It's has been a busy few months here at mbed, here's a wrap up of a few interesting things that have been happening with mbed -
- Collaboration beta Trials
- Automated Heating Controller using Google Calendar
- NEW NFC Stack for mbed
- UK SMART Grants for Prototype to Product
- Beta Testers Wanted - 3G Mobile Internet
- Live Webinar : Rapid Prototype & Development of USB Connected Devices Using mbed and LPCXpresso
Collaboration beta Trials
We're introducing fully integrated support for code collaboration within the mbed Compiler and Website. Using distributed version control model (DVCS), will allow creation, sharing and collaboration on code repositories and we're looking for a group of developers that are interested in testing these features on a shared library or project.

Automated Heating Controller using Google Calendar
Every now and again there is a home automation hack that seems like it might be something you'd want to implement in your own home. In this project, a developer uses an mbed to control a heater based on events in set in a Google Calendar. Read more
NEW NFC Stack for mbed
Yep that's right, NFC for mbed! Donatien Garnier of AppNearMe has written the µNFC Stack for mbed, allowing developers to interface mbed to the NXP PN532 NFC Controller The stack allows you to build your own NFC-enabled hardware, and interface the AppNearMe framework for Android devices, allowing you to focus on building your feature-rich app that compliments your device.

UK SMART Grants for Prototype to Product
Ashley Evans of the Electronic Technology Networks has contacted us about SMART Grants, and we think they might be of interest to the UK based mbed developers. An mbed user developing a commercial product could be eligible for a funding up to 60% of their R&D cost. Read more
Beta Testers Wanted - 3G Mobile Internet
Join us in testing the new libraries we've created for interfacing the LPC1768 mbed to a Vodafone K3770 USB 3G internet dongle. Beta testing is already under way, and you can find more information and the library on the cookbook page. We've also setup a forum thread for all questions, bug reports and feature suggestions. So if you've been dreaming about a remote internet-connected application, why not begin your mbed + 3G prototype today! Read more
