We have pre-announced the Objective-C library a few weeks ago, it is now available on the programming libraries download page. From now on, you can create Mac OS X Cocoa applications that will natively communicate with Yoctopuce modules (directly using USB, or via TCP).
Then we might be able to help you: a new sensor is about to be available on the shop. The Yocto-Light device is an ambient light sensor. With a sensitivity range extending from 3 to 65000 lux, it will let you to make many interesting projects such as light barrier, day/night detection, shadow detection etc...
Let's be honest, last week post about USB Christmas tree was a bit lame. It was fun to blink all these color leds, but that was a lot of Yocto-Color devices to connect for a result very similar to a $10 ornament you would buy from the nearest hardware store. So we decided to improve the concept.
This week, we will present something that will be published shortly: the high-level API for Objective-C. The most insightful readers may have already picked up some hints about it. For now, this is only a Mac OS X version, but IOS support will follow after, don't worry.
Do you remember Joséphine, our USB coffee machine? We noticed it was almost always doing an automatic shutdown right when we wanted a coffee. So we have decided to make an upgrade: in addition to remote controlling the coffee function, we will be able to remotely power it on or off, and to choose between a large and a small coffee. All this will be done with forty lines of code, including the user interface.
