Edible Arduino Mousetrap

Hey Guys,

Sooo, I think I’m going to incorporate morse code into my project and an scan of the world wide web firstly gave me this;

but then also this slightly more informative tutorial.

This is SOS;

int pin = 13;

void setup()
{
pinMode(pin, OUTPUT);
}

void loop()
{
dot(); dot(); dot();
dash(); dash(); dash();
dot(); dot(); dot();
delay(3000);
}

void dot()
{
digitalWrite(pin, HIGH);
delay(250);
digitalWrite(pin, LOW);
delay(250);
}

void dash()
{
digitalWrite(pin, HIGH);
delay(1000);
digitalWrite(pin, LOW);
delay(250);
}

Cool right? I didn’t know you could type it in as dot and dash.

You can check out the full tutorial here.

People are also very wierd.

Have a great night!

Project #1 Embroidergram

 

For Project #1 i have created what I like to call the Embroidergram, derived directly from my mashup of Embroidered + Telegram.  Although it seems very straightforward, having never embroidered, nor sent a telegraph, I was at a bit of a loss.

 

I was easily able to find out how to embroider, and found these two YouTube videos to be very novice friendly.  Video #1  Video #2.

I came across this telegram which was sent by Mark Twain the morning after his obituary was posted in the NY Times.  As the story goes, he sent this from his hotel in London to his editor in New York.  In todays age this probably would have been Tweeted.  I thought it fitting for my telegram.

Final Steps
How does one properly display embroidery? My thoughts were it looks the best stretched in the hoop.

There she is… I was happily surprised with how this turned out.  One last iteration would be to sew the edges up a bit, but I wanted to get this up for you all to see before I potentially ruin the work.
