New Example Project (and new Reward!)

Posted by Gordon Williams (Creator)

Andy asked if he could make a bluetooth phone-controlled Robot, so we thought we'd give it a go. We even managed to make it voice-controlled, without having to write any software for the phone!

There are more details here: www.espruino.com/Project+7

We've also just added a new reward - the Low Power Wireless Kit. It's got two Espruinos, and two of the amazing NRF24L01+ wireless transceivers. 

These use virtually no power when in standby and work from up to around 60m away, so you can leave one Espruino inside and have one battery-powered Espruino outside transmitting data back to you every minute! You could even buy another wireless module, connect that to a Raspberry Pi, and then control your two Espruino boards wirelessly from the internet!

New Example Project - Digital Dice

Posted by Gordon Williams (Creator)

We've just made a new example project, showing how to make a Digital Dice, from start to finish. It's on our website, and Instructables:

It's perfect for the lights you get either in the Light Pack or Starter kit reward levels!

This is the kind of thing we'll be producing more of in the next few weeks, so that when you get your Espruino board, you'll have lots of ways to get started.

Like it? Want more? Tell your friends and get them to support Espruino as well!

What kind of Projects would you like us to do? If you've got any ideas for projects that could be done in a few hours with Espruino and without specialist tools, let us know in the comments!

First few hours

Posted by Gordon Williams (Creator)

Hi everyone,

Thanks so much for all your support so far - we've been blown away by how many people have backed us, and all your amazing comments, e-mails and tweets.

We've only been going for 7 hours and already we're 15% funded!

Please continue to tell your friends about us, follow us on twitter, and keep checking back here and on our website as we'll be posting more updates and Espruino projects over the coming weeks!

Gordon & Marianne
