Pyk Long Range Communications Device

Have you ever sat down watching Stargate, and marvel at their long range communications device? Well live the dream here people!

After watching Stargate Universe I decided it was time to build my own long range communications device.

This device would, rather than take control of another person, just automatically dial them in Skype so you can communicate...over long distances....using a communications stone.

In the concept stage of this project the call numbers for your intended skype recipients are hard coded.

Once tests prove successful the webpage being served from the arduino will be upgraded to allow for configuring of 'stones' and also error checking and handling when stones are changed or added during an active call.

    So I am having trouble running javascript from the arduino webserver.

    I may have to create a standalone webpage that drags data out of the arudino published data.

    Will investigate, however have run out of time prior to SciFi contest submission.

    In stage 1 I managed to get the arduino communicating with the RFID tags, recording their value and publishing to a webpage.
