Free Hardware can help us to perform many daily tasks as well as solve daily problems in difficult situations, however it can also help us to make gadgets and curious objects. A fan of Doctor Who is what you have done, well thanks to an arduino board has managed to create a model similar to the famous Doctor's sonic screwdriver.
The model, plans and materials have been made public so anyone can create and develop their own sonic screwdriver.
The materials for the construction of this screwdriver are very popular and easy to find: some aluminum, Arduino Gemma, 4 AAA batteries, 2 colored LEDs and two small speakers.
Doctor Who's sonic screwdriver will carry Arduino Gemma
Arduino Gemma It is a small, penny-sized plate that is ideal for inserting into this model sonic screwdriver. Once we have made the shape of the screwdriver with the aluminum plates, we place an Arduino Gemma board inside which in turn is connected to the LEDs and the speakers and these too, then the batteries and finally we close the lid.
The arduino gemma board will have to previously have the program that has been created for this purpose, otherwise the LEDs and speakers will not work. The project itself is not very original, but the use of Arduino Gemma and the programming of the board for its operation.
Personally, this device has caught my attention, not only because of the relationship with Doctor Who but also because of the functionality it gives to a board like Arduino gemma and the possibilities that this can give.
Arduino Gemma is a still incipient project in the Arduino Community and there are few functions or utilities that it still presents, but thanks to these projects the utilities of this board will grow or at least a path of possibilities will be opened.you don't think?
