Join Michael Lehman for an in-depth discussion in this video Expanding your build options, part of Android App Development: Internet of Things.
- No discussion about the future of…"The Internet of Things" would be complete…without thinking about what kind of new things…that are coming on the horizon…to allow you to build things.…So electronic design news, or EDN,…has a great article here about seven…alternative hacker boards.…These are boards that are designed…to allow you to write simple code,…hook up sensors and effectors,…and they provide you compute and memory,…and usually a USB connection to your development platform,…so that you can easily build custom application code…and try it out for yourself.…
There's a development board called a Pinocchio…that's coming down the road,…that's very small, very simple,…battery powered, WiFi and it's got a lot of…sensors on it,…and it's very useful for thinking…about building wearable devices.…There's a company called Spark.io…that builds mesh networks of one WiFi enabled device…and a bunch of what they call scouts.…It's collected together in a metaphor…that they call a troop.…And that way you can collect data…from a number of different pieces,…
