Arduino and a MMA7455 accelerometer

The MMA7455 accelerometer is a fairly low cost sensor that can measure acceleration in three axes. This sensor is commonly available as a breakout...

Arduino and an IR reciever

This is a quick example showing how to connect an IR Reciever. Most of these work the same way, they require Vcc(5v), GND and...

Arduino Clock

In this example we will experiment with a DS1307 breakout, a keypad/LCD shield and an Arduino. We will create a simple clock example. The DS1307...

Arduino and PIR detector

When you are looking for low cost sensors to begin experimenting with then a PIR is a nice low cost option. In the following...

Arduino and common anode 7 segment LED display

This example shows how to drive a seven segment display, this is the most basic example in which we use various digital pins as...

Web Server and BMP085 example

We bought an ethernet shield for our Arduino's and were wondering what sort of project could we do, we could have just made one...

We have a few examples of using the LOL Shield to produce some pretty patterns but how about a basic game, in this case...

Arduino and Nokia Colour LCD shield

I recently bought a nice looking shield for experimenting with, it was based on a Nokia LCD, I believe is used in the Nokia...

Arduino and LDR example

In this example we show how you connect a photoresistor to an Arduino, the value read from the photoresistor corresponds to the amount of...

Arduino and multi-color LED example

This is part of a 37-1 sensor kit, this was a multi-colour LED that was in the kit. NOt much documentation but I wired...
