ES8266 / DHT22 - Wi-Fi / Temperature & Humidity server (example mashup)

Here’s a quick (couple hours with my sloppy mistakes) mashup of two Arduino examples - the ES8266 (HUZZAH from Adafruit) WiFi controller and a DHT22 temperature and humidity sensor. This is the start of a bigger project which tells outdoor and indoor temperature along with accurate time (more on that to come), and probably wind speed, etc… more→

Update to using an ATtiny85 in a Similar Way To An Adafruit Trinket - specifically to run the Adafruit Neopixel library

I’m continuing to try and ‘cheap-ify’ my per effect cost for my Halloween decorations. I ran into some issues last night trying to get an Arduino sketch that used the Adafruit Neopixel library and ran on a Trinket to run on a straight ATtiny85. The solution was to select the chip in the Arduino IDE and using an AVR programmer, burn the ‘bootloader’. more→

AVR Dragon and OSX (trying it out again)

I’ve been inspired by my 4yo son to get back into some electronics for a spooky Halloween display we’re planning on setting up this year. Who am I kidding, my son has nothing to do with it. Anyway, I want to make a few cheap, but hopefully terrifying, effects for the yard and inside. more→
