Today I had the chance to play with these toys. Believe me it is amazing! The code is even more amazing. It is like the {FEZ squared).
The team will post everything about these projects and future projects on http://www.netmf.com/gadgeteer/


#9

If you square fast and easy does it go back to being freakin’ easy?


#10

It is freakn’ easy.lol


#11

When is the SDK going to be available? Sept 30th?

Or at least the documentation…


#12

I think this question should be answer by .Net Gadgeteer team. But I believe they are working on finalizing the .NET Gadgeteer website and I suppose they ill have some more information over there.

The code for taking a picture and presenting is it is literally like this:

button = new button(socket no);
camera = new camera(socket no);
display = new display(sockets);

Program()
{
 button.pressed += ....evenhandler(X);
 camera.imagecaptured +=  ...eventhadnler(y);
}

x()
{
camera.TakePicture();
}

Y(picture)
{
display.Show(picture,x,y);
}

You don;t need to worry about threads or exceptions. It is so simple

If I point out the extra button event registration at http://www.netmf.com/gadgeteer/images/VisualStudio.png (edit: from http://www.netmf.com/gadgeteer/about.html) will I get a few bonus points? Or will I get some deducted for being too OCD?

Either way, the camera code would be much more cool there…


#14

It is even easier, here is some code example. This is everything you need ot take a picture when a button is pressed and display the picture on the display.


using System;
using Microsoft.SPOT;
using Microsoft.SPOT.Presentation;
using Microsoft.SPOT.Presentation.Controls;
using Microsoft.SPOT.Presentation.Media;

using GT = Gadgeteer;
using GTM = Gadgeteer.Modules;
using Gadgeteer.Modules.GHIElectronics;

namespace GadgeteerApp1
{
    public partial class Program
    {
        // This template uses the GHI Electronics Spider mainboard.

        // Define and initialize GTM.Modules here, specifying their socket numbers.
        // e.g. GTM.GHIElectronics.Button button = new Button(4);
        GTM.GHIElectronics.Button button = new Button(8);
        GTM.GHIElectronics.Camera camera = new Camera(3);
        GTM.GHIElectronics.Display_T35 display = new Display_T35(12, 13, 14);


        void ProgramStarted()
        {
            // Initialize event handlers here.
            // e.g. button.ButtonPressed += new Button.ButtonEventHandler(button_ButtonPressed);
            button.ButtonPressed += new Button.ButtonEventHandler(button_ButtonPressed);
            camera.PictureCaptured += new Camera.PictureCapturedEventHandler(camera_PictureCaptured);
            // Do one-time tasks here
            Debug.Print("Program Started");
        }

        void camera_PictureCaptured(Camera sender, GT.Picture picture)
        {
            display.SimpleGraphics.DisplayImage(picture, 0, 0);

            }

        void button_ButtonPressed(Button sender, Button.ButtonState state)
        {
            camera.TakePicture();
        }
    }
}

Awesome!!!


#16

Another exciting video I updated original ones as well (audio was fixed)


#17

The balloon airbag rocks!


#18

I spy with my little eye a spider in that video. Rock on guys! Can not freakin’ wait until I have one. Start shipping already! :smiley:


#19

Did you notice GHI’s old Embedded Master in the car? This is the old design, before spider which still use GHI’s modules. Since then, we have been providing a lot of feedback to bring the spider out of its cave.


#20

Can you carry/sell those enclosures? I would be cool to have with the kit.
