Kurt Schulz
has a scooter, a plain ordinary scooter which transports him around the city.
One day he decided to make a simple battery state indicator for his scooter, while he builded it in a nights time he saw a screen, a TouchShield Slide OLED display with touch screen.
That screen must go to the scooter he though but what to do such a screen if the only thing in it is a mere battery state?
So Kurt added time and date, temperature, lean gauge with resettable max L-R indicators, current speed, resetta...

Arduino Weather Station
posted June 21 2010 20:31.27

created this as a school project where they made a Weather Station for harbours. The station provides data for temperature, pressure, rain, wind speed and direction, all these data are gathered by an Arduino and shown on a 128x64 GLCD display.
More info and the shield schematics can be found here.

LFS data on my Dashboard with Arduino
posted June 7 2010 17:24.21

herctrap used an arduino to read from the LFS (Live For Speed) game data such as rpm, speed, gear, turbo pressure, and fuel and made his own dashboard.
From the data he aquired he used 1 servo for the fuel indicator and a unipolar motor for the rpm that actuates also a shift light and one for the fuel indicator. The dashboard completes a 2x16 LCD screen showing current speed and current gear.

Homemade soldering station with temperature feedback (for under $40)
posted May 17 2010 11:29.23 by Giorgos Lazaridis

For under $40, this is a soldering station with temperature feedback from the soldering iron tip. Unlike other cheap soldering stations, this one will control the power delivered to the sodlering iron, according to the set-temperature (from a potentiometer) and according to the feedback from the thermocouple pair on the soldering tip. Both set value and tip temperature are displayed on a 16x2 LCD

HDD clock with LCD Touchscreen controller
posted April 9 2010 12:08.50

Jason Amsel and Konstantin Klitenik made a clock from an old hard drive and also used an LCD touchscreen acting as display and controller for time setting. HDD clocks are not new but combined like this i think its the first time. In the page you can find complete documentation, schematics, scripts and video links showing the clock in action. Watching time never was more fun.
