Want your Amicus to check email? Or send a twitter? Or grab data from a website? Or serve up sensor data world-wide?
There are countless possibilites for projects that connect to the Internet, but they were always out of reach because of convoluted stacks and protocols, now there's an easy way to do it with an Amicus.
The Ethernet shield allows you to use a Tibbo Ethernet module, where all of the TCP/IP stack complexity is done for you, so its really easy to just connect to any server.
