Goonie BoxTM- Interactive Furniture

What's interactive furniture you ask? Well... sit down folks and let me show you what happens when you mix a bit of Arduino mysticism with the epic game "The Room" from Fireproof games and a healthy dusting of the classic movie GOONIES! (I know right????) Without further adue my Arduinonaughts, I give you.... wait for it... GOONIEBOX!

Goonie BoxTM Intro Video

 

Go ahead, you can ask. How on earth did you come up with that??

Well, much like my previous build (“Orbis, the Amazing Kinetic Sculpture”), I wanted to create a unique piece of furniture for my home which my guests could interact with. This time however, I wanted it to be something which I wouldn’t have to explain...

Dr.Duino’s Stem Class- Controlling 90 LED’s via Bluetooth!

Posted by Guido Bonelli on January 15, 2016 . 0 Comments

STEM is to Engineering as “the force” is to a Jedi. From a very young age I knew I wanted to be an engineer. I was fortunate to have my very own personal Yoda who also happened to be my uncle. He trained my young mind in the ways of the engineering force by harnessing the principles contained within STEM. Fast forward to today where I am an engineer and business owner. As yoda would say, “Time it is to teach while the force is strong .” Ok, enough with the star wars humor. I have finally reached a point where I could pursue my passion for engineering by teaching STEM via Arduino to the next generation. I was fortunate enough to find three young minds who were naturally curious about electronics. We currently meet once per week for several hours where I teach using real world projects. I will...

Open Source Hardware Group

Posted by Guido Bonelli on May 09, 2015 . 1 Comment

When I was working on launching Dr.Duino on #kickstarter, I had the opportunity to work with Michael from the Open Source Hardware Group. If you haven't had a chance to look at his site, this is a must see for us #Arduinonauts. Michaels site is an absolute plethora of information containing: Arduino courses (Free and Paid), projects and Podcasts! This is a true one stop shop for Arduino for sure.

Courses

The free course (Arduino Course for Absolute Beginners), is a 12 part Arduino video training course. It really targets those with no prior experience and gives them the power to bring their creation to life! You know the feeling, your struck with your next great idea but wait, "how do I build it?" Well, this course is exactly what the newbie Arduino user will...

OSHW and Sparkfun TED Talks

Posted by Guido Bonelli on March 29, 2015 . 2 Comments

Recently I watched the TED talk on Sparkfun, given by the owner of Sparkfun Nathan Seidle. If you are not familiar with TED talks, you really have to check them out. It is a fantastic way to learn about super complex subjects, in a very short period of time, in a easy to understand and concise way. Best of all, they are given by industry leaders who are excellent speakers.

During Nathan's speech he delves into differences between Open Source Hardware development and attempting to protect every idea via patents. While this debate is not new by any means, I find it absolutely fascinating. Essentially it boils down to this, even if you have a patent someone or some company will either steel it or circumvent it. So, why bother in the first place? After all patents are...

Orbis and Hackaday

Posted by Guido Bonelli on March 17, 2015 . 0 Comments

On my “about-us” page, I talk about my biggest #make to date. Something I like to call “Orbis- The amazing #Arduino Kinetic Sculpture.” Well as of yesterday March 16, 2015, Orbis was featured on none other than #Hackaday! You can see the article here.

This hack was written by James Hobson (a hackaday staff member). Orbis was created with a mixture of technological enthusiasm. A technological mashup if you please utilizing, 3D rendering/printing on my #Makerbot Replicator1, a pair of #Arduino Atmega 2560’s and #Xbee wireless modules for uber cool and simple communications link between base station and controller.

The firmware was written such that only 1 piece of firmware was needed for either the remote or the sculpture itself. Functionality was selected via a...
