Details

Tyler Johnson will be showing the inner workings of "the bomb" that debuted this year at OpenWest. The bomb has been dubbed an "escape the room in a box". It contains many puzzles and sensors that the user has to disable or work around to "defuse" the bomb before the time runs out. We will discuss the work that went into building the box, the communication protocol between a raspberry pi and 4 arduinos, and you will get a chance to try solving it yourself!

Since we're combining with the Perl group this month, there will also be a short presentation that's probably somewhat Perl-related.

IMPORTANT: This is on the 2nd Tuesday, not the usual 3rd Tuesday, since that falls the week of Thanksgiving this year.

ALSO: This will be at a different location for this month only. After this month, we'll be back at the Orem location.
