Much respect to all inventors of #QUALCOMM #WhyWait Invent-off!

WhyWait - Contestants

The last episode of the invent-off is available to view!

Regardless of the results, I feel privileged to have had an opportunity to work with all of those incredibly talented and passionate inventors. The competition was really fun and I finally got to dip my toes into IOT/IOE.

As promised, I created a video tutorial on┬ápreparing your own Arduino Yun’s to run AllJoynJS and I plan on creating more content for other aspiring inventors to build amazing things.

Success!! Ok and some failures with AllJoynJS #WhyWait #QuallComm #AllJoyn

The third episode of the hackathon has been published. As the deadline of the contest is looming, I’m definitely creating synthetic stress upon myself. There are awesome advantages to using AllJoyn in our project, but also a few problems created by friction of complexity. Regardless, we’ll push through!

I know the episodes are short, but I hope you guys enjoy them!

In the meantime, I wanted to share this post with those who run into the nefarious message while working with AllJoynJS, the Arduino Yun and any input output pins. If you see the following message

ALERT: Error: Failed to configure digital output pin: 022
ajs_io.c:211
light_00409bf0_0002 light strict preventsyield
global .js:10 preventsyield

It’s possible that you just need to run the following script

/usr/bin/lininoio start

To get things going again.

The comprehensive setup will come real soon, I promise! In the meantime, enjoy!

Shocking surprise in the 2nd Episode of the #WhyWait #Qualcomm challenge!

Episode two has been released and this “voted” component thing truly is a shocker! I’m already losing sleep without any additional features, but I suppose you play with the hand that you are dealt with.

More things to read up on and in the end, that means more content to create tutorials for!

Enjoy all!

Selected to be part of the #Qualcomm #WhyWait Hackathon!

WhyWait Medium

Recently I was selected to be a contestant of a hackathon sponsored by Qualcomm to build basically any green fielded idea pairing an Arduino Yun and an Android phone. The first episode will be aired online in the next week or so. Please support me by spreading the word, to any nerd!

I’m super excited for this opportunity to play mad scientist with some IOT/IOE devices and hope we win!

Following the series, I plan on making various tutorials on how we accomplished what we did and frameworks involved from the coding side. I’ll try to do my best to explain the fabrication side, but that’s what I’m leaning on my team mates for!
