Motorize a manual wheelchair with this adaptable electronic system

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — May 15th, 2022 Motorized wheelchairs can be very expensive, and for those who are unable to afford them, getting around the house can become a challenge. This is what inspired Wesley Gardner from element14 Presents to design a series of wheelchair modifications that can improve a person’s mobility.  Gardner began by coming up with a few…… Continue reading Motorize a manual wheelchair with this adaptable electronic system

PecanPi Streamer review: high-end audio driven by Raspberry Pi 3B

Reading Time: < 1 minutes Minimalist This case is minimalism taken to a new level. Looking at the rear, we see the ports from a Raspberry Pi 3B, and not only the usual phono (RCA) sockets but XLR sockets too. This unassuming box is aimed right at the professional market as well as the audiophile. Driving the PecanPi is Volumio,…… Continue reading PecanPi Streamer review: high-end audio driven by Raspberry Pi 3B

Automatically make masking tape labels with this Arduino-powered machine

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — May 12th, 2022 Masking tape makes for a great label as its weak adhesive does not tend to leave visible residue and names can be easily sketched onto its surface, albeit quite slowly. To expedite this process, Hackaday.io user michimartini decided to design and build a machine that writes labels automatically. The device is essentially…… Continue reading Automatically make masking tape labels with this Arduino-powered machine

Teaching with Raspberry Pi Pico in the computing classroom

Reading Time: 6 minutes Raspberry Pi Pico is a low-cost microcontroller that can be connected to another computer to be programmed using MicroPython. We think it’s a great tool for exploring physical computing in classrooms and coding clubs. Pico has been available since last year, amid school closures, reopenings, isolation periods, and restrictions for students and teachers. Recently, I…… Continue reading Teaching with Raspberry Pi Pico in the computing classroom

This special front door controller has several ways to unlock it

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — May 11th, 2022 For YouTuber Jroobi, merely walking up to his front door, inserting a key into the lock and turning the handle was too simple, which led him come up with a very unique and high-tech design for a new type of lock. His idea was to combine several different kinds of verification/control…… Continue reading This special front door controller has several ways to unlock it

Entry/Exit Notifier: A simple, well-engineered build

Reading Time: 3 minutes Sounds simple, right? Wayne had found himself forgetting to send the necessary emails, and thought the process was a bit tedious when he did remember, which became the impetus for the project. There’s a little bit more to it than just being a button that makes it pretty cool though. “I used an old 512MB…… Continue reading Entry/Exit Notifier: A simple, well-engineered build

The new Portenta X8 (with Linux!) and Max Carrier redefine what’s possible

Reading Time: 3 minutes Arduino’s mission has always been to give creators, makers and innovators the tools they need to turn their ideas into real projects. That will never change. What is changing, and at warp speed, is our definition of possible. Because every day our accessible, flexible and reliable open-source hardware grows more powerful, and our ecosystem more…… Continue reading The new Portenta X8 (with Linux!) and Max Carrier redefine what’s possible
