The workbenches of hobbyists, hackers, and makers have transform overrun with microcontrollers, computers-on-a-chip that power homebrewed video games, robots, toys, and more. In Making Things Talk, Tom Igoe, one of the vital creators of Arduino, shows how to make these gadgets talk.
Whether you wish to have to connect some sensors to the Internet or create a device that can interact wirelessly with other creations, this book shows you what you wish to have. Even though they’re powerful, the projects in this book are inexpensive to build: the Arduino microcontroller board itself ranges from around $25 to $40. The networking hardware covered here includes Ethernet, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and may also be had for $25 to $50.
Fully up to date for the up to date Arduino hardware and software, this book allows you to combine microcontrollers, sensors, and networking hardware to make things… and make them talk to one another!
