I have been quite busy in the past few months, and did not really have time to post updates on the older projects or mention the new ones but here is a quick run down:
- sheevaplug : yep, after looking around for a very low cost server sollution , a friend mentionned this article : link, so i bit the bullet and bought a Sheevaplug (ordered at NewIt ): it was a bit tough at first, having never worked with a headless server before , but in the end i learned a great deal, so it is now runing debian from a 4 gig sd card, and a wifi dongle aswell as an arduino are connected to it: this leads me to the next point
- the hydroduino : you might have guessed it, it will be connected to the sheevaplug (for web acess and data storage amongs other things) i have continued working on the code aspect of the project (serial listener system, lightweight database integration using sqlite etc) , still in python : expect some big updates soon
- gui / interaction methods: in my man machine interface class, i was tasked to work on some original photogallery, with original methods of interaction beeing a bonus , and it had to be coded in Processing, as per instructions: here is a result of about 10 days of work and experimentation:
