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...
Chris Yanc took a stepper motor from a scanner and with the help of EasyDriver and arduino started controlling its speed and rotation.
Nothing special, just some well written code and basic electronics and you have a full functional stepper motor controller, what else to ask?
Complete project along with the code can be found here.
mindthomas 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.
Adamfierman is making a system to let him enter his dorm room without a key. The idea is simple, a keypad, an arduino, and an EasyDrive for a stepper motor, combine them and you have your door unlocker. What's left to see is the mounting at the door to finish this project.
gicks87 demonstrates a paperweight made from a combination of wood and translucent epoxy resin that inside hides a led, a color sensor and an Arduino in order to read the color of paper underneath and light the led accordingly.
Simple and pretty to give as gift or enjoy it on your desk.
Code used can be found here.
Hans Jørgen Grimstad is making a clock with some nixie tubes and a dekatron and houses it in a beautiful case. The result is really good and that "nostalgia" feeling surrounds it, inside though arduino and xbee modules keeping the clock running.
Details can be found here but not all in English.
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.
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.
Markus Ulfberg made a "mood" light controller with an Arduino to change the colors in a led strip.
He uses only one potensiometer to control all colours much like the Philips LivingColors fixture and he also has 3 modes to choose, select a color with the color selector, pulse - pulsate the selected color and random/cycle - cycle randomly through the colour palette.
Simple neat and it works, the whole details along with the code are provided here.
