My adventures with Arduino

About two month ago, someone I know told me about this micro-controller called Arduino that can be used to make some cool things. So, I started experimenting with it and I have to say it really is very cool. You can make robots with it, control your lights, open or close your curtains, etc. The possibilities are endless. Since then, I have been playing around with it.

Over this weekend, I tried getting it to open and close my curtains. I was half successful. I can get it to close but opening it is a problem because the rope gets tangled. Here is a video of the curtain closing (and stopping mid way)

Here’s a video of the fan being controlled from my computer:
