Disclaimer: I received this book for free through the O’Reilly Blogger program. is a very short “book” on RFID (Radio Frequency Identification), a way to tag and identify objects over varying ranges, and how to use Arduino to create a few interesting RFID projects.
The book assumes that you have some experience with Arduino and micro-controllers (i.e., do you know what a breadboard, jumper wires, and circuits are? We start with a very brief introduction to RFID, follow up with two introductory technical tutorials on Arduino, and end with a fairly simple home automation project: Between my officemate and me, we have dozens of devices drawing power in our office: two laptops, two monitors, four or five lamps, a few hard drives, a soldering iron, Ethernet hubs, speakers, and so forth.
Here are some of the notes I took while reading the book: When you run an Xcode project from a standard (i.e., non-admin) user, you might be asked to enter credentials of a user in the “Developer Tools group.” You can fix this by adding the (current) user to the group: When you purchase something from the Mac App Store, you’ll see a little icon in your dock, but that doesn’t show you the percentage of progress.
The icon is small, and the progress bar seems to remain blank for a long time for bigger downloads.
I read it, and loved it (along with some 1,700 other people). For the record: Said boyfriend initially freaked out when she told him she was kinky, but is now trying hard to get on board.
This is a little long, and, in Brian’s words, “doesn’t come close to covering everything,” so he’s really hoping for your ideas in the comments so he can edit it and make it even better. You come home one ordinary afternoon, and there is your girlfriend looking nervous. Oh god, this is why women shouldn’t be allowed to read or use the internet.
The book is only 28 pages, so it’s more of a long tutorial than a book, but it still acts as a good introduction to RFID.
