This month, I’m the featured interview in Circuit Cellar magazine! In the Q&A article I discuss many of the interesting projects I’ve worked on, how my education at Cornell impacted my entrepreneurial spirit, my recent book release, and what inspires me to teach others.
For my Halloween costume this year, I decided to turn myself into outer space – I sewed 12 individually addressable LEDs to my shirt, and programmed them to twinkle like stars. To complete the look, I designed and 3D printed a rocket ship that I could wear on my left arm.

The Trans-African Hydro-Meteorological Observatory (TAHMO) Project recently brought together 12 participants from all over Africa (and Spain) to build a unique weather station specifically design for Africa. My consultancy, Blum Idea Labs, proudly supported the workshop with Arduino Tutorials and a welcome video to get the participants excited about what they would be able to accomplish.
