Bluetooth Accelerometer

Check out this PIC based bluetooth accelerometer that you can use for your future wireless accelerometer applications.

This is a small wireless sensor platform providing a bluetooth SPP link to three axes of accelerometer data. The accelerometers are sampled by a PIC microcontroller (onboard ADC) at roughly 100Hz (rate can be changed via firmware). Data from the ADC conversion is sent to a remote computer using the PIC’s U

DIY – IMbot




Here’s a cool IM-bot, which let’s you know when your friends are online. This one is for Linux but it shouldn’t be too hard to make it yourself using a PIC 16F628A or any other microcontroller.

To make the device, you first need a push puppet. A push puppet is a small articulated character composed of several body parts held together by several strings that run through them under ten

DIY HACK – Oscilloscope using PIC


Here’s a cool DIY oscilloscope using a PIC12F675 kinda similar to the Atmega Atmel Oscilloscope.

This is a simple PC voltage oscilloscope using only a PIC12F675, a 20MHz oscillator, and a RS232 level shifter. The PIC takes a sample on GP2, immediately sends it to the PC at 115,200 baud using an software asynchronous serial routine, and repeats. It sends a 8-bit val

HACK – PIC USB Programming, a Hackaday Competition Entry


Here’s a cool PIC USB programmable microcontroller. Cool…a hackaday competition entry

“This design uses the Microchip PIC 18F2450 or 18F2550 USB enabled microcontroller. The total parts cost is around $15 including the microcontroller for a single board. The board features a USB port that can be used with a bootloader for easy programming. It is designed to use a 20MHz crystal. Two switches are included, for MCL

DIY HACK – “Propeller Clock” Mechanically Scanned LED Clock


Cool propeller clock you can make!

How this clock works: A motor spins the “propeller”, and a small microprocessor keeps track of time and changes the pattern on seven LEDs with exact timing to simulate a 7 by 30 array of LEDs. It is an illusion, but it works nicely.

If you want to build this clock, you will need a few things, including: Skill with motors and mechanical things. Prior electronic experience. A dead VCR or floppy drive or other source of a suitable

Hackaday – Binary Clock HACK


cool hack…!@!

[Walter] sent in his version of a PIC binary clock. It’s a nice alternative If you don’t want one that runs off TTL logic, This one runs on a PIC 16F628 (Microchip is great for samples) and displays hours in 5 bits and minutes in 6. His blog also features a decent looking programmer, and he shows of
