Arduino 11 Finish Pong

In this video I finish creating Pong on an LCD Panel with an Arduino. I combine the code for making the Paddles work, with the code for making the ball bounce. We mainly have to consolidate printing to the LCD panel, while making sure we don’t have any character...

Arduino 10 : Arduino Pong 2

As we continue making Pong with an Arduino, I now create the code to make the ball handle collision detection, movement and way much more. We are building Pong on a constrained piece of hardware using raw binary bits and clever algorithms. Like before I’ll live...

Arduino 9 Arduino Pong

Someone requested that I make the game Pong on a 16 x 2 LCD panel and so I start doing that in this tutorial. I’m going to live code everything with no preparation ahead of time, so that you can see how I solve this problem. I focus this time on drawing on the...

Arduino 8 Conway’s Game ...

I tried to cover a ton in this tutorial. I’ll show how to use LCD Panels with Arduino. I then live code Conway’s Game of Life using an Arduino and a LCD Panel. Along the way we’ll create custom characters, convert from binary to base 10, generate...

Arduino 7 Binary Calculator Ci...

This tutorial takes the next step towards understanding how a bunch of resistors and transistors turn into a real computer. Previously we created gates and now we will use them to create both a 1 Bit & a 4 Bit Binary Calculator on a breadboard. I’m using a...

Arduino 6 : Read Schematic Dia...

After the last video many people asked me how to read schematic diagrams so this time I’ll walk you through the process of taking a schematic diagram to a finished circuit. This time we will be creating a NAND Gate. NAND Gates are awesome because they can be used...

Arduino Tutorial 5

My most active subscriber asked me to show how to make a calculator with circuits and so I begin that journey with this video. To make a calculator you need to understand Transistors as well as Transistor Gates. I make 4 circuits, one to demonstrate how transistors...

Arduino Tutorial 4

In this part of my Arduino tutorial we’ll create 2 separate projects. First we’ll learn how 7 segment displays work and then create a dice simulation rolling circuit. We’ll then learn how to create a theremin, which is a weird instrument you can play...

Arduino Tutorial 3

In the last video I asked for requests so in this video I cover those requests. I’ll make both a Proximity Sensor and a Piano using an Arduino. Here is the kit I’m using. We’ll learn about Ultrasonic Sensors, How Sound is Turned into a Current,...

Arduino Tutorial 2

In this part of my Arduino tutorial I’ll cover how to measure current, resistance and voltage with a multimeter. I’ll also show how to measure voltage with an Arduino with a demonstration using a potentiometer and LED. To finish off I’ll show the...

Arduino Tutorial

Here I begin a massive tutorial on Arduino and Electronics! In this first video I cover Arduino Basics, Electricity, Ground, Voltage, Current, Resistance, Power, Protecting Components, LEDs, Breadboards, Arduino Coding, Ohm’s Law, Generating Different Voltages...

Arduino Programming

In this tutorial I’ll cover the core C language used to program Arduinos. We’ll look at ports, the serial monitor, looping, data types, conditionals, setup, loop, static, functions, arrays, strings, numerous math functions, bit manipulation, random,...

Qt Tutorial 5 : Paint App

In this video I finish the Qt Paint app I started in this video. So many topics are covered. We make menu bars, numerous dialog boxes, interact in numerous ways, allow for drawing, changing colors, changing line widths, printing, saving and opening new files. I hope...

Qt Tutorial 4 : Paint App

I received a bunch of questions about the Qt Paint App Example, so I decided to do a tutorial in which I explain every line of code. This paint app allows for opening, saving and printing images. You can also draw on the screen using different colors and pen widths....

Qt Tutorial 3

In this part of my Qt Video Tutorial I’ll cover how to make numerous charts. We’ll make two types of Bar Charts along with Pie and Line. I’ll also cover numerous attributes associated with Qt charts. All of the code follows the video below. I did my...

Learning Japanese

In this tutorial series I’ll show all the free tools I used while learning Japanese over the last 2 months. I’ll cover how I learned Hiragana, Katakana, and over 2,100 Kanji. I show how to use an awesome app named Anki for learning everything. Then...

How I Learn Everything

The question I get more then any other is “How do you learn everything?” In this video I cover the main tool I use being Anki. I provide numerous examples on how you can use Anki to learn an endless variety of subjects. I then cover tricks to make learning...

Qt Tutorial 2 : C++ Calculator

The most requested next C++ app you guys asked for was a calculator, so here it is. We’ll make a C++ GUI Calculator app in one video. Along the way we’ll learn a lot! We’ll cover a topic which confuses many people which is how to setup event handling...

Qt Tutorial : C++ Notepad App

I thought it would be fun to make a real app in this Qt Tutorial, so I made a working Notepad app. We’ll install Qt for Windows and MacOS. Then we’ll cover Qt Basics, Dialogs, Widgets, Drag and Drop Interfaces, Creating / Opening / Saving Files, Menus,...

C++ Tutorial 21

In this part of my C++ tutorial I finish covering C++ with Regular Expressions. If you missed the 1st part watch it first. This time I’ll cover Back References, Substitutions, Look Ahead, Or Conditionals and 3 problems for you to solve. All of the heavily...
recent from Communication How I Make YouTube Videos
How I Make YouTube Videos The most common question that I get is How I Make YouTube Videos. I have held off on making this video because I’m definitely not an expert at making videos. I didn’t want anyone to think I thought I was either. However, the past few videos have been about answering common questions so I decided...
recent from Diet Nutritional Shrimp Gumbo
Shrimp Gumbo I haven’t made a recipe video in a while, so today I thought I’d present the recipe my wife and children love the best Shrimp Gumbo. The feature is definitely the shrimp, but the sweet and yet hot sauce is pretty amazing on its own. I cam up with this after my family watched The Princess and the...
recent from Marketing Tutorial Vote
Tutorial Vote I’ve decided that my next tutorial series will be really big and will answer many of the questions I receive. The only problem is that most people either want to see an Android / Games Tutorial, or a J2EE / Application Development Framework Tutorial? I can’t do both because they will each take at...
