Arduino DS1621

Arduino DS1621
Jehhaaaa... It is done!

My first Arduino device is born. Thanks to John! He learned me how to develop the driver for it. It is a DS1621 temperature sensor with 2-Wire (I²C) interface bus. And, YES! I have currently 17.5 degrees in my room.

I am impressed! The code will follow ASAP!

Arduino NXT

Arduino2Lego is a project developed at the Politecnico of Milan by a Computer Science Engineering student. It aims to make all Lego NXT peripherals (motors, sensors,...) easily usable from Arduino.

Since i am not lucky with the original LEGO NXT programmable brick because I need the programming environment provided by LEGO. Sure, there are nice implementations of alternative firmwares around the web but none of them are what I want. Sometimes they are using ugly languages like Java and sometimes the code for the firmware is not public available.

Now I have my solution. Move the LEGO NXT brick to your trash and build one by yourself using Arduino based boards.

l2gvpn 0.1 release available...

John, the author of l2gvpn released version 0.1 of l2gvpn some days ago.

Go, take a look! This is a really cool approach of a VPN implementation in just some few lines of code.

Added a LEGO Mindstorms NXT section to this site

I have added a LEGO Mindstorms section to this site aiming on NXT development on the Linux platform. Go to the site here.

I will post Links to interesting projects and code there. If you have some interesting content for that site, please let me know!
