Featured Adafruit Google+ Community Project
(Note: Google+ login required.)
We featured Jacob’s awesome router beam project this week on the blog:
Arduino Ethernet project to visibly show traffic levels on a DD-WRT based router using NeoPixels. Uses a strip of 16 NeoPixels to visually display how much traffic is being downloaded or uploaded through the WAN connection of the router. Pixel colors cycle for visual effect. (read more)
Featured Community Project from the Adafruit Blog
I’m testing my setup which is currently on top of my washing machine. A photo resistor is on top of an LED of the washer. When the wash cycle is complete (these lights turn off), my board should know it and use instapush to send a notification to my phone/watch.
My washer and dryer are in the basement and not very loud, so sometimes we miss it and clothes sit. The time estimate for when the washer will be done is also WAY off (Miss Cleo would have better predictions). So this $4 board and a few cents in parts will make a nice and cheap system.(read more)
