About me

I'm just a simple man who loves electronics. I live in Spain and I've studied electronic engineering in UB, University of Barcelona. ELECTRONOOBS all started as a simple Instagram account where I was posting all my daily projects and homework. I soon started working on this webpage where I’m currently posting new tutorials every day. As you can see, there is a bit of everything. Electronics with Arduino, basic circuits, robotics, 3D printing and so on.

Tutorial - DIGITAL MAGIC 8 BALL

In this tutorial we will see how to make a Magic 8 ball with the Arduino. This is based on the real magic ball which is based on liquid and floating principle with a plastic dice with 20 answers inside. Once you shake the ball, a random side of the dice will get on top of the black liquid and a r... view more

Tutorial - VFD - VARIABLE FREQUENCY DRIVER

This is a prototype on a Variable Frequeny Driver or VFD. With this circuit we would control the frequency of high AC voltage and by that the speed of induction AC motors. Since we work with high voltage, is a dangerous circuit so be careful. The idea is to turn 230V AC voltage to DC vo... view more

Tutorial - ARDUINO RADIO CHAT

Remember the keyboard PCB we've made in this past tutorial? Well now I'll give a use to this PCB. We will make a radio based chat that will work just as a walkie talkie but with text instead of voice. So, for text, we need a keyboard and this PCB is perfect for this project. I'll make t... view more

Tutorial - ARDUINO TETRIS LED GAME

Today we will see how to build this awesome TETRIS game made with arduino. The project also has sounds as for example the tetris theme and other beeps and you could add any other sound to the SD card inside the DFplayer module. To create the matrix I've used the well known WS2812 LED addressable ... view more

Tutorial - PID DC BRUSHED MOTOR CONTROL

In this tutorial we will see how to control one axis but using BRUSHED DC MOTORS. Usually CNC axis will move using stepper motors in an open loop control. Here we will see an example of close loop control with an optic encoder as feedback. Why do this? well, for bigger motors, the price of steppe... view more

Project - RETROPIE CONSOLE ON RASPBERRY PI

I always enjoyed playing all these old games. I love quake, MK4 and all SEGA games. Having a console that has all these games would be great. And having this console made by myself is even better. Having this inside of a microwave, well that's a lot better. We will sue an raspberri pi 3, an SD ca... view more

Project - DC non invasive current clamp for oscilloscope DIY

Having an oscilloscope it's a very nice thing. It's a quite useful tool. But with the basic probes you could only observe voltage values. What if we want to observe current??? There are many types of oscilloscope probes each with its own field of application. The probe takes care of the very... view more

Tutorial - DIY DRONE WITH EBAY PARTS

I don't consider this homemade because I'm using only off the shelf parts. I bought all the parts from ebay for a decent price. I was looking for the lowest price parts. THe body I've used is 3D printed but for a few more dollars you could buy that from eBay as well. The total price is around 150... view more
