The Video Experimenter shield is an Arduino shield that lets you do all kinds of experiments with video.
* Overlay text and graphics onto a video signal from a camera, DVR, DVD player, VCR or any other source of composite video. * Capture low-res video image frames for display or video processing. Give your Arduino the gift of sight! * Perform object detection for computer vision projects. * Decode closed captioning or XDS (extended data services) data embedded in television broadcasts. * Works with NTSC (North America) or PAL (rest of the world) television standards. * Uses digital pins 2, 6, 7, 8, and optionally 9. Uses analog pin 2.
The Digit Shield is a simple, low-cost Arduino shield that provides a four digit 7-segment display. * An easy-to-use open source library makes it very simple to display integers and floating point numbers. * Multiplexing of digits is implemented using a timer overflow interrupt handler for flicker-free display. * Only uses 4 Arduino pins (2,3,4,5). * All through-hole parts for easy kit assembly. * Available in two display colors: cool, crisp green or blazing red-orange!
Mike says he’ll be at the Hack Factory this Wednesday for open hack, maybe he’ll bring a couple of samples along? HINT HINT.
