We'll be doing all things Edison, phant.io and data-logging at TEI in January!
We're excited to announce that we'll be teaching a workshop on portable, low-energy data-logging projects with the Intel Edison and phant.io at the TEI (Tangible, Embedded and Embodied Interactions) Conference in January!
We will be hosting a half-day workshop on Friday, January 16, showing attendees a new toolchain for embedded devices that allows for the development of powerful and portable applications for the “Internet of Things,” networked wearables, and many other types of tangible and embodied interfaces. Using the Intel Edison, a 1.5 x 1.0 inch system on a chip, with integrated WiFi, Bluetooth Low Energy, memory, and storage, in combination with with Phant, an open-source data-logging tool based on node.js, we will walk participants through setting up and talking to their own portable, low-energy data-logging system. You can learn more about our workshop here.
TEI, hosted at Stanford University January 15-19, is an awesome conference for anyone interested in interaction research and the ways computing can bridge atoms and bits into cohesive interacting systems. The conference addresses issues of human-computer interaction, design, interactive art, user experience, tools and technologies. The intimate size of this single-track conference provides a unique forum for exchanging ideas and presenting innovative work through talks, interactive exhibits, demos, hands-on studios, posters, art installations and performances. If you'd like to attend the conference or our workshop, you can sign up for TEI here. We hope to see you there!
Interested in trying your hand at datalogging with the Edison, but can't make it to the conference? Not to worry! Here's a wishlist of the supplies we'll be using in our workshop, so you can pick up your own set:
And here are a few tutorials you may find useful when you're getting started with your IoT project!
Already made a cool IoT project? We'd love to hear about it, and we look forward to meeting some of you in California in January!
