It is Time to Have Some Fun with Arduino Robot!

Before the 21st century, it’s quite difficult to develop a personal robot, as it might cost us over hundreds (Maybe thousands) of dollars, just to build a simple robot prototype! However, thanks to the advent technology, we’re now can easily create any type of robots, with the help of Arduino. Honestly, it’s a piece of cake to develop your very own Arduino Robot. Guys, are you ready to build up an Easy Arduino Robot? If you did, let’s start the journey… Actually, this is a great little Arduino robot, which is based on an Arduino. Believe it or not, it can be done in a short period. For this project, you’ll need to use a Modern Device RBBB, as the brain of the robot. Don’t worry, as the RBBB kits are user-friendly, even for the amateurs who are new in soldering! Technically, the Arduino robot is powered with four AA batteries. The total cost of the project is very cheap. You have to apply the Sharp IR sensor as the eyes for the Arduino robot! This is how the Arduino… Continue reading

Would You Dare To Have a Doorbell Hacking?

You’re bored with the old style doorbell, and like to have a brand new doorbell hacking with the little help of Arduino? Hehe, then you’re now having the chance to develop this fun hacking experience… About the doorbell, it can be either battery operated or mains powered, which need to plug straightly into the wall. No matter what types of doorbell you’re using, just make sure that its on the fine condition. As you can see on the above figure, there are three wires connected to the Arduino board. The red wire is +3V and the black wire is ground. Since the doorbell chime unit usually draws its power from two AA batteries, thus it will get the same three volts from the Arduino too! The short white wire is act as the antenna for wireless reception of the signal from the remote button, and the other longer white wire will complete the circuit to the buzzer! IN this case, the Arduino treats it as an analog signal. As a result, you can use it to drive a transistor to… Continue reading
