Free Webcast 4/29: Beginning NFC with PhoneGap and Arduino
http://www.oreilly.com/pub/e/3069

Don Coleman, Tom Igoe, and Brian Jepson (authors of Beginning NFC ) will introduce you to Near Field Communication using Android phones, Arduino, and NFC readers for computers and Arduino. Learn how information on NFC tags is stored and retrieved, how to write applications on Arduino and Android to read and write tags, and how to integrate NFC into larger projects. Two demos in this session will feature :

    Reading a tag with an Android PhoneGap application
    Writing to a tag from Arduino

And when both are done, we'll be able to show you how an Android device can read the tag you wrote from Arduino and take an action based on the data you stored.

Arduino Board with Multi-Processor Chip?

Arduino is more than a business, it's a worldwide movement dedicated to education, electronics, programming, making... for everyone. In doing so, Arduino has proven that it's not married to a single chip manufacturer. Mainly ATMEL but now Atheros and TI. Why not design a board for Parallax semiconductors, specifically the upcoming Propeller 2, a multi-processor chip (16 cores) with onboard 13-bit ADC, up to 64! The specs are impressive (subject to change) - chip due later this year hopefully. If you think this is a good idea, please chime in here:

http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?PHPSESSID=gfquktaq8tnf30dnc9fosbu514&topic=234655.0

Propeller-2 Specs:
* 32-bit Multi-Processor (16 Core) Module
* HD 1080p Video
* Programmable in GCC
* 200 Mhz Clock Speed
* 512 KB RAM 
* TBD KB RAM for Program Storage
* 64 I/O Pins
* Up to 64 ADC (13-bit Resolution)
* USART, PWM, I2C, SPI done in Software enabling numerous peripherals beyond traditional hardware approach.

This is an excellent opportunity to educate Maker's in multi-processor devices and the manufacturing process behind microcontrollers! Arguably, Parallax started this Maker movement. Arguably without Parallax, there would not have been Arduino. And without Arduino, Parallax would not have implement C programming. I think an Arduino board with a Propeller-2 chip would make an excellent product. Frankly, I'd prefer this over the Arduino Tre.

"Everywhere you look, it seems, people of all ages are taking things apart and testing new ways of putting them back together. This is Maker Faire."

About this community

A place for the maker community to gather and discuss everything from the nuts and bolts of making to project inspirations and far loftier aspirations.
 
Has anyone bought anything from these guys? I don't see any reviews and was wondering what kind of experience people had.

This weekend I created the YesNoBot - a simple robot that is able to nod and shake its head.
