Configure Arduino IDE for ESP8266 NodeMCU and LED Blink Example

When the power of ESP and simplicity of Arduino comes together we can create magic. Lets see how we can do this.

The port for ESP8266 is created by ESP Community, which we can imagine require tremendous amount of work. Thank you guys.

Video Tutorial 





They have posted a link to get the configuration for Arduino here http://arduino.esp8266.com/stable/package_esp8266com_index.json

Copy the link  http://arduino.esp8266.com/versions/2.5.0-beta1/package_esp8266com_index.jsonIn the Arduino IDE open preferences find input field Additional Board Manager URLs and paste the link there and click OK to close the window.

Open Board Manager from Tools -> Board -> Board Manager

Search for esp8266 -> Install the one by ESP community

Done, Now you can create your first project using ESP8622

RuuviTag | Open-Source Bluetooth Sensor Beacon with 1 Km Range

Ruuvi Innovations, a startup out of Finland, has successfully crowdfunded a fully opensourced Bluetooth Smart (Bluetooth 5 ready) sensor beacon. The RuuviTag is a sensor beacon with a 1 kilometer open air range and offers unlimited possibilities for makers, developers, IoT companies and educational institutions. The company has decided to defy the status quo by releasing all of their sources to the public.
The key differentiators that set RuuviTag apart from other Beacons are:
Easy, standalone use: the devices can be used without any preinstalled apps.Eddystone certified: RuuviTag is checked for full Eddystone support by Google engineers.Arduino compatible: the software is compatible with Arduino's recently announced IoT platform, Arduino Primo.Multiple Sensors: to measure temperature, relative humidity, air pressure, altitude and acceleration.Bluetooth 5 ready: the new Bluetooth release quadruples range, doubles speed, increases data broadcasting capacity by 800% and bri…

Raspberry Pi Zero: the $5 computer

Raspberry Pi Zero: the $5 computer Of all the things we do at Raspberry Pi, driving down the cost of computer hardware remains one of the most important. Even in the developed world, a programmable computer is a luxury item for a lot of people, and every extra dollar that we ask someone to spend decreases the chance that they’ll choose to get involved.
The original Raspberry Pi Model B and its successors put a programmable computer within reach of anyone with $20-35 to spend. Since 2012, millions of people have used a Raspberry Pi to get their first experience of programming, but we still meet people for whom cost remains a barrier to entry. At the start of this year, we began work on an even cheaper Raspberry Pi to help these people take the plunge.






Today, I’m pleased to be able to announce the immediate availability of Raspberry Pi Zero, made in Wales and priced at just $5. Zero is a full-fledged member of the Raspberry Pi family, featuring:
A Broadcom BCM2835 appl…

Case Mod: Rockcrawler X99 By ACE Finland

Alexander Hede is a famous modder from Vörå (a small town west of Finland).  He is a mechanical engineer working for an abrasive manufacturer, where he spends his days developing power tools.  Online he is known as ACE Finland.  From an early age he has been interested in computers, and completed his first computer mod in 2012 using a water-cooled Corsair 600T.  Since then he has been prolific in creating high-quality mods such as this.


 Hardware for the mod: - X99 Sabranco motherboard
- Intel I7 5960X
- Titan black

CES 2015: Intel unveils Curie, new module for compact wearables

Intel has showcased some futuristic technologies at the ongoing CES 2015 event. Intel's future seems to be greatly focused on wearables as it unveiled Curie module, a low-powered hardware product that can be used in a range of wearables including rings, bands and glasses. Intel's Curie Module is based on an updated version of its Quark Chip, called the Quark SE. The chip comes with features such as 32-bit microcontroller with 384 kB of flash memory and 80 kB SRAM, Bluetooth LE, low-power sensor hub, six-axis combination accelerometer and gyroscope. It runs Viper, an open source software that can capture information via activity recognition and built-in features.
The new module is supposed to help speed up development in the wearable segment. It aims to help developers come up with more compact wearable hardware. Apart from the industry, the module is also important for Intel.
