Let your geek shine.
Meet Dwight Eppinger, SparkFun customer and
Interactive Marketing Manager at Colorado’s
Copper Mountain Ski Resort. Using SparkFun’s
LED matrices and XBee modules, Dwight created a
status board that updates the resort trail map signs
on the condition of ski runs. From one computer,
Dwight can instantly let ski patrol, Copper Mountain
staff, and the people zipping down the slopes know
which trails to hit.
Whether you’re building a status system for an
entire mountain or just wirelessly reaching across
the room, the tools are out there. Find a new way
to communicate, and let your geek shine too.
