SCoW and Chow


A lot of food at tonight’s SCoW. The evening started with Alan, Budi, and Danny discussing the Inscape Access Control System. I fueled the fire with some donuts.

Many Hands Make Light(-emitting diodes) Work


At last night’s SCoW, Alan W, Rehana, Danny, and Budi worked together to solder  many many IR LEDs for the multitouch table. Meanwhile Wim worked on the multitouch software.
