This is a network bandwidth meter, it is made from a good quality mbed, a good quality Futuba VFD display, a good quality programmable 32 rgb led strip, a fairly decent home made PCB, a poor quality bodged together laser cut acrylic lid, and a bad quality bodged together wooden case.

It has a 2nd hand 5V 5Amp PSU.

It uses ethernet to talk to things and understands http.

It uses bonjour/mdns/whatever it's name is to announce its self to the network and can be found on http://net-o-meter.local/ .

There is some code on hamming which fetches stats from boole and pokes the bandwidth meter with things to display.

Code now on github:

and the mbed code is here:

New mbed code, now works over ethernet!
