HOW TO – Build a Bluetooth-enabled, Linux-controlled LED sign

Here’s our new Make Projects: Small Form Factor PC ebook (sample chapter) on LinuxDevices…

“This detailed book chapter describes how to add a Linux-based, Bluetooth-connected control interface to a scrolling LED sign. The 35-page chapter is excerpted from Make Projects: Small Form Factor PCs, a 232-page O’Reilly book featuring nine interesting and instructive embedded projects, many based on Linux.”Link.

Make Projects: Small Form Factor PCs is the only book available that shows you how to build small-form-factor PCs — from kits and from scratch — that are more interesting and more personalized than what a full-sized PC can give you. Included in the book are projects for building personal video recorders, versatile wireless access points, digital audio jukeboxes, portable firewalls, and much more. This book shows you how to build eight different systems, from the shoebox-sized Shuttle system down to the stick-of-gum-sized gumstix – Link.

Thanks gnomic.

    The linked article mentions that the book is available from booksellers or from O’Reilly. O’Reilly seems to only have it as a PDF download purchase, and I can’t seem to find it on Amazon/Borders or Barnes & Noble. Is it just too recent to be showing up there yet or what?

    Is it going to be coming out in hard copy? On linuxdevices it indicates it should be available from booksellers. I prefer to have hard copy of my books, but if that’s never going to happen I’ll just buy the pdf.

  4. bjepson says:

    Daenris, we don’t have any immediate plans to put it out in hard copy, so it’s ebook-only for the time being.
