At last weekend’s HOPE Conference in New York City, the EFF released the code for their experimental hacker alpha wireless router software specifically designed to support secure, shareable Open Wireless networks. We are offering this hacker alpha release to engage enthusiastic technical users who would like to help us test, develop, improve, and harden the […]
Luca Dentella has developed a webapp providing another way to upload sketches to Arduino Yun. The project allows you to upload a new sketch using a protected web page, easily accessible also over the Internet. It’s based on Ajax and can be found on Luca’s website. Via the contact form.
While testing out various sensors, Steve from Hackshed.co.uk thought it would be fun to make the Arduino actually tweet out what the current status of our office is. “The Arduino records the current, minimum, maximum and temperature change as well as humidity and then sends out a tweet to a Twitter account with an update […]
John Boxall of Tronixstuff has posted on the XOBXOB Internet of Things Platform. “The purpose of this article is to demonstrate a new platform – XOBXOB (pronounced “zob-zob”) that gives users (and Arduino users in particular) a method of having remote devices connect with each other and be controlled over the Internet. At the time […]
Todd Harrison, member of the Superstition Amateur Radio Club (SARC), posted this video by Steve Bowen: APRS and GPS networking, operations and theory This presentation does not cover how to setup and use Automatic Packet Reporting System (APRS) but does get into its origins, limits, functionality and usage.
The Hoz directs our attention to this Lifehacker article explaining how to setup the R-Pi as your own personal VPN. The project hardware requires only standard R-Pi peripherals, including keyboard, mouse, monitor, SD card and Ethernet connection. You’ll also need a free account with LogMeIn. (They point out that OpenVPN may be a good alternative […]
LVX systems is developing a system using led lighting to connect to the internet. modulation is done at frequencies that are imperceptible to humans. Will moths be the first biological organism to catch a computer virus? Via Geek.com
This is an old version, see the latest version on the documentation wiki. The Dangerous Prototypes web platform is a tiny server designed for networked hacks where a full PC is inconvenient. There’s lots of interesting projects that bridge the internet to microcontrollers, but most of them have a PC in the middle to handle […]
This is VA7DB’s homemade build of the web server on a business card project Ian posted at Hack a Day. A PIC microcontroller handles incoming connections and serves files from a microSD card. An ENC28J60 ethernet MAC/PHY provides the network interface. There’s a live site, but you’ll have to find the link yourself, we don’t […]
