I love this stuff

I love this 5-minute format -- in addition to being a co-host, I'm planning on giving one of the 5-minute presentations myself -- in fact I'm planning on three -- a different one each day -- unless we get too many other folks, in which case I'll gracefully yield the podium...

Max, you are the master of the five-minute presentation!  Look forward to seeing whatever utterly useless gadget you've dreamed up this year!!!!

I was afraid that I'd only be presenting vapor. The Atmega32U4 chips that my two boards require for Arduino compatibility are out of stock everywhere in the package I need.

Fortunately, Twitter came to the rescue. I was able to make a trade and I now have actual working boards. The only further hint I'll give is that, from a software pwspective, the two boards look just like an Arduino Leonardo.

My other Smackdown project uses a Microchip PIC, the enemy of the Atmega, so it wasn't affected by the shortage.

@Duane: I was afraid that I'd only be presenting vapor.

I think you can get tablets for that (but just in case, I'll sit in the back row while you are presenting :-)

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.
