MAKING THINGS TALK
Tom Igoe is one of the prolific actors on the Arduino scene. One of the core of 5 Arduino developers, Tom has amassed a huge volume of knowledge working with a multitude of technologies and a large number of students over the past decade. Making Things Talk is a small section of what he has learned. This book (in color!) covers a wide range: flex sensors, Bluetooth wireless, XBee wireless, USB, networks, IR remote control, RFID, force sensitive resistors, protocols, and of course, lots of LEDs. It’s pretty awesome – and it’s not just how to work with these neat technologies, but how to apply them in innovative projects. This is a great book to build upon a basic knowledge of Arduino. Tom does a great way of describing and teaching on a very easy to understand level, while getting complex concepts across.
