Wii Nunchuck controlling ArduRover

ArduRover V1This is to connect a Wii Nunchuck to the ArduRover and then, by moving the Wii Nunchuck move the rover instead of just using Serial and WASDX to control it.The first thing to know is that I didn't document everything for the first two Wii Nunchuck demos.I am pretty sure I bought my wii …

Simple HUD (electronics) with Arduino + BLE + OLED – Part 1

UPDATE - 10/10/14: This may not work with the Nano.  I've plugged everything in multiple times - the pin outs are both 40mA for the Mega vs the Nano.  It is possible that I've fried the Nano.  One Nano is connecting to the Arduino IDE where the other isn't recognized.  When I'm done debugging that …

Arduino Mega put bootloader on different Arduino Mega

At one time I was attempting to upload TFTP bootloader to my Arduino Mega.  Something happened during that upload (partially b/c the bootloader can't be uploaded via my pocket programmer) and the power went out on the programmer and I bricked my Mega.On your Master Mega -load the ArduinoISP sketch from the Exampleschange the Programmer …

BLE + OLED + Arduino MEGA + iPhone 4s

This is geared towards my iPhone 4s, but really any BLE (Bluetooth 4.0) enabled device will work.The first thing is to go out and read this: https://learn.adafruit.com/getting-started-with-the-nrf8001-bluefruit-le-breakout/introductionor this: https://learn.adafruit.com/downloads/pdf/getting-started-with-the-nrf8001-bluefruit-le-breakout.pdfDone?  Good.Previous tutorials have worked with the SainSmart OLED which uses a 1306 SSD (the code for this can also be found at Adafruit for their graphics - https://learn.adafruit.com/monochrome-oled-breakouts/arduino-library-and-examples).The nrf8001 …

SD Card and Arduino Mega

I purchased this awesome little SD card breakout from Sparkfun about 2 years ago https://www.sparkfun.com/products/12941 - a lot of family issues came up and I wasn't able to work on it with the kids like I wanted to.  With some recent work I'm doing with sensors (more blog entries to follow) I also know I'll need to …

Seedstudio TFT Touch Shield + Arduino MEGA

I was having some issues with my Touch Shield displaying content.  It worked just fine capturing touch, but not displaying graphics.The first thing I did was go to: http://www.seeedstudio.com/wiki/2.8%27%27_TFT_Touch_Shield_V1.0In the first paragraph is a link to the Adafruit Touch Screen Library to download.At the bottom is a link to the TFT Touch Shield libraries.zip to download.I downloaded both …

Stepper Motor and Arduino Motor Shield

I was moving along on the 3D scanner and I needed to wire up the stepper motor.  I bought this stepper motor #324 from Adafru.it - it seems to be a great motor.  I bought a motor stepper driver from sparkfun, but I never hooked it up, nor soldered the pins I needed to it.You …

Wii Nunchuck and Arduino Mega 2560

I thought it would be cool to hook up a Wii Nunchuck to my Arduino.  Who knows how I could use this - a servo rotating, an RC car, RC Submarine, almost anything I guess.Well, I tried multiple different programs...and only one that worked correctly.  I'm a simple developer, I like to plug in code …

NintendoDS Touch Screen to LCD

Tonight's project was not very hard to do, but I wanted to get the NintendoDS to send output to the LCD.  I plugged in the NintendoDS screen and the LCD screen the way I've done before in previous tutorials.  If you want to know how to wire the LCD you can go here (http://arduino.cc/en/uploads/Tutorial/LCD_bb.png).  Plugging …
