Let’s start exploring a bit more about Intel Edison. As you may already know, Intel provides 2 different hardware platforms to work with Edison development board: the core module is called Intel Edison Compute Module, while the 2 extension boards are called Intel Edison Arduino Board and Intel Edison Breakout Board respectively. We refer to them as the Arduino module and mini-breakout board, respectively. The tutorial of this week is called Getting Started with Intel Edison Mini Breakout Board: Read the rest of this entry »
Last week Temboo just added new Conditions features to its IoT Mode interface, making it even easier to connect your Arduino to the Internet of Things! Now, the functionality of Temboo’s Device Coder has been extended to all 2000+ Choreos in the Temboo Library, meaning that data collected from sensors attached to an Arduino Yún can be used to trigger any cloud process, and responses from the cloud can be used to trigger all sorts of hardware actions on your board.

A new version of the Arduino IDE (1.6.1) is available at the download page!
A month ago we released the version 1.6.0 of the Arduino IDE. We then received lots of feedback: issues on Github, emails on the developers mailing list and, most important, forum messages. We fixed a lot of issues, here is a brief list:
- Better Yún discovery mechanism (thanks Ron Guest)
- Better SoftwareSerial library (thanks Matthijs Kooijman)
- Native dialogs on MacOSX on the Java 7+ experimental version
- Improved library name matching, so IRemote library won’t conflict with RobotIRremote library (thanks Paul Stoffregen)
- Fixed bug on Windows when attempting to open a sketch by double clicking it
As usual, the complete list of fixes and credits is available here.
We are already working on release 1.6.2, with some very useful features and user experience improvements. Stay tuned!
Jochen Maria Weber is a Researcher and Designer at the intersection of Interaction- and Industrial Design. He shared with us Project Cuckoo, a project running on Arduino Yún and looking at our interactions with intercepted social networks and how alternative ways of communicating might change them: Read the rest of this entry »
‘Social Vibes’ is a Masters Degree (MSc.) project, in Interactive Media by Cian McLysaght, at the University of Limerick, Ireland. They shared with us their project, running on Arduino Uno, composed by a physical artifact designed and created specifically for an installation adopting the fundamental sound mechanisms used in a vibraphone, know also as a ‘Vibe’: Read the rest of this entry »
Some days ago we posted on Intel Makers Community an educational tutorial focused on Intel Edison. Our team explored Internet Queries to build a lasercut Movie Recommender and help you find a good movie title extracted from The Open Movie Database starting from the 50s to the 10s and according to your favourite genre: Read the rest of this entry »
And there is more! You can take part of the event not only as a visitor but also as a protagonist. Today we’ve opened the call for volunteers, projects and talks. You’ll be having fun with us and Arduino!
Are you interested? These are the requirements: Read the rest of this entry »
