Program And Customise Your Vibrator With An Arduino

Some vibrators do nothing but buzz. Fancier models may have different vibration patterns, but if you really want to experiment — and test out your programming chops — you can create your own vibration patterns with an Arduino.

Lifehacker veterans should be familiar with the Arduino: it’s a small microcontroller that’s really useful for electronics project. The Arduino is great for home automation and tweaking your gadgets — including, yes, vibrators.

For this project you’ll need a (good) vibrator, an Arduino, and the HackOff, a tiny board that connects the two together. It’s a pretty simple project. As we’ve said before, it’s really easy to get started with Arduino, especially if you have someone’s code to build from.

Check out the video above to see it in action and hear more about what it can do (and its limitations), or see the full guide at the link below.
