Hi Karen,

Here is the link to the video of Eric and the sledgehammer. It's from the day 1 keynote and it is the video titled "Chasing the Land Speed Record" : http://www.ni.com/niweek/keynote-videos/. It's at about the 2 minute mark. Enjoy!

@kfield: I'd love to get a video clip of Eric wielding his sledgehammer!

If only I had a coconut for every time I'd heard someone say that!

I overheard an NI person saying after the keynote that he actually hit the instrument inside the concrete block... not in the plan!

custom design dead?

once everyone standarizes on the same hardware platform there will be a company that will do it better and more efficient in a custom form...so custom design will never be dead...cars are not, bread is not, and clothes are not (sure, there is lots of "hardware" standarization in those markets but customization is alive and well)

I have always been amused at people who say things without thinking first. Custom hardware will ALWAYS be needed, as the requirements change too much to have a standard HW design meet all needs. Even if you standardize on a paticular SOM module, you will still need an interface PCB to connect it to what ever physical devices your application is controlling or monitoring.

Max, What would you do with the coconut? Perhaps I shouldn't ask.

While there will be advantages to using a platform, there will alwasy be situations where the platform falls short and some form of custom will be necessary.

At the first NI Week (1995) NI gave out T shirts. On the back was "Top 10 Reasons why I attended NI Week 95." One of the reasons was "Rally en masse for Undo in LabVIEW."

A few years Later, NI Week was big enough to move to the convention center. NI gave the usual snappy keynote. Near the end, they made a coding mistake and quietly used undo.

Standing ovation.

When I tried to write about it, my print editors shot me down saying that it would do nothing for people new to LabVIEW and I should focus on features that would attract new people to it. Times have changed. At that time. we would print "LabView," as opposed to the proper spelling, LabVIEW. the reasoning was that using all the caps drew too much attention to the name.

VIEW is actually an acronym. Who can tell me what it stood for?

Dr. Truchard's talks usually have hints of that to come from NI. But if some kind of common hardware platform emerges, it would likely ne Aruino, Raspberry Pi, or something like that. For saftware development, the "common" platform is iOS and Android. But, one size will never fit all.

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
