To show off the really fun things you can do with an Electric Imp breakout as small as Aria, we are posting the latest build of our Electric Imp powered Neopixel ring. ImpOS code for this project is available on the MakeDeck GitHub page.
The latest version features:
* MakeDeck Electric Imp Aria * Sparkfun PowerCell LiPo charger * Adafruit 16 pixel Neopixel ring * 500mAh LiPo battery.
Control the color, brightness, pattern ect by:
* Pitchfork Color Picker * Agent hosted jQuery Color Picker * Twitter
Here is how the Twitter control works: The agent code includes the Electric Imp Twitter search code that allows you to constantly search ALL of twitter for a tweet with a specific term. Whenever it finds such a tweet it will return it and all of the tweet meta-information back to the agent. Then the code allows you to parse the tweet for additional information. This allows you to control the ring via Twitter. For example, if you tweet Neopixel, please change to #Red, with the example code, the Neopixel ring will find the tweet and change colors. You can choose any terms to search, and any to parse, allowing you change the colors around any text you like!
