Serious IOT business going on over at the Contiki blog. What most interests me is low power devices that have a sub gigahertz and 2.4ghz radio.

Share or sell food from your garden to the people around you, or get food from your neighbors. This site makes it easy to monitor local crops and get alerts when they are ready. http://www.ripenear.me/

Dog in my turnip flowers the other day. The bees have gotten a GPS lock on my house and love these flowers.

Hand crafted epoxy coated brushless motors! Last touch-ups today with the brush before going on the robot and in to the sea. Bring it on Monterey Bay salt water.

Tried potting some brushless motors today for salt water resistance using tape and toilet bowl wax with west marine epoxy. This is the next trial of Marks motor techniques for OpenROV. The last version used a PVA 3d printed mold. He machined some bushings for me too. Just need to put the motors in a lathe to clean them up, spray the magnets in the motor bell with a protective coating, and I'm good to go. Bring it on ocean!
