Matt Haines (@beardedinventor) and Tom Byrne (@tlbyrn) spoke to Elecia and Chris about Electric Imp (@electricimp). This discussion goes far beyond our first with Matt (Episode 6!). It is more software and implementation oriented than last week's Amp Hour.
In the vein of "what do I do after I've made an LED blink from a webpage?":
- Tom's Neopixel Weather project (instructable!)
- Mars Curiosity rover that mirrors what is happening on Mars (provide your own Martian)
- Elecia's are-you-ok widget Sparkfun tutorial, thanking Matt for his help with cleaning (ahem, re-writing) the code
- Electric Imp github repository, including the extensive webservices page
- Hackathon entry Twitch controls a HexBot via Electric Imp led to an excited discussion of Twitch Plays Pokemon
- Matt's Hackaday Prize (SPACE!) entry that uses an Imp to show when the ISS is overhead
- MakeDeck is making Electric Imp dev kits for OEM development.
- Imp page devoted to the question under Next Steps (also, the new Squirrel documents mentioned on the show are up!)
Finally, the SparkFun contest winner was announced. There were many great entries, choosing a winner was difficult. Ken M (@Deamiter) won the grand prize. Luckily, Matt and Tom brought two April board + Electric Imp sets to give away so Chris Svec (@christophersvec) and Alex Irvine (@EternalPractice) were runners up. Thank you to all who participated, your ideas were awesome and we loved to hear about them.
