70 Virtual Money
Developments in implementing bidirectional payment systems,
allowing virtual and traditional currencies to flow freely back and
forth. Series Editor: Tessel Renzenbrink.
10 Pattern Lock
This access control system requires a personal pattern or signature
to be 'drawn' on a surface instead of banging numbers into a keypad.
The article also has a solid backgrounder on capacitive touch
22 500 ppm LCR Meter (2)
This top notch project deserves a matching presentation. In this
second instalment of the article we continue with descriptions of the
keypad extension for standalone use, the instrument's functions, and
32 Elektor Linux Board Extension
This extension board was developed to further propel our Embedded
Linux series of articles and the matching GNUblin board. It has a
display, buttons, a real time clock and 16 GPIOs. Linux devotees,
switch on your solder irons.
38 Arduino on Course (5)
Using a webcam and a few parts found in the junkbox we build a one-eyed
guard to watch over our cookie jar. The circuit and Arduino software faithfully
evidence any attempt to steal cookies by taking a snapshot of the culprit.
44 Universal Driver for Power LEDs
Power LEDs are now affordable, and this project uses a specialist 1С Type TS19377 to simplify the design of a compact and efficient power LED driver.
48 Thermo Book
Designed to fit into the back of a book cover, this circuit indicates
temperature and relative humidity at fixed intervals. The temp/RH readout
can also be toggled manually (literally) by clapping your hands. The sensor
used is a Sensirion SHT15.
52 DIP Accelerometer Module
Accelerometer ICs typically come in packages not suitable to home
soldering. Here we solve the problem by presenting a carrier board for the
Introducing Microsoft Gadgeteer, a rapid prototyping system comprising a
mainboard, extension modules, and software to match.
60 Handlebar Heating
Not satisfied with the crude systems on the market the author set out to
design a sophisticated handlebar heater circuit with intelligent control.
The result is suitable for motorbikes and scooters.
