of Calvin & Hobbes fame -- he replicates himself so he can play while his other selves do his homework. IIRC, there were two sequences, one just involving replication and the other involving Calvins from different times -- and predictably, in both cases the Calvins end up fighting....
I LOVE Calvin & Hobbes -- I have all of the cartoon books -- I also like it when we see things from the perspective of one of the parents, in which case Hobbes is seen as a stuffed toy, as opposed to the live creature perceived by Calvin.
I knwo it sounds weird, but Calvin sometimes reminds me of me (when I was younger, of course :-)
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.
