LittleBits Hue Lighting Controller
My (Open Source) LittleBits Hue Lighting Controller project leverages the LittleBits Arduino Bit, a small linux computer (like a BeagleBone, Raspberry Pi, or UDOO), and the Philips Hue Hub to easily control the state, brightness, and color of your Hue lightbulbs via a tactile interface.
Hacking the PopShop (A Year Ago)
A year ago, we built a ridiculous light/music automation system using image recognition, AC relays, Arduino, custom TCP/IP servers, and 3D printers … in only 24 hours. I finally got around to editing the raw footage into a showcase video. Enjoy!
Tutorial 9 for Arduino: Wireless Communication
This tutorial was featured on the official Arduino blog on 3/9/2011 This week, we go wireless! We’ll be using a set of arduino Unos, XBee shields, and XBee Transceivers that will create a Personal Area Network (PAN) for wireless serial communication. By the end of the episode, we will be[…]
Tutorial 8 for Arduino: SPI Interfaces
This tutorial was featured on the official Arduino blog on 3/9/2011 In this week’s arduino tutorial, we’ll be taking a look at SPI device control using the arduino. Specifically, we’re going to be using the Analog Devices 5204 Digital Potentiometer to control the brightness of several LEDs. Enjoy the video![…]
Tutorial 6 for Arduino: Serial Comm and Processing
This tutorial was featured on the official Arduino blog on 3/9/2011 The next four episodes are all about communicating between the Arduino and other devices. In this video, we’ll focus on communicating with the computer via a standard serial connection. We’ll be using a new programming language called “processing” to[…]
