One of my courses at the university included a module with microcontrollers. Since I discovered that my knowledge of electronics can be combined with programming to create anything I ever needed in my life, I wanted to learn more. So, I started experimenting on my spare time on a few projects (see photos and videos above). These projects really excited me cause I could create something from scratch without being obstructed by anything (apart from money).
At the university, we built our own development board with a PIC microcontroller and some of my projects are based on this board. But I didn’t stay there. Soon I started learning about AVR microcontrollers too that have the same basic principles, but I just used a different way to program them. Around that time, I discovered www.instructables.com! An amazing website to learn ANYTHING new! And that’s where I got the inspiration for the projects in the right column!
