Can You ID This? ID-20 RFID Reader + Arduino

A few weeks ago we showed you how to control your arduino over serial. Well this week are going to do the same thing. Only this time instead of using the serial monitor to send the commands, we will be using the Innovations ID line RFID reader. [[RFID]], or Radio Frequency Identification, is basically a… Continue reading Can You ID This? ID-20 RFID Reader + Arduino

Is it hot? Arduino + MLX90614 IR Thermometer

Being able to sense temperature is cool… But being able to read the temperature of an object without even touching it is simply awesome. The [[MLX90614]] is a sensor that can do just that. By reading the [[infrared]] light coming off an object, this guy can sense between -95 and 720ºf (-70 to 382.2°C) with… Continue reading Is it hot? Arduino + MLX90614 IR Thermometer
