This video shows our concept demo of an Internet Stuffed-toy that tweets, talks, plays videos and synchronizes with Dropbox using a RaspberryPi and Carriots M2M Application Platform.
We have released the tutorial on how to create the toy here: https://www.carriots.com/community/domokun_iot_example_internet_stuffed_toy
Here you can also find a video of the toy working: https://vine.co/v/br1WHF11KnA
The tutorial includes all the source code you need to make the toy and electric schema
This toy is part of our first developer contest to create an internet stuffed toy:https://www.carriots.com/community/challenge1
We hope you enjoy the tutorial and you have 3 Weeks left to enter the Challenge!
BTW some info on Carriots :
Carriots.com is an M2M Application Platform on the Cloud (PaaS model). It is a platform aimed at Developers and System Integrators to build easier, faster, cheaper and more scalable projects. By using it in our product development of M2M projects for large companies we have been able to reduce cost and time by 70% percent.
Please visit our website for more product and company information. We also have some nice tutorials like this one http://www.carriots.com/tutorials/arduino_carriots/alert_system where you can get an easy overview of how easy is to build app on Carriots.
