If you follow us on Twitter (@theappslab) or on Facebook, you’ve seen some of the Summer projects coming together.
If not, here’s a recap of some of the tinkering going on in OAUX Emerging Technologies land.
Mark (@mvilrokx) caught the IoT bug from Noel (@noelportugal), and he’s been busy destroying and rebuilding a Nerf gun, which is a thing. Search for “nerf gun mods” if you don’t believe me.
Mark installed our favorite chip, the ESP8266, to connect the gun to the internets, and he’s been tinkering from there.
Meanwhile, Raymond (@yuhuaxie) has been busy building a smart thermostat.
And finally, completely unrelated to IoT tinkering, earlier this month the Oracle Mexico Development Center (MDC) in Guadalajara celebrated its fifth anniversary. As you know, we have two dudes in that office, Os (@vaini11a) and Luis (@lsgaleana), as well as an extended OAUX family. Congratulations.
