Start Emulating an Apple I on Your TV Wirelessly with a $3 ESP8266

https://blog.hackster.io/start-emulating-an-apple-i-on-your-tv-wirelessly-with-a-3-esp8266-80ba56a1e41f Apple’s first product, the Apple I, is now more than 40 years old. The processor was a MOS 6502 running at a mere 1MHz, and it only came with 4KB of memory.  Emulating the OS takes very little power. That last point is where the maker-favorite ESP8266 comes in. The ESP8266 can be purchased for as little

ESP8266 IoT Contest – Simplify the Connected World – Hackster.io

https://www.hackster.io/contests/ESP8266 The Internet of Things (IoT) is a hot topic in today’s tech conversations. Many times, IoT development and prototyping cycles are too long and too expensive due to the time and complexity it takes to build a simple IoT prototype. But the creation of IoT projects doesn’t have to be complex or expensive. myDevices,

https://www.hackster.io/motea-marius/diy-complete-philips-hue-home-automation-dacb12?ref=channel&ref_id=425_published___&offset=0 This project looks like a very interesting home automation IoT project that provides tools for many applications: This project emulates a Philips Hue Bridge that is able to control Hue lights (using original Hue Bridge), IKEA Tradfri lights (usign Tradfri Bridge), Mi-Light bulbs (using MiLight Hub), Neopixel strips (WS2812B and SK6812) and any cheep

Web-Based Universal Remote for Under $4 (Probably) – Hackster.io

https://www.hackster.io/user70641842/web-based-universal-remote-for-under-4-probably-e9e929?ref=explore&ref_id=trending___&offset=4 Don’t buy a universal remote, make one. It’s cheaper, funner, universal-er, kind of, and you get to learn the ESP8266, kind of. You will need the Arduino IDE with whatever OS. Alternatively Linux and some C skills for the official Espressif stuff, but that’s unnecessarily challenging for this application. To get IR control codes

There is no project too big or too small. Want to monitor the temperature in a room? Perfect. Thinking of creating an automated garden? Excellent. Want to use

The State of Boards: Small, Simple Hardware Rules | Make

http://makezine.com/2017/06/27/state-boards-platforms-products-purposes-current-crop-microcontrollers-vies-attention/ Over the last few years, we’ve seen a huge growth in the number and variety of both microcontroller boards and single-board computers.  The modern era, defined by microcontrollers becoming conveniently packaged on boards, began with the Arduino. The “classic” Arduino layout, including the irritating, irregular offset between pins 7 and 8, has become a standard. Similarly,

Mongoose OS Now Part of Hackster Apps – Hackster’s Blog

https://blog.hackster.io/mongoose-os-now-part-of-hackster-apps-e681bc2d12f6 An open source IoT operating system that looks interesting. Mongoose OS is an open source operating system for the IoT. With Mongoose OS, setup is fairly straightforward and takes just few minutes. Prototyping can be done in JavaScript, and you can use real microcontrollers for your projects (such as ESP8266, ESP32 or TI CC3200),
