16  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Arduino with WiFi or Xbee / Box & power consumption on: February 12, 2013, 04:51:02 am
Hi there,
I need to build a small device using a wireless module to send data not continuously (trigger just a character sent when a small accelerometer detect a fast movement)

I need to put the whole stuff in a box.

first question: is there a box that can contain Arduino 2009 + WiFi shield ?
I found this one , but not sure about the size of the whole stuff.



second question: is it realistic to use a WiFi module with a basic battery like AA ?
I guess Xbee consumes less but requires an external antenna, afaik.


Any leads, advice, experiences would be very appreciate smiley

Best,

That seems an empty discussion.
You'll check, you'll see, and you'll choose. Everything works like that.

Someone proposes something.
A lot are interested, a lot aren't.

But I won't try to convince you for sure smiley

You'll be smart enough to enjoy the difference, I'm sure about that.

I'm formerly engineer, but artist.
I'm also a dad and love David Lynch.

People aren't only one thing, aren't they?!
This is that profile, made of personal characteristics that makes us unique.
But I can understand you'd need to now WHAT I am, artist, engineer, amateur, pro, etc. Some people needs that before anything else.

This book is a new proposition.
I'd suggest to quietly wait for TOC etc.
That will come.

As you wrote, Arduino can also communicate a lot with its cool friends like computers, other Arduinos etc.
I'm especially very comfortable with Max6, using it since Max4, and I couldn't not to use it in the book.

For any questions related to Arduino with Max, Processing, etc, please fire questions and I'll do my best to answer asap smiley

Hey guys,

I guess you won't be interested yourselves by the book but I bet your open mind can understand a bunch of people can be.

Answering in the text at the first Rob.

In what way is the book different from existing books?
I always think that unique thought concept was dangerous. One and only one book per topic, one and only one idea per project etc
Because we are all unique (even if you don't think that about yourself, you are!) PACKT PUBLISHING thought about me as a nice way to introduce and develop great skills and my own ideas about interaction design and art in this book.
And yes, you'll have the choice. This is a new proposition, a new approach by one guy smiley Don't try to think it is a bad idea before to know the guy, to see the book, to check what people want.
You can read a nice & cool interview made by Arduino Blogs here:
http://arduino.cc/blog/2012/08/31/digital-artist-julien-bayle-interview


Can you post the table of contents?
I will very soon. PACKT has some rules about that.
Please be patient and subscribe to the newsletter to be informed by me (not packt)
I still didn't send any news from that preferring to keep the mailing list quiet and useful.

What is the level of your audience?
If you already wrote a book, you know that you have to know about your audience a bit before to write it, yes.
People who don't know C/C++ can read the book and code stuff at the end.
It is a big book, taking you from te beginning to medium advanced stuff like gLCD, VGA modules use, but also making your Arduino a MIDI responsive synth producing 8bit sounds and reading PCM. We also see how to create our own small library.
I introduce and play with Processing and Max6 in the book in order to open mind to very used frameworks too. I quote a lot of open libraries like MOZZI, and I can say I'm so happy because these library authors/devs are really happy to be quoted in that book.

Languages?
English first.
My reviewers are so good :p
I'm french and can do that in french and italian too but my editor would take care of translations for me.

What will be the price?
Check PACKT PUBLISHING other books for that.
It will exist as ebook too, of course.

Why do you have a forum around the book? Arduino.cc is alive and kicking !
This was more intend for starting the small website around it.
When you'll read the book, you'll see how much I'm forwarding for "further ideas and ressources" to this forum here.
I'm almost sure the forum there won't be used but I'm proposing it.
Propositions are never bad, aren't they?


Answering to the other Rob about the funny notice about photographies smiley
Don't worry, I'm using some nice pictures for the book and especially I'm using intensively (and teach how to use) FRITZING. Guys there at FRITZING seem very happy to be quoted too, btw.


Thanks a lot for your ideas & answers here Rob & Rob.

Hi there,
I'm currently finishing a book for PACKT PUBLISHING.
You can check the website:
http://cprogrammingforarduino.com

I hope you'll like it.

It will be a nice helper beside my courses I'm providing for Art Schools students, especially.

Hello à tous,
un éditeur me propose de faire un DVD de tutoriels Arduino.
Je suis déjà en train d'écrire un book sur le sujet (http://cprogrammingforarduino.com)

Je vous questionne car un autre me propose de faire ça pour Processing.

Lequel vous intéresserait le plus ou vous semblerait le plus pertinent ?
Si ça vous intéresse, vous pouvez me donner votre avis ici

Par avance, merci et bon câblage/programmation!

Very soon, I'll propose Arduino workshops sessions online with a nice system using the browser (anymeeting)
I'll be able to do that in italiano, in french & english.

All infos here: http://designthemedia.com/online
Follow my events on https://www.facebook.com/julien.bayle to keep you informed about schedules.

Hope to see you there smiley

29  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Looking for easy openable boxes around 20cmx20cmx5cm on: September 13, 2011, 02:54:06 pm
Hi there,

I'm looking for boxes/enclosures "a bit like" the one shown in that video:


It would fit perfectly with my last project.

I'm in europe, so grabbing it from europe would be really nice.

any url? address?

thanks a lot !!
30  Using Arduino / General Electronics / What is the maximum of input/outputs usable with MEGA + Mux shield ? on: August 01, 2011, 05:29:24 am
hi mates,

I would like to know what is What is the maximum of input/outputs usable with MEGA + Mux shield ?

Indeed, with this mux shield, I can use 48 in/out pins by using only 7 pins of the MEGA.
Can I use others shift register on the other MEGA pins ?

Indeed, I'd need around 60 Leds + 60 buttons.

I guess the answer is yes, because I can have others SR chains.
But I'm not sure !!

any infos would be appreciate smiley

best,
