Push data from an Arduino to Google Docs with PushingBox

It's always great to see more examples that show how easy it is to send data from an Arduino across the Internet without much effort, and this example by Instructables member ezoom404 is just that.

They show us how to capture data (in this example from a temperature sensor) and send it to Google Docs via an Ethernet-enabled Arduino or compatible board and the "PushingBox" cloud-based notification service. Apart from Google Docs you can create notifications for all manner of platforms and devices, allowing your Arduino to alert you directly of a pre-determined situation.

Getting started is easy, with the first step being the project Instructable page. And for more, we're on facebookGoogle+, and twitter - so follow us for news and product updates as well.


When putting together your next Internet-enabled Arduino or AVR project - save time, space and money with the  Freetronics EtherTen . Apart from being fully  Arduino Uno-compatible , it has onboard Ethernet, microSD socket, full USB interface (so you don't need a costly FTDI cable just to upload a sketch!) and supports optional  Power-over-Ethernet .
