At the June meeting Martin showed how he motorised a motel carpark gate and using OpenWRT enabled guests to open it with their RFID room keys.
He also introduced us to OzBerryPi - a monthly meetup of people in Sydney who build internet connected things using open source software and hardware. They build projects with Arduino, RaspberryPi, Beaglebone, OpenWRT, Teensy, Android and various microcontrollers.
Christopher explained the details of registering a domain name.
Members of the group will demonstrate some new microprocessor applications and programming examples at Tuesday's meeting. - Neville Hoffman

A question and answer session will also be held at the meeting.
