This is the ultimate solution for a variety of entry-level mesh networking applications. This server integrates Xbee with Ethernet bridge for seamless integration of low-power wireless networking to any TCP network. It is 100% Arduino compatible with the functionality of an Arduino board, Ethernet shield and Xbee shield in a single compact package!
Check out the InMojo Market product page for some easy examples of an embedded server using AJAX. We hope these examples will inspire a variety of sensing/actuating networks!

Just a quick post. Today, I took a look at the number of orders our sellers have shipped through InMojo and found a very healthy upward trend throughout last year. This is an encouraging sign for the growth of the InMojo community. Way to go, everyone!
On the tech side, we've added the ability to append tracking information to orders marked as "shipped." Stores will now be able to enter tracking numbers and URLs at the time that the status of an order is updated on a store's Sales page. When the "shipped" status is selected for an order, the fields for tracking information become visible.
A month has gone by since the four days of maker madness at the Hall of Science in Queens, New York where both Open Hardware Summit and Maker Faire New York took place. InMojo debuted Ikimo, our open robotics platform at the Open Hardware Summit, a day devoted to all things open hardware. Maker Faire, as usual, did not disappoint with its variety of luminaries from all over the DIY-verse. We had several interesting conversations at the intersection of our vision for Ikimo and the plethora of awesome projects at Maker Faire. Talking with the AtFAB Team from Filson and Rohrbacher inspired the idea for a screw-less, glue-less version of the Ikimo chassis that can be simply snapped together in a similar way that AtFAB's furniture is put together. To add to the excitement of the 4 days, Ikimo took home an Editor's Choice Award. We could not have been happier.
On the marketplace side of things, we've rolled out a streamlined checkout process for PayPal. Now users can complete payments directly from the InMojo site and only need to visit PayPal briefly for authenticating. Buyers alone won't benefit from these improvements. Sellers now will no longer receive false-start messages when a user does not complete a checkout procedure. We are continually working on more improvements to the site and user experience, so look forward to some more tweeks in the coming weeks!
Your computer mouse knows things. It knows when you left click. It knows when you right click. But most importantly it knows when you move. Rachel's Electronics' Mouse Eye lets you tap into that knowledge and add precise delta X and Y movement info it to your project. Using Avago optical navigation technology the mouse eye can track and even give a mouse eye view of any surface using the pixel data option.

We just found out that one of our favorite makers Joe Hudy is raising funds to travel to New York to present his latest work at Maker Faire NYC in September. If you were are Maker Faire Bay Area in May you probably remember Joe as the fourteen year old natural-born hacker and burgeoning open source hardware powerhouse behind the bright orange Extreme Marshmallow Cannon. If you haven't seen the marshmallow cannon, you own it to yourself to check it out (and probably to build one) on Look What Joey's Making.
If you'd like to help Joe get to Maker Fair NYC, you can make a donation on his site. And you would be in good company. The Kurt Warner Foundation gave Joe an autographed photo and a worn-by-Kurt autographed glove to raffle off. Details on how to get tickets.
Personally I really hope Joe is able to maker it Maker Faire NYC. As a native East-coaster, I'm not just ready to cede all of the marshmallow shooting credibility to California just yet.
