Create a remote display and control for your iPod with Arduino

After using an original version for almost a year, Christopher Monaco has revisited his iPod remote display control unit and completely redesigned it from scratch. In the second iteration the enclosure has been created with a commercial 3D printing service, and the user interface simplified for ease of use while driving. The original features carried over include track forward/back, play/pause and display of the current track being played - for example:

Apart from being a useful device that solves a proble, we really think the design process is very well done. Christopher has gone to the effort to use design tools to create the PCB, enclosure ad created something that wouldn't be too far away from a real product prototype - impressive. For complete details, visit his project page. And for more, we're on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.

Have you been reading about Arduino and the types of projects created, but not sure whrere to start? Then order one our Experimenter's Kit for Arduino:

The package includes a wide variety of parts, sensors and modules including: a servo motor, lights, buttons, switches, sound, sensors, breadboard, wires and more. Furthermore a Freetronics Eleven Arduino-compatible board is included to make this an extensive hobby experimenter, inventor and starter kit. 

However we don't leave you alone to figure it all out, included is a great project and instruction booklet, plus access to a supporting web page and software examples. In other words - this is everything you need to get started for a fun range of electronics and Arduino related projects! So to get started or for more information and to order, check out the product page.
