Candlelight-Atmosphere with Arduino

7 Jan

Just a snipped of code that I have found for creating a candlelight-like light with a yellow LED attached to a PWM port of an Arduino (called here ledPin). You could probably add another red LED to optimize the effect, but for a first try it does not look too bad.

analogWrite(ledPin, random(120)+135);
delay(random(100));

Here is a small video of the setup in action:

A Holder for Bluetooth Camera Remote

7 Jan

I have created a holder that can be used to attach my Arduino-based camera remote to the hotshoe of the camera. The file was created in the CAD software Rhinoceros and printed on a MakerBot Replicator 1 owned by the University I work at. Its a rough first try, but the device works.
