If I Only Had a Brain-1

Peripherals, Modules, and Crowdfunding

“I shall ask for brains instead of a heart; for a fool would not know what to do with a heart if he had one.” — Scarecrow, The Wizard of Oz

In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we set our sights on open source hardware design. Jake Janovetz (President – Opal Kelly) introduces us to a brand new crowdfunding campaign called the Brain-1. Jake and I discuss the the details of Brain-1, why they chose crowdfunding to launch this project, and what their new SYZYGY interconnect standard is all about. We also take a closer look at world’s smallest wearable sensor called UVSense rolled out this week at the Consumer Electronics Show. We check out how this sensor technology (which is a collaboration between cosmetics company L’Oreal and Northwestern University) could how we measure harmful UV ray exposure.
