We're please to announced that you can now buy the PTL-ino kit at the Swiss electronic shop boxtech.ch:
Until now you could only get hold of a PTL-ino by participate in one of our workshop.
As a start only 5 kits are available for order. Get yours before they're gone.
Finally here is how we where refereed to in the product page:
On top of that the PTL-ino is a true Swiss invention, coming from Post Tenebras Lab - the famous Geneve Hackerspace.
Just like the Bat-Signal is used to call batman, the PTL-signal is used to call a PTL member to open the door!
When you're working in the machines room, it is very difficult to hear the phone because of the noise. So we made 2 arduino pro mini that communicates over RF using the famous nRF24L01 chips (with external antenna) and the CH1817 chip to detect phone rings.
When a phone ring is detected a message is sent to the 2nd arduino which opens a relay that starts flashing an industrial emergency light in the machines room! :)
The PTLino workshop this weekend was a great success! Everyone left with a working Arduino comptabile board that they soldered themselves.
