Some of you will remember how about 8 months ago I had a daft idea to make some open source hardware - that would be cool for hackspaces to hack.

Well, yesterday I found out that Nanode has been nominated an award for the Best Internet of Things Open Source Project 2011.

From it's humble beginnings at London Hackspace, Nanode has come a long way - with over 1600 of the original units sold and branching out into two new complimentary new boards with low power wireless fitted.

First we have Nanode RF  with realtime clock and a micro SD card holder for datalogging.

Secondly is our Standalone Node - WiNode, also with a RTC and a high power H bridge IC for driving 2 dc motors or relays.

Both come in kit form - but we also have some pre-assembled Nanode RF units for those who would prefer not to solder.

We also have a very low cost programming cable - just £5 ( 6 euros,  $8) - customised with Nanode - to replace the over priced FTDI cable.

Here's an opportunity for Nanode users to support their home-grown product - and help vote for it in this weeks Award

We have a new website and online store underway - but for the moment http://nanode.eu/ has the recent details - or you can find them on my blog:

More details here of the products.

Well,

It was inevitable.

We have been outgunned by the mighty Arduino and their 500,000+ community.

It was a very close thing, until an hour ago, when Massimo Banzi (founder of Arduino) tweeted his 3688 followers to vote for Arduino - and the whole thing has gone viral.

Thanks for your support - we have done in 8 months what Arduinio took 5 years to achieve.

Appealing to friends, families and holders of a large number of IP addresses  ;-)

 - Nanode needs you to vote lots.
