This project was really fun to work on. I hadn't used a BeagleBone Black before, and wish I could have used more if it GPIO features. I did have experience writing Java code for Raspberry Pi so that helped in terms of knowing about embedded Linux.
Another feature I wish I had more time for was a visual element; maybe in the next version.
Java proved to be a powerful tool to use in this project. Java provided access to the network, system commands, and enabled portable code.
Here is a demo of the project in action, inside of my first attempt at its enclosure. I want to call it RadioHead, but that might be trademarked.
