A Building Block for Internet of Toys (IoT)
PineappleCake is a set of add-on board and software for Arduino MKR1000 series for attaching analog sensors. Coupled with MKR1000, PineappleCake can read up-to seven physical sensors and send the values via HTTP on WiFi.
You can also attach triple-axis accelerometer on PineappleCake. The acceleration data can be accessible via wireless HTTP connection.
And one more thing, you can control a couple of LEDs also via wireless HTTP connection.
You can change the IP address of multiple PineappleCakes by using attached rotary switch so that you’ll never need to modify the source code for just changing the addresses.
