Prizes awarded to the top three Arduino projects. Projects will be judged by Shawn Augustson of ArduinoFun.com, Guilherme Martins of Guibot.net, Dr. Alison Colman of theFuseFactory.org, and we will also accept viewer submitted votes through Twitter
How to Enter: Contestants must create a project using the Arduino (any board). The project must be geared towards the beginner to intermediate user to help learn more about what the Arduino is and can do. Project can have already been submitted elsewhere, for example you already published it on another site like Instructables, etc.
Each project MUST HAVE the following in order to be considered:
Photo of the finished project
YouTube or other service video showing the project working
Step by step supporting documentation on how a user can complete your project
Arduino code used for project
List of sources used, for example if you borrowed ideas from another project on the web
(Optional) – Bonus points for adding a statement of what the Arduino has meant to you.
How to Submit Your Project: Send photos, documentation, links to your video and your arduino sketch pasted into a text file to shawn at arduinofun dot com. Projects will then be posted to ArduinoFun.com (you remain the project owner, we will not use projects in anything other than published to ArduinoFun.com)
POPUP is an Urban Art event realized by Hugo Israel, there will be installations, performances, sculptures, live music, illustrations and many other cool things. If you are near Lisbon you got to mark this spot on your agenda.
I am participating with Bruno Canas on two interactive video instalations. Will have more details soon ;)
I used the sound sensor I’ve done a few days ago and a little paper-boat + a servo and a box and this is the result :)
This how the puppet works:
A hole was digger on a card box, and the micro servo is glued to the box as you can see.
One piece of paper is glued to the servo horn, and this will make the puppet talk movement.
Another piece of paper is glued to the box and it will be fixed and hold the puppet.
This is how the puppet is glued to the paper supports. ;)
This is a fully functional version of the Arduino. We eliminated the PCB and use paper and cardboard as support and the result is.. the PAPERduino :D
This is the the first version of the layout design, next we will try more designs, and another materials. You just need to print the top and the bottom layout, and glue them to any kind of support you want. We hope that you start making your own boards. If you do, please share your photos with us, we would love to see them ;)
There is no USB direct connection, so to program the paperduino you will need some kind of FTDI cable or adapter. One of this products will be fine: FTDI cable from Adafruit Industries FTDI adapter from Sparkfun
1 x 7805 Voltage regulator
2 x LEDs (different colors)
2 x 560 Ohm resistors (between 220oHm and 1K)
1 x 10k Ohm resistor
2 x 100 uF capacitors
1x 16 MHz clock crystal
2 x 22 pF capacitors
1 x 0.01 uF capacitor
1 x button
1 x Atmel ATMega168
1 x socket 28 pin
Female and Male headers
Use a needle to puncture the holes for your components.
Don’t rush, place one component after another and do all the solder work carefully.
Follow the connection lines.
And this should be the final look of your paperduino connections.
This Tuesday AltLab had its first public session and we did a mini workshop on “paperduinos”, a new generation of cardboard arduinos. We had lots of fun and have many more ideas we’d like to try: different layouts, colored papers, and other materials. More info soon at AltLab.
