Toast your bread via WEB interface

Looking for more microcontroller ideas? Well take a look at super toaster project. This isn’t very practical usage of microcontroller and web interface but who knows it may be a part of future fully automated and web controlled toaster J Anyway this sounds fun – open browser and load toaster web page where you can select toast level and press the button. In a minute you get your toast nice and shiny. OK, web based toaster has more useful features than making impossible toasting for your mom. It could log events from kitchen with proper sensors. Instead of toasting you could log from anywhere and check if you left the stove on. The whole fun is based on WIZ200WEB module that comes with WIZnet Ethernet module and ATmega128 microcontroller. It gives enough power and pins to do much more fun in your kitchen than toasting only. You can also download a nice presentation of entire project here. Continue reading

Arduinoil – The Greatest Combination of an Arduino with Oil Gauge

People who living at countries that have seasonal changes know that it’s definitely a living hell torture, especially when your vehicle is down in the middle of nowhere in the snowstorm! At that moment, you really don’t want to open up the car’s door and walking to the outside in below zero Celsius degree to check up your fuel oil gauge. However, you have no choice, but still have to do it in the ultimately freezing environment. Ok, you’re discovered that your vehicle was running out of fuel. So, you rush to the nearest fuel station to buy a few gallon of fuel. Once you’re checking your wallet. Darn, it’s already empty…! Honestly, it’s one of the most annoying yet torturing scene, and some of us might have been encountered with this kind of situation before. Well, for preventing the awkward moment happen on you, then it’s better to well-prepared, by developing a smart Arduinoil device! The main purpose of Arduinoil is allowing you to read the information from your vehicle’s current oil gauge and feed it to a web-enabled… Continue reading
