Introducing Intelu00ae Edison


Intelu00ae Edison technology packs a robust set of features into its small size -- delivering great performance, durability, and a broad spectrum of I/O and software support. Those versatile features help meet the needs of a wide range of makers and pro-makers. Jim will provide an introduction to using Linux* with the Intel Edison technology's hardware, software, and cloud capabilities. In addition, he will outline how the new Intel Edison board, paired with a number of expansion boards, can support the thousands of ideas on the cusp of being invented.



PedX is a device for families worried about crossing the street safely with small kids. Attached to a stroller, PedX alerts vehicles to your presence via a bright LED, horn & one-touch camera for taking photos of bad drivers.

Turn flower pots into Internet of Things (IoT) moisture sensors: A live-build!


Inspired by the ''IoT'' and ''the cloud'' but don't know where to start? Create smarter products by easily combining low-cost modular hardware, easy-to-use software & free cloud services for a new twist to projects. Participants will influence a live build from start-to-finish for a garden moisture sensor that texts, tweets and data-logs information to the cloud when it needs water. The open-source hardware/software demo uses a wiring-based rapid prototype platform to program the microcontroller and Node.JS to trigger events in the cloud. Participants will leave with the ability to replicate this project and implement this tech in more designs.

The Tinusaur Project – minimal microcontroller platform to start with learning and creating things


Briefly, the Tinusaur is a minimal micro-controller hardware configuration based on Atmel AVR ATtiny family of products and more specifically those with DIP-8 case such as ATtiny25/ATtiny45/ATtiny85, ATtiny13 as well as their variations. The goal of the Tinusaur project is to have a simple, cheap and easily available quick-start platform for everyone interested in learning and making things.nThe board consists of the minimum required components for the micro-controller to work properly. There are no missing ones that could save on space and cost but may impact stability and also there are no extra components that you may not always need.
