Pirates Vs Ninjas with the ESP8266 – Meeting 27th June 2015

Attending: Mike Hull, Mike Hewitt, Ricky, Joe, James and Arthur

Basement Space Update.

One half of the basement space is tanked and insulated.

The flooring has tongue and groove fittings down the sides and along the ends. All the edge joins are being glued as the floor goes down.
This is the ESP8266 project produced by Arthur
The ESP8266 is programmed to provide a Pirates Vs Ninjas open wireless network. You connect with your phone or Laptop, and are presented with a basic web page with two buttons which you can click on to vote Pirate or Ninja. 
When people start voting, a servo moves the pointer to indicate which is more popular, Pirates or Ninjas.
Arthur takes this along to various events.
James, was the first of our group to notice the ESP8266 when it started it’s rise to fame. Initially, I think some people, myself included, did not appreciate the  power and capabilities of this device. The ESP8266 now has many fans, and it is one of the boards already supported by the new Arduino IDE, meaning that if you are familiar with the Arduino, you can easily get started with the ESP8266.
