      Happy New Year!

      This week has been a very busy one for me. But 2017 starts, and I have some new codes to publish!

      How I start? Ok, I've been working (may be playing) with Android Things using a Raspberry Pi v3, and I've been rewriting some of my libraries!.

      First, I thought, let's try SWIG and wrap the C/C++ codes to use them with Java. But, then I realized, that I needed a wrapper in wrapper, which I think is not possible (I am not an expert with these things, so if I am wrong, please leave a comment, I would appr...

      I wish you a Merry Christmas!!! and to celebrate this evening I've just uploaded a new repository for the Wipy 2.0. Some Christmas lights using the WS2812B!

      Things used in this project

      Hardware components

      Wipy 2.0Wipy 2.0 x 1
      WS2812BWS2812B LED strip x 1



      boot.py: add your ssid, wlan password, and configure the ip address. You need this file if you want to connect the Wipy 2.0 to your router, otherwise you can avoid copying it and the Wipy remains as an wlan access point.

      main.py: you find some options here. The most important option is ledNumber. Set this value correctly.

      Hi everybody,

      I am back again! After almost a-two whole week(s) of code cleaning and updating I've just uploaded two 'new' libraries:

      CC++ RF24: https://goo.gl/3fTmlJ
      RF24Network: https://goo.gl/KONmkU

      These libraries are an extension to the great nrf24 libraries provided by TMRh20 and allow to connect the nRF24L01+ to the following TI-Launchpads:

      In the following days I am updating some example codes for CCS (Code Composer Studio) and EAGLE files.

      Stay tuned!!!

      I am calling this project DIVA (#ProjectDIVA), a...
