  • Improved Arduino Thermometer

    Sunday, November 6, 2011

    I went to Jaycar a few days ago and picked up some more components to play with. This meant I could upgrade my Arduino Thermometer so it's easier to read, plus added a Min/Max mode.

    It now uses 2 shift registers to drive the 8 LEDs of each of the 7-segment displays, and has a button to switch between live, minimum, and maximum temperature observations. Here's a video of it in action.

    Anyway, I think I'm about done with the thermometer concept now, so I won't bore you with it any longer. :)
