COVID-19 quarantine projects to try with eduArdu while at home :)

Keep social distance while drinking with friends 🙂

No this is not an eduArdu project, but it is still fun to implement.

The eduArdu Social Distance project is using the onboard Ultra sound distance meter and beeps with its buzzer when someone comes closer than 1.5 meters from you.

The eduArdu Infrared Thermometer project uses MOD-IR-TEMP and scans surface temperature from a distance of few centimeters. If the read temperature is above 38 C it will beep with the buzzer to warn you.

Both projects are easy to implement together with your children.

Stefan Goetze submitted today cool project with FOSDEM-85 in our Project section.

https://www.olimex.com/Projects/

He is using the ATTiny85 internal chip sensor to measure the temperature, which he displays with LED blinks on Pinguino eyes. For this purpose he re-connected the Power LED to another port.

The document where he explains how he build it together with all source codes is here

Now FOSDEM-85 can be used as thermometer on your desk 🙂
