Arduino Day Antwerp


Sign Up (click the image for more info), because we will be there with a MINI Arduino-JAM: jamming the game “Simon Says” with some LED’s and push buttons in about 4 hours of time.


Arduino JAM V 2014

Our 5th Arduino Jam @timelab has ended. In about 48 hours most teams went from idea to working prototype. The outcome was superb and it has been a real fun weekend!

  • TEAM 1: Pixel Fighter (Joeri)
    Joeri started creating a 2 player fighting game with music on the Arduino Uno without any extra IC’s, hoping he would be able to show something at the end, but managed to actually finish the game within 48 hours.
  • TEAM 2: POV stream (Erik, Toon, Yannick)
    Eric wanted to make a POV disk showing streaming video and teamed up with Toon and Yannick. All hardware is embedded into the disk. They where able to show colours and sending colour data wireless to the disk, but needed more time to actually show a picture, so they went for psychedelic colour effects.
  • TEAM 3: Pick & Place (Koen, Maarten)
    Koen brought his robot arm and wanted it to pick up stuff, recognize it and place it by colour. Together with Maarten, he had lot’s of trouble making the arm move, and ran out of time to complete the project, but did learn a lot.
  • TEAM 4: Cube Synth (Maarten, Valerio, Jeroen)
    Valerio was into music and wanted to do something with synthesizers and the Arduino. Together with Maarten and Jeroen, he started working en the Synth Cube, making different sounds and colours depending how you turn over the cube.
  • TEAM 5: Auto Cook (Ziping, Glenn)
    Ziping needed a machine to cook his diner, so together with Glenn he started working on one. This machine has a build-in display, showing different recipes. Once you make your choice, the machine will auto add herbs, put on the heat and turn it back off when finished. All you need to do is, stir from time to time.
  • TEAM 6: Urby the egg (Jan, Bert, Midas)
    Jan had to lay his egg, so he did and teamed up with Bert and Midas. Remember Furby, this is even better. It has no fur and thus, making it a real Urby. This egg reacts to human input using light, movement and sound.
  • TEAM 7: Photographia (Jolien, Tom)
    Jolien wanted to take stunning pictures, and figured out with Tom, how to use the Arduino to auto dim the lights, trigger the flash on sound or/and movement (braking line of sight) and even how to adjust the trigger point in time. She did take some very cool pictures. AND THEY WON !

Get ready for the 5th ARDUINO JAM

Hello fellow Arduino enthusiasts, we are currently preparing the 5th Arduino Jam.

Starting at the 21th of February 2014 at 17h00 end ending 48 hours later on the 23th at 17h00, we will join together once again to let our creativity and knowledge flow into a yet non existing Arduino project that probably will be featured on instructables or hackaday.

So enter the jam and join our quest for an Arduino- and joyful weekend.

If you’re new to the concept of the jam?

OK, but how did it all start?
What did we do at the first Jam?
What did we do at the second Jam?
What did we do at the third Jam?
What did we do at the fourth Jam?

Arduino Jam IV Video’s

Three short videos of the following projects

* Moto Midimicidiale (Toon, Valerio )

* “We are Vandalous” (Yannick, Koen, Ziping)

* “Bread spread” (Joeri, David, Bart)

Arduino Jam IV 2013

Our 4th Arduino Jam @timelab has ended. We’re happy to announce that all the teams finished there project just in time. In about 48 hours they all went from idea to working prototype. The outcome was superb AND all projects did work !

  • TEAM 1 : Write glow in the dark (Midas, Lukas)
    Writing with light on a surface covered with “glow in the dark” paint. This team made an automated laser light that can write any word, using servos an a green pen laser.


  • TEAM 2 : We are “Vandalous” (Yannick, Koen, Ziping)
    Willing to take over the world, without being noticed, this team designed an automated graffiti CNC machine, able to create graffiti from a bitmap. As thieves in the night, they would hang their machine to a building, coming back in the morning to admire the auto-painted graffiti.


  • TEAM 3 : Fountain in a box (Jolien, Jantje, Henri)
    With this project the contestants build a mini Las Vegas fountain with moving water beams and light effects, all interacting on the surrounding sounds, Using (obviously) water, servos, LED-lights and water valves.


  • TEAM 4 : Bread spread (Joeri, David, Bart)
    What would become of the world, if we didn’t have any games. Inspired by the game “Simon Says”, Bread spread is a game where the player has to repeat the sequence of bread spreads shown on a screen, by hitting big wooden buttons in the correct order.


  • TEAM 5 : Word clock (Tom, Rogier)
    A clock not as we know it. It’s digital, but doesn’t show numbers. It shows you time with words, using LED-strips and a well made box with laser-cut letters.


  • TEAM 6 : RGB Light Rig (Jeroen, Thijs)
    We are all used to Photoshop effects and after effects, but with this Light Rig, this team wanted to build a “pre-effects” installation, adding light effects before one takes his picture, changing the mood of a picture with real light.


  • TEAM 7 : Moto Midimicidiale (Toon, Valerio )
    We all start dancing to music, don’t we. How about reversing the process. Why not start dancing and let the music flow out of the moves you make, converting dance into music, using various sensors like : Wii nunchuck, ldr, potentiometers to capture the movement and gestures and convert them into midi signals.


    • TEAM 8 : Position from sound waves(Erik)
      Inspired by sound waves and positioning, Eric decided to make an installation that uses piezo elements for position sounds produced by ticking on a surface. A LED strips shows you, with real cool light effects, the linear position of the place where the sound was produced.
