Continuously measure wind speed and direction with this EMT conduit-mounted station

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — May 17th, 2022 It seems like DIY weather stations are everywhere, and while most can perform the basic functions of measuring temperature, humidity, and air pressure, the majority are still unable to determine wind speed and direction. In response, Austin Allen from Elation Sports Technologies LLC created his own system that uses an anemometer…… Continue reading Continuously measure wind speed and direction with this EMT conduit-mounted station

Introvention is a wearable device that can help diagnose movement disorders early

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — May 17th, 2022 Conditions such as Parkinson’s disease and essential tremors often present themselves as uncontrollable movements or spasms, especially near the hands. By recognizing when these troubling symptoms appear, earlier treatments can be provided and improve the prognosis for the patient compared to later detection. Nick Bild had the idea to create…… Continue reading Introvention is a wearable device that can help diagnose movement disorders early

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

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

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

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

Golf Ace helps you learn how to putt like the pros using tinyML

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — May 9th, 2022 Fancy golfing simulators are excellent for learning the best techniques such as balance and how to hold a club properly. However, their large cost puts them out of the reach of most people, so Nick Bild decided to create a far cheaper alternative that can still be beneficial. His Golf Ace system relies…… Continue reading Golf Ace helps you learn how to putt like the pros using tinyML

The Root Commander is a homemade MIDI controller that ensures you never play the wrong note

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — May 8th, 2022 After attempting to learn how to play the piano after some previous experience with guitar and music theory in general, YouTuber EvolutionStoneware encountered a few difficulties when trying to learn the keys on a standard MIDI keyboard. Because of this, she created a DIY MIDI controller called the Root Commander that allows…… Continue reading The Root Commander is a homemade MIDI controller that ensures you never play the wrong note

Estimating indoor CO2 levels using tinyML and computer vision

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — May 6th, 2022 The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has drawn attention to how clean our indoor environments are, and by measuring the CO2 levels within a room, infection risks can be approximated since more CO2 is correlated with poor ventilation. Software engineer Swapnil Verma had the idea to use computer vision to count the number…… Continue reading Estimating indoor CO2 levels using tinyML and computer vision

This gyroscopic stabilizer aims to reduce boat roll in waves
