Freetronics Eleven Review and ThingSpeak Project

 The team at Thingspeak have been experimenting with the Freetronics Eleven and Ethernet shield, and also published a great tutorial that interfaces an IObridge web gateway module with our gear to create a device that parses Google weather and tells the user if the weather is bad enough to wear a jacket. The Arduino sketch is very simple due to the thingspeak API, and it is available for download. A simple tutorial, however a great starting point.

For more information about this project, click here. And we're on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.

Since publishing their article, you can now save space and money by using the Freetronics EtherTen

Apart from being fully Arduino Uno-compatible, it has onboard Ethernet, microSD socket, full USB connection (no pesky FTDI cables needed) and supports optional Power-over-Ethernet.
