Pat Arneson built this clever network monitor that uses a BlinkM, an Arduino, and a little python.

I never appreciated my internet connection enough when I lived in the city. Now that I’m a country mouse I think it really IS a series of tubes. Reliable it’s not. So I thought it would be fun to use an Arduino, my BlinkM and a bit of python to create a visual network monitor.

  1. I’m impressed. I’ve never been able to get a small snake to help monitor my network. I’ve had to use the larger ones. Mostly to keep people from touching the cables.
