TekTree


TekTree is an open source arduino project where I build and automate a christmas tree.

I got the idea when I saw my parent's build their christmas tree. My mom decided to build her christmas tree from old wood instead of getting a regular christmas tree (you know, the tree kind). At first I thought it looked really ugly but I did see some potential in it.

The blogs below show the entire process of building and automating my TekTree. If you decide to follow along please do share the results with me :)

TekTree part 4 - programming


In the last installment of the series I show you how to program the arduino to work with the TekTree we built. I would advise each and every one of you to download my sketch and try it but after that start experimenting with your own designs!

TekTree part 3 - Wiring


In the 3rd part of my TekTree project I'll show you guys how to wire everything. This time I even used separate colours for the power,ground and signal wires. So no more complaining ! ^_^ All in all I think the result looks absolutely wicked. Even without the arduino case which has yet to come in the mail. (and probably won't fit)

TekTree- The lasercutting proces


Last friday I actually got to cut the parts for my TekTree! So excited! This is by far the biggest "piece" I have ever lasercut but luckily everything went well. This in part is thanks to my brilliant friend Ron who helped me create the sketches for the lasercutter. Thanks again Ron!

TekTree - a christmassy surprise project


I'm very excited to announce a new maker project to you guys ! It will be simple, and thus reproducable, yet fun and quite possibly even useful. (oh, and a tad crazy)
