I have a BlinkyTile kit that I am planning on making into a clock, using an Intel Edison and Node.js
For testing, I just connected one tile to the Light Buddy and the Light Buddy connected to the Edison USB Host port.
After some learning about the details of Node serialport, I can get the tile to blink in the colors that I want. So far, I am happy.
Before I start soldering the other tiles in, I was wondering if there is some documentation on the Light Buddy. I sort of hacked my way through by digging through the sample code.
In looking at the samples and some of the source code, there are hints that the Light Buddy can do more than just take tripletts of bytes and send them off the the Tiles.
Plus there are two buttons on the board that I haven't been able to find anything out about.
Can somebody point me to some additional information? Thanks
