NJC’s MSP430 Launchpad blog presents the LaunchScope . Using no additional hardware beyond the Launchpad, this project includes code for both the MSP430 as well as PC client display software written in C#. [via]

I have used the transparent UART mode of the Bus Pirate to directly access the serial data and send it to other third party softwares to show my location on google maps.

The OBDuino is an in-car real-time display of various information, like speed, RPM, instant fuel consumption or average trip fuel consumption as well as others PIDs supported by the car. It reads the data from the car’s OBD-II connector, interfacing it via a MC33290 chip to the Arduino which processes the CAN data and outputs to a 2×16 LCD. [via]

This tutorial will describe a way of controlling an iPod remote, and thus, an easy way of getting some music and sound out of your Arduino project. The remote we used was an unofficial remote I found on the worldwide auction site for around 10 USD, an opto-isolator can be found in your local electronics store. [via]

This project is a frequency standard based on GPS signal that has the advantage of great stability.
Using the GPS Satellite system offers the advantage of very accurate timing and by extension, frequency control. The long term error is to all intents and purposes zero, with time and frequency accuracy being comparable to the international standard. The traditional route is to use a relatively low cost GPS receiver module which outputs a 1 Pulse per second signal (1 PPS) aligned to UTC.
