I’m working on some wearable, tiny color organ controllers for Maker Faire. Here’s a prototype.

An Arduino Mini Shield color organ driver

Not bad for toner transfer. I did have to brutalize some of the board to fix some shorts. 12 mils is pushing iron-on technology.

The Aspen Mini Maker Faire was a hit. Lots of interested folks came around and Phoebe had a good time explaining optimal estimators and the navigation scheme used in Tobor.

I saw this piece of art on the Gondola Plaza and looked up the artist when I got home: Mark Wallinger.

Amerika is supposed to be a reference to Goethe and Kafka, but I think the artist has forgotten the 1987 Kris Kristofferson miniseries by the same name.
