Make: Getting Started with Intel Edison - PDF
Meet the Intel Edison, a $50 computer as powerful as a Windows 8 tablet.
No bigger than a postage stamp and priced at just $50, the tiny but mighty Intel Edison is comparable in power to an entry-level Windows 8 tablet. Makers love it for its versatility as a communications device, for its application with wearable technology, and for its ability to connect with the world.
Running the Linux OS and Arduino-compatible, the Edison is Internet of Things-ready and wants to be the brains of your next project!
Written by an Intel research scientist, this book introduces the Edison, explains its many possibilities, and lays out the foundation for a beginning Maker to start using it immediately.
• Make your Edison see and hear
• Create your own MP3 player
• Build a speech recognition device
