Arduino and NanoNote… [via]

David Reyes, aka Tuxbrain, one of the Arduino distributors in Spain, has just brought to life one of the coolest hacks I have seen for some time. He managed to reflash Arduino Uno from a Ben NanoNote. He has implemented a text-based IDE that can reflash the boards directly from the NanoNote without using external power. If you want to have a device to reprogram your ATmega processors without having to bring your computer around, this can be a great solution. Just remember, this is an advanced hack, you should be familiar to the use of CLI (Command Line Interface), but David has promised taking a look at Qt-creator and put together a small text editor with uploading capabilities. Stay tuned at Tuxbrain’s development website!

Winfred, who is a Windows Systems Administrator, shows us a project for adding sound to a motorcycle using the Adafruit Wave Shield.

On a beautiful day I was thinking, wouldn’t it be cool if other devices also had start-up and shutdown tunes, just like your computer? For example, your TV, your car or your motorcycle? Since I was looking for a simple project to that uses an Arduino microcontroller, I decided to add the Windows XP Startup and Shutdown sounds to my BMW F650.

Another great arduino project builds an electric Ethch a Sketch. The mechanics are drop dead simple along with the electronics so this is a great project for anyone just starting with the arduino. The project write-up has all the details you’d need to build your own, schematics and software included. [via]

Interrupts – An extremely useful, yet often feared element of microprocessors. Interrupts allow you run a program, while still being able to react to asynchronous input from the outside world. On many platforms then can be confusing to implement, but the arduino makes it easy!

Jim Kelly, who did such a bang-up job of documenting his way through all of the experiments in our Make: Electronics book is now doing the same thing with Michael McRoberts’ Beginning Arduino. [via]

Hello everybody!!!
I have been messing around with a few components and my arduino. I figured out this project last week and just had to share it with all of you. What it is, is a laser beam hitting a photo cell. The arduino reads the photo cell and when it detects the voltage level is below a certain amount, the beam must be broken while sounding an alarm. The alarm stays on until you punch in the code you have set up to the keypad in. Once the correct code is typed in, the arduino turns of the buzzer and gives you 15 seconds ( or what ever you set the delay time to) to reset the laser beam. You are able to change the code if you like. The steps are very easy to follow and i hope everyone makes one!!!

This project (from Teague Labs) was intended to study the usage of water for various purposes and how this information could affect behaviors of persons using water when displayed on real time. The water meter sensor used in this project is INS-FM17N from Koolance. The sensor is directly interfaced to an Arduino that acquires and send data to a web server to make it available online. [via]

MAKE is holding a drawing for a Getting Started with Arduino Kit. To be eligible for this drawing, all you have to do is tell them why you want to learn Arduino and maybe what projects you might like to do with it. Eligible entries will end at 11:59 PST, Tuesday March 15th, 2011. Good luck! [via]

Using the Arduino development platform you will learn how to display numbers and letters on a single 7-segment LED display. There are many ways to drive 7-segment displays — this is a fairly simple method.
