Visual Communication(Two Buinos)

Hello guys , I am trying to develop a way to communicate visually with another Makerbuino user using a mini camera module and a microphone. The camera module is the 5MP: OV5642 | Arduino Based Camera and there are pictures of it at images (2). there is a video for connection at .

I am still working on the transmission to a receipient screen that will have to be installed on the Makerbuino to recieve the transmitted data from the camera and microphone. Here is the code for the microphone
Sketch Code
This is the code to make a LED blink with sound.
You have to set the threshold so it’ sensible enough to make the led blink.

You connect an LED to PIN13 and the Sound Sensor to Analog Pin 0

int led = 13;
int threshold = 22; //Change This
int volume;

void setup() {
Serial.begin(9600); // For debugging
pinMode(led, OUTPUT);

void loop() {

volume = analogRead(A0); // Reads the value from the Analog PIN A0
//Debug mode

digitalWrite(led, HIGH); //Turn ON Led
digitalWrite(led, LOW); // Turn OFF Led

This string of cose is for making a led blink whenever the module detects sound

The plan is to make it be transmitted lets say next door to your neighbour without the help of a computer but I think the audio and visual feed might get mixed up.
the microphone module is here: imagesthere are some other modules to use for diy projects there too by the way the main purpose is for multiplayer games and just fun conversations I am not sure if transmitting wirelessly would work but here is a picture of one wireless transmission module! (Arduino 433Mhz RF Wireless Data Transfer
Runtime Projects
Transceiver 433mhz)
here is the link to the site :
And here is another wireless module that I am sure will work

NOTE: when installing this there has to be separate transmission for the microphone and the camera.And if anyone wants to add a joystick module to the makerbuino there is a link here and I might post about adding it I figured out the connection but it involves a somehow different camera moduleArduCAM_REVC_UNO_BACK1-150x150 (1)ArduCAM_REVC_2-150x150!
But we wil unplug the camera and connect it to the transmission module and connect the screen to the reciever module then then the microphone to another transmitter and the reciever to the speaker. You can choose to screw the screen to the makerbuino and all the coonections should be made with male and female connector cables.

Amazing. I hope you’ll success. If you do, i make same for the META to be able to communicate between Makerbuino and META or Makerbuino with Makerbuino or Meta with Meta. ood luck and keep us informed. Many thanks for your works. If you success, real multiplayers game could appear (since i wait it :D)

The only thing that may bother users of this hardware is the many parts you will have to add which might make the makerbuino bulky but a 3d printed assemly or a small box can house the stuff and be connected to the makerbuino

Yes, if it’s works and if your works on hardware is free Albert (Makerbuino) and Aurélien (Méta) could make some kits in their shops with some cool extend box to maintain the parts. First we have to ensure it’s works and see how many space it take. If the parts works fine another solution could be to make electonic cards and make it ithe kit with the new case of your Makerbuino / Méta. I think they could be interested to do it as Multiplayer is asked by alot players / users and make sell more consoles

The housing can also be used fo promote alberts wireless charging extension

Oh and by the way can someone pls make a Pokemon game like Pokémon red version (the Gameboy kind) for the makerbuino? ::confused:

It’s can be done but it’s a big works. ATM, there is no real team active. For a game like Pokemon, its easiest with a team to share works but there is some similare games. Else you can have a look at works done for META: Pico monsters to make a version for classic. Some as works on Pokemons like Worlds (You can have a look in Arduboy community and you could inspire of their works to start evec you’ll have some modifications to do to port it on Makebuino.
