I want to introduce you to my little cyborg. It’s based on a Rapiro robot, but filled with an Arduino for controlling it’s movement, an Intel Edison for higher brain functions and stuff like voice control, video object detection and much more. With all of it’s different types sensors and actors this makes it a perfekt simulation of an IoT backend which I will use to demonstrate how easy it is to create a perfect looking and working frontend to your IoT system with Apache Flex. Because skinning is where Flex outperforms all the IoT systems I have come across. Ever wanted that control panel in your hall to look like one of those fancy Starship Enterprise panels? With Flex it’s actually easy, and I’ll show you how to do it. Also I’ll demonstrate how Apache Flex BlazeDS is the perfect backend for your IoT system.
