There’s a new plug in the works, with a really neatlight sensor:
The chip is even smaller than what I’ve been working with until now. The nice thing about the TSL2561 is that it has six orders of magnitude dynamic range and that it’s interfaced via I2C.
The JeePlug port headers are in fact perfect for sensor chips like these, which often only tolerate up to 3.6V:
The Lux Plug will also work with an Arduino, through the Plug Shield.
Stay tuned. There’s more coming…
