Arduino ESP8266 Tutorial: Send an email easily with your Wemos D1 board using a PHP script!

educ8s.tv uploaded a new tutorial on their youtube channel.

In this video we are going to learn how to send email using an ESP8266 based board like the Wemos D1. As you are going to find out it is very easy and it won’t take us more than 10 minutes.

Having a WiFi enabled board, like the ESP8266 enable us to do many more things. I wanted to learn how to send emails from the Wemos Board in order to get reports from my projects to my email account easily. As you are going to find out, it is very easy!

I have built a simple project in order to demonstrate what I mean. I have connected a DHT22 temperature and humidity sensor, and when the project boots up, it measures the temperature and the humidity and sends the data to my email address! This functionality can be very useful in some projects. As you are going to find out is very easy add such functionality in your Arduino projects. But let’s see how to build this project.

Arduino 50V digital Voltmeter using MAX7219

FZDFEVDIQK3QS5F.MEDIUM

M.Pugazhendi build a digital voltmeter using Arduino and MAX7219 display driver.

The Arduino inbuilt 10 bit ADC, can be used for constructing / measuring the 0Volt to 50Volt Digital Volt Meter. Popular MAX7219 display driver, connected with Arduino Uno will be used for displaying the measured voltage. This voltmeter can read only DC voltage.

TEA5767 FM Radio With Digital Volume control

F9O5RKQIQK3SEUY.MEDIUM

niq_ro @ instructables.com show us how to build a FM radio using Arduino and TEA5767 module.

This version of FM radio with TEA5767 with digital volume use Arduino Uno development board instead Arduino Mega like in previous artilce.

Digital volume in 15 steps is made with MCP4261-502E/P dual digital potentiometer who work as real potentiometer (logarithmic style)…

3D printing tool is all-in-one pen, precision solder, burner, and cutter

160715edne-edn-3dsimo2

Able to fit in the palm of your hand and provided with several changeable tips, the 3DSimo Mini allows you to 3D print using one of close to a dozen different materials as well as solder, burn, and cut foam.

“We created the 3DSimo Mini to be the ultimate creator’s tool,” says David Paskevic, CEO of 3DSimo. “It is more than a 3D printing pen. Immediate uses include extensions for burning, foam cutting, and soldering. In the future, we will incorporate additional functionality to the pen, such as drilling, making it a practical tool for creators of any skill set. The Mini is a tool that can be used for all creative projects.”

atsamd11c14 Arduino zero compatible ARM M0 compact usb stick:

DiXi is atsamd11c14 based development board.
Onboard button and 7 segment display … or RGB led … I am now more decided for display
– edge connector
– nice compact shape like my Picoduino

Arduino-compatible touch-enabled display shield from FTDI

160714edne-ftdi_cleo-press-image-new_lres
CleO is a simple to program, intelligent TFT display solution that allows the construction of human machine interfaces (HMIs) with – says maker FTDI chip – much higher performance than conventional Arduino display shields are able to deliver. by Graham Prophet [via]

FTDI first introduced its Arduino-compatible concept – aiming to reach a wider audience – by means of a crowdfunding exercise. The company now has full availability of the CleO product (and accompanying accessories) through its distribution partners, as well as directly via the company’s website. FTDI Chip will also give engineers complete access to a comprehensive development resource, which has step-by-step tutorials and projects, plus a series of software tools. In addition, a new forum has been set up ( www.CleOstuff.com) on which design tips, application ideas and other information can be shared.

Omniblox – Eagle BRD 3D viewer

omniblox

Omniblox is a very good 3D Eagle .brd 3D viewer created by Benjamin D. Richards and David ten Have, but some script knowledge is needed to use it.

Looking to render printed circuit boards (PCBs)? Look no further. This script loads and renders them visually using a .brd file created by CadSoft EAGLE (version 6.0 or later).

There are a number of ways to render PCBs, but this script visualizes them as THREE.js models.

We’re still working on this, so the script isn’t 100% accurate. With that in mind, it’s probably best to use this as a visualization aid only — so don’t use it for to build anything ‘mission critical’ (for now…). And we’ve done our best to flag stuff that needs sorting.
