Skynet Blink

First, let's import Cylon:

var Cylon = require('cylon');

Now that we have Cylon imported, we can start defining our robot


Let's define the connections and devices:

  connections: {
    arduino: { adaptor: 'firmata', port: '/dev/ttyACM0' },

    skynet: {
      adaptor: 'skynet',
      uuid: "96630051-a3dc-11e3-8442-5bf31d98c912",
      token: "2s67o7ek98pycik98f43reqr90t6s9k9"

  devices: {
    led13: { driver: 'led', pin: 13, connection: 'arduino' } 

Now that Cylon knows about the necessary hardware we're going to be using, we'll tell it what work we want to do:

  work: function(my) {
    console.log("Skynet is listening");

    my.skynet.on('message', function(data) {
      data = JSON.parse(data);


      if ( === 'on') {
      } else {

Now that our robot knows what work to do, and the work it will be doing that hardware with, we can start it:
