  • NameElectronic Dice
  • Bykurt
  • Push a button to roll the dice. When you let go of the button, the result shows up on the red LEDs just like on real dice. This is a simple beginner's open source hardware project that you can show off to your friends the next time you play a board game and can't find the dice for it!
  • NameMonitor backlight
  • Bymadworm
  • This is a very simple project, as it mainly consists of using existing and otherwise unused prototype boards (see 'A lamp for nerds'), a little bit of creative drawing with Inkscape and sending the design files off to Ponoko for laser cutting. It's a good example of repurposing / upcycling pro...

Fluorescent lamps contain mercury and the ones I had started to show signs of age (you know, the kind of light that makes places appear darker instead of brighter). Now what to do? Use LEDs of ...

  • My inspiration for developing this gas gauge was after purchasing a new car (Scion Xa) and wondering what MPG I was getting. After much research on ODBII protocols (Scions support CAN-BUS), and looking into open source software that already existed (OBDuino32K) I delved into my first Arduino pro...
