Photographer and Instructables user Alexander Morris created a giant Instagram inspired photo-booth and published all the steps to make one yourself. It’s the perfect solution to pimp-up your parties!
What’s inside of the box? An Arduino DUE coded to start the photo-booth sequence once the big red button is pressed and some other stuff:
You can start exploring the tutorial on Instructables and hopefully Alexander will soon share the code on github.
The newest Arduino has just arrived in the Maker Shed. The Arduino Due is the first 32-bit ARM powered Arduino and packs a number of high-level features into a low-cost package.

Ci aspetta un week end intenso: mentre Davide e Pitusso tengono il workshop base di Arduino a Matera
, a Venezia (presso H-farm
) si tiene il secondo codemotion di quest’anno, che vedrà il nostro Cristian Maglie raccontare
l’Arduino Due e il cammino che abbiamo intrapreso per realizzarla.
Arduino sponsorizza anche l’Hackaton sulle emergenze, offrendo 10 Arduino e breadboard ad ogni gruppo e i premi (Wifi shield e due Arduino Due).
Happy hacking e che vinca il migliore!
L’ Hackathon è stato un successo. Ecco la [wiki]
con tutti i progetti sviluppati e la [galleria]
con le foto dell’evento.

[Stimmer] on the Arduino Forum hardcoded a way to display 160×240 (320×240 after some posts) VGA signal.
After working out how to do a timer interrupt I’ve had a go at making a VGA framebuffer. It is rather low-res at present(160×240) and fuzzy but I hope to be able to improve that. It has 8-bit colour (RRRGGGBB).
I cannot get Eagle to run right now so will have to describe the schematic in text:
Due pin 2 -> VGA pin 13 (HSync)
Due pin 3 -> VGA pin 14 (VSync)
Due pin 25 -> 820R resistor -> VGA pin 3 (blue)
Due pin 26 -> 390R resistor -> VGA pin 3 (blue)
Due pin 27 -> 2k2 resistor -> VGA pin 2 (green)
Due pin 28 -> 1k resistor -> VGA pin 2 (green)
Due pin 14 -> 470R resistor -> VGA pin 2 (green)
Due pin 15 -> 2k2 resistor -> VGA pin 1 (red)
Due pin 29 -> 1k resistor -> VGA pin 1 (red)
Due pin 11 -> 470R resistor -> VGA pin 1(red)
Due pin GND -> VGA pins 5,6,7,8,10

We are proud to show you a tutorial about using an Arduino Motor Shield with the Arduino Due. This example shows the simplest thing you can do: driving a DC motor forward and backwards.

Hamburg Maker Meeting 2012, which took place last week and involved about 200 visitors and more than 20 exhibitors, has been a fantastic opportunity to meet and share experience regarding several topics, such as 3D printing, hacking, retro gaming and so on. At the Attraktor Makerspace, several projects have been presented and demonstrated by their inventors, among which we highlight a very nice Arduino-based floppy drive organ that has been employed to play the Tetris game theme.
Moreover, among the others events planned for the meeting, a special sneak-preview session allowed all the interested people to get some insights on the new Arduino Due board, released a couple of days ago.
A video of the event can be found here, while here you may find more pictures.
More information can be found on the homepage of the meeting.
