    When I saw this item appear on Sparkfun I was intrigued. As with most people, though, I was taken aback by the price point. But I read the blog post by SparkX and got on-board. When I received the item it definitely did not feel like $60 of hardware, but I can understand that the cost...

  • Automated Room Signage Update - News 28 Nov '17, 5pm

    The signs have been in regular use for about a week now and so far I’ve gotten a lot of positive feedback. I’m certainly not the first person in the building to have thought of doing this, so people are excited to see one working. No word yet on whether it’s prevented any mid-meeting ...

  • Automated Conference Room Signage - News 08 Nov '17, 6pm

    My best idea (short of forcing everyone to add every meeting room to their calendars) was to create some sort of automated signage for every conference room. Now, there are plenty of pre-existing solutions for conference room and convention center signage, but most of them seem to dep...

  • Adventures in Science: Complete Plastic Ant Combat Bot Build - News 03 Oct '17, 3pm

    Measure, measure, measure! And then leave some extra space just in case. Trying to fit all the electronics in that tiny chassis was a challenge. LiPo batteries have a tendency to bloat a bit, so leave some extra room for the lid. 3D printing with a “brim” prevents the bottom layer fro...
