Today we announce the winners of the Little Wire USB controlled multi-tool. There were lots of great ideas for projects based on the Little Wire, thanks for your submissions.
tech2077 wins a Little Wire for his USB body monitoring system:
I would use this for a usb based body monitoring system with multiple sensors for body heat, heart rate, blood oxygen, blood pressure, ect. The device would fit on my forearm and be accessible over usb, then a graphing program on my computer would log the data every time it was attached. Would be interesting to see how different activities and times of day affect my vitals specifically.
Another winner is Ian Caister for his USB phone IO extension idea:
I have a phone that includes a built-in USB host (Nokia N8) so I would create a software interface to use the Little Wire from the phone as basically an expansion/IO port, taking advantage of the phone’s power.
Thanks to Ihsan Kehribar for supplying the free swag. Thank you for participating, there were a bunch of great ideas. As always feel free to share your projects in the forum.
The Little Wire is available for $19.00 from Seeed Studio.
