Bluetooth controlled lights

The project is about controlling led lights over Bluetooth using windows mobile platform. There have been huge number of projects to control one or the other thing over Bluetooth, but majority of them have been for Android platform. This one is a little different as it can control up to eight synchronized lights over Bluetooth using a windows mobile phone. Each light contains an Arduino processor along with a 16 NeoPixel ring which is easily available online. The rings are ‘chainable’ i.e. the output pin of one is connected to the input pin of another and hence can be controlled by a single microcontroller pin. The effect generated by the ‘ring lights’ is excellent and are synchronized. Moreover, the shade and the box used are 3D printed and the necessary files might be available on request. The application used has some inbuilt effect such as Flickering along with a slider to change to color of the LED’s. The sample project along with the necessary files for Windows 8.1 and above are available on the codeplex for you guys to try… Continue reading

The Human Area Network – It’s More Than You Can Think!

You’re an energetic and outgoing person that love all the outdoors extreme sports? You would like a calculate sensor that can measure how much of energy you’re burned during the exercise? If you can’t find what you’re looking on the market, then it’s time to build your very own “Human Area Network”. Hold on a second, you’re wondering, “What is the uses of Human Area Network?” Good question! With this Human Area Network or it also known as “HAN”, you can measure the instantaneous acceleration in the three axes, where it’s being processed to acquire efficient curves and tell the user the energy he/she has burned during exercise. Furthermore, HAN can be a pretty good home remote controller, such as: You can use it to control the switch on/off the room lights by moving your hand from left to right, Turning the TV on with a sequence of movement, Control a video game (You can use your body as a joystick or speed wheel controller), and Measure the daily calories intake! The whole network is formed by a minimum of… Continue reading
