Control a Philips Hue lightbulb with the Harry Potter Kano Coding Kit


#1

Hi everyone.

Lots of people have been asking about the ability to use the coding wand outside the Kano App and here it is! This is a fan-made project made by Jesse Lieberg (@GammaGames on Twitter) that lets you get data from the wand and use it to control a Philips smart lightbulb.

It would be awesome if we could get a IFTTT service put together. Then we could do a ton of things with the wand.

We haven’t done it at the office yet, but if anyone wants to give it a go, Webhooks seems the way to go on IFTTT

Thank you for joining the forum @GammaGames, would love to read any further progress you’ve been making on the wand integrations!

Cheers.

I haven’t done anything more since then, it’s been pretty busy with the holidays. Maybe in the new year!
