An Arduino based #coronavirus detector based on infrared temperature sensor.

This detector has the following functions:

Digital infrared temperature sensor above the mask can detect the body temperature in real time and show the temperature to others.

The detector on the other side is used to detect the temperature of the person I have contacted.

If the other person’s temperature is normal, the RGB LED ring in the left eye part is green.

If the other person ’s temperature exceeds 38 degrees Celsius, the RGB LED ring is red and accompanied by an alert, indicating that he is a potential carrier, so I will advise him to go to the hospital for treatment.

Someone Built a Distraction-Free Cellphone With a Working Old-School Rotary Dial

The smartphone changed the world, but it wasn’t all for the better. Mobile devices are packed full of endless productivity-killing distractions, and the ability to actually make a phone call almost seems like an afterthought now. A frustrated Justine Haupt came up with an unorthodox solution: she designed and built a mobile phone with a rotary dial that looks like it’s 40 years old.

There’s an entire generation that probably won’t be able to make sense of Haupt’s Rotary Cellphone or why it has a bizarre circular wheel affixed to the top. For the rest of us who suffered through a time when placing calls meant spinning a plastic wheel, Haupt’s creation seems like it was brought to Earth from a parallel dimension where mobile phones took an entirely different evolutionary route, and where technologies like touchscreens never came to fruition.

144 7-segment displays make up this delightful digital clock

Using 7-segment displays to make a clock is nothing new, but what if you combined 144 of them together to create an epic LED timepiece? That’s exactly how this project was made, allowing it to show surprisingly smooth mega-numbers and a colon set at an angle.

The build itself is controlled by an Arduino Nano, along with an RTC module for timekeeping and 18 MAX7219 drivers to activate over a thousand (1,008) individual segments.

Apollo DSKY Computer Simulated with Arduino Uno and Touchscreen

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11’s landing, hacker Mark Wilson decided to create his own DSKY computer replica using an Arduino Uno and 240×320 LCD display. While Wilson is quick to note that it’s not a faithful representation of the Apollo Display and Keyboard module, or DKSY, it at least gives users a feel for the machine and even acts as a clock when you’re not pretending to travel through space.
