Geeky Projects for the Experienced Maker
You've mastered the basics, conquered the soldering iron, and programmed a robot or two; now you've got a set of skills and tools to take your Arduino exploits further. But what do you do once you've exhausted your to-build list?
Arduino Playground will show you how to keep your hardware hands busy with a variety of intermediate builds, both practical and just-for-fun. Advance your engineering and electronics know-how as you work your way through these 10 complex projects:
Each project begins with a list of required tools and components, followed by the instructions, full sketch, and circuit board templates for the build, as well as directions for building a permanent enclosure. You'll even find the author's design notes, which are sure to provide inspiration for your own inventions.
- A reaction-time game that leverages the Arduino's real-time capabilities;
- A tool for etching your own printed circuit boards;
- A regulated, variable-voltage power supply;
- A kinetic wristwatch winder decked out with LEDs;
- A garage parking assistant that blinks when your vehicle is perfectly parked;
- A practical and colorful pH meter;
- A ballistic chronograph that can measure the muzzle velocity of BB, Airsoft, and pellet guns;
- A battery saver that prevents accidental discharge;
- A square-wave generator;
- A thermometer that tells the temperature using a sequence of colored LEDs.
Gather your parts, break out the soldering iron, and get ready to take your Arduino skills to the next level with Arduino Playground.
