PJRC – Embedded Electronic Projects

The Teensy is a complete USB-based microcontroller development system, in a very small footprint, capable of implementing many types of projects. All programming is done via the USB port.

Teensy USB Development Board

Version 3.6 features a 32 bit 180 MHz ARM Cortex-M4 processor with floating point unit. All digital and analog pins are 3.3 volts. Do not apply more than 3.3V to any signal pin.

What better way to learn the uC, than by Building your own Musical Instrument or Music Player. More Motivation than you can ask for.

RoboBrrd from RobotGrrl Erin

RoboBrrd is an animatronic character designed to be utilized as a tangible physical interface to interact with learning applications for elementary school students. A Smart Robot Bird. A Edutainment aid Bot Avian.

Impy RoboBrrd – Nicknamed ‘Impy’, short for ‘Important’. This is the latest RoboBrrd, and the official prototype that sparked the creation of an Instructable and intense documentation for the RoboBrrd robots! Impy uses a standard Arduino as a brain and has a NFC reader to see what hats it is wearing.

RoboBrrd from RobotGrrl Erin

With RoboBrrd being a tangible physical interface, the students will interact with RoboBrrd to control the in-game character within the learning application, and RoboBrrd will motivate the students to keep playing with chirps and celebratory dances. Different behaviours in RoboBrrd will be unlocked for every level that is beat,

Treasure Hunting and Metal Detectors

Here are some Metal Detector Projects that are quite interesting for the purpose of education and experiments in the Art of electronics. This site may be as old as Y2K, but the url / domain may have changed.

If you are interested in the theory behind the mag I can highly recommend the book The Magnetics Measurement Handbook by J.M. Janicke. Besides a good coverage of magnetics theory, it contains much of what you need to build a useful fluxgate Magnetometer, plus other devices.

Traditional Geophysical instruments include ground-penetrating radar, earth resistivity meter, infrared, and sonar, to name a few. Currently, earth resistivity projects are the most practical for the do-it-yourselfer, although some people have been tinkering with side scan sonar.

Detection of Gold

Just the Jeohunter really works and directly detects Gold – see below screen. And even gold-worth 9-15cm diameter cannon-balls get detected as “Gold” (golden ring & cannonball analyses has identical values), but thats because of the huge metal mass and special shape – alot MDs have “problems” in such situation and perhaps only a magnetometer really works here. btw. there is no difference if you search with Ground Balance minus 200, zero or plus 200, the gold detection always remains the same.

Detection of Gold - Metal Detection

There are historical records of DIY Enthusiasts having created what is known as the “Donkey Kong Gold Hunter”. This Gold Detector uses a Nintendo Unit after many Mods.
