WeMOS D1 ESP8266 vs Arduino Uno, Arduino Due and Teensy 3.2. Which one is the fastest board?


In this video we are going to compare the computational speed of the WeMOS D1 ESP8266 based Arduino compatible board with the computational speed of the most popular Arduino boards and the Teensy 3.2. We can call this video ESP8266 vs Arduino! Let’s get started! A few weeks ago, in a similar video [...]

Arduino Tutorial: ESP8266 OTA. Update the WeMOS D1 Over the Air (OTA).


In this video we are going to see how to wirelessly update the code of our Arduino project, using the WeMOS D1 ESP8266 based board. We are going to perform an update to the ESP8266 OTA. This is an impressive, and very useful feature. If you want to see how to update your ESP8266 board [...]

Arduino Real Time Clock and temperature Monitor with 3.2″ Color TFT display


In this video we are building an Arduino Real Time clock and temperature monitor with a big 3.2" Color TFT display. We are using a DS3231 Real Time clock module to get the time, the date and the temperature. The heart of the project is the powerful Arduino Due board, which can drive the display [...]

Teensy VS Arduino – Which one is faster?


I wanted to find out if Teensy 3.2, despite its small size, is faster than the Arduino Due, the fastest Arduino board available today. So I build a simple project where both boards run the same sketch, Newton's approximation of Pi for 500.000 iterations. Which one is faster? The board that finished first. Teensy or [...]

Arduino Tutorial: Connecting to the Internet using the GPRS service with a GSM shield a Nokia 5110


Arduino GPRS tutorial Connecting to the Internet using the GPRS service is very easy using an Arduino and a TinySine GSM shield. That opens up a whole new world of projects. Our projects can now easily sense the environment and log that data in an online database even from remote areas! This project, [...]
