DIY Arduino-powered Ambilight

You can build a simple “Ambilight” clone, similar as one posted by the Admin at Electronics-lab. You can watch the above video for more detailed features.  ” Ambilight is a feature of some Philips televisions that projects colored light onto the wall behind the display, synchronized with the content on the screen to create an immersive effect.”   […]

DIY LED based Analog clock

Hackedgadgets member Alan Parekh shared various versions of LED based Analog clock. You can build your own analog clock using the following materials: One homemade clock uses a PIC16F877 Microcontroller with a 20MHz clock, it also has a DS1307 real time clock with battery backup. 169 x 700mcd diffused white LED’s connected in a matrix […]

DIY LED Clock

You can build your own Atmel ATmega16 microcontroller based LED clock. The open-source softwares like interactive printed circuit board (pcb) editor and schematic capture program/tool like gschem can be chosen for your design. A Geekysuavo member shared the circuit schematic, layout and copper etch pattern. The required bill of materials can be collected from here and the […]

Iron Man with powerful LED flashlight

  You can build your own repulsor-like LED flashlight that can be mounted on your hand palm comfortably. You can turn ‘ON’ this Gadget to  produce brighter light as you move your hand back and forth. With this powerful LED flashlight mounted on your hand palm, you’ll look like an ‘Iron Man’ !!  Similar design as shared […]

Radio-controlled LED clock

A radio clock or radio-controlled clock is a clock that is synchronized by a time code bit stream transmitted by a radio transmitter connected to a time standard such as an atomic clock. You can design your own radio-controlled clock using DCF77 atomic clock. To know about DCF77, it is strongly recommended to visit the […]

Voltage-controlled RGB generator

Enide member shared an amazing project of designing one simple RGB color generator. With the power of PIC12F675 microcontroller you too can build your own circuit that generates many colors using a RGB LED. The basic concept of the project can be viewed here. The working principle that governs this project is : “Two independent […]
