TVShow S02E12X55 Arduino Water Boarding
A lie is the sin man tells in fear. To seek the truth, we must aide the sinner in crossing a threshold to find deliverance. Problem is, I am binge watching Ally McBeal Season 4, so allow us to automate the process. Attach sensors to said victim...er...suspect and allow our computer (Jacob) and an Arduino Uno to decipher if they are telling the truth or require some, inspiration.


A notation; the quality of this video is sub-par because I often shoot on poverty driven video equipment, namely an elderly Droid Razr. Forgive the potato.

Maker Rage
Never firsts. Never is the man or woman leveraged slot A in to slot B with such perfection as to stand nobly after, nod, and immediately envision a future where every hand confidently holds their creation. A more astute reality of invention is the tongue pressing against clenched teeth, eyes closed with a breath counted as a tool or unseated component is firmly set upon a table -- or floor depending on the passing hour or day invested.

Unspoken, as consequence of a more emotionally vain culture, is the anxiety one inevitably and innately encounters when fabricating from scratch. Never firsts, as working through our impatience and frustrations are several incarnations of failure, incongruity and incompatibility.

Such is salvation when discovering the simplicity of a loose wire, and while we under breath scorn our selves for such an uninspired error, it is elation to ease our discomfort from the maker-rage that swelled with in.

Modern conditioning has us damning the man or woman who shows crazed temperament as though it were not an intuitive biological plucking of strands. Never first were you to be looked upon with unease as you squabbled with sudden incarnations of persons who as well have no answer as to the over sight. Betrayed by your own imagination, it is then in this moment of grief you take note of your surroundings, hoping that no one took notice of your momentary fancy.

Well it is them who should be damned. History is littered with the fanatical who birthed inventions that ushered mankind in to new eras of reason. Glancing at documents or hearing dictum on great innovators like Leonardo da Vinci, neglect the unwritten moments of pacing and discontent. It is not unnatural to unearth rage by the very principle that rage exists. It is the wisest of us who embrace it.

As your blood pressure elevates, your brain becomes more oxygenated, neurons hasten in abundance and muscles tense and relieve. Succulent with this higher state, you are refined. Researchers at the University of British Columbia has found that aerobic exercise proliferates the size of the hippocampus (http://www.health.harvard.edu/blog/regu ... 1404097110). Managed tension in the conditions of making are no less than micro-exertions.

No longer rebuff your self from extinguishing that tool or fracturing that formed part, for the very defiance and resistance of this natural progression of making is knowingly unhealthy. Never first were you to shatter objects as an undertaking to achievement. The very endeavour it's self has become an employer's prescription. (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article ... nwind.html)

Maker-rage is inescapable. Apply it with confidence. The fearlessness that drove you to the state to create the unseen must be pure and absolute other wise your methodology becomes polluted with platitudes. Wrong is what chauffeurs reason to right.

Additional notable thanks to @RoboWarner for the RF tracking schematics and code.

Notation
Indeed, this should have implemented a WIFI module how ever at the moment I did not have a MKR1000 on premises, thus the resulted Uno and PC connected USB. Should a MKR1000 be made available, it would be altered to suit. In conclusion, pft.
