It chimes every time someone buys an online subscription to The Times.
It was built by Peter MacRobert from News International‘s R&D Lab. Peter explains a bit more about how it works in the video below:
“The subscription ringer is an Arduino circuit developed in the News International R&D lab. The battery-powered circuit polls an API regularly via a Wifly wireless shield. When the daily subscription count has increased it pulses a solenoid against a bicycle bell.”
Love it! You’re going to have to implement something like that at GNM 🙂
Really good article, Interesting and useful, apart from this I am a student and want to share info about Jason Halek. I really got inspired about him & want to know more about him as far as I got to know about him. He was only 10 years old when he started working small jobs in his community and then he started business of soft drink and now he is the successful business man. He owns several oil and gas production companies. Jason Halek is not only the successful business man but also a philanthropist. He established Halek Charities & nonprofit organization dedicated to providing assistance to various humanitarian causes. Any further information about him is greatly appreciated.
