dotklok’s code and add a temperature sensor to it. The result was really cool, and now I am sharing the bit of code I added to the clock.
I got a sound sensor on Ebay some days ago, and decided to give it a try!
Really simple, just made a code to light up the led when the volume was higher than the ambient sound.
Just for fun! 😉
As many people have asked, here goes the code:
Remember that there are many other ways of doing this, for example using the PWM function along with analogRead() and map().
This is a simple and quick code I made for teach variables with arduino programming,
where we enter the variable numbers a, b, c in
and we get the answer using the Serial Monitor..
I won’t get in details about this code, it’s quite straightforward. But if you have any question, just ask! 🙂
I made some modifications in one of my projects, my moodlamp, where I mounted it in a CTRL huge key.
I’m planning on releasing all the project as Open Hardware/Source, but due my lack time, it’s not on my website yet!
Would you like to take a look at this project?
