[Arduino Shield List] published an updated list of ALL Arduino shields. From the Ethernet Shield  to the more exotic ones.

Arduino The Documentary. coming summer 2010

Posted in du matériel by albertine on août 2, 2010

Laboral Centro de Arte, Spain, has commissioned the creation of a documentary about Arduino. The filmmakers are almost done with it and today they released the trailer to it. A lot of the footage was shot during the Arduino Uno meeting in March 2010, that took place at ITP, New York University.

TRAILER Arduino: The Documentary
In the video you can see among others: Phil (Make, Adafruit), Zach (Makerbot), Alicia (Buglabs), Eric (ITP), Igor (Telefónica), Tom, Dave, Massimo, and David (me), as well as many Arduino ethusiasts, developers, and users.
The documentary is CC licensed, which means you guys can use it in class, public display, etc. The official release including the 45m TV version (with English and Spanish subtitles), the full interviews to all of us, videos taken at Makerbot, Adafruit, NYC Resistor, etc will be soon announced at the film’s website: If you want to volunteer making the subtitles in your own language, feel free to contact the guys behind it.

A Long List of Microcontroller Names Derived from the name of the 11th Century King Arduino
Freeduino was one of the first four or five microcontrollers in the world to honour the 11th century italian King Arduin by using the ‘duino suffix [see footnote]!  Nowadays, « a thousand ‘duinos bloom », as Mao would say, with companies, hobbyists and Italian History buffs all rushing to put part of King Arduin’s name on their circuits. It seems like we add something to this list every day!

voir la liste de la famille « duino » et lire la suite (source)…

Footnote: [*] The exact chronological order of those honoring King Arduino by naming their microcontroller after him has not yet been carefully researched, but it would appear to be as follows:
1. King Arduin’s time: 1100AD
2. Between 1100AD and 2005AD: no microcontrollers are named after King Arduin.
3. Arduino, the first microcontroller to honour King Arduin! 2005
4. Boarduino, 2007. It is no big surprise that ladyada is in the vanguard.
5. Freeduino, September 2007
6. Arduclema September 28, 200

Envie d’un peu de Diabolino

Posted in du matériel by albertine on juin 28, 2010

Say hell-o to Diavolino. Yes, it’s yet-another Arduino compatible board, but it’s cheap and kind of neat. Simplified design, rounded corners, and shiny. Open source kit. You can get one at our store here.

We designed this primarily in response to local need in our San Francisco hacker community for low-cost boards for teaching.

In many ways, this project is reminiscent of and complimentary to our ATmegaXX8 target boards, which are low-cost, simple design circuit boards for programming AVR microcontrollers through an ISP connection. And while you can add one, those boards don’t have a place to put a USB-TTL cable. And so here we are.

The design is like what you’d get if you bred the Ardweeny from Solarbotics with the 5 V Arduino Pro from SparkFun. It’s designed as an open source, through-hole soldering kit, with the « Duemilanove » form factor.

Amarino 2.0 toolkit for Android and Arduino

Posted in du matériel by albertine on juin 15, 2010

This makes me want an Android phone and a Bluetooth Arduino. Amarino is a toolkit for the Android operating system that allows you to interface to an Arduino from your phone. The new version opens up a plug-in architecture and can now control multiple Arduinos (Arduini?) in parallel.
‘android meets arduino’ is a toolkit, basically consisting of an Android application and an Arduino library which will help you to interface with your phone in a new dimension. You can build your own interfaces almost without any programming experience.

et bien chanter maintenant, un kit Arduino pour la voix

Posted in du matériel by albertine on avril 28, 2010

The Voice Shield is an analog audio shield for the Arduino. It allows you to easily add audio to your next project. The Voice Shield uses a unique and very user friendly way to access different sound bytes making it easy to build « talking » devices. It can work with words, complete sentences, or use it to add sound effects.
This is the shield John Park used in his audio sampler + joystick build video.

et si j'achetais des kit et des shields compatible Arduino avec Wifi 802.11B intégré, AsyncLabs

Posted in du matériel by albertine on avril 7, 2010

Voici des nouveaux kits et shield compatibles Arduino qui permettent de rajouter une fonctionnalité Wifi 802.11B. Ces kits sont conçus par AsyncLabs et sont disponible sous 3 formats différents avec une antenne intégrée. Une solution idéale pour réaliser des montages électroniques dotés d’une connectivité Wifi.

BlackWidow 1.0

Le kit BlackWidow 1.0 est directement compatible du format Arduino Duemilanove et dispose d’une connectivité wifi 802.11b avec antenne intégrée.

YellowJacket 1.0

Ce kit Arduino est identique au BlackWidow 1.0 mais dans un format beaucoup plus réduit et donc avec moins de connexion. Au niveau du format on peut le comparer au kit Arduino Mini.

WiShield 2.0

C’est le shield qui vous permettra de rajouter une connectivité Wifi 802.11b à votre kit Arduino. Une mémoire série de 16 Mb est intégrée pour stocké des des pages web ou autres.

et si je faisais voler des pixels !

Posted in du côté de la fabrique, du matériel by albertine on mars 18, 2010

Flyfire, a project initiated by the SENSEable City Laboratory in collaboration with ARES Lab (Aerospace Robotics and Embedded Systems Laboratory) aims to transform any ordinary space into a highly immersive and interactive display environment.

In its first implementation, the Flyfire project sets out to explore the capabilities of this display system by using a large number of self-organizing micro helicopters. Each helicopter contains small LEDs and acts as a smart pixel. Through precisely controlled movements, the helicopters perform elaborate and synchronized motions and form an elastic display surface for any desired scenario.

et si j'achetais un arduiNIX

Posted in du matériel by albertine on mars 10, 2010

The ArduiNIX shield is a user programmable platform for driving multiplexed Nixie tube, Vacuum Fluourescent displays* or other high voltage displays.


Price: $45.00

high tech low tech from mit

Posted in du matériel by albertine on mars 10, 2010

The High-Low Tech group integrates high and low technological materials, processes, and cultures. Our primary aim is to engage diverse audiences in designing and building their own technologies by situating computation in new cultural and material contexts, and by developing tools that democratize engineering. We believe that the future of technology will be largely determined by end-users who will design, build, and hack their own devices, and our goal is to inspire, shape, support, and study these communities. To this end, we explore the intersection of computation, physical materials, manufacturing processes, traditional crafts, and design.
