Inspired by our modern world, in which distance is an unspoken member of every relationship, we developed Link.
Link is a platform to connect people in a simple yet meaningful way. Powered by the internet of things and the intel edison platform, Link allows you to connect with your loved ones and have a lo-fi communication.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Pull the Code
The code is present on two github repos:
Here is the code that you will need to deploy to your intel edison:
And here is the code you will need for running your own server:
Clone both these repos.
To deploy code to your edison,
* export EDISON_HOST="you_edison_name.local"
* from the hackaton_iot folder:
npm run deploy
Step 2: Plug in the Sensors
* intel edison
* Grove base shield
* Grove sensor kit
Wire all the sensors as described in comments in hackaton_iot/sensors.js
Step 3: Build a Fancy Case
Your imagination is the limit.
Step 4: Link Your Friends!
By touching the touch sensor, you attempt to link with your friend.
They will hear a sound, the red led will turn on and their LCD will look as in the picture.
If they touch the sensor, you are connected.
While no-one lets go of the touch sensor, you are sharing that precious moment <3
Step 5: Connect
One of the apps we made let's you share your mood with your friend by using a rotary sensor.
