Sometimes when we go away from home for a few days or are really busy the house plants (unfairly) suffer.
This is my solution a Smart Plant Pot which includes integrated water tank, soil moisture sensor, water level sensor, pump and status LED all controlled by an Arduino Nano.
I've always wanted a YouTube counter for my channel but they often cost more than I wanted to pay and required a YouTube API key. This design is buildable for under £15/$18, does not need an API key and sits on top of a monitor, stands on a surface or can wall mounted.
This Arduino powered machine separates coins of different dominations and then tallies up their total value. This is shown on an 8 digit 7 segment display.
Reflected infrared sensors (TCRT5000s) are used to detect the coins.
I decided to remove the chore of opening and closing curtains. This means running into every room in the house 730 fewer times a year! (Not to mention it's super cool). Once setup you can also add routines in Alexa to have your curtains work in tandem with other devices in your house.
I needed a hot wire cutter to slice up some Styrofoam for my BB8 project. I looked at buying one but they were not as cheap so I decided to make one of my own and I was so pleased with it I decided to share it with anyone else who wants to make one.
