10 Basic Arduino Projects

Welcome to Arduino World!
The iHackRobot DIY Makers 

This is the iHackRobot Arduino and Android DIY makerspace. On this website, links, tutorials, codes, projects and apps that the author has developed are all provided here. Sketches and gadgets designed to control various arduino projects, including your car or any appliances in your house, using  a smartphone, tablet, bluetooth, Infrared, joystick, accelerometer, wifi, your webpage via the internet, voice recognition, and even by a watch are all open source. These projects are all supported with videos, source codes, schematics, and materials incorporated all together in one place for you to study, build and experiment. In addition, some generic apps are also provided free upon request. These apps can control any of your robotics projects using an android smatphone or tablet.

This is the prototype you will be using through out your first 10 basic Arduino projects.

This is an example of one of the many projects you will build and program using the prototype.

There are only 4 basic materials in our prototype: 
1. LEDs, 9 pcs 
2. Resistors, 9 pcs, 200 ohms 
3. connecting wires
4. Arduino UNO 

With all these 4 components, you will be building the following arduino projects:
1. The Blinking Red
2. Let There Be Lights: The Switcher
3. The Blinker: Blinking Lights
4. The Jumper : Jumping Lights
5. The Breaker: Dividing Lights
6. The Roller: Rolling Lights
7. The Knight Rider: Chasing Lights
8. Binary Counter: Counting Lights
9. The Tester: Testing Lights
10. Game of Logic: Thinking Lights

11.  Railroad Traffic Lights: Warning Lights 
12. Traffic Lights w/ Switch   
13:  Light Waves Symphony: Singing Lights
14. Binary Clock: Timing Lights
15. Serial Monitor: Hello My Hackspace World
16. Generating Tones
17. Painting Colours
18. Shrinktifing
19. Robotics ***
20 more iHackLab Building

*** Aside from the above arduino projects, you will also learn how to control a biped-robot (homodruino) remotely using the internet, your own website, via a wifi, an ethernet, a TV remote control, your computer monitor, your keyboard, your mouse, bluetooth, an iphone, an ipad, and even using your voice.

This is the actual diagram you will use all through out your 10 basic projects. There are no messy soldering and complex programming. From this setup, you will actually learn more than 20 projects, if and only if you will do all the interesting challenges provided in each lesson or tutorial. ;-)

The Blinking Red

The Blinker

The Chasing Colours

The Knight Rider

The Binary Counter

Aside from these 10 beginners projects, you will advance to more interesting fun creations like programming some stand alone chips that can be used in building robots, toys or gadgets. And finally, as the main objective of this site, we will build a Star Wars like Jedi training ball in the end and a self-conscious  robot as well. If you have made one of any of these projects, please share or post them on this blog. Thank you.
