Machines Imitate Life

In an increasingly virtual world, the ability to simulate touch provides powerful advantages, for example allowing an online shopper to "feel" a shirt fabric. Enter the discipline of haptics, which involves using robotics with sophisticated feedback and controls to simulate a tactile experience for the user.

New Arduino Esplora With Built-in Onboard Sensors

The Arduino Esplora is a microcontroller board derived from the Arduino Leonardo. The Esplora differs from all preceding boards in that it provides a number of built-in, ready-to-use set of onboard sensors for interaction. The Esplora has onboard sound and light output interfaces. It alos has the potential to expand its capabilities with two Tinkerkit input and output connectors, and a socket for a color TFT LCD screen. Like the Leonardo board, the Esplora uses an Atmega32U4 AVR microcontroller with 16 MHz crystal oscillator and a micro USB connection capable of acting as a USB client device, like a mouse or a keyboard.   The Esplora has the following on-board inputs and outputs : Analog joystick with central push-button  two axis (X and Y) and a center pushbutton. 4 push-buttons  laid out in a diamond pattern. Linear potentiometer  slider near the bottom of the board. Microphone  for getting the loudness (amplitude) of the surrounding environment. Light sensor  for getting the brightness. Temperature sensor  reads the ambient temperature Three-axis accelerometer  measures the board's relation to gravity on three axes (X, Y, and Z) Buzzer  can produce square-waves. RGB led  bright LED with Red Green and Blue elements for color mixing. 2 TinkerKit Inputs  to connect the TinkerKit sensor modules with the 3-pin connectors. 2 TinkerKit Outputs  to connect the TinkerKit actuator modules with the 3-pin connectors. TFT display connector  connector for an optional color LCD screen, SD card, or other devices that use the SPI protocol.
