I wanted to build a project with the ESP8266. I've purchased a few in various form factors. They were a little annoying to program because of the extra circuitry, etc. I found the NodeMCU, which is basically a dev board for this chip, with built-in USB and accessible GPIO headers.   I also happened to purchase a really cool LEGO train, so why not combine the two?!    I bring you a WiFI controlled LEGO train!   http://www.internetoflego.com/lego-train-automation-wifi-cont ...
I've just finished a new project where I combined the Transport for London API schedule data and an Arduino controlled LEGO train track switch. Automation is fun!   It was really an exercise in using IoT technology, where Node-RED is my master controller. I use a Raspberry Pi for the local brain and control the OLED board and track servo with Arduinos. The schedule data is handled via MQTT and the remote control is via PubNub.   http://www.internetoflego.com/train-scheduled-automati ...
I've been building a smart IoT city crafted out of LEGO, Arduino, Raspberry Pi and random stuff along the way. A good friend of mine, who runs a law firm and teaches at Indiana University, has contributed to my IoT blog with some helpful principals for ensuring security, privacy and legality are integral to every IoT solution.     Complete Article Here   http://www.internetoflego.com/iot-security-and-privacy-overview/   Please share your thoughts and experiences!
