Here is a great database of Arduino shields that gives you pin usage details for 285 shields from 114 makers! This list makes sure you can look at the compatibility of shields and it also lists the actual licences the shield developers use. It is quite confronting to see that the majority of the shield […]

In my search for up-to-date tutorials on connecting sensors to Processing I found a few valuable threads. They are clear, the code is GPL, the aesthetics are – well I guess not my taste – but opinions are very easy to get by – good tutorials – less easy to find (=a critical compliment). Jeremy […]

For quite a few of the Ellentriek#11 projects, participants wanted to connect Arduino to the main current system: 220 Volt. As this can be tricky, it’s good to look for solid solutions. I have found a relay set-up which is safe to use with 220 volt and arduino (yeay!). This is the little board: http://www.sparkfun.com/products/9096 […]

I want to visualize some date from real world sensors to my computer – they are self-made variable resistors.  For this I need to flash software on the Arduino chip, have the right libraries and use particular sketches in Processing. Before you get to the Processing software part, you need to install Arduino. The instructions […]
