Alexandre Dubus after building a fantastic tricopter, decided to keep the original chassis and add some Nintendo Wii console gyroscopes. Combined with an Arduino ProMini and a 6DOF IMU made from Nintendo Wii MotionPlus and Nunchuk.
The result is a perfect, stable flight as you can see in the video from the onboard camera that has almost no vibrations even if it is just cable staped without any vibration dampeners.
The whole documentation complete with schematics and more pics can be found here for the tricopter and here for the TriWiiCopter.

Fart Operated Random Channel TV Remote
posted July 23 2010 22:19.22

User Schmidtn from instructables made an unusual TV remote, a fart activated one!
Using a gas sensor and an arduino this remote changes to a random channel whenever the gas sensor detects methane. :)
Not a huge step for mankink but i know a few people that would feel really uncomfortable near this remote.
All the details can be found at instructables.

nBot - Short Robot-Battle Example
posted July 12 2010 19:44.41

shynet after presenting us the nBot for first time now comes back with a small battle between two bots. The red and the blue team fight till "death" and at the end of the video you'll learn who wins.
A school project getting better and better.

Meet the nBot
posted June 29 2010 17:12.57

shynet and his friend made the nBot as a school project. The nBot is a moving robot that shoots a laser - the laser hits the opponent team laser detecting sensor (which is a small system attached to an Light Dependent Resistor - LDR). On each hit the opponent robot sends a hit signal to the main server, then the main server calculates the remain...

Lego NXT controlled with Android smartphone via Bluetooth
posted June 21 2010 20:26.30

linuxgeocacher is demonstrating an application of NXTControl for remote controlling a Lego Mindstorms NXT robot via an Android powered mobile phone. The difference is that you no longer need an intermediate PC, you can directly control the NXT via Bluetooth. All you need to have is an Android powered smartphone with at least Android version 2.1. There is also an Action-Button for doing other things than moving around.
Instructions and source code can be found here.

fire fighting robot using LEGO NXT group 4
posted June 16 2010 19:28.34

This video shows results form the final project work in the mobile robotics course MMT200 at Dept of Design Sciences, Lund University. The project was performed by Magnus Brange and John Ã…kesson. The robot (NXT operating under leJOS JVM) is controlled by a game controller connected to a computer which in turn communicates with NXT via Blue Tooth.
Don't expect water, this robot uses air to stop the fire but still manages it.

Have you ever imagined owning a quadricopter with three axes accelerometer, two gyrometers [one axe & two axes], one ultrasound sensor and two cameras constructed from carbon fiber and high resistance PA66 plastic? And to go beyond, imagine to contr...

Arduino Mp3 player in a physics textbook
posted June 10 2010 16:04.15

camerons started out with the goal of building a standard mp3 player with a remote as a class project for Stanford's EE47.
He didn't only made it but he managed to do it with a tricky way to. The result is a player with full remote capabilities and in a neat case also. And remeber, don't get fooled by the apple. ;)
Code, details, more videos and complete documentation you can find here.

PlayStation 2 Controller Arduino Library Demonstration
posted June 8 2010 16:36.56

Bill Porter starting with code originally written by Shutter of Arduino forums and after adding analog stick support, rewrote it into an Arduino library.
In the video he demonstrates using an Xbee radio module to control his track robot.
For a sum of the library features and details you can check here.
