I got my entry in with about 24 hours to spare:
Twenty two entries were posted by the cut-off out of 75 in round 2. Three now get chosen to present at ESC in Silicon Valley later this month.
Being the Easter break (we have a 4 day weekend break over Easter: Friday to Monday) we were due to take a short vacation in the country but had to that delay that so that I could submit before leaving. I had to quickly learn how to post a video on Youtube. I used my phone to record some material, then edited it with Moviemaker. I had to subscribe to a video converter because the phone’3G video format needed changing.
My main implementation issue was that I only got the LVDS LCD panel at the last moment and discovered that I hadn’t ordered the touch screen version; and it required 12V that wasn’t available in the kit. I wrote about these in the report and will blog all of this. I got the touch panel today and that now works. I’ll blog that as well.
