The electronics maker movement has led a massive shift in how people are re-engineering the world around them through rapid hardware prototyping. With the rise of inexpensive, wifi and bluetooth low energy enabled electronics, this hardware revolution is internet and mobile controlled, all through simple bridges to build the electronics intelligence in familiar web languages.
In this session, we will play with Arduino microcontrollers and JavaScript to take a first dive into the world of internet controlled electronics, exploring:
- Setting up an Arduino to be controlled through web APIs
- Using JavaScript language bridges on the Arduino
- The future of web controlled hardware prototyping

  • Internet Controller Hardware – Arduino Yun, etc.Extending to other languages, Tessel = JavaScript, Node.js through Johnny 5
  • Arduino Yun
  • Yun feature sets (temboo / wifi / etc)Based on the Leonardo boardPython 2.7 included with OpenWRT Linux distribution called Linino on the board
  • Program an arduino without writing any code.Sketch Builder (https://temboo.com/library/Library/devices/)
  • Picking the right version of the arduino softwarehttp://arduino.cc/en/main/software
  • Picking the right version of the arduino softwarehttp://arduino.cc/en/main/software
  • Picking the right version of the arduino softwarehttp://arduino.cc/en/main/software
  • The modularity and extensibility of the Devices sets them apart from just usingThe hardware components of a phone, etc
  • Alternate framework: Noduino (http://semu.github.io/noduino/) – accessing arduino from web applications (HTML5 / JS / Node)
  • How Johnny 5 works – standard firmata uploaded to the microcontroller, then Node.js script controlled.
  • http://arduino.cc/en/reference/firmata
  • Upload the firmata program to the board
  • Crap that was hard…
  • servo.min(); //set to min degrees (default 0)servo.max(); //set to max degrees (default 180)servo.center(); //center servo to 90 degrees
  • Alternate framework: Noduino (http://semu.github.io/noduino/) – accessing arduino from web applications (HTML5 / JS / Node)Download NoduinoUploadDuino to board (the communications bridge)
