What Does The Fox Say? (Arduino LCD Version)

So this week after completing the Arduino Starter Kit, Project 11: Crystal Ball with my Interactive Digital Media class, I was intrigued by the LCD screen and wondered how to create scrolling text. While the Liquid Crystal Library clearly documents the scrollDisplayLeft() function, this scrolls both lines simultaneously. So this …

Arduino Week 04

This week we started with Project 10: Zoetrope. Using a motor we created the illusion of motion similar to how animation was presented in the pre-movie era. Ultimately though, we earned how to start, stop and change the direction the motor is spinning via buttons, and how to control the …

Arduino Week 03

This week we start with Project 07 in the Arduino Starter Kit and built a Keyboard Instrument. This project utilizes a process called a resistor ladder. A resistor ladder is a circuit that is made using repeating units of resistors. This way we can read multiple switches using only one …
