The Button 64 Shield is an Arduino shield to which you can connect up to 64 buttons. We had a customer inquiry as to whether or not the Button 64 Shield could be used with an Arduino Leonardo so that it could operate as a standard USB HID to work like a keyboard or game-controller. Great question! Turns… Read More »
Oftentimes we get approached to help with a project, and sometimes we are given the mandate to ‘Make Something Awesome’. Here is one of those times. For CBC’s game show “Canada’s Smartest Person” we were contracted to create an on-set prop that is actually a functioning music guessing device. The purpose of this, is to test ones musical… Read More »
I was working on an Arduino style project the other day and needed just a couple of more pins. I really didn’t want to add any extra circuitry to the project so I looked at the Atmega328 and wondered how I could get more pins out of it. Then it dawned on me, simply remove the crystal and… Read More »
DKKAI Roadie, originally uploaded by Spikenzie. The DKKAI has a two row connector on board designed for expansions. Here we are working on a prototype of the “DKKAI Roadie”. With the Roadie, your can change the midi notes associated with each drum head completely ‘on the fly’. No need to edit the sketch, recompile & upload. The changes… Read More »
Jonathan Oxer has put together the most complete and detailed listing of Arduino Shields to date. Over 100 and counting. Take a look here Shieldlist.Org Well Done Jonathan!
Dexter created this really cool automated chip programmer. I’d love to hear them all spinning, and lifting up those chips.
