So i thought this was an early april fools joke when i saw the two talks for this evening. A nodejs meetup dedicated to home craft beer brewing but the agenda is the agenda and i shit you not. I suspect these guys are going to put my little home brew setup to shame.
2nd talk : @juliancheal kicks off a talk on Cylon.js which is robotics api written in node js. There may be issues with his website at juliancheal.co.uk/. Julian had a bag full of devices which had various flashing lights which could be turned on and off via cylon. A nat demo showing how the code which runs on the devices can also be run in a browser.
Internet of Things in the Pub We are introduced to the smart breathalyzer which is a mobile app plugin for measuring how many drinks you’ve had. You’ve identified your drunk so the next logical step is to call a drone what will deliver you another beer. Neat demo of a drone attempting to deliver a can of beer. I’ll hold off until the drone cab pull a pint of guinness and deliver that before i’ll sack all the bar men.
Spark devices are mentioned and its cloud API. The next demo ‘partybus’ involves a dance mat sending commands to the drone as our human dances to gangnan style, the drone let on it was too cool to dance.
