@kfield: Ah Max, I failed to remember that tie dye will NEVER go out of fashion for you. As for very wide bell bottoms, I hope you've tossed those!

Toss them? Never! I'm just waiting for them to come back into style (as is the case with most of my clothes :-)

@kfield  No, I was more the grungy bluejeans type.  But you reminded me of a story.  Was in the college ham radio shack with my girlfriend and texting with someone in the USA.  (Back then we called it "teletype").  He asked if the streaking craze had caught on up in Canada yet; we didn't know what he meant.  My girlfriend suggested he might be referring to tie-dying, which I had never heard of.  Of course, on the "over" I asked, and found out what "streaking" meant.  And yes, it did catch on quickly.

Yep fairly common for people to tape tiny mirrors to their speakers for some home made light effects.

@Glen, Caleb I was just thinking that these day's you'd use lasers and mirror galvanometers or something similar to do that.  Then I remembered I rescued some bar code readers from the trash not long ago.  They have a laser in and some kind of deflection mechanism for the scan.   I just have to get the other 10 000 things done that I need to do, then I'll look at doing something with that.,,,,

@kfield: Were you also into tie-dyed fashion?

You make it sound like tie-dye has gone out of fashion!

@zeeglen Glen, I just gotta ask: Were you also into tie-dyed fashion?

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

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.
