I’ve recently purchased the new Arduino Ethernet shield. This new shield has been revised to have a micro SD card slot that I hear can read/write cards sized up to 2GB. This can be useful for serving up files or even making torrent clients (albeit slow).
The first project that I have completed is a small program that will upload the temperature of my room every 10 seconds to an online service called Pachube, which is a service for uploading sensor data.
I used some code found at Pachube, modified it a bit, and combined it with some code from one of Adafruit’s tutorials. You can see my Pachube feed here.
In the future, I plan on adding some more sensors and also combining it with a web server run from the Arduino.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
