The interesting thing is that there's speculation that the great masters used a version of this technique based on a martially mirrored prism -- check out this blog: http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-blogs/maxs-cool-beans-blog/4414266/A-Camera-Lucida-for-the-21st-Century?Ecosystem=microcontroller-mcu

I guess this fills a void for some people. But how do users wean themselves away from a new form of reliance on computers? That is, will time show whether people learn how to composed and execute drawings or paintings, or do we have a new form of charcoal impressions/carbon paper? I don't think this is more than a toy. If you're watching progress on the tablet, and can zoom in and out, I don't think any new actual skills are developed: you can only copy, not make, art. Maybe a latter-day Andy Warhol will emerge, but I never regarded him as an artist.

Hi Carolyn -- I will capture the plans and dimensions in a document this weekend and let you know. I like the idea of a light-weight stand that folds up -- you could use anything as a counterbalance such as a gallon plastic milk container full of water...

Terrific stand design! Please do provide the measurements. I may need visit Home Depot, for a bendy LED light. Painting the underside of the shelf and the bracket-side of the upright white might make a small difference. I keep a sheet of white card stock handy to reflect more light. When painting, I have to balence light and glare. Next idea– how to make a stand out of light weight materials, such as the aluminum used for metal clipboards, the ones with hinged storage compartments. The unit could be hinged to fold flat, with a space for stowing support triangles and the iDevice platform, inside. One would need to counterbalance the in-use stand with something heavy. Any ideas?

Hi Pete -- originally I was going to mound one of those "under cabinet fluorescent lights" under my shelf -- the sort you get under kitchen cabinets. But while I was at the Home Depot I saw a cheap LED table lamp (lots of super-bright white-light LEDs) -- the sort with a bendy neck that you can arrange anyway you like -- so I decided to use that instead.

Nice job, Max! Also, thanks for the kind words! I love your stand design; so much so that I think this weekend I'll borrow your concept and attempt to add a light under the shelf. That will solve any issues with shadows and poor room lighting! -Pete pete@cameraLucidaApp.com

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.
