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 code everything with very little...

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 LCD panel, moving the paddles and...

Arduino 8 Conway’s Game of Life

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 random arrays, copy arrays and a whole lot...

Arduino 7 Binary Calculator Circuit

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 NAND 7400 IC to create an XOR Gate....

Arduino 6 : Read Schematic Diagrams

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 to build all the other gates. They are...

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 work as well as NOT, OR 7 AND Gates. The...

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 without touching it. In addition...

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, Passive Buzzers and much more. All of the code...

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 difference between resistors in series...

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 with Arduino, 2 Circuits and much...
