SCRoW + Arduino Meetup!

DSCN6549aThe Seattle Arduino Meetup met up at Jigsaw last night, bringing in lots of people. Not a lot of SCRoW activity, as everyone wanted to hear Bob Harris’s presentation on the internals of the Arduino IDE (Integrated Development Environment).

Following the talk, something odd happened. For some reason, Monica decided to lick a 9V battery. I don’t understand it, but I did manage to snap a photo:

Those nutty Arduino folks!

On the less-nutty end of the Arduino fan spectrum was Rame Chitturi.  Rame was fascinated by Team Elcano’s autonomous vehicle and told of his career in industrial automation.  Rame’s career path started as a child watching Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and was hooked.

Lastly, here’s Monica again chatting with a fellow Arduino fan after the night’s presentations were complete:

I can’t speak for Monica, but licking a 9V is a quick way to find out whether it’s still good. If it is, the electrolytes in your saliva will conduct current between the two terminals. A fresh one gives your tongue a sharp, tingling shock, but it’s not strong enough to burn the skin.
