In Spain, we celebrate Fools Day on 28th December -- it's called the "Santos Inocentes" day, when the Catholic Church in Spain commemorates the New Testament story of King Herod's slaughter of the innocent children of Judaea... and we call this day's pranks "inocentadas"
@wilber_xbox: Thanks for the video Max. Really enjoyed them.
Thanks for the feedback -- on the one hand I know that there's more than enough ways to fritter away one's time -- but every now and again you come across something that's really worth sharing -- I really enjoy these myself, so it's great to hear that others like them also.
@kfield: Thanks for sharing the link to Matt's inspiring and uplifting video. We are indeed one world!!!
It really is an uplifting video, isn't it? I can watch it over and over again, and each time it makes me feel happy and makes me smile (unlike when I do my "happy dance," which leaves everyone else with tears rolling down their faces :-)
Love the Matt Harding one. My first thought was "Why didn't I do something like that - I've been to all sorts of outlandish places..??" Then I thought "Well if I had, it would have been with my Dad's 8mm movie camera, or maybe with one of those early over-the-shoulder VHS monsters with a resolution even worse than You Tube's." Matt has made a very cool use of today's video technology.
This was just what I needed at the end of a long day, thanks for sharing Max. And i'm loving the comments in this article... It's pretty cool that whenever you come read an article on the EE Times, you feel like you're a part of this community and can contribute to the discussion without being made to feel like a schmuck. Go take a look at some YouTube comments and you'll see how lucky you guys are to have a great group of people here who always have something interesting to say :)
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.
