arduino???

Postby 1slipperyfish » Fri Nov 13, 2009 9:30 am

hi
has anyone used this??
i'm thinking of investing in some and was wondering is it any good? people are always making cool things on indistructables with it and i thought i would give it a go, but i'm not sure what to buy(which bits) and thought someone here might know
thanks

yes
For certain you have to be lost to find the places that can't be found. Elseways, everyone would know where it was

Ok that wasn't very helpful...

Never mind

I have one (works with winblob and linux)

I got a starters kit (from somewhere in italy i think...) but there are loads out there.
eg http://www.oomlout.co.uk/arduino-c-65.html

Just make sure it comes with a breadboard (a (mostly) white thing with lots of holes in), some wires and different components. There are lots of tutorials on the arduino website and you can always buy more as you go along.

Was that a statement or a question? :?

I get 24 hits, not including this thread, if I type "arduino" in the search field. What were you typing in? adruoni? audrion? :roll:

Try:
    * Issue 107 - Tutorial: Arduino: An LED light meter - In the final part of our series, we look at building a light sensor. (Graham Morrison)
    * Issue 106 - Tutorial: Arduino: make a drum kit - Like Leo Fender, Robert Moog and Leon Theremin, Graham has taken the complicated and made it look easy - with an Arduino-powered drum machine. (Graham Morrison)
    * Issue 105 - Tutorial: Arduino: Add a score counter - Part 3: Before we move on to other hackery, we've got a project to finish. Let's complete our Simon-like game by adding a score indicator. (Graham Morrison)
    * Issue 104 - Feature: Arduino hardware hacking - Part 2 - The game we built last month was silent, so now we'll start generating audio with an Arduino board and a speaker. (Graham Morrison)
    * Issue 103 - Feature: Hardware hacking revisited - Thanks to overwhelming popular demand, our hardware hacking feature is back. Here's a Simon-type game using the Arduino and a few LEDs. (Graham Morrison)
    * Issue 100 - Feature: Hardware hacking made easy - Any old geek can program software, but it takes some serious commitment to computers to want to program hardware. We show you how to get started with the Arduino board... (Paul Hudson)

can do but with a bread board you can take it apart easily again. Also saves on solder! But if you wanted to make a permanent board then you would solder.

Can do what ever you want though!

Hi 1sf (troll)...

You never cease to amaze me! :-O :/

I use Arduino, it has also been in the mag`.

Saerch the LXF forums under "arduino" and you may be
surprised.

Search AMINET for arduino and all my stuff, ONLY, appears...

I like accessing it through STANDARD Python...

It`s a little more tricky than accessing via classic AMIGAs,
WinUAE and Windows but hey, not it`s impossible.
73...

I don't know if there's some kind of Wigan-only inflation going on, but Linux Format is £6.49.

Either that or your newsagent thinks you're so gullible that he can bump up the prices on everything when you get to the till :-)

You'll also find a good few Arduino projects here: http://www.evilmadscientist.com/index.php?topic=Projects :)

You'll have to hunt through the pages, but they are there :P
