Arduino: LEDs animations controlled by a button.

October 18, 2012 Leave a comment

This project refers to an Arduino sketch which is used to produce animations with more than one LED. You can place several LEDs in a row or in any order you wish and enjoy the flow of traffic. Furthermore, if you wish to change the animation you can choose the next in line by pressing a special button. One such application might remind you of the Christmas lights.

2D Sprite Animation & Movement Engine For ‘The Crime Tracer’.

October 17, 2011 Leave a comment

The project ‘tct‘ (The Crime Tracer) made me wish to create an engine for moving various sprites in two-dimensional games. This engine is a prototype and is continuously optimized. It has also been developed with the help of Pygame and Python. Additionally, you can find a rough example that uses the engine of the project ‘tct‘ (The Crime Tracer).

Arduino: LEDs animations controlled with a button and a 8-bit 74HC595 shift register.

June 29, 2010 Leave a comment

This project refers to an Arduino sketch which is used to produce LEDs animations. So, we use an 8-bit shift register (namely the 74HC595). This way we can drive 8 different LEDs in the output committing only three PINS of the Arduino.

If we want to drive more LEDs, we connect into a cascade form two or more (depending on the number of LEDs we want to support) shift registers and act accordingly.
