Oh, some time ago, I had a great year working on hardware and doing Internet of Things projects. Nowadays, I’m mostly working in native iOS development! But here’s a stroll down memory lane, and who knows, maybe I’ll have some time to do another IoT project on the side someday. 😉
Since we did so well at the Intel Roadshow Denver hackathon, my team and I decided to give it a shot and compete in the 2016 China-US Young Maker Competition. We were selected as one of the top 10 US semifinalists, and competed in China in the final round of competition, where we placed 11th out of 64 teams overall.
Here’s the blog post on how we did in the final round in China, along with a description of our project improvements:
Here’s a video of our original online submission:

Controlling LED Lights with a Website and Mobile App
I wrote a series of articles on how to build an IoT system to control LED lights on an Intel Edison board using a website and an iOS mobile app. The articles are no longer on the BeMyApp website, so the following are the rough drafts of the tutorials prior to publication.

Here’s an instructable for how to set up a stepper motor with the Intel Edison board:
