There are many feats of learning Arduino. Besides plugging in your board and downloading the “blink” sketch, it’s important to learn more about digital inputs. The epitome of digital inputs is push buttons. Push buttons are used for a variety of applications to trigger events. In this tutorial, we’re going to explore how to record […]
I am back again with a simple electronics tutorial for beginners. In this post, I will show you how to get started with the Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) 4.0 module to control LEDs. This project can be adapted to also control relays or robots. BLE is not like normal HC05/06 modules, because it works on […]
In this tutorial, I will share with you how to make a smart robotic arm. You can control this arm using a “Master” arm using potentiometers. The “Slave” arm is comprised of servos and will run off of the potentiometer readings. This will mimic manual movements. Along with this feature, the prototype is also smart […]
If you’re a creative person like me, then you’re probably curious what tools I use in my robotics projects. In this article, I’m going to share with you seven of my favorite tools that can help you build a prototype. These tools will help you become more productive and allow you to focus on making. […]
A few weeks ago, I was asked to review a new electronics kit by the startup, MakeXchange, out of Chicago, IL. In this article, I’m going to speak to the benefits and drawbacks of this kit, as well as who it’s for, and where you can get yours. Let’s dive into this MakeXchange Inventing with […]
Blinking LED’s is a staple example of beginner Arduino programming. In this tutorial, we’re going to step it up a notch and use both arrays and the random() method to determine which LED to turn on and off for a duration. Materials for Random LED project Arduino Uno (or similar controller) Breadboard 4X LED’s in […]
Welcome back, Learn Robotics family! This week’s article is about circuits and electronics lessons for grades K-4. A lot of what I do is work with schools to create robotics, electronics, & STEM programs for K-12 education. One of the most common problems I see is a lack of electronics or circuitry classes. I think […]
