Exploring IoT Concepts with a cloudBit: Page 3 of 3

There are variety of WiFi-based chipsets that embedded developers and product designers use in their IoT designs.

UI pushbutton will be able to turn the coffee pot on and off. Beside controlling a coffee pot, small AC home electrical appliances like portable house fans, radios, and TVs can also be operated with this IoT-based controller.

I hope the cloudBit features discussed and illustrated with the coffee pot controller can be realized as an alternative prototyping tool for developing new IoT appliances. Additional information about the coffee pot controller project can be obtained from the Day 4 of the Prototyping Home Automation Concepts Design News CEC webinar course. Also, pricing of littleBits cloudBit, electronics modules, projects, and accessory kits may be found on the littleBits website.
