Some time ago, we found a post where someone had built a device showing his schedule on his office door using Google Calendar. We liked the idea and, this week, we are going to show you how to display your appointments of the day on your fridge door using a Yocto-MaxiDisplay and a YoctoHub-Wireless-SR.
When you simply want to display a physical measure with a Yoctopuce module, there are several solutions: You can write your own program to display the sensor data, or use the embedded data logger with our command line API to export the data. But there is an even simpler solution: configuring a YoctoHub to post the values in the cloud. We natively support Xively and Emoncms, and this week we explain how to configure a YoctoHub to use these services.
Somewhere in the middle of rural Germany, there is an old mansion with a front clock, which used to chime the hours once upon a time. It's an old and tired mechanical clock, which was probably never very accurate and which now sometimes stops. As it's not possible to set it to time manually (it doesn't have a free wheel system), it was condemned to a standstill. Until last week, when, with the help of a few Yoctopuce modules, we built a pacemaker for it...
Not long ago, we came across this post explaining how to launch a model rocket from a smartphone by using a Raspberry Pi, a WiFi dongle, a relay board, and a pocket WiFi router. We wondered if we could make it simpler by using Yoctopuce modules. Moreover, we couldn't pass a reason to play with model rockets :-)
An automated measure of weight comes in useful for many automation applications: not only for getting the weight, but also for detecting the presence of an object or animal, or even for counting items. So we wanted to experiment with it for quite some time already. But we were missing a key piece of the puzzle until very recently, that is, until the arrival of the Yocto-milliVolt-Rx.
