Cool projects that have been published so far as part of WiFi Week 2:
- Pachube with LEGO™ MINDSTORMS™ NXT – Connect and display your sensor data online using Patchube!
- Weather From Google – make your NXT fetch weather data so you’re never stuck in the rain again without your jacket!
Pachube seems really interesting. It is a system with a simple API that allows your networked device to communicate arbitrary data to a hosting site with XML. This creates a “feed” which you can then display this data in various ways using apps.
- A ThingSpeak project, which is a bit like Pachube but apparently has better graphics.
- A news reel parser, with it you can display the latest headlines from Google News.
That’s some pretty cool stuff! I can’t wait to see them in action.
