One of the great things about the Intel Edison is that it can act as a server. This means that you can store files and share them if you like. This a great opportunity for curating playlists and storing other audio files. This can kind of be thought of a digital version of the mixtape. I sure miss those!
You can create a directory structure on the Edison and share it with your friends via a HTML page. Anyone with the IP address and who is connected to the same network as the Edison can access your files.
The Edison isn’t only a storage unit though, you can interact with it and it’s GPIOs. In this Instructable you will learn how to set up an audio server and how to record, play and embed recordings. This can be used to take field recordings or to record your next great idea and share it with the world! Well, maybe just your office.
