Picture of STEAMPUNK STEAM GAUGE, POWERED BY ARDUINO
This was created to be some eye-candy for my kitchen. I wanted something unique for a special blank space on my wall, and adding movement, blinky lights and interesting mechanical “guts” made it even better.
Ultimately, this project ended up requiring the following range of skills:
1. Basic mechanical skills
2. Light metalworking and fabrication
3. Graphic design – for the new dial face
4. Circuit design
5. Arduino programming
6. Woodworking- for mockups and decoration
7. Drywall and 120V wiring – for mounting and permanent power supply

Great job. I like the movements you've chosen. LEDs add just enough "flair". I really like the Steam Punk look. Thanks for posting.

Wonderful work, and awesome that you were able to make the mechanical linkages work as well!
