This little sensor looks an awful lot like the popular DHT11/DHT22 temperature and humidity sensors, but unlike classic DHT sensors, it has an I2C interface! That's right, you do not need to use a bit-bang timing-specific protocol to talk to the AM2320, it uses plain-old-I2C. Whew, that makes things a little easier, doesn't it?
This guide will show you how to use CircuitPython and your Circuit Playground Express to make an interactive lamp, by using movement to change color settings and modes, or changing it up from across the room with an IR remote. You'll learn how to use different code concepts to make this happen. Lamp it up and have fun!
This is a tutorial on how to cast low-temp metal alloys using 3d printed molds. The process involves common tools and supplies - a 3d printer, silicone rubber, a hot plate, stovetop casting alloy, and a dollar store skillet. I used this process to generate locking plates for my Flat-Pack camera arm, but the same method can be used to cast more than metals - anything from chocolate to plastic, with the accuracy only limited to the precision and resolution of your printer.
We love some good LED blinking as much as the next person but after years of LED-soldering we need something cooler to get us excited. Sure there are RGB LEDs and those are fun too but what comes after that? Well, we have the answer: LED Strips! These are flexible circuit boards with full color LEDs soldered on. They take a lot of LED-wiring-drudgery out of decorating a room, car, bicycle, costume, etc. Here is a quick tutorial on how to get an LED strip working with an Arduino.
