Tom Igoe teaches courses in physical computing and networking, exploring ways to allow digital technologies to sense and respond to a wider range of human physical expression. He has a background in theatre, and his work centers on physical interaction related to live performance and public space. He is a co-author of the book Physical Computing: Sensing and Controlling the Physical World with Computers, which has been adopted by numerous digital art and design programs around the world. Projects include a series of networked banquet table centerpieces and musical instruments; an email clock; and a series of interactive dioramas, created in collaboration with M.R. Petit. He has consulted for The American Museum of the Moving Image, EAR Studio, Diller + Scofidio Architects, Eos Orchestra, and others.
Jump into the world of Near Field Communications (NFC), the fast-growing technology that lets devices in close proximity exchange data, using radio signals. With lots of examples, sample code, exercises, and step-by-step projects, this hands-on guide shows you how to build NFC applications for Android, the Arduino microcontroller, and embedded Linux devices.
* Dig into NFC’s architecture, and learn how it’s related to RFID
* Write sample apps for Android with PhoneGap and its NFC plugin
* Dive into NDEF: examine existing tag-writer apps and build your own
* Listen for and filter NDEF messages, using PhoneGap event listeners
* Build a full Android app to control lights and music in your home
* Create a hotel registration app with Arduino, from check-in to door lock
* Write peer-to-peer NFC messages between two Android devices
* Explore embedded Linux applications, using examples on Raspberry Pi and BeagleBone
