Today’s project consists, as the title says, in the creation of an arduino/MSGEQ7 based pedal to be used with your guitar/bass/whatever. I’m going to show you how to use the MSGEQ7 (a 7 bands equalizer), how to display the result on a graphical LCD and, icing on the cake, how to make your own arduino shield.

Step 1: MSGEQ7.

Let’s dive deep into the subject: I’m going to show you how this nifty lil’chip works. First: where to find it. You can grab it at Sparkfun of on eBay. It’s pretty common.

Once you got it, just search for the datasheet and check the pinout:

But especially the wiring diagram:

iOS 6.1 is here, evasi0n jailbreak too, my iPhone 5 is now how my iPhone 4 was, a long time ago: NCSettings, FolderEnhancer, FiveIconDocks… But it’s not completely as it used to be: Install0us is gone for good!

Disclaimer: this is not intended to be a “how to get apps for free” guide. I buy the apps I use, I even buy apps I don’t. Be kind and reward the developers!

Here’s a method that will allow you to install an IPA on your jailbroken iDevice.

Bonsoir à tous 😉

Ce soir, je vais vous montrer comment transformer un simple RaspberryPi en une station de téléchargement puissante et contrôlable à distance. Ce guide utilise l’OS Raspbian, je vous conseille de l’utiliser également.

Tout d’abord, connectez-vous en SSH à votre Pi:

Tout d’abord il nous faut installer liblept3. N’étant pas disponible via apt-get, il nous faut l’installer manuellement:

 

 

 

Ensuite viennent quelques packages dont python a besoin pour faire fonctionner pyload

Hi everyone

Tonight, I’m going to show you how you can transform a simple RaspberryPi card-sized computer into a powerful remote-controlled download station. This guide uses Raspbian OS, I advise you do the same.

First, ssh to your Pi:

New, we have to install liblept3. It can’t be done through apt-get commands, so we’ll have to do it manually:

 

 

 

Next comes some packages needed by PyLoad.

Bonjour à tous.

Aujourd’hui, je vais vous montrer un des trucs les plus cools que l’on puisse faire avec un arduino: contrôler des appareils. Nous allons, avec très peu de choses, entrer de plein pied dans la domotique! Quand je dis “appareils”, je parle de vos lampes, de votre grille-pain…

Voici de quoi vous aurez besoin:

  • Tout d’abord, un Arduino. N’importe quel modèle conviendra. J’utilise un vieux Mega 1280 parce qu’il a beaucoup d’I/O, mais même le petit Mini Pro de chez sparkfun ferait l’affaire.

Hi fellas.

Today, I’m going to show you one of the coolest things you can do with an arduino: controlling home appliances. We’re going, within a very few steps, dive into home automation. And when I say “appliances”, I mean your lights, your coffe machine…

Here’s the things you will need:

  • First, an Arduino. Any model will do the job. I will use an old Mega 1280 because it has a lot of  digital pins, but even the tiny Mini Pro from sparkfun can fit.

Hi everyone. Today’s project is the creation, from scratch, of a complete PCB. My aim here is to give you a ready-to-go method, allowing you to create your own PCBs with common products. I’ll try to give you as much advices as I can.

First, we need an idea. Something not too complicated. But something useful. Let’s build an iPhone charger. Here’s an early prototype I made a few months ago:

And le awesomely drawn schematic for it:
