I want to watch it and will look at both of these. I've been deadline-laden over the past few days so tomorrow is it. Thanks for going to so much trouble to find it for me. I'll let you know.

Hi again Carolyn.   I found a place to watch the "Walking through History" episode about the Industrial Revolution here

http://www.sbs.com.au/ondemand/video/37163075692/Walking-Through-History-The-Birth-Of-Industry

Though it may restrict you if you're outside Australia.   If not, it's worth a watch BUT it does not have the water generator bit that I thought it did.  So I am back to thinking that it WAS in the Escape to the Country episode above.  And try as I might I cannot find anywhere that will let me watch that.

Sorry for the confusion, and maybe you'll be able to watch that episode somehow.

This is always kind of stunning to me. With the advancements we've made in so many other areas, it is blows my mind that the combustion engine is still basically the same. We've made it much much more efficient, but that's about it. You'd think we would all be driving electric cars around by now!

@Carolyn - Got it!

http://www.channel4.com/programmes/walking-through-history/4od#3534089

However it won't play for me - says "this service is currently not available in your area"  (read: Get lost, you Aussie Git!  :-)

You might have more luck....

Carolyn sorry, I think I am leading you on a wild goose chase here.  My wife reminded me that it was not ETTC but another program where a guy walks around exploring aspects of Britain.   In this case he was exploring the roots of the industrial revolution.   Neither of us can remember what channel it was on which does not help.   I'll see if I can find some more and let you know, but don't waste time trying to find it at the moment.....

Carolyn it was on a BBC series called "Escape to the Country".  They had a compilation about people using industrial buildings and I think it was in this one:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b015r74j

but it's not available for viewing unfortunately, nor is it on the aussie channel I saw it on.   But you might find it somewhere.  As I recall the guy had solar as well, but obviously water is great, its 24/7 unless there is a drought....

I think that's fair - to put it at the front. That's pretty cool, powering his house. I live near a pretty active stream and was told to do the same thing. Hmmmm.

It just happened at the end of last week. Not sure what the company has done so far, but I would imagine it's something they would rather not repeat. Thanks for your well wishes.

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.
