If any of the info on this website was useful for your projects or made your head spin with creative ideas, and you would like to share a token of your appreciation- a donation would be massively appreciated!

Your donation will go to my Robotics Fund, straight towards more sensors, actuators, books, and journeys. It takes a lot to continue building these robots, and I’m really thankful of everyone who helps encourage me along the way.

Sale Extended! Buttons for Arduino & Meters for Arduino

The sale for Buttons for Arduino and Meters for Arduino has been extended (it was actually extended starting on Monday but I only posted it now xD) until the end of Sunday in celebration of a fantastic Open Hardware Summit and World’s Maker Faire NYC! :)

Meters for Arduino

Buttons for Arduino


Apps4Arduino – SALE and INTRODUCING Buttons for Arduino!


Introducing Buttons for Arduino!

Interact with your Arduino in a quick, native and intuitive way using Buttons for Arduino!

=== Features ===

✔ Turn on and off your Arduino outputs with ease using the circle buttons
✔ Finely adjust the PWM outputs using the rotary sliders
✔ Customize button colours
✔ Full-screen mode (supported on 10.7+)
✔ No coding necessary
✔ API available

=== Works great for ===

:: Mood lighting – Have some LEDs connected to your Arduino for backlighting your computer desk, or similar? Easily control which LEDs are on and off to create a mixture of colours to suit your mood

:: Quick testing – Experiment with different outputs and combinations for your project, without touching a single line of code

:: Teaching students – Focus on the outputs and circuits without distractions. Demonstrate what happens when an output is on/off, and when the PWM changes from low to high

:: Live demos – Effectively communicate your project’s output ideas and concepts with others

:: And more! – Arduino projects are only limited by your imagination! Create the next best project, and use Buttons for Arduino to control it

To use Buttons for Arduino with your Arduino, install the ButtonsApp library from Buttons For Arduino’s support website and upload the included example sketch to your Arduino.

That’s it! Sit back, relax, and press some buttons!
