W00t: Local hackerspace member Steve made IoT Bathroom occupancy light

I’m a member of Bloominglabs here in Bloomington, IN. A good friend of mine, Steve, made an “internet of things” bathroom occupancy light. He’s always doing something awesome with embedded systems, and this is his newest exploit. Not only that, but he brought us a great Instructable to boot!

As for me, I ordered 4 ESP8266’s from Ali Express. They’re 75MHz cpus with 802.11bgn with 2 GPIO pins.. for $3 ! I still do not have them in yet, but I’m already looking towards IoT as well. We’ll see what we can do with cheap, powerful IoT.

    Very cool Josh. I’ve been reading about the ESP8266’s on Hackaday lately and would like to see some of those. $3! W00t!

    Also thanks for the kind words and getting the word out about my Instructable!
