Several people today linked to Tickle. Now I have heard about Tickle before. I even have it listed in my blog post about Programming With Blocks. But today I looked at it again and among the listed supported devices in the Philips Hue. It turns out that I listed the Philips Hue as a supported device along with several types of robots and Arduino devices and drones but I never looked closely at the Hue. What is the Hue? In short it is a software controlled light bulb.
The bulbs are not cheap by any means but they are not as expensive as some robots either. I may have to get a couple of try them out over the summer.
