Hi Steve, and everyone,
It seems like a lot of people are actually pretty interested. Around 10
emailed me privately to say so. I'm not 100% sure about the hardware we'd
be able to offer at the moment, but we'll get back to you about that once
we figure out what it is we want done and what we need to order for this
kind of event. The hardware will probably be something small, electronics-y
in the Arduino family of hardware. But again, I'm not sure yet what we're
ordering yet. We just wanted to check on the feasibility of this kind of
project before we got excited and bought a bunch of things :)
