Simple automatic soap dispenser

Using an arduino, IR sensor, and a servo, the author built a pretty simple conversion for a pump action soap dispenser. Could be a simple project to do with kids. https://www.instructables.com/id/Automatic-Soap-Dispenser-Using-Arduino/

Another simple ventilator build

Clever build. I don’t see these builds ever making it to US due to regulations, and fear of lawsuits. But maybe other countries can use these ideas. https://www.instructables.com/id/Intro-RespiArt-a-Simply-Ventilator/

Cool looking wall art

Interesting build. One thing I might do differently is put an inner set of LED strips too. https://www.instructables.com/id/Wooden-Neopixel-Hexagon/

No contact soap dispenser

Nice build. Seems a bit overkill but if you have someone sick in the house or lots of folks… https://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-Easy-Non-Contact-Automatic-Hand-Sanitizer-Disp/

Interesting build for a shop filter

The author made a controller for the wood job to turn it on/off based on sound, remote, or a button. Also has a timer. Oh all based on an arduino.

Hacking the lightbulb

Pretty neat, apparently wifi enabled light bulbs by Tuya (which get rebranded alot) use the ESP8266, and can be reflashed to use the opensource project so you can customize the bulb yourself.

Cool delta plotter build

Not sure if I would make one myself, but its a pretty cool build overall. https://www.instructables.com/id/Delta-Plotter/

3D print your own hands free soap dispenser

I got a kick out of this one. basically its a simple plunger based build for a hands free soap dispenser. Uses an ardiuno, servo, and ultra sonic sensor. https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Make-Automatic-Soap-Dispenser-3D-Printed–1/
