Arduino Voltmeter Prototype

FPE52T0IJHFDMVV.MEDIUM

Proto G @ instructables.com has build an Arduino based digital voltmeter that is able to measure up to 30V and it’s using an OLED LCD display.

In this instructable, I’ll show you how to make a simple arduino voltmeter. It can measure voltages in excess of 30VDC depending on how you configure it. The smaller the voltage range you want to measure, the more accurate that your meter will be. This project is going to be apart of a gauss meter that I am making to measure magnetic fields strength as well as magnetic field polarity

Smart Watch

image001

Matthew Filipek from Cornell Univercity has build a nice smart watch with 1.7 inch touch screen, SD card, Bluetooth module and various apps.

One of the main inspirations for this project was Jared Sanson’s implementation of a DIY smartwatch (REF 0). With several design iterations, he was able to produce a watch in a very small package that can communicate with a PC via USB HID, features an OLED display, and has support for an accelerometer. As my project was to be completed in the span of a mere month, several of the components I got were purchased for their ease of use rather than their compactness.

ESP8266 weather display – work in progress

00

Markus Hirsch is working on a ESP8266 weather display using an AVR mcu and an OLED display:

This is a little weather monitor. It has a 2.2″ color display and is powered by an AVR and the ESP8266. The AVR controles the display. The ESP has a custom firmware written in the Arduino IDE and provides all the weather data in a neat and very simple pre-parsed protocol. The AVR can obtain different data via a simple UART command. It is still in development. A 512kB serial SPI flash provides all the icons, images and palette data.

ATtiny OLED Watch Core

陳亮 @ instructables.com shows us his ATtiny85 OLED display build on a breadboard:

This instructable show how to use an ATtiny85 to create a tiny watch core that can run over 1 year before recharge or replace battery.

The instruction to make the watch case may be in next instructable.

I have made a few Arduino watch before, but I found the watch using ATmega boards or ATmega chips are a little bit too big to wear. So I would like to make it with a smaller chips.

Raspberry Pi Zero Information Display

IMG_0477-950x713

Frederick @ frederickvandenbosch.be has build an Internet connected OLED display using Raspberry Pi Zero module.

After last week’s Pi Zero mod, I thought I’d try a slightly more useful project. Using an Adafruit OLED display, two push buttons, a wifi dongle and a Pi Zero, I made an internet connected information display. The information could be anything: time and date, weather, social media status, etc … The two push buttons are used to cycle through the data and trigger certain actions.

deba168 @ instructables.com has build an ESP8266 based OLED display weather widget.

This is an ESP8266 based Weather Display unit which retrieve localized weather information from http://www.wunderground.com/ by WLAN and display it on a 128×64 OLED Display.

Arduino OLED Thermometer And Hygrometer With DHT11

F3KNHZSIFO75QNW.MEDIUM

KonstantinDimitrov @ instructables.com has build a Arduino based OLED Thermometer and Hydrometer using DHT11 sensor.

Hello, everyone ! Today I am going to show you how to make Arduino OLED thermometer and hygrometer* with DHT11.

The OLED we will use today is .96″ inch in size, features 128×64 pixels and uses the SPI Bus.

We will use the u8glib library to communicate with our display. This library has many available parameters(download it and unzip it at /Program Files(x86)/Arduino/Libraries).

ESP8266 Weather Station

WeatherStationV2

blog.squix.ch has published there code for a ESP8266 based weather station. More details here:

It is not yet working as smoothly as I want it to work but maybe some of you can help me getting rid of the nasty issues that were bugging me for the last few weeks. The README on github contains basic setup instructions and also the currently known issues. Please feel free to fix them and create pull requests to let them flow into the master branch.

Building a SmartWatch

Benjamin Blundell has been working on his DIY smart-watch:

I have an issue with smart-watches. Watches in general fall into one of two categories: a tool to tell the time, or a fashion statement. Increasingly, I believe the latter category is larger than the first. With the advent of the iWatch, Pebble and the like, fashion and making a statement has moved into technology. It’s not quite a new thing but nevertheless, it’s something I’m not too fond of. My solution? Make your own smartwatch.
There is a precedent for this. Steve Wozniack sports a pretty fly nixie tube watch which he made himself. It’s pretty cool, but also a statement of sorts too. I’ve been meaning to up my game with electronics anyway, so I’ve been working on a few initial prototypes.
