Check out these Arduino projects built by our customers.  They range from data logging, to animatronic displays, to projects that mess with your cat.

I hope you’ll find the following projects as interesting as I do!

Teddy bear in box closing a switch sign on box reads "Flip switch to wake "Servo Bear"

Arduino Powered “Servo Bear” :: Student Project

If a bear says, “Leave me alone!”, you probably ought to get out of dodge, right? Well, Steve Busik (a customer of PEAs), thinks otherwise, and has created a fun project that allows you to mess with a bear. I think you’ll get a kick out of this project. And please, share this post with…

Arduino first press buzzer game :: Student Project

Jeopardy, The Price is Right,  Family Feud – who doesn’t love a good game show from time-to-time? Ever wonder how the buzzers in those game shows work?  One of our customers, Eleu Mangornong from Canada, wondered…and he was pretty sure he could make his own buzzer system with an Arduino. And that is just what he…

Arduino Mega on a wood job next to a grandfather clock pendulum

Measuring the time interval cycle for the pendulum on large grandfather clocks using Arduino :: Student Project

How fast does a clock tic toc? That’s what John Brigham wanted to figure out, so he used an Arduino and a very basic photo-interrupter circuit to measure it. Read more below about what inspired him to measure time intervals of grandfather clocks in the first place, and learn about how his Arduino project works.

Arduino RPM and Speedometer for Fast Bikes (or Cars) :: Student Project

The need for speed.  It’s been around for a long time… I remember reading Dead Souls by Nikolai Vasilievich Gogol, and being amazed by Chichikovs love of driving fast in a horse drawn carriage: “Selifan flourished his whip and shouted, “Hi, hi!” as the inequalities of the road jerked him vertically on his seat; and meanwhile,…
