  1. What do you mean? …
    What do you mean? Write Arduino code? It’s not hard! Plenty of online examples which are? pretty easy to follow along

  2. This error has …
    This error has nothing to do with your code. Rather, it means your computer isn’t talking to? the arduino correctly. You might have the wrong COM port selected. Or, more likely, you need to choose the correct Arduino board in the tools/board menu

  3. This is the best …
    This is the best arduino tutorial I’ve seen.? You explain everything very good and it doesn’t get boring. Nice job 🙂

  4. it’s tricky to …
    it’s tricky to troubleshoot without seeing more – but can you try a different servo? check all of your wires – ensure they are connected. Could be a bad wire – especially a? ground. Post a video if you cannot figure it out and I’ll take a look

  5. I have a problem …
    I have a problem with my servo: When i hook it up like you do and upload the sample sweep program, my servo starts randomly moving. Also my arduino starts to connect and? reconnect all the time. Got any help for me? Thanks

  6. It’s supposed? to …
    It’s supposed? to be rather easy. the arduino code is available online.
    However, electronics beyond an LM317 or code more complicated than HTML just perplexes me to no end. So a tutorial on how to put it all together would be awsome.
    And thanks for the channel, I’ve learned so much watching your videos.

  7. This is just an …
    This is just an example, but the ability to control motors, lights, etc (output devices) with switches, sensors, etc (input devices) is incredible to me. Anything from home automation (automatically open curtains when sun is out), auto-email you if it detects a water? leak. Or you could use it to count how often someone walks over a sensor. Endless possibilities. Does that help?

  8. Interesting? – I’ll …
    Interesting? – I’ll have to see how hack-able those calipers are.

  9. Love the new intro, …
    Love the new intro, even if you copied Tormach’s ideas :-). ? Been meaning to film something like that myself, it looks great buddy.

  10. thanks for the …
    thanks for the upload. good stuff as always:)

    would love to see a tutorial of how to interface one of those cheap chinese digital? calipers to the arduino equipped with an LCD screen displaying the position of the caliper.

  11. Very interesting. …
    Very interesting. Just a quick question though. What would the intended? purpose of something like this be?
