  2. Awesome Model Rocket Launcher

    In Progress…

    I never got to build my own model rockets as a kid. It’s surprising really, since I spent a lot of time launching far less flight-worthy objects through the air with ridiculous feats of garage chemistry. Remember this was before the days of YouTube (*sigh*, amateurs). So when I ordered a pair of model rockets for my nephews I was undoubtedly more excited than they were.

    Arduino BluetoothMost premade bluetooth modules for Arduino, particularly in proper shield form, can be pretty expensive for just kicking around on the workbench. This turned out to be a pretty easy alternative that’s also relatively inexpensive.

    I decided I need a patio light for evenings spent hanging out on the balcony. A proper lantern would have been a bit much, and a flashlight wasn’t quite what I was looking for. So with an old mason jar, four LED’s and resistors, and a spare atmega chip sitting on the bench, I decide to just slap one together.

  5. Arduino GPS – On the Cheap

    I had an old USB GPS puck sitting around and wondered if I could make it play nice with the Arduino. Of course, there are easier modules (including this one in serial) that can be found elsewhere for a few dollars more. But assuming you have this one, it can be done.
