“Um… no. None of those things are valid options in Clue.”
In the last few months, I’ve had the joy of playing around with the Intel Galileo board for sensor-based Internet of Things projects. First, I installed Windows onto an SD card and popped it into the Galileo board.
Then I started working with sensors. I found the best way to get started with sensors was to buy a whole bunch of them in a kit. I settled on the Grove Starter Kit because
- I saw it at the Intel Developer Forum 2014 conference and it looked awesome
- It was verified as compatible by the Windows IoT team
So I started working with the Grove sensors as part of my Windows IoT exploration. That led to this most recent publication… a set of projects for all of the sensors in the Grove starter kit. I also detail what sensors are required for each project and what the projects are meant to do at the IdentityMine blog.
I need more!
I’m still digging into the code, but I found this project from Microsoft MVP Catalin Gheorghiu using temperature sensor sent to a server to execute commands to turn a fan on and off.
Also of interest is this rather ambitious home automation project by Dan Thyer “controlling 30 different things with 3 types of microcontrollers with nearly 150 commands”. It uses (among other things) the Kinect and Netduino. So while it’s not a Galileo project, it is a cool source of inspiration.
