Re: More Arduino
Hi Lee--I'm just working virtually right now, sorry.  But there seems to be a lot going on in DIY systems with microprocessors, which seems tailor made for LED projects.

Re: http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=new-lamps-may-help-astronauts-get-more-sleep
Very interesting. And a new twist on old-fashioned light bulb jokes! Seriously (well, mostly), this will add some perspective to the blog I'm in the middle of writing about Philipps' developers program for its Hue lighting system that was recently covered in MIT Tech Review www.technologyreview.com/view/512396/an-app-store-for-home-lighting/ . I was tempteed to dismiss it as a marketing gimmick, but this and anotheer thing I'll discuss made me think twice.

"How many NASA engineers does it take to change a light bulb?" That is the great first line in this article about LED applications and their benefits for the International Space Station.  The details of the article tell about research to improve the lighting on ISS and improve life on-board.  So, what?  Improved ISS life means improved life for your grand-kids who will be traveling the Solar System and the Galaxy.

Improved sleep, more alert astronauts, and other enhancements are possible with the adjustable 3-color LED light configuration they are researching.  Like many other NASA research subjects, the practical, on-earth applications can be many.  Better office lighting, efficient "Nap rooms" for workers that really help production, kid's bedroom lighting; it boggles the mind!

Re: More Arduino
Here is the link to the OSHW panel discussion at DESIGN West featuring some of the industry's luminaries:

PLUS, we have FREE hands-on training sessions all week on various OSHW boards, from Raspberry Pi to Arduino to Beaglebone.

And OMG, did I tell you about the "Program your own propeller beanie" session as part of the world's first and biggest mesh network for beanies! But pssst, keep it between us.

Re: More Arduino
Karen - I forgot to ask can you post a link to Design Wes for the readers? And another tothe Arduino session would be great.

I'll be doing a blog on that session and the possibilities it holds for the LED community some time soon.

Count me in!

And if I get it done in time, I will bring my Arduino-powered top hat - my answer to  Max's smart propeller beanie.

Re: More Arduino
Glad to hear you are slso getting involved w/Arduino - it's changing how people design and manufacture stuff in many industries - and it's unleashed the imagination of a genration of DIY-ers. 

 

What sorts of projects are you thiinking of  working on? Will you be able to post someof the highlights as a guest blog?

I've had a lot of fun learning how to use the boards and the dev environment. I'm still not a pro but am just about ready to tackle a small project or two. I've also played with Arduino-compatible  boards with 32-bit processors that are great for apps where a little mor e "oomph" is needed than the venerable 8-bit AVR MCU can supply. Digi-Key is a good source for basic Ardiuno components but there are also some other interresting sources I'v located. If I can be of any help, please contact me. 

And please keep us all informed about any projects you are working on!

Re: More Arduino
You may be interested in attending a panel discussion at DESIGN West this year on April 23, on OSHW in San Jose:  

Session description: Are you interested in learning more about open source hardware, but skeptical that it has a place in the professional engineering world? The reality is that more and more engineers are discovering that OSHW can be an essential tool for quick prototyping, characterizing and testing peripherals, and beyond. Hear from some of the OSHW movement's leading personalities on where their products are being applied in the professional design world today and where it's all heading.

Sparkfun, Arduino, Raspberry Pi developers and engineers will be speaking.

Find out details here: http://www.ubmdesign.com/sanjose/schedule-builder/session-id/179

Hope to see you there!  Karen Field, Content Director, DESIGN West

Hi Lee--funny coincidence, I was just recently researching the Arduino family as they are an interesting way to demo or prototype some M2M applications.  Adding a GSM board to the family just increases the fun!!  

FYI, if anyone wants some of the other boards or dev kits in a hurry, DigiKey among others stocks them:

Arduino from DigiKey

P.S.  What were they thinking to call these things shields?
