Web to Arduino messaging with Morse Code

 Prolific technology book author Simon Monk has created an interesting method of one-way communication over the Internet. Using our Freetronics EtherTen as the base, Simon has programmed a small web server which accepts a short message from the user, then blinks it out in Morse Code using a bright LED on the EtherTen side of things.

This is really neat, and could be used as a fine one-way paging system using Internet-connected devices. For more information and to get started, check out Simon's blog here. And we're on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.

Again - the Freetonics EtherTen can be found in another Arduino-Internet application: 

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. For more information and to order - click here!
