A carbon fiber bike filament winder controlled by Arduino
Bryan Kevan wanted to build his own bicycle, but wasn’t satisfied with purchasing a frame—or even ready-made tubing. He instead chose to create the frame from raw strands of carbon fiber.  The overall bike build is shown here, which necessitated him designing a variety of jigs, including a CNC wrapping machine. His device uses an […]

It then […]

While he could have started off small, Switzer chose to instead create his own player piano system, completing it at a cost of around $650. While the details of the project aren’t explicitly spelled […]

Hunt the Wumpus comes to Arduino!
Hunt the Wumpus is a text-based survival/horror game developed in 1973. As such, it’s perhaps due for an update, and Benjamin C. Faure was able to do so using an Arduino Mega to run a graphical version on an 8×8 MAX7219 LED display. The game consists of moving your character through the 64-LED randomly generated […]
