DIY vending machine using Arduino

Dejan Nedelkovski from HowToMechatronics illustrates a DIY vending machine using Arduino platform. The vending machine features four discharging units controlled via four continuous rotation servo motors, a carrier system controlled via stepper motors, an LCD, four buttons for selecting an item and a coin detector. You can watch his build process in the following video.

Arduino powered weather station

Arduino powered WiFi weather station

This Instructables describes how to build a complete WiFi enabled weather station using Arduino and ESP8266 along with a bunch of sensors that collect environment data like temperature, humidity, wind speed, pressure, UV level, and rain. The location weather station is the most important part of installation. If weather station is located under a tree or an overhang, the rainfall data measured by the station will not be correct. If you place your weather station in an alley, you could very well get a wind tunnel effect on the anemometer, resulting in erroneous wind data. Weather station should have good “fetch”, or

Arduino midi controller

Midi controller using Arduino

An Arduino powered midi controller project for music makers. This my first arduino (microcontroller) project. I want to learn arduino with a usefull and large project. I decided to make a midi DJ controller that have all the functions needed to be standalone to mix. Every kind of sensor (potentiometer, push button,…) can be learn independantly and I think the best way is to learn “how it works” and “how it is connected” for each sensor step by step.

Arduino Pocket Tetris

Pocket Tetris project

A portable pocket Tetris project using ATTiny85 and SSD1306 based OLED screen by dombeef. This project originally was meant as a fathers day gift for my tetris-loving father, and I felt like it should be available for others if they want to make a pretty small tetris clone. This was the smallest I could make it with a big enough battery and a thick durable 3d printed housing. I modified tetris code created by Andy Jackson to be used with 3 buttons, since his original code was made for the AttinyArcade platform that has 2 buttons.
