    Congratulations to all of you! I'm glad to see we had such interest in the subject.

    I hope each of you will enjoy reading and learning from Frank's book. And for those who didn't win, let me say that just based on discussions here, I'd rate this book a "must buy" for anyone who's into Java and would like to explore the Internet of Things and in interfacing specialized hardware. And the hardware he's using isn't just trivial stuff. I've done more than one project using the NeoPixel display, for example. It's an LED strip that can be programmed to control the intensity and color of each LED individually. You can do "chase" effects, lighting controls, and more. And that's just one of the neat toys he discusses!
