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!

stuffed rabbit with wires, Arduino nano, and PIR sensor

PIR activated noise making Arduino controlled Stuffed Rabbit :: Student Project

What better way to use your programming and electronics skills than to help out your grandkids?  Especially if it involves PIR sensors, an Arduino Nano, and fart noises? You heard me right, Ken Deakman, a customer of Programming Electronics Academy since late 2018, wanted to enhance a stuffed rabbit with some sensors so that it…

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,…

Plastic trident with LEDs

Arduino Controlled NeoPixel Trident :: Student Project

What better way to display your team pride than wielding a 6ft tall, NeoPixel blazing trident during the competition?  Especially if you’re a member of the FIRST FRC Team 4296 “Trident Robotics”! Mark Balla, a Mentor to the FIRST team, helped his team create this awesome Arduino controlled trident.   We asked Mark some questions…
