Introduction

This is a 6 Dof IMU shield for Arduino, using the ADXL345 accelerometer and the ITG-3200 gyro.This IMU Combo shield also embeded a xbee sockets. So it's suitable for the projects that need bluetooth, wifi or Zigbee wireless communication.And the shield extends a pair of the encoders, the motor driver interface and 4 analog input connectors.
 
It's aimed to run on the balancing robots or mobile platforms. The encoder and motor driver interfaces are the necessary parts of the your robots. Plugin the rotation sensors to the analog connectors, then you get the most easy way to adjust the system parameters and debug the platform.

  • Coffee Grinder With Arduino
  • Using a few bits and pieces, this ordinary coffee grinder now has two presets to run the motor for a programmable length of time. The idea being that the grinder running for a set amount of time will deliver a certain amount of coffee each button press meaning the beans can be stored unground, keeping them fresher for longer. I completed this project for a friend, Ian, who lives for coffee. Ian wanted the same functionality in h...
  • The Hipster Coaster
  • We wanted to make a interactive display of the fun that can be had with DIY projects to take to Sydney Mini Maker Faire. We decided to do so by utilising the TinkerKit Braccio from Arduino.org, alongside some 3D Printing ingenuity, for an engaging display for all ages. Enter the Hipster Coaster in all its glory.   All the parts were printed seperately on our family of Lulzbot 3D Printers, later stuck together using a mi...
