Getting location co-ordinates using the GPS shield

Ever wanted to know your exact location on Earth? Or you wanted to know how fast you are moving? A GPS is what we need. But what if I want to determine all this using an Arduino? A GPS shield will...

Bending with flex sensors

Flex sensors are relatively helpful in determining how much bent there is on a particular object. For example, you can use flex sensors on a glove to determine how much you bend your fingers. In this tutorial, we will be...

Detecting motion using PIR Motion Sensor

Have you ever wanted to know how a device that warns you when someone broke into your house while you are asleep in the middle of the night? Or how the lights are turned on automatically when you enter a dark room? Well, all...

Today is Huntrodd’s Day!
