Weekend Projects: Control Analog Servo Motors with Streams of Digital Data

analog, arduino, Featured, GreatCreate, RadioShack, servo, Weekend Projects Commenti disabilitati su Weekend Projects: Control Analog Servo Motors with Streams of Digital Data 

Create retro-looking dialplates to display streams of digital data from the Internet in just a few easy steps.Data Dial Dashboard joins our beginner-friendly electronics series, Weekend Projects, as a moderately difficult build. The case design and layout is fun and simple, made from balsa wood and uses ink or laserjet printouts for all the displays (or a laser cutter for those with access to one). Even the required soldering is nominal and pretty straightforward. The challenge then arises from what information to display, and how.

New Project: Data Dial Dashboard

analog, arduino, Featured, GreatCreate, RadioShack, Retro, Weekend Projects Commenti disabilitati su New Project: Data Dial Dashboard 

dials_detailThe Data Dial Dashboard brings back the fun of old-school analog dial gauges while updating them with internet connectivity. In this project we will use an Arduino, Ethernet shield, and 3 servos to create a system for tracking global earthquake activity. The data is pulled from the USGS Real-time Data Feeds page. With a little hacking, it is easily adapted to track your unanswered e-mail count, the speed of your internet connection, the price of rice in Rhode Island, or any other data you can scrape off the 'net!
