A step-by-step tutorial intended to familiarize you with ProtoSnap and Arduino's IDE and programming language.
An Arduino powered bot made of a bunch of SparkFun bits.
Ever wanted to program ATmega328s outside of the Arduino IDE? Wonder how to tweak the bootloader? We show you all sorts of tips and tricks for Programmer's Notepad!
Hit a button on the computer and wirelessly reprogram your ATmega328, on the first try, every time.
Hacking a car with active RFID so that it knows when you are approaching.
Learn how to add the TTS256 Text to Speech chip to the Voicebox shield and write an Arduino Sketch that allows you to interface with your system.
Learning to use Ponoko's laser cutting service for building your very own Snake Stomp Pads!
Detailed tutorial on the construction of the NCWP Scavenger Box and the story behind it.
She's always sending me mixed signals. Checkout this twist on a stoplight costume using MOSFETs, XBee, and plenty of blinking LEDs.
Using batch files and AVR MKII programmers, this tutorial will show you how to program multiple micro-controllers at the same time. Although it this method requires a bit more desk space, it does offer an affordable alternative to the traditional "all-in-one" ganged programming devices.
Let's squeeze the current consumption of an ATmega down to 1uA.
How to turn a lift into a TARDIS (or trigger sound playback using the sensor of your choice)
This tutorial covers the undocumented HID USB functionality of Arduino 1.0, which allows you to turn your ProMicro into a USB keyboard or mouse.
The new EL Escudo Dos makes it easier than ever to set up EL displays. Here's how to get started!

A quick introduction to SparkFun's Arduino-compatible Protosnap Minibot.
This tutorial will guide you through how to make your very own set of "fast-switching tweezers". What are these? They are a tool that we use here at SparkFun to more easily and quickly test bare LEDs. Sure, you can use a multimeter or a battery, but when you're handling thousands of LEDs and you need to quickly verify color, any amount of efficiency gain is worth the effort!! Best of all, these can light up an LED connected with either polarity.
Check out this cool project from Jeff Miller featuring the SparkFun Arduino Pro Mini!
A long week but lots of new toys to post. Checkout the new Arduino Pro boards and a new miniature GPS logger!
New ST micro LPR530AL dual axis gyro breakout boards, and ADXL345 evaluation board with Arduino/FAT32 combo, soldering class on Sept. 30th, smart card socket, and a powerful new GS407 GPS receiver module.
If you're looking to chat with those on the "other side," might as well do it with Arduino!
I met Reagan at Maker Faire New York, and I ask him some questions about his recent project: an animatronic Jackal helmet from Stargate.
Minibloq - a free and open-source graphical programming environment for Arduino.
EL Escudo new shield for Arduino. A new class for Monday and a few new user submitted projects.
HacKidemia is a global organization that runs hands-on STEM workshops for kids in more than 25 countries around the world with 8000 children and 400 mentors. They were asked to bring the project to Africa and launched an indiegogo campaign two months ago: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/afrimakers. The main intention is to enable African makers -- kids in particular -- to use making and prototyping for solving local challenges like access to clean water, energy and information. SparkFun has donated the materials for 7 maker boxes - enough to support the initial campaign goal to equip each of the 7 hubs with a set of Arduino's, sensors, books, and tools.
Check out what Spark Fun customers are doing with their Arduinos.
Modkit - A new web-based graphical programming interface for Arduino looking for a little help
A look at implementing the Arduino blink.ino sketch as an explicit state machine. To further explore state machines, an alarm clock state diagram is drawn and implemented.
We have a few new/revised products we wanted to quickly highlight!
Arduino formally announces the Arduino Uno and Arduino Mega 2560.
Visual programming languages are a unique way to introduce tyro programmers to thinking like a programmer. Here are some of the great tools we've discovered that enable visual programming for Arduino.
If you want to write code for the Particle Photon, an online, "cloud" IDE isn't your only option. Check out our "Photon Development Guide" to see how you can set up a Photon development environment of your own.
