TreeV3, dSwitch controlled christmas tree


#1

I’ve installed a custom linux kernel on my EV3, known as ev3dev, which allows me to do many of the things that a Raspberry Pi can. I installed nginx and php onto my EV3, and am using it as a mobile web server for controlling Chrimstas tree lights!

The project page can be found here: http://www.ev3dev.org/projects/2014/11/30/TreeV3/

Also, why is the dSwitch $40? Isn’t it just a few very simple components?

Hey GeekDude,

That’s awesome! Thanks for sharing that!

Sorry to not address the last question the first time around. We charge so much for the dSwitch because we’re an evil corporation trying exploit people. Plain and simple.

Dalmatian coats lined with baby-seal fur aren’t free; we need to make that money somehow! We have expensive tastes at Dexter Industries.
