A few weeks ago we wrote about the brand-new Arduino-compatible Internet-of-Things platform - XOBXOB, and now John over at tronixstuff has documented how simple it is to use and demonstrated the examples provided. With an Ethernet-enabled Arduino board such as our EtherTen you can very easily control digital outputs, external devices such as LED display drivers, and send serial data to the EtherTen via any web-equipped device.
With the use of the included Arduino library, getting started is very quick and you can be controlling things remotely in less than five minutes. At the moment the service is still in alpha stage, but as demonstrated it shows great promise and we look forward to seeing it evolve. Click here to visit the demonstration, and here for the XOBXOB website. And for more, we're on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.
Looking to get started with XOBXOB with the Arduino platform? Then 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.
