I’m almost done making my robotic knocker. This bad boy will wait for knock request over the internet, and tweet about them once the knock has been physically performed. I had to use soldering, my shitty circuit knowledge, arduino board programming, php, mysql and python to get this project off the ground. To finish I still need to finish the iphone app and polish my shitty server side authentication code and make the damn website.
Total time spent working on the project 8 hours. Total time spent making a team, trying to get them motivated to work on a crazy idea and ending up having to do the damn thing myself, 2 years.
Note about the comic, I was inspired by this commercial, which I’m sure you have seen, if you haven’t your in for a treat.
Alex is on vacation right now, but he’s a pro, and still draws comics, unlike some japanese manga writers…
