- Open-source loom encourages interdisciplinary learningvon Arduino Team am Oktober 24, 2023 um 5:30 pm
You don’t need to go back more than a century to find people who carried the job title “scientist” without any qualifiers. But as STEM fields advanced, people had to become increasingly specialized in more niche disciplines. In recent years, however, we’ve seen a bit of a reversal in that trend and modern occupations often The post Open-source loom encourages interdisciplinary learning appeared first on Arduino Blog.
- Fortune Cat uses embedded speech recognition to predict your futurevon Arduino Team am Oktober 24, 2023 um 1:09 pm
For well over one hundred years, people have been constructing machines that dispense fortunes to those who ask at the insertion of a coin and the push of a button. In modern days, this has taken the form of mobile apps that can be far more expansive, albeit with a lack of physical interaction. Seeing The post Fortune Cat uses embedded speech recognition to predict your future appeared first on Arduino Blog.
- Brew virtual potions by mixing ingredients in this interactive cauldronvon Arduino Team am Oktober 22, 2023 um 3:28 pm
The large, bubbling cauldron is a classic mainstay in our Halloween decorations as it evokes imagery of devious witches and their mysterious concoctions. Fed up with this being a mere display piece, element14 Presents’ Katie Dumont created an enchanted cauldron that allows visitors to brew their own digital potions from an array of distinct ingredients using a whimsical The post Brew virtual potions by mixing ingredients in this interactive cauldron appeared first on Arduino Blog.
- Building the OG smartwatch from Inspector Gadgetvon Arduino Team am Oktober 20, 2023 um 6:37 pm
We recently showed you Becky Stern’s recreation of the “computer book” carried by Penny in the Inspector Gadget cartoon, but Stern didn’t stop there. She also built a replica of Penny’s most iconic gadget: her watch. Penny was a trendsetter and rocked that decades before the Apple Watch hit the market. Stern’s replica looks just like the cartoon The post Building the OG smartwatch from Inspector Gadget appeared first on Arduino Blog.

As one of YouTube’s most prolific makers, GreatScott! has a lab full of equipment that we love. But a lot of that equipment represents a potential hazard to children and GreatScott! has a newborn at home. Before that baby becomes a curious and ambulatory toddler, he decided to restrict access to his lab with this The post GreatScott! childproofs his lab with a fingerprint-reading smart lock appeared first on Arduino Blog.
- A DIY autonomous lane keeping system on a budgetvon Arduino Team am Oktober 18, 2023 um 12:22 pm
Despite overconfident proclamations from high-profile players in the tech and automotive industries, we’re still a long way from fully autonomous self-driving cars. Current prototypes work well under ideal conditions, but are easily thwarted by everyday real world anomalies. Lane keeping, however, is a much more approachable challenge and Computerphile was able add such functionality to The post A DIY autonomous lane keeping system on a budget appeared first on Arduino Blog.
- Replicating Penny’s computer book from Inspector Gadgetvon Arduino Team am Oktober 17, 2023 um 11:52 pm
The Inspector Gadget cartoon was, naturally, full of fun gadgets. Even the eponymous inspector’s niece, Penny, got some nifty gizmos. One notable example was her computer book, which was exactly what it sounds like. To pay homage to the classic cartoon, Becky Stern recreated Penny’s computer book using a pair of Arduino boards. It isn’t clear exactly The post Replicating Penny’s computer book from Inspector Gadget appeared first on Arduino Blog.

- This spinning spiral clock is hypnotizingvon Arduino Team am Oktober 16, 2023 um 10:31 pm
Sometimes makers come across products that they’d love to buy, but which are too expensive to justify. When that happens, the natural inclination of the maker is to build a DIY version. Such projects often end up costing way more — in both time and literal currency — than the product would have. But when The post This spinning spiral clock is hypnotizing appeared first on Arduino Blog.
- Building a school bus ride to buy a toddler’s lovevon Arduino Team am Oktober 16, 2023 um 8:53 pm
We all know that a child’s love can be bought. But how can working class parents compete with the lavish gifts that wealthy parents can afford? The answer is simple: by building toys that aren’t purchasable. Not only will a DIY gift have far more meaning, but it will impart a sense of superiority that The post Building a school bus ride to buy a toddler’s love appeared first on Arduino Blog.
