Devices will favorite, tag, like, follow, friend and un-friend

Pt 443

We’re working on our product line up for 2012 and it’s going to be filled with great stuff all of you are going to do amazing things with. One of the things we’re thinking about is how many of the products/projects like the Arduino are getting more networked, and therefore the sensors attached are getting more networked.

One of the earliest projects we did to show this was through a real shipping product was the Tweet-a-watt.

Very soon, with makers/hackers leading the way, devices will favorite, tag, like, follow, friend and un-friend. People like to do this, but smart connected devices will like to do this even more. What it will mean for artists, designers and engineers who creatively use these technologies?

Perhaps one day your Tweeting power meter will automatically “friend” the other ones you install in your home, and if you’re publicly sharing the data they’ll follow others in your area. We believe in open-source and open-source hardware, so you’re always able to know what is being shared, stored and how the device works. We think this is important.

We hope to have some fun examples soon, we’ll be showing some cool stuff on some upcoming ASK AN ENGINEER shows about all this, stay tuned.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
