Making a trade show demo in a week, for Seattle Sport Sciences

I do a lot of things.  Professionally, I spent the bulk of my work week with Digi Wireless Design Services.  It rebrands every year or two, as these things tend to do.  It was Etherios Wireless Design, and previously Spectrum Design Solutions.

As part of the rebrand, the marketing folks asked me if I’d talk about a project I did this last year that everyone was really happy with.  Usually I work in a team, but for this project, I was the only engineer.  I built an interactive wireless network with some Teensys and XBees and Neopixels, and got it show-ready in under a week end-to-end using an Othermill and some other rapid prototyping tools.  The customer really liked it, as did the rest of the Digi team.  This project with Seattle Sport Sciences even ended up in the Digi quarterly earnings report press release!

Anyway, I outlined a short video for them, and they wrote it up on a whiteboard, and tada!

I’m relatively pleased how this video turned out.  7 minutes, no scene cuts, and while I’m not perfectly fluent, I think I did a pretty good job.
