As mentioned it the demo video and Enchanted Objects Design Challenge - And they all lived happily ever after the Arduino Yún takes a long time to boot. I did notice that there's a bit of a difference between different file systems on the SDA. I also collected together some links in my research which give ideas on speeding up this process.   One tool that might help is BootChart that gathers some stats and presents them as a chart, as with a lot of things on the Arduino Yún t ...
Hi Everyone.   Just a quick reminder that your final blogs are due tomorrow, June 26 at midnight GMT. Remember that the more rich content you include, like videos and images, the better your chances of winning.   We are excited to see all of your builds! You have created some truly amazing, beautiful objects, and we want to thank you all for inspiring all of us at element14 with your creativity.   Thanks for all of your hard work, and good luck to you all!   Sagar ...
This week I completed my project for the Enchanted Objects design challenge. It has been funny even if some external activities (namely work and family :-)) didn't allow me to get a more in-depth view of some aspects. I will now try to assess whether I met the requirements of this challenge   Security The MagicHat does not publish anything on the Internet.

Overview This particular enchanted object is right out of the storybooks. Deep in the forest is a small cottage owned by a timeless couple, Hans and Matilda who are doomed never to meet. When it is wet he goes outside but when it is dry she must leave the house.   The idea was to take an old fashioned "cat gut" based weather house and use the electronic components to bring it up to date. The key features would be servo driven mechanics, LED showing the temperature and the Arduino Yun for g ...
There was a new version of the Arduino IDE, this week was not the best time to download it, so that was left until after the challenge.   Due to the modular nature of the design the boards and components could be tested as they were assembled. The boards were tested with modified versions of the example code that were originally used in the development. Prior to assembly the proto-shield was visually inspected for problems.   Test code and example: https://github.com/Workshopshed/Enc ...
