I'm very excited to hear that the AllJoyn protocol is being built into Windows 10. I'd love to hear more about if Microsoft plans to help port AllJoyn to NETMF or other smaller devices. I believe an AllJoyn type protocol is what is needed to create a robust IoT but it has to be implemented for every size device and currently it only seems suited for devices with OSes.
@Gineer - Thanks for the kind words. My blog, "Software & Sawdust" is dedicated to electronics/software & sawdust (woodworking) and mixing the two whenever possible. The project could very easily be duplicated in acrylic or other materials of your choosing.
