A band of LEGO Bionicle musicians gets outfitted with servos and bang out some catchy beats, with the help of an Arduino Uno board, and the Clavia Nord Beat iPad sequencer app.
To showcase their Teagueduino hardware platform, Teague Labs created this physical side-scrolling ‘video game’ based on Super Mario Bros. Looks pretty entertaining based on reactions.
Never be without a Rock, Paper, Scissors sparring buddy again with Steve Hoefer’s Playing Glove: this arduino gadget will not only play against you, but learns from your moves.
