Our things can tell us a story…if they have a voice…if they are connected. What can our things tell us? How about how much power they use? How about if someone is in your house? How about your toaster updating Twitter? A new generation of products and services for “connected things” are being created as we speak. Be a part of the story…
ThingSpeak is an open web of things platform to allow devices to interact with web services, apps, and things. ThingSpeak is open to any type of data from devices and applications. ThingSpeak is a cloud service…things-as-a-service (TaaS)? ThingSpeak is open now.
Open API – connect devices and applications via the Internet to send and receive data
Multiple Data Types – numbers (decimal and comma) and alphanumeric strings
Real-time Data Processing – time scaling, averaging, median, summing, and rounding
Time and Location – localized time, geolocation, latitude, longitude, and elevation
Social Context – augment data with status updates
Charts – instant visualization and embed tools
Apps – built-in apps to connect things to web services
Plugins – sandbox to create mashups, visualizations, and apps
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.

Sounds very much like Pachube?
Yes, sounds exactly like Pachube. But have looked at the Thingspeak API it looks like a much inferior Pachube!
It’s about connecting things – for example there is an app to relay updates to Twitter and any other service from a microcontroller. Our focus is not the data logging of sensors, but to allow one device to send a string to another device using HTTP and a simple API. The logging component is there because there is a service in the middle. I have a Netduino Plus talking to an Arduino Ethernet device and will share the source code for that soon.
Do you have any ideas for something like this?
@Dan Reifsnyder: I agree. Difference is, this is done by ioBridge.
Their stuff is nice, but very much not open source.
