This is a little side track, it’s something I would love to try but I’m not sure when or if it will happen. It’s the “internet of things”, connecting to things, programming robots and so on, it’s DotNetRocks episode 902, NodeBots and RobotsConf with Chris Williams.
This podcast felt a little more like entertainment than education. The guys get really passionate when discussing all the cool things you can do with the tiny computers and components available and there’s a lot of talk about copters.
When it comes to tinkering with hardware like this I’m totally clueless. I would like to do things like this, soldering, building robots or whatever but for now I’ll spend my time on coding applications. I do have a Raspberry PI waiting to have all kind of cool stuff done to it some day.
