I'm sure you can buy these cheaply ready made but it's more fun to make your own, and this way it can be customised exactly how you want it. Power efficiency The unit is very efficient - I use 4x AA ...

Night light? Party light? This project could be any of these things, but I think the coolest thing it can do is make rad 3D-ish, multi-color shadow art. This idea came from the Trippy Night Light published in Make by Charles Platt and the "Trippy RGB Color Mixing Night Light" by e024576...

This clock involves all the types of comunication between MCUs i know to use. It includes: i2c, infrared, paralel, 1 wire serial, and 2 wire serial (data bit-clock). Where does the hour come from??? To begin I used the DS1307 RTC to provide the h...
