A simple and easy capacitive sensing tutorial
posted November 3 2010 20:44.46 by Giorgos Lazaridis

For many of us, capacitive sensing is kinda "space-technology". Looks like that Joby Taffey had something like this in his mind when he decided to use his capacitive sensor with his launchpad...

Jacobís Ladder becomes Kid-Safe!
posted November 3 2010 10:00.45 by Giorgos Lazaridis

A Jacobís Ladder is surely an impressive piece, yet somehow dangerous due to the high voltages. Paul wanted to make a kid-safe Jacobís Ladder replica. He came across...

Rock Paper Scissors Playing Glove
posted November 2 2010 16:19.29 by Giorgos Lazaridis

SentryGun53, also known from his Airsoft Sentry Gun, made another Rock Paper Scissors Glove. We had seen one similar in the past, but this one has a simpler implementation. Instead of flex sensors (which is kinda too much), he used two simp...

Infinite Bubblewrap
posted October 14 2010 18:33.02

Chris Aloisio and Ryan Casey, students at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute made this custom glove-based game as a project.
The object is to have a glove based controller that gives you the sensation of popping bubble wrap using sensors and motors on the fingers, without the need for actual bubble wrap.
This game first wor...

An arduino equipped bar table
posted September 30 2010 20:48.03

mettapera build a small bar inside a table and in order to spice it up added a seven-band audio spectrum equalizer with both LCD screen and RGB leds and a smoke machine. All this is controlled by an Arduino and the bar is supported by a gas spring to help the lifting.
A neat small corner transforms in a sec to a mood changing place and the "Zorba the Greek" soundtrack helps the most. :)
Arduino code and more details can be found here.

Real Bmw cluster for Lfs
posted September 22 2010 3:51.31

herctrap strikes again with a new dashboard for Lfs, from a BMW this time. The result is excellent and the dashboard seems to fit better with the game.
The communication is done via arduino and you can find the code and more details here.

Lego Green Lantern Power Battery
posted September 10 2010 19:06.58

JustJ0n made a replica of Green Lantern power battery from Lego. But what is a lantern without a ring to power it up?
Inside the lantern is an Arduino responsible for activating the lights when the RFID ring is near it.
A nice mixture of fantasy comics and modern technology coming together.
For complete info and more photos you can check here.
