Game Machine

We found a little game project online, and with it being open-source, realised we could make our own version of it using duinotech parts. Even better, there's already a heap of games that have been created.

LED Christmas Tree

Here's a good project for a beginner, which can add a bit of Christmas spirit to your workbench, and also teach you how multiple LED's can be controlled from a handful of microcontroller pins. Being Arduino based, the LED Christmas Tree can also be customized to your liking.

Snake Game

Here's the first of our mini projects that you can build from parts in the XC3900 kit. It's a take on the old 'Snake' game that you might have seen on old Nokia phones or even earlier on Atari.

Tiny85 Game

We're glad we've got the ATTiny85 IC, because now we can build some really tiny projects. Inspired by Dombeef's pockeTETRIS game, we set about building our own version, and even creating a new game that runs on the same hardware.

LED Christmas Tree with Music

One of the ideas that sprung to mind when we first got in the XC4380 LED Strip Module was that it would be great for displays like Christmas lights. With Christmas on the way, we’ve turned them into a miniature Christmas tree complete with music playing from an SD card. Add a little bit of Christmas to your desk or workbench! Some soldering needed.

Metronome

We usually think of soldering irons, pliers and oscilloscopes when we think of electronic tools, and while this project may not be useful to the electronics enthusiast, we think it's a good way of showing how Arduino based tools can be useful in other fields- in this case for musicians.

Android Picture Frame

There's not a lot to construct in this project- it's just an Uno and LCD Touch Shield, but if you want a simple project that looks slick, then it's a good place to start.

Wireless Garden Monitor

Here's a project that uses two Arduino boards to communicate wirelessly- the first Arduino reads a soil moisture sensor and a temperature and humidity sensor, and sends the data to a second Arduino that displays the data in a graph and text.
