That dude get's the prize for Dad of The Year, for sure. Although I could probably pull it off, I wouldn't waste my time. After a perfunctory "Thanks dad", my kid would shrug at the console and run off with the iPad.
Max, here is another suggestion, which, if its burried in this trail, I apologize. But did you see him accidently turn off the LEDs about half way into the video? I thought I did so my recommendation is to place that control button off to the side somewhere. That way when you've just about got all of your friends and neighbors hypnotized into sending you monthly checks, you don't abruptly end their impending bliss, putting them into week long "Office Space" like daze.
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.
