The tutorial we’re sharing today is a follow-on post to the Local Temp with chipKIT and Raspberry Pi post, and is an example of how you can take the previous tutorial to the next level.

So, you’ve collected the temperature data via the chipKIT uC32 and the Basic I/O Shield, you’ve sent the data to the Raspberry Pi, but now what do you do with it? This tutorial will show you how to take that data and publish it to the cloud, the Exosite cloud to be sure!

The tutorial we’re sharing today shows you how to take temperature readings via chipKIT uC32 (or Uno32) and the Basic I/O Shield, and send this information to Raspberry Pi, where the sky is the limit with the things you can do. In this particular example, you can display the temperature readings in the GUI via a Python script.

Find the tutorial and more information on the RedAcacia blog.

As part of Digilent’s Halloween Design Contest, Sam and Tommy posted their “Human Jukebox” entry on Instructables. This thing is pretty neat, using among other things, the chipKIT uC32, a 1sheeld, and conductive paint (way cool!).

Enjoy!
