As with most projects I am trying to learn the hackaday.io system, and rushing against the deadline to get my project entered into the contest. Please be patient as I figure out the best way to organize my page. Over time it should become more coherent.
One of the requirements for the Hackaday Prize is that you build something. I asked myself if building a communications protocol would count? While I have built my fair share of PCB's I really wanted to push myself and make something that will benefit everyone if successful. Being able to add internet connectivity to a device for less than $1 would be an awesome addition to so many projects. And if that doesn't count I can always fall back on the technicality that I did 'build' a Raspberry Pi with a nRF24L01+ plugged into it. Right?
Please read the project logs (starting from the bottom) for details of this project.
