Saulius has been working on this project to use the Carambola2 dev board for portable Dropbox uploading. This eliminates the need for a PC, allowing pictures from a webcam be to uploaded directly using the dev board’s built-in WiFi.

Sometimes it’s overkill to use computer with 200W power consumption for 24/7 to do small task like upload picture from webcam to Dropbox every minute. In this article I will describe how save a lot of Watts and to have Carambola on Cloud!
