    Every now and then, we find some cool stuff that we just absolutely have to try for ourselves. We found some work done by reddit user Nugetteero in this thread, which is comprised of some messy (but awesome and functional) code, and some components on a breadboard powered by an Arduino Nano. We love it, and we're surrounded by components that can be used to make it, so obviously we had to. Here's our version.

    In this tutorial, we will set up a door latch that can be opened with the swipe of an RFID Tag! We will program a list of acceptable 'key' cards that will unlatch the door for a specified amount of time. This is a really simple project, but it does require that you alter your door jamb, so be prepared to do some wood work if you the strike plate to fit securely and flush.

  • Desktop RoboTurret with Foam Dart Gun and Pixy

    mt_ignore
    Standalone
    With the Auto-Turret Project, you can automatically track down and fire upon your enemies! This project utilizes a Pixy camera module, a RobotGeek pan/tilt base, a foam dart gun, and a Geekduino to coordinate the components. The Pixy can be 'taught' to recognize different colors, and when it 'sees' an object with the matched color, it will send data to the Geekduino. The Geekduino will then move the pan and tilt servos so that the object is in the center of the Pixy's field of view. If the object stays still for too long, the foam dart gun will engage, firing a dart at the object! Read More

    In this project, we will be using the power of RFID to tap into your garage door opening system. We are going to bridge a connection in the opener switch via a RobotGeek Relay board, initiating the door opening as if you had pressed the button. This code will work for any digital output device (such as Relays, LEDs, buzzers and more.) Activating a solenoid or motor upon a read of the 'key' tag is the basic principal behind RFID enabled locks.

    The RFIDuino Login Project for Windows will allow you to use the RFIDuino system to log into Windows. You will need to load a special firmware onto your Geekduino/Arduino, and load the appropriate files onto your computer. Once setup, you can login to your computer from the main Windows Login screen by simply swiping your RFID tag across the RFIDuino antenna.

    This project will work with Windows Vista, 7, 8 and 10.

    Are you ready to add a little Arduino to your Halloween decorations? Using the RobotGeek Floor Mat Experimenter's Kit and a few extra parts and props you can automate scaring all your trick or treaters. This project will show you how to read from a Floor Mat Switch or PIR motion sensor and then activate a relay. You can activate a RobotGeek Relay to turn on DC devices like vibrating Halloween props and sirens, or you can use a PowerSwitch Tail to turn on AC loads like strobe lights, leaf blowers and boom boxes.

    Our examples are all Halloween themed, but these examples can be applied to a variety of projects like security systems, pranks, entry logging, and more.

    This Kit will require you to solder wires to the floor mat switch. You may also need to solder extensions depending on what kind of external device you are trying to control.

    Direct Control

    This page will show you how to wire up a Powerswitch Tail to a Floor Mat Switch. This will allow you to control 120v AC devices (up to 15A) froma Floor Mat Switch.

    This kit will allow direct control of an AC device. You will not be able to set delays, timings, or any other behavior - when the matt is pressed, the load will be activated. For examples of using the floor mat switch or powertail switch with a microcontroller, see out Halloween How-To guide.

  • Arduino Pump Tutorial - Aquarium Auto Refill

    mt_ignore
    Standalone
    This Arduino Pump Tutorial shows a simple example of how to use a float switch and RobotGeek Pumping Station to refill a reservoir once the level gets too low. For our example we use a small aquarium, but this same project could be used for pet dishes, water fountains, or any other number of similar applications. The Pumping Station is a RobotGeek kit which packages a small liquid pump and relay. To operate a pump using an Arduino microcontroller you need a relay to switch on and off a separate power supply.

    This Arduino Pump Tutorial is a Shotbot Project demonstrating an easy way to build a simple shot pouring robot. We use two RobotGeek Pumping stations and some quick code to create a dual shot pouring robot. This project uses buttons to trigger the pouring as a basic example, but the buttons could be replaced with more advanced sensors, such as switches, light sensors, or IR sensors.

  • Arduino Pump Tutorial - Sump Pump Project

    This Arduino Pump Tutorial shows an example of how to use a float switch, Powertail, and pump to create a sump pump system. When you want to operate larger pumps from an Arduino you need a stronger relay to handle the larger voltage and current. The PowerSwitch Tail is a perfect tool for the job. It incorporates the relay and outlet plugs all into one unit making it easy to turn on and off larger motors, fans, and pumps.

    This project is a great distraction for cats and people alike! Make your RoboTurret activate a laser and randomly move about! Cats just want to straight up do a murder on that little red laser dot. Hunting is great exercise for cats, and it's always amusing to watch them go on the attack! Sure you can just grab your laser pointer and go for it, but you always know where the laser is going to be. Let's inject a little chaos into the mix with a pan/tilt turret to make a laser that moves to random positions at random intervals!
