Arduino JAM V 2014

Our 5th Arduino Jam @timelab has ended. In about 48 hours most teams went from idea to working prototype. The outcome was superb and it has been a real fun weekend!

  • TEAM 1: Pixel Fighter (Joeri)
    Joeri started creating a 2 player fighting game with music on the Arduino Uno without any extra IC’s, hoping he would be able to show something at the end, but managed to actually finish the game within 48 hours.
  • TEAM 2: POV stream (Erik, Toon, Yannick)
    Eric wanted to make a POV disk showing streaming video and teamed up with Toon and Yannick. All hardware is embedded into the disk. They where able to show colours and sending colour data wireless to the disk, but needed more time to actually show a picture, so they went for psychedelic colour effects.
  • TEAM 3: Pick & Place (Koen, Maarten)
    Koen brought his robot arm and wanted it to pick up stuff, recognize it and place it by colour. Together with Maarten, he had lot’s of trouble making the arm move, and ran out of time to complete the project, but did learn a lot.
  • TEAM 4: Cube Synth (Maarten, Valerio, Jeroen)
    Valerio was into music and wanted to do something with synthesizers and the Arduino. Together with Maarten and Jeroen, he started working en the Synth Cube, making different sounds and colours depending how you turn over the cube.
  • TEAM 5: Auto Cook (Ziping, Glenn)
    Ziping needed a machine to cook his diner, so together with Glenn he started working on one. This machine has a build-in display, showing different recipes. Once you make your choice, the machine will auto add herbs, put on the heat and turn it back off when finished. All you need to do is, stir from time to time.
  • TEAM 6: Urby the egg (Jan, Bert, Midas)
    Jan had to lay his egg, so he did and teamed up with Bert and Midas. Remember Furby, this is even better. It has no fur and thus, making it a real Urby. This egg reacts to human input using light, movement and sound.
  • TEAM 7: Photographia (Jolien, Tom)
    Jolien wanted to take stunning pictures, and figured out with Tom, how to use the Arduino to auto dim the lights, trigger the flash on sound or/and movement (braking line of sight) and even how to adjust the trigger point in time. She did take some very cool pictures. AND THEY WON !
