First Steps with the Arduino-UNO | Maker, MakerED, Coding | Playing Music

First Steps with the Arduino-UNO | Maker, MakerED, Coding | Playing Music

ARDUINO-XMAS-SONGS-MUSIC..


Playing Music 

I was looking for a quick project with the Arduino which could get realized in less than half an hour and with the components from my Arduino Starter-Kit. I found this one for Christmas Music playing <===> Christmas songs with an Arduino Uno and a piezo buzzer <===> which I tried out as actually it was Christmas time. It was very easy to follow on the How-To… Please check the video below, where you can see and hear it in action.

.

.

There is not much to say about it as it is very well described in the tutorial. Check below please:

And as you know me, when creating a blog post, I give a bit more information about the theory and useful knowledge… Digging into it to understand about what it is 😉

Play Melody

programmerman-animatedThis example makes use of a Piezo Speaker in order to play melodies. We are taking advantage of the processors capability to produde PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) signals in order to play music.

A Piezo is nothing but an electronic device that can both be used to play tones and to detect tones. In our example we are plugging the Piezo on the pin number 9, that supports the functionality of writing a PWM signal to it, and not just a plain HIGH or LOW value.

The first example of the code will just send a square wave to the piezo, while the second one will make use of the PWM functionality to control the volume through changing the Pulse Width.

End Of The Year: Holidays Are Also Charity Days, Don’t Forget Please…

.

golden-heart-iconNearly any Culture worldwide is using the holidays of end of the year and Christmas, called also Xmas, to spend gifts and/or money to the poor on this planet. Don’t forget them and have a look on some good examples below on how to do…

.

sharing-iconWhen I do something for other people, I feel good, “says Peterson“. When you do something voluntarily for others, not only for its own interests, it is rewarded. In some mysterious way, serve as an “altruistic” (the opposite of selfishness) gives his own life more important. It seems that nature have put it in our genes, or that people are happy when they have the spirit of sharing, community spirit.

So, dear readers, make yourself feeling good and share this knol (unit of knowledge) with other people, thanks in advance 😉

Xmas & New Year @ Egypt

[MAK] In my country “Egypt” with a population of 80 millions, and the majority are Muslims, the Christmas has a different taste.  I have so many Christian friends; some are celebrating Christmas at 25th December and others on 7th of January.  I share with them the celebration whatever they do.  Sometimes I go with them to the Churches, and sometimes I just call to say Merry Christmas. Exactly, the same they share me all Muslim celebrations. On the New Year everybody celebrate.  Not necessary by drinking wine or whiskey, but starting a new year needs to wish all the best for everyone. 🙂

Xmas & New Year @ Luxembourg

[GM]: In my country Luxembourg with a population of 502,000 habitants only (2009-2010), one of the smallest country in the world, and the majority are Christians, there are different ways to celebrate Christmas. More and more people are using the Xmas Holidays for spending some nice vacation, others stay at home and have a good meal together with family and very faithful people are even visiting the church at midnight for the “Matins“…

What are Luxembourgers eating on Christmas eve and how do they celebrate it?

Personally I spend the 24th of December together with my spouse and a good meal at home and the 25th of December is getting celebrated by a good meal together with the family of my spouse. This year we will have 14 people invited by us at home. We will not anymore distributing gifts to the adults as years ago, but only the younger will get gifts and also the parents will get an envelope with collected money from the children as a gift.

.

We were also watching the film “Polar Express“. The Polar Express is a 2004 motion capture animated film based on the children’s book of the same title by Chris Van Allsburg. Written, produced, and directed by Robert Zemeckis, the human characters in the film were animated using live action performance capture technique, with the exception of the waiters who dispense hot chocolate on the train, because their feats were impossible for animated actors to achieve.
.
What do I and my spouse eating for the 24th of December?

.

As there will be the 25th of December again a big meal, so we decided this year to eat a “Fondue bourguignonne“, who is very digest… But we take our time and we have a good “starter” (entrée) who consists fromFoie gras” and some cheese with a good white wine, a “Muscat de Coyeux” (Muscat de Beaumes de Venise). And the Fondue with a good red wine an “Amarone”, Della Valpolicella 2006 de Lamberti.

.

What will get served on 25th of December with the whole family together?
