Build a distance-sensor with LittleBits

By utilizing the Arduino-bit and the Proto-bit, all kinds of electronic circuits and components can be connected to a Littlebits circuit. In this example, we connect an Ultrasonic sensor to the Arduino-bit with the Proto-bit. The distance measured by the Ultrasonic sensor will be displayed on the Number-bit. This example is based on the Bat … Continue reading Build a distance-sensor with LittleBits

Build an RFID reader with Arduino and the RC522 RFID module

The RC522 RFID module is a cheap module which comes with a card and a dongle. You can buy it at our local electronics shop the STORES for € 4,85 (search for ‘rfid’ in the pricelist). Only thing you have to do before you can use it is solder the header. If you are unfamiliar with … Continue reading Build an RFID reader with Arduino and the RC522 RFID module

Arduino programming made easy

Want to use an Arduino to prototype some electronics? But programming is not really ‘your thing’? Consider Modkit, a Visual Arduino Programming tool! This example is a program which makes a led blink, made with Modkit Micro, the free Modkit tool.

Create a wireless presenter for your presentations with LittleBits

As a demo for a workshop I am giving next week, I created a wireless presenter to use for presentations. The receiver is connected to the computer via the Arduino Bit. The wireless presenter is just a button connected to the Wireless Transmitter Bit. When you press the button, the (powerpoint) presentation advances to the next … Continue reading Create a wireless presenter for your presentations with LittleBits
