How To Play Your Favorite Melody with Arduino
Posted in Music
In this tutorial, I will discuss how make Arduino play your favorite melody.
Arduino Audio DAC Options

DAC is short for Digital to Analog Converter. In this article we play around the code Michael Smith created for a PWM based DAC
Using Relays with Arduino – Turning on the Lights

Microcontrollers are good at controlling small devices, but frequently we DIY-ers want to use them to control things that aren’t so micro. In this post I’ll talk about how to turn on household lights with the Arduino microcontroller.
Arduino - Knock Sensor

This tutorial shows you how to use a Piezo element to detect vibration, in this case, a knock on a door, table, or other solid surface.
LCD Modules
Posted in LCD
Tutorials for LCD Modules, what types of LCDs, what are their uses and how to hook them up on a breadboard.
LarryBot: Basic Arduino Robot
Posted in Robots
Nice easy way to build a basic and inexpensive Arduino powered robot with the benefit that I've made the mistakes already :)
Arduino based RFID Squeezebox Controller
Posted in RFID
Use an Arduino to control a Squeezebox device using RFID tags.
W6R Clock
Posted in Beginners
I started studying Arduino on March 2009 with Alex Posada at Hangar, Barcelona. During a three days intensive workshop in SonarMàtica (a part of the Sonar Festival, BCN), I conceived and realized this clock as gift for the marriage of my like-sister Sabrina, so it will live in Dettingen (Germany).
An RFID Cat Tracker
Posted in RFID
The CATaLOG project aims to track our two cats Bobbin and Tuffin as they go in and out of the house so we can see which cat spends more time outside, what their favorite time to go out is, and also get sent SMS messages if a cat goes missing for a certain amount of time.
Setting up an Arduino on a Breadboard
Posted in Other
This tutorial shows you how to build an Arduino compatible breadboard with an Atmel Atmega8/168 AVR microcontroller and FTDI FT232 breakout board from SparkFun.
Arduino Server/Service Monitor
Posted in Other
Mod a lava lamp with LED lights that display different colors for service up/down based on results of the ping request(s). The Arduino will display a green LED when the server is online or a red LED if the server is offline.
Control an iPod with the Arduino
Posted in Music
This tutorial will describe a way of controlling an iPod remote, and thus, an easy way of getting some music and sound out of your Arduino project.
Arduino Tutorial: Wiring up an LCD to an Arduino
Posted in LCD
This tutorial will show you how to wire a character parallel LCD to the Arduino.
Arduino XMAS hitcounter
Posted in Servos
It is a blog hitcounter, that rings a bell. Literally. It consists of an Arduino board, a bell, a servo and a couple of lines of code in c, python and php. Most parts are fairly common and should be easy to get.
Easy Arduino Robot Tutorial - Part I
Posted in Robots
In this tutorial you will see that you don´t have to be an electronic guru, or a super skilled programmer to make a simple, easy and funny robot.
Arduino Tutorial Lesson 2: Blink blink bLiNk BLINK
Posted in Beginners
OK you've gotten your Arduino set up and also figured out how to use the software to send sketches to the board. Next step is to start writing your own sketches. We'll start off easy by just modifying something that already works.
Arduino MIDI Drum Kit and Spooky Sound Trigger
Posted in Music
Turn an Arduino board and a few buttons and piezos into a MIDI drum kit or scary sound trigger.

Posted in Beginners
In this lesson we will begin with the most basic kind of input, a push-button switch!
Arduino Tutorial Lesson 4: Arduino grows up and learns to talk!
Posted in Beginners
In this lesson we'll learn how to use the Serial Library to communicate from the Arduino board back to the computer over the USB port.
Arduino Tutorial Lesson 3: Sketches, variables, procedures and hacking code
Posted in Beginners
OK you've gotten your Arduino set up and also figured out how to use the software to send sketches to the board. Next step is to start writing your own sketches. We'll start off easy by just modifying something that already works.
Arduino Tutorial Lesson 1: Let there be blink!
