Top 10 Kickass Arduino Projects

The Arduino is a cheap electronics board that allows you to make your own electronics without a ton of coding experience. We love the Arduino, but like any electronics project, coming up with ideas for what to build is tough. Whether you’re just looking for inspiration or just need a place to start, let’s take a look at ten of the coolest Arduino projects.


Build A Simple, Photo Snapping Alarm System With An Arduino

Video: Alarm systems are complicated affairs. However, if you’re just looking to catch a sandwich thief at work or a cat spilling over all you water bottles, then Make shows you how to build an alarm system with an Arduino and a USB camera.


Add HUD-Like Display Gauges To Action Camera Videos With The 'Blackbox'

If you enjoy filming your adrenaline-infused adventures with an action camera, this data logging “blackbox”can record real-time data and then display it on your videos in post-production editing.


Arduino IDE Now Supports Building Software In The Command Line

For all its geeky attributes, the Arduino development software, known as Arduino IDE (integrated development environment) has never had a tool for compiling code in the command line. Now, with the release of Arduino IDE 1.6.6, it does.


Build An Genuino-Powered Music Visualizer

If you long for the days of pixely music visualizers, then look no further than this guide from Adafruit to make your own tiny little spectrum visualizer using a Genuino.


Prop Up A Dev Board With Rubber Feet To Cut Down On Erratic Behaviour

Working with a dev board, whether it’s a Genuino, Raspberry Pi, or whatever else, is all kinds of fun, but one problem is you’re usually working with the board just sitting on a table. Make shows off a simple way to add rubber feet to improve that experience.


Add Voice Control To Electronics With A Raspberry Pi And Arduino

Ever wanted the ability to yell at your electronics? Over on Make, they show you how to add commands to electronics, including a Roomba, Philips Hue, and a few other things.


Build A Simple Door Detector With IFTTT Alerts Using A Genuino

One of the essential parts of any home security system is a door detector that lets you know when a door opens. Over on Adafruit, they show you how to build your own that hooks into IFTTT so you can be alerted any way you like when the door opens.


Build Your Own Tiny, Automatically Updating Weather Display

Want to install a cool little digital weather display in your house but don’t want to spend much money? Over on Adafruit, they show you how to build one using a few cheap components.


Be Like Ahmed By Building One Of These Awesome Electronics Projects

You’ve undoubtedly heard about Ahmed Mohamed, a high school student who was arrested for bringing a clock he built to school, to share with his teachers and classmates. Don’t let this discourage you. Build stuff.
