@caleb kraft Totally counting on you to bring one of your crazy inventions and compete this year. Any hints on what you're going to do??

Right now all I have planned is an "applaus-o-meter". It should be pretty cool! I did want to build a 50 watt special LED light for one of my aquariums, but that wouldn't really be much to show off, the heatsink looks really cool, but everyone would be blind the moment I turned it on!

@caleb kraft oh yeah, you're building the applause-o-meter, which in itself will be entered into the smackdown. Totally cool! If i have enough time, I may be a last-minute contestent!!

@Caleb: I'm sure your fish must applaud that LED in their own way. ;-)

This sounds really fun. Perhaps someone will invent an applause-o-meter spoofer gadget.

NEXT UPCOMING 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. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
