The BeagleBone ( http://beagleboard.org/bone ) is a powerful little computer that has an ARM processor and lots of I/O pins to which you can connect all kinds of cool electronics. It comes with an innovative software development environment based on NodeJS and the Cloud9 IDE. Using nothing but a browser, you can write Javascript code which runs on the board and controls the I/O pins. We shall see how this is done.
