ARM mbed Ethernet Starter Kit

My review of the ARM mbed Ethernet Starter kit is now live! An awesome kit, with everything needed to get up and running with mbed quickly. The shield alone has most of the things you need to learn about digital I/O, analogue, LCD screens and even has a slot for adding XBee cards.

Bluetooth in Action 1 – Guided Tour of the Bluetooth Module

A while ago, Silicon Labs sent me some awesome Blue Gecko wireless modules. I’m looking forward to having a lot of fun with these, and I’ve created a new video series to go with them. I’ll be talking about programming them, and I’ll try to come up with some useful example programs and applications. However, before we get started, let’s look at what the kit contains.

There was a knock on the door, and a delivery guy came with a fairly large box. Yay! I’ve been expecting this one. So I opened it up, and had a look.

Time to have a closer look at their wireless kits, expect a few reviews and YouTube videos.
