Sparkfun & Arduino announced today the new Arduino Pro ($20) and Arduino Pro Mini ($19), two 3.3V “low-cost, low-profile boards intended for advanced users and for convenient embedding in long-term projects”. The Arduino Pro is shield compatible (but 3.3v, beware) and includes a connector for lithium ion batteries. The Arduino Pro Mini is well….mini at… Read more »
In a previous post I reviewed the Arduino Diecimilla and some of its shields. The Diecimilla and its proto-shield provide us with a great sandbox for experimenting with basic circuits on a mini-breadboard. If you can leverage some of its shields to provide additional functionality you don’t want to have to implement yourself (GPS, SD… Read more »
As I read blogs and articles about DIY electronics projects, I learn about gizmos that I want to gain first hand knowledge on. One such are small LCD screens (not monitors !) which are available from many vendors. Following the Arduino tutorial, I discovered that many require up to 11 pins on the Arduino. Sparkfun… Read more »
I have been playing with Arduinos for a few months but I am far from being an expert. However, I thought it’d be interesting to provide a quick review and guide on the different boards out there and what they’re good for. If you don’t know what an Arduino is, make sure you read my… Read more »
Just received the two Stickduinos I had ordered. Not sure what I am going to do with them just yet but they look like a great way to build a USB HID device
The Arduino Starter Pack from Adafruit is really pretty cool. It provides a really nice starting point for open source hardware hacking. In addition to the main Arduino Diecimila board, the starter pack includes a few components to play with (resistors, push buttons, LEDs, …) as well as a protoshield to start prototyping with the… Read more »
I am not much for DIY, home projects. I am still struggling with putting curtains up in my TV room. However, while casually browsing different sites (including Make) I discovered the Arduino board, an easy to use electronic kit based on a powerful Microcontroller that spawned a family of companion products. This ecosystem makes it… Read more »
At home in Provence for a few days, I decided to code a few things. Here is one, a statistics page for my gallery, powered by ZenPhoto, which shows a few different charts such as this one: I am using the rather new Google Chart API to generate the charts.
So one interesting thing to look at with Mint or any other site traffic analytics application is where traffic comes from. A lot of it comes from searches and a popular one here is “Open Source SIP client for Mac OS X”. That’s something I was researching when I was interviewing for a startup a… Read more »
