IBM's GF11 Supercomputer had a central switch called the Memphis Switch. This was a reference to Federal Express, which at the time had a single "super-hub" where all packages were sent to Memphis, Tennessee each day, sorted overnight, and sent to their destinations the next morning.
I also designed a very simple board called the "WAN Mini-Backplane" which replaced a couple of cables that connected WAN I/O modules with a base board. I called it the "Wamba" board for short. Wamba is my favorite character from Ivanhoe. He's the court jester -- his full name is "Wamba, son of Witless". Great name for a board with no intelligence whatsoever.
[Actually the character is very clever. Pax vobiscum.]
...but in a similar vein - back in the early '80s, I worked for a company that built business equipment, specifically financial document printers.
One of their printers encoded checks with the magnetic ink necessary for proper document handling in those days (it's still around), called the MICR-1.
It was programmable in a simple symbolic language that one of the management referred to, disparaginly, as a "MICR-Mouse language." Unfortunately, it stuck - we programmed the interfaces in "MICR-Mouse" for the rest of the time I was there.
Raspberries are aggregates of drupelets (i.e., a bunch of small fruits, each containing a stone or pip). Strawberries are aggregate accessory fruits (i.e., the "fruit" is not from the normal fruit part of the plant). Wikipedia has all the details if you are /really/ interested.
I recommend having a look at the Quite Interesting website (qi.com), and watching the TV series if you can get it where you live. It is a wonderful source of useless information, and very entertaining.
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.
