Let's do stats: Photon's got an Arduino "brain", four touch sensors at the base, Canon HFR300 recording HD video and stills, JVC GZ-MS110 recording 720p video, GoPro Hero recording video, Motorola Triumph smartphone streaming video to Dino's display booth via WiFi, Motorola Droid Razr HD smartphone streaming live video to Ustream.
All of the MFNC staff have been eagerly watching Photon's construction process on Dino's Hack-a-Week TV channel on YouTube. Hearing Photon sing "Daisy Bell" (famously sung by HAL 9000 in 2001:A Space Odyssey) was simultaneously amazing and terrifying! Subscribe to Dino's channel and revel in the enthusiasm and creativity!
Photon is just one of hundreds of spectacular projects that will be at Maker Faire North Carolina on Saturday, June 15th. Don't miss this super-fun and super-creative event!
See ya real soon!
