Alumni On the Move

Andrew Temple (SWE) joined startup called Variable Technologies ,working on the NODE platform - a wireless sensor platform that connects to smartphones. Andrew reports that the NODE is a cool gadget/system that lets a user buy the main NODE platform and then add-on sensor modules specific to their desired application (like people in the food business have bought the NODE + and infared thermometer module to measure food and cooking/food storage conditions, a group of hot-air balooners have bought NODE+climate sense in order to track hot airbaloon conditions and measure their own elevation, etc). NODE was sited at the CES (the Consumer Electronics Show); see more at: CNN as the coolest gizmo they saw. Andrew reports that right now he’s working on color physics here - trying to squeeze out the best accuracy possible for color matching, which is highly desired by paint manufacturers.
