MSN Wallchart V3

Got round to finishing this project up and giving it its own box and reprinting the photos, it ended up looking quite good. I also added a little buzzer for when people log in.

Finished and hung at last

Doing the wiring on the the back was very frustrating, i spent a few hours doing it, and yes it is messy, very very messy

Project complete

Edit: i have since switched the arduino Decimila for a Stickduino (a cheaper bare bones arduino clone) so i can reclaim my arduino for other projects

  1. Pretty good post. I just came by your blog and wanted to say
    that I’ve really enjoyed browsing your posts. Any way
    I’ll be subscribing to your blog and I hope you write again soon!

  2. thanks i hope i have some new stuff that i have done soon

  3. Hey i’ve come across your project since i’m looking to get my msn to talk to my arduino. ive tried by using a VB.net script as an ‘Add-In’ using the serial port to send a command but msn doesnt like it. Could you tell me how you got your men to talk?

    Thanks

    Ray

  4. Sure thing, posted a new article on how to get MSN and ardunio to connect

  5. Another awesome project, Sorry for all these comments at once but once again i envy your arduino skills.

  6. um yes, right skills, about that
    nah all of these have fairly simple arduino code, it was figuring out how to get the computer side of things to work, that was the challenge
