Project 1: Cool Light

What We’ve Get Here

In this project, we use an NFC module and a Q Touch one to control the RGB LED strip. There are 3 buttons of the Q Touch module. To make NFC module work, NFC tag must be wrote record message in. About how to write tags, please refer to Tips.

The Circuit


Put one of the NFC tags onto the antenna and you’ll see LED shine. There’re three modes – single color loop, flow color and rainbow cycles, reflecting to the three different tags, respectively. Besides, if touch one of the buttons on Q Touch Sensor, the LED strip will show a single color say red, green or blue.

Project 2: Glowing Thermometer

What We’ve Get Here

We utilize a barometer module here to monitor the temperature, air pressure and altitude. The index will be shown on the OLED. To start with, let’s set up a secure temperature between 20℃ and 30℃. When the temperature goes out of the secure range, the vibrator will shake and the OLED will display a warning picture. Now open the demo Glowing Thermometer compile and upload the sketch.

The Circuit


1. Default OLED Display

2.Here’s the high temperature warning display

Project 3: Pedometer

What We’ve Get Here

This project shows how to DIY a pedometer that counts a person’s walking steps. Here we have the expansion board, the Xadow - OLED, the Xadow – 3-Axis Accelerometer and Xadow – Buzzer. The OLED screen will display the counts and the buzzer will beep if you do not move for a long time. Additionally, when connect the Intel Edison board to a Wi-Fi network, you can check the record online.


1. Shake Xadow-3-Axis Accelerometer, you will see the pedometer counts.

2. When the pedometer connects WiFi network, the local IP will display on the OLED screen:

3. On a device connected on the same network, open a web browser, and go to the IP address displayed on the OLED or Serial Monitor, you can see the step counts.
