Source code for 18 Arduino projects in APC magazine

I’m now up to Project 18 in my APC masterclass series on the Arduino microcontroller and I still get asked where the source code for these projects can be found.
You’ll find them all over at the APC Magazine website – including any extra tools for software.
This month’s project turns the Arduino Uno board into a digital audio recorder. You’ll find the software for it and 17 other Arduino projects at… Read more

Build a digital audio recorder with #arduino – June 2014 APC magazine

June is almost over and I’ve been remiss in not updating what’s happening inside the June 2014 issue of APC magazine:
* I’ve had a busy month, benchtesting the latest Android, iOS and Windows 8 tablets. The real surprise for me was the arrival of some decent Windows tablets at amazing prices that are well worth taking a look at.
* With Google having released Chromecast in Australia, I thought it timely to take a look at Chromecast alternatives in… Read more

The new Arduino-powered Rolly Mk. II robot – now up at

Fully-automated rolling robots don’t have to cost much, particularly now that there’s a low-cost acrylic chassis available that makes the job much easier.
I’ve built a few robots now over the last year or so, but this is the cheapest and easiest to get going so far.
The original Mk. I robot used a kitchen container lid as the chassis but using a readily-available eBay kit, you can now build a more robust model. Like the original, the Mk. II… Read more

New #arduino code for Rolly Mk. I robot

My Rolly Mk. I robot in APC magazine last year has been a huge hit with readers, but some have had trouble with various parts of the project, so I’ll quickly address a couple of them here.
First, NEW CODE – the good news is some new code. In fact, in this month’s issue of APC magazine, I’ve designed the new and improved Mk. II robot with an new acrylic chassis. Why good news? Because the new Mk. II software should… Read more

12 Arduino projects you can build [including #arduino source code]

One of the most enjoyable jobs I have is playing around with Arduino and making Arduino projects! It’s probably the only job where I get to combine my knowledge and university training in computers and electronics at the same time!
My Arduino Masterclass in APC magazine has been running for 18 months now (and still going strong!). I’ve built up a sizeable list of projects, so I thought it was time to put them together in an easy-to-grab list.
They cover… Read more
