This is a simple USB temperature probe that uses the AVR USB library by Objective Development (http://www.obdev.at/avrusb/). It is in large part built upon the EasyLogger example by Christian Starkjohann. Whereas EasyLogger would send the data values over a keyboard interface, this project uses a custom device class and reads values using the ruby-usb library.

dangerousprototypes.com took the next-gen USB IR Toy v1.1 circuit and rearranged into a through-hole PCB. It’s the basic Infrared Toy with a couple additions:

  • Raw infrared signal detector for frequency measurement
  • Breakout area with all the unused pins, tap in and do something interesting

Check out the design on the link below.

This is a high tech Business Card that you plug directly on USB. There is a ATtiny85 microcontroller on the business card that becomes an USB keyboard pre-programmed to type out text when it detects that CAPS-LOCK has been pressed a few times. V-USB is used so that the ATtiny85 microcontroller can become an USB keyboard.

This project is a portable USB charger that uses a high efficiency switching regulator that runs at 85 – 94% efficiency depending on input voltage and load. It takes an input voltage from 8 to 16 volts and can run from anything from a 9 volt battery to a car battery. It also has 2 USB ports and easily charges 2 power hungry devices at once.

This project is a USB IR remote controller for your PC. This receiver is based on PIC18F2455 and is plug and play. It receives, decodes signals from a remote control and emulates the received signals as keystrokes in a keyboard. It is recognized as a USB keyboard. It is compatible with Sony SIRC 20 bit protocol,works with LG and SKY universal remotes when they are configured as Sony DVD. [via]
