Hot wheels speed sensor

I built a Hot Wheels toy car track speed sensor using Arduino and metal detector. The main processing unit is Arduino Uno + sensor shield on top of it.  The display is cheap LCD display that connects to I2C. The sensor is metal detector kit I tested and converted to Arduino sensor in Metal detector

Arduino black ABS case

There are many different cases for Arduino.  Black ABS Protective Case For Arduino UNO R3 is an interesting plastic case for Arduino. The interesting feature in it is that it is designed to be compatible with LEGO blocks. It means that the case can be easily used in LEGO building projects. This is a reasonably

Arduino UNO transparent case

I wanted to have a protective case for Arduino. I got this cheap (less than $2) Transparent Acrylic Shell Box For Arduino UNO R3 Module Board. Everything was packages to this small plastic bag. After installing eight screws and protective films from the plastic parts, everything was ready. I must admit that it takes some

Arduino Blog » You can now use Arduino to program Linux IoT devices

https://blog.arduino.cc/2018/03/13/you-can-now-use-arduino-to-program-linux-iot-devices/ Arduino Create users can now manage and program a wide range of popular Linux SBCs like the UP² board, Raspberry Pi, and BeagleBone. Today, at Embedded Linux Conference 2018, Arduino announced the expansion of the number of architectures supported by its Arduino Create platform for the development of IoT applications. With this new release,

Radar motion detector

I needed a motion detector for Arduino. I saw a cheap Microwave Radar Induction Switch Human Motion Sensor Module at DX (similar also available at Banggood at pack of 5). It advertises High Sensitivity for Arduino, Long Sensing Distance, Wide Sensing Angle for Detecting Moving Objects. Using this is a microwave sensor module that specifically

Metal detector kit converted to Arduino sensor

I got a cheap DIY Metal Measure Kit Electronic DIY Soldering Exercise Board with the following specifications: Model: MDS-60 Working voltage: DC3-5V Standby current: ≤ 5mA Working current: ≤40mA Measure depth: ≤ 60 mm Measure alarm mode: sound, light PCB size: 86 x 61mm There was a just the circuit board and some components on

Should I Create a Proof-of-Concept Prototype for My New Product?

https://predictabledesigns.com/faq-should-i-create-a-proof-of-concept-poc-prototype-for-my-new-product/ As the name implies, the purpose of a proof-of-concept (POC) prototype is to prove your product concept. A POC answers if a product is feasible. In most cases a POC prototype is only used internally to determine the practicality of a new product. Customers will rarely see a POC prototype. So do you need

From Arduino Prototype to Manufacturable Product – Hackster’s Blog

https://blog.hackster.io/from-arduino-prototype-to-manufacturable-product-cbfa533a7702 Creating a prototype based on an Arduino is an excellent start to bringing a new electronic hardware product to market. The Arduino is almost an ideal platform for proving your product concept. However, there is still a lot of engineering work required to turn it into a product that can be manufactured and sold.
