Sun Logger

A data logger is a device that is left to run for long periods of time, making regular measurements of external sensors. We’ll be using the Arduino microcontroller and a homemade "shield" (an Arduino accessory board) to create a device that gathers data on light-brightness in an area and how... Read more »

The IR Jammer will cause most infrared remote controls to stop working. This means that you could prevent someone from changing the TV channel... Read more »

Geiger Counter

This DIY Geiger counter clicks and flashes an LED each time it detects a radioactive particle. It works with most common Geiger–Müller tubes, and easily connects to radiation rate meters, data loggers, true random number generators, and the Radiation Network’s GeigerGraph software. Share your radiation readings with the whole world! Read more »
