Hi fellow enthusiasts in South Australia,
I’ll be attending the Hackerspace - Adelaide, South Australia Sat 9th Feb at about 2pm to do a basic tutorial and share my early experiences on using the electric imp. You are all welcome. The address is: Level 9, 80 King William Street, Adelaide (note, this is the new address, so don’t go to Peel st)
I want to come and show you guys the electric imp (http://electronhobbies.com/wireless/110-electric-imp.html) and what you can do with it. I’ve been playing with this for a while and created an instructable as a basic introduction for those that want to have a look.
It’s an ARM Cortex processor plus 802.11b/g/n WiFi in an SD card form factor. Yes ‘n’ as well. It’s got 6 GPIO’s available for you to configure to be what you want them to be. There is a breakout board and an Arduino shield available as well.
I’ll go through how to configure the imp to connect to the internet via WiFi (uses a ‘blink-up’ processes), how to use the browser based IDE to program the imp in squirrel and get the imp recording and uploading to a web site. We can also chat about some of the other things it can do (and some it can’t do).
Hope to see you about 2pm Sat 9th Feb.
