IoT Labs Next Product


#1

Just a little sneak peek of our next product…

1.5" OLED display
Directional Pad with Jog Wheel and Select button
Uses a Gadgeteer Socket ‘S’


#2

@ munderhill - Nice! Could use that to build my own Zune. :wink:


#3

@ devhammer - That would be cool! Then you’ll probably need our follow on product, a mainboard that the UI module plugs into with WiFi and maybe BT and a rechargeable battery.


#4

New mainboard! Sounds interesting. ;D


#5

@ Architect - Jeez, I let the cat out of the bag… :wink:


#6

You’ve been taking lessons from @ Gus, I see. :smiley:


#7

@ munderhill - What else is in the bag? :wink:


#8

I can’t wait to hear more about this!


#9

@ munderhill - looks very interesting. Where can we go to find out more about IOTlabs?


#10

@ hagster - Not much to tell, just doing some fun stuff and sharing with the community. I will eventually get around to creating a website, but I am not there yet.


#11

Sounds similar to Justin. :wink:

OK, in fairness, Justin DOES have a website now. Just not a storefront for his modules.

I’m thinking someone needs to develop a turnkey website solution for mainboard/module devs. :slight_smile:


#12

@ devhammer - There is always Tindie:


#13

Tindie is interesting from a storefront standpoint, but doesn’t answer the website aspect.

Imagine a turnkey solution for blog/website, plus storefront. Probably not terribly practical, at least not as a paid service, but it’d be cool to have, to allow module devs to focus on developing and supporting their hardware and drivers, instead of being webmasters.


#14

It would be great to see more people able to earn a descent crust from netMF.


#15

For the Mountaineer Web sites, we are using Jimdo (http://www.jimdo.com). Jimdo provides website, blog, and in the JimdoBusiness version also storefront. There are some rough edges, but all in all it is fun to use and they provide a reasonable set of basic features across all functions.


#16

This is actually what I always had in mind for

http://gadgeteer.in

but considering how pretty much every major player has decreased their interest in Gadgeteer vs the other way around, I decided not to waste my time. If Microsoft’s new focus revives the interest then I’ll likely start it up again. I believe for Gadgeteer to ever really take off it really needs a vendor independent hub.
