I have produced a set of 6 Node.js sample applications for Intel Edison / Galileo and Intel XDK. Grab them off of git, import into Intel XDK (assuming you have the latest, IOT enabled XDK version) and replace the XXXXX with your API keys.
Intel Edison is a tiny computer for building compelling #inteliot hardware hacks. This is a quick intro on how to pair Edison with Intel XDK over a local network.
Getting Started Tips:
Download Intel XDK IoT Edition. Once you install, register for an account and sign into XDK, you should see the following option available under the “New Projects” templates. Click the template to get started with a new Intel XDK project for IoT applications with Intel Edison.
Assuming you have gotten Edison online we can now proceed to deploy code to XDK.
If you haven’t done so already, download the Bojour Browser, a utility for detecting other devices on your local network.
In your XDK project, click the drop down and see if there is an “Edison” option listed. If not, open the Bojour Browser and find the IP address and port of your Edison. Then select input “Add Manual Connection” and input the Edison IP Address and Port information from the Bonjour Browser (see below)
If you are getting the “Authorization Required(401)” warning from Intel XDK, you will need to perform the following steps:

Just wrote my first LinkedIn article about my thoughts on Intel Edison.
The team at Jigsaw Renaissance rose to the challenge of producing a more robust Hack-E-Bot implementation based on Intel Galileo Gen 2 and spent all night producing a new, ruggedized version which now has sonar for obstacle avoidance!
I will be demonstrating the v2 robot at Intel Developer Forum next week, thanks to Marty + Budi.
My box of 5 Spark Cores and Spark Battery Shield arrived today. These are devices which have come up in conversation enough times with various makers to a point where I decided to buy some and try them out. The value proposition of Spark Core is simple: You can instantly control this thing with your mobile phone in a couple seconds after plugging it in. [Read more…]
