Rollout of the 1.2-Protoype at the Night of Science in Zurich
Everything was on an extremely tight schedule for the preparation of the Night of Science. After pulling some long, long evenings, we finished the new prototype literally in the very last minute. Some of the final assemblies were actually done in the exhibition tent. The great effort of the students was rewarded by an extremely open and interested crowd that was drawn in large numbers to our booth.
The only drawback was a small error in the NI-software. It sometimes caused misinterpretations of the sensor signals and made demonstrations impossible. Still, we got good feedback and the new prototype was a real highlight in the exhibition; especially for the younger visitors.
