BeatBot using Arduino with Vibration Switch and buzzer

BeatBot using VibrationSwitch
What is the BeatBot? The BeatBot is a BreakoutBros toy invented to entertain people who love tapping their fingers to a beat. It's very simple, and after playing with it for a while I had to share this creation. Using a vibration switch and a buzzer the BeatBot will sense a predetermined number of beats and play them back to you. You can tap your fingers along and it will remember the beat Check it out below. Be sure to turn on y...

Control Arduino Over Wifi Using IoT Device – Photon

Arduino Particle Control Wifi
  Last week we looked into using the Particle Photon to connect to our RFID badge and LCD system using an Arduino to control an IoT device. But what about the other way around? This article we will discuss using an IoT device to control an Arduino. Level Shifters To do this we will be expanding on the 5V to 3.3V level shifter we made in the Photon RFID article and also create a 3.3v to 5.5V level shifter. Instead of using the Digital I/O pins and sending pin state data we will ...

Turning your Ardunio Project into an IoT device using Particle Photon

After reviewing the Particle Photon, I wanted to go back to one of our tutorials and add some IoT (Internet of Things) functionality using the Photon. In this tutorial I'll walk through how to have the Particle Photon email you by adding this capability to our RFID Badge Scanner with LCD tutorial. If you have not seen the RFID Badge Scanner with LCD tutorial, the first thing you will need to do is visit this article and get setup...
