Even when we’re not here, the room is drawing a lot of power.What devices are turned on at any given time depends largely on which of us is here, and what we’re doing.Disclaimer: I received this book for free through the O’Reilly Blogger program. is a very short “book” on RFID (Radio Frequency Identification), a way to tag and identify objects over varying ranges, and how to use Arduino to create a few interesting RFID projects.The book assumes that you have some experience with Arduino and micro-controllers (i.e., do you know what a breadboard, jumper wires, and circuits are? We start with a very brief introduction to RFID, follow up with two introductory technical tutorials on Arduino, and end with a fairly simple home automation project: Between my officemate and me, we have dozens of devices drawing power in our office: two laptops, two monitors, four or five lamps, a few hard drives, a soldering iron, Ethernet hubs, speakers, and so forth. pic.twitter.com/Xn Qr ZNl2HL11/9/2016 PMRT @UAlberta_Fo MD: Edmonton filmmakers screen harrowing organ transplant documentary Nov. 11/9/2016 PMThanking all our wonderful staff who helped out in hosting evacuees from #ymmfire.Founded in 2002 by Nobel Laureate Carl Wieman, the Ph ET Interactive Simulations project at the University of Colorado Boulder creates free interactive math and science simulations.Ph ET sims are based on extensive education research and engage students through an intuitive, game-like environment where students learn through exploration and discovery.
When either of us comes into the room, all we have to do is tap our key fobs on a reader mounted by the door, and the room turns on or off what we normally use. The reader by the door reads the presence or absence of the tags.The book is only 28 pages, so it’s more of a long tutorial than a book, but it still acts as a good introduction to RFID. If you never did malware analysis before, the material presented can be overwhelming.It’s not easy to immediately put what you learned into action (you might understand a subject theoretically but might not be comfortable enough with the subject to put it into practice).
