Top 10 Arduino Projects To Make this year:

10. Arduino Against Piano Tiles:

Arduino playing piano tiles


To build a Robot that plays Piano Tiles, using LDR and Relay with Arduino UNO.

Yes, this circuit plays piano tiles on its own! Better than any human on earth. Sensors(LDR) attached to the screen senses the black tiles during gameplay and sends this info to the analog pin of Arduino in terms of Analog voltage. Arduino then activates the corresponding Relay, so that the coin connected in series with relay’s switch can hit the tile to score!                                 

Components you need for this project are:

1) Arduino Board

2)  LDR(Light dependent resistors) X 4

3) Connecting Wires

4) SPDT Relay X 4

5) Coins X 4

6) Breadboard

5. Coke Piano and Launchpad made with Arduino


 These Coke are not for sale! You can play any song in a loop through these Coke.

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.”
