Description: To make a circuit using an Ultrasonic sensor and Arduino which indicates the object in front by producing a beep sound.

This circuit can act as a smart blind stick if fitted onto a stick. The frequency of the beep sound increases as the stick comes closer and closer to the obstacle. Also, Circuit has an LDR to sense the light intensity and an RF remote to locate Stick remotely.

The ultrasonic sensor is the heart of this Arduino-based Alarm stick. It senses the distance from the obstacle and sends this data to Arduino. Arduino further processes this data and thus determines the frequency with which the buzzer produces sound.

Components required:

  • Arduino Board
  • Ultrasonic Sensor HC-SR04
  • Buzzer and LED
  • Voltage Regulator L7805
  • LDR
  • 433 MHz transmitter and receiver
  • Perf Board

Coke Piano and Launchpad made with Arduino

Description: These Coke are not for sale! You can play any song in a loop using these Coke cans.

As stated by Lucas Zanella:

“The hardware (the protoboard with the Arduino and components) is made of lots of transistors for ‘body signal’ amplification, so the coke when touched activates the corresponding transistor (BC548B NPN). These cokes are plugged in directly to the transistor’s base using a wire. Arduino then reads the data and sends it via serial to the python script.”
