LinkIt One

For the Sky Net Now project (https://www.facebook.com/SKYNETNOW) I ordered some LinkIt One boards.  I love my Arduino Megas.  They are my favorite boards.  I've been blogging about them for a long time now (2.5 years ish?).  For the LUCAS (Lightweight Universal Catographic Atmospheric Sensors) modules I wanted to remove some components so we could test …

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 …

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 …

Project 2 – the Nintendo DS Screen

I said, in the last post, that the second project was actually going to be soldering the breadboard for the distance tracker... I decided to get some help from some EEs to get that done instead of try to figure it all out on my own.  Since the Nintendo DS screen is right here...Parts needed:1) …

First Summer Project — Distance to LCD

The first project for the summer is a quick prototype to plug in an LCD screen and a PING))) from parallax to interface with an Arduino [the second project will be to write the code for the AVR and then solder some connectors to a breadboard, plug in the AVR, LCD, PING, and 9V power …
