  • I was looking for an application to try the Imp out on. I've been interested in Weather and Air Quality sensors. I've wanted to work with the local schools to build and deploy air quality sensors. I've published my Arduino experiments (http://www.howmuchsnow.com/arduino/airquality/grovedust/), but I've been disappointed with the Arduino network stack reliability and cost. Here is my attempt at a low-cost particle sensors using the Imp: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1652961970/wifi-air-particle-sensor

  • If you have an electric imp and the breakout board, then here is a box you can print to house it and the small breadboard: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:63392

  • I was interested in what the $12 Sharp sensor could do. I hooked it up to an Arduino Ethernet to post the data to Pachube Feed 55892. I compared it to a Dylos DC1100 Pro laser particle counter which I also connected to Pachube Feed 55522. Using data taken at the same time, I was able to "calibrate" it to read out in particles per 0.01 cubic feet. I was nicely surprised how well the two sensors agreed. I started putting documentation at: http://www.howmuchsnow.com/arduino/airquality/

  • Anyone know what/where has to be changed in version 2 to use pin 6 instead of pin 10?

No public wish lists :(
