Maker Faire 2012

Come visit us at Maker Faire!

I just got the confirmation email that I’ve been accepted to have a booth at this year’s Maker Faire.  The booth is called A Sense of Things, as it was last year, and is numbered 7443.   I hope to visit with all my sensor friends on Saturday and Sunday, May 19th, 20th.

I’ll be showing our latest development on a low cost wireless sensor network designed for the “everyman” or “everywoman” who wants to track things in and around their homes.  Please stop by for a visit.

Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis (JCAP)

It will be interesting to watch the progress on artificial photosynthesis.

“The Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis (JCAP), to be led by the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab), will bring together leading researchers in an ambitious effort aimed at simulating nature’s photosynthetic apparatus for practical energy production. The goal of the Hub is to develop an integrated solar energy-to-chemical fuel conversion system and move this system from the bench-top discovery phase to a scale where it can be commercialized.”
