Here we go with a few more links which tickled my ESP8266 fancy. Enjoy!
- Peter Jennings has tons of interesting stuff on his site (not just ESP8266’s and not just electronics). Peter’s ESP8266 projects page includes a very simple and very cheap take on the WiFi connected button. Use it for whatever you can dream up.
- CNXSoftware has an interesting write-up on Seeed Studio’s ESP8266 “Wio Link” starter kit, which could be interesting if you’re new to the ESP, or if you’re looking for a techie birthday present for a budding young Maker.
- Tommi built a nice, ‘net-connected mood light for Julia, using a simple box which was hand-cut from a polystyrene sheet, some WS2812’s and, of course, an ESP8266.
- Another one from CNXSoftware which may interest the die-hard Arduino/ESP fans; a new “super Arduino” with two on-board ARM Cortex processors and an on-board ESP8266 to provide WiFi.
This final link needs a couple of warnings …the first is that it is not ESP8266 specific, but it has a metric ton of great information for those of us who want to use an RTC with the ESP8266 in data-logging applications; the second is that you are going to lose a lot of time once you start reading …this whole blog is just chock-full of interesting stuff. Edward Mallon shows us how to implement an RTC (and temperature sensing) on his “Cave Pearl” underwater sensors. A fascinating read.
