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).
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
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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
