This instructable will show you how to make an electronic dice with minimal experience using 7 LEDs, resistors, jumper wires, and of course the arduino (or arduino clone). I wrote this instructable for anyone to easily follow along and learn more about the arduino. Questions are welcome and will be answered as soon as possible. For less experienced users the code for the arduino is in “longhand” and several comments are included for better understanding of the code being uploaded into the arduino.

I used a ST7565 GLCD (Graphic Liquid Cristal Display) screen to display the live analog readings from an Arduino.

This project is about a quiz game that delivers electric shocks. It’s Flash based and uses an Arduino to control the hardware.
By now, maybe you are wondering: “What’s a Q&D-Poor man’s-Skinner-Sadist-Jeopardy game?, do I need one?, is it for me?” well, if you are ready to start an epic journey to the world of power, irresponsibility and electronics to create a device capable of make the players learn something by the always effective power of pain and shame… you might be ready to receive the knowledge.

This guide will take you through the steps to build an NES playing robot.
This is an arduino based bot which can play back tool assisted speedruns on the NES. If you’ve ever seen the “Super Mario Bros 3 beat in 11 minutes” video, think that, but being played back on the actual console. This bot can only handle the original Super Mario Bros currently, but it can beat it completely.

Build yourself a wirelessly controlled, Arduino-powered message board!
Here’s an easy project which creates a wirelessly programmable message board. It uses XBee modules to provide a wireless serial link between your computer and the device. You interact with it via a simple menu system. There are no buttons (other than the reset button, which is hidden) on the device.

Wise time with Arduino: First release of the Wise Clock 3 software: [via]
The routine work of porting the “Wise Clock 2″ code to the new “platform” (namely the new 3216 bicolor display) went well. Most of features worked right off the bat. Some coordinates had to be adjusted in order to center the text (time etc) on the larger display. These adjustments could have been avoided if the original code used calculations starting from X_MAX and Y_MAX. Ideally, just by changing these two values, the code should have worked.

Asteroids running on Hackvision. Written completely with Arduino:
I implemented Asteroids for Hackvision, written completely using Arduino technology. The ATmega328 is more than powerful enough for real arcade action!

Embedded Newbie has compiled a list of Arduino DAC solutions. [via]
I was in a need of an analog output output for my Arduino, and I found quite many different digital-to-analog converter (DAC) solutions by googling around. So finally I decided to gather them on one page as a reminder for myself and a guide for others. So here it comes!

The flow sensor uses a simple rotating wheel that pulses a hall effect sensor. By reading these pulses the Arduino mathematically calculates the liquid flow with a 3% accuracy rate and sends the reading via serial to the PC. Schematic and Arduino source code included.
