Tonight, by popular demand – “Ask an engineer” 10pm ET with special guest Amanda “w0z” Wozniak. w0z was on a previous show (our most info-packed one so far) – and she designed the MONOCHRON clock enclosure. W0z is a staff Electrical Engineer at Wyss Institute and formerly an applications Engineer at Analog Devices. This will be a great show. Previous video here (thanks George).

Pictured above, W0z’s suitcase – when she visits us she brings a toothbrush and a suitcase full of electronics! Pictured below, one of W0z’s drawings for the MONOCHRON.

  1. Shes gotta be a lot of fun going through airport security. Uhm, Miss, why do you have a suitcase full of electronic components?

  2. Yay, assembled MintyBoost Plus! This will be a great chat.
