The Wireless Inventors Kit for the Raspberry Pi (RasWIK) is an exciting and affordable addition to the Raspberry Pi. RasWIK demonstrates that with our leading edge technology anyone (and we mean anyone) can build wireless sensors and actuators, you do not need huge experience, a degree or even any tools. We show you even how to connect the devices you build to “the Internet of Things” (IoT) service providers such as Xively.
Getting started is just 5 simple steps:
Insert the preconfigured SD card to your Pi
Plug in the Slice of Radio to the GPIO connector
Turn on the Pi
Power the XinoRF development board
Lauch the Python based example application on your Pi
Thats it!........you are now past step one of your journey to wireless nirvana :)
You can build wireless devices in just a matter of minutes. All the code is fully Open Source, you can use, modify and even sell your own products based on this kit.
There are 29 fully documented projects. The 17 hardware projects take you from very basic sensors, actuators and light controls to more complicated ones that include measuring temperature and light levels. The 12 fully completed software projects show you how to do more sophisticated stuff, including posting your measurements on the Internet.
Out of the box all the hardware is configured to start you off without you writing a single line of code. The kit comes complete with an SD card image that has starter software and a fully configured Pi operating system already installed. The devices you make are even interoperable with our off the shelf wireless devices.
RasWIK won an outstanding 5 tux in Linux Format, saw a 4 page spread in Raspberry Pi geek and has had a number of other reviews. In every review, RasWIK comes out to be an excellent way to learn more about your Pi and wireless sensing.
The youngest WIKer we know of is just 8 years old! If he can do it, you can too :)
