It really was a lot of fun -- also the folks at Synapse Wireless (www.Synapse-Wireless.com) are going to make all the design files open source so anyone can make as many as they want...
I'm trying to persuade them to provide them as pre-built kits
I love the CapNET concept, I wished I could have been there and got a propeller beanie! I can only imagine the fun of the CapNET members walking around and "meeting one another". Neat idea and a great marketing device. Wishing I could have one (or 3 or 4 for the fun of it).
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
