NEW PRODUCT – Beginning NFC with Arduino, Android, and PhoneGap
NEW PRODUCT – Beginning NFC with Arduino, Android, and PhoneGap – Jump into the world of Near Field Communications (NFC), the fast-growing technology that lets devices in close proximity exchange data, using radio signals. With lots of examples, sample code, exercises, and step-by-step projects, this hands-on guide shows you how to build NFC applications for Android, the Arduino microcontroller, and embedded Linux devices.
Dig into NFC’s architecture, and learn how it’s related to RFID
Write sample apps for Android with PhoneGap and its NFC plugin
Dive into NDEF: examine existing tag-writer apps and build your own
Listen for and filter NDEF messages, using PhoneGap event listeners
Build a full Android app to control lights and music in your home
Create a hotel registration app with Arduino, from check-in to door lock
Write peer-to-peer NFC messages between two Android devices
Explore embedded Linux applications, using examples on Raspberry Pi and BeagleBone
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.
