Come see JavaScript hardware hacking in action. This talk demos a few applications of the Tessel microcontroller, which leverages the power of Node to connect to existing APIs. What happens when you connect Twilio to a sensor? Use Meteor.JS to measure real-world data? Move physical things in response to console commands? Come find out how easy it can be to make hardware talk to the web.
