What I want to do before the end of the summer

As this is a development blog, I figure that those reading would want to know what I want to do by the end of the summer.

First things first, I really want to finish my speaker system once I get home. As you may or may not be able to tell, I’m currently away from my desk and on vacation. The final parts for the speaker are waiting at my house as I type this, so once I get home on Saturday I hope to finish the speakers either that night or at least the next day. Expect a higher-quality video / post about that project as I had help making it so I was able to get some really cool “making of footage” so the video should be a little better quality.

I also want to get a Raspberry Pi and Arduino board talking over an xbee network. Why I want to do this I’m not sure, but this seems like something it may be useful to learn how to do, so I’ll probably come up with some sort of dummy project to demo that technology. I wonder if I’ll use that serial deliminator script I wrote for the arduino so many months ago. That’s still probably my best work as a programmer.

I have a cool idea for a Raspberry Pi project. My mother takes a lot of photographs on her really nice DSLR camera. Much like most “normal” people she isn’t really keen on uploading photo after photo to an image hosting service. Because of this, she often either doesn’t share these photos with anybody, and takes separate photographs with her iPhone to share with others. I think I’m going to come up with some solution that has a very simple user interface (like 1 button and 2 LED’s) that can upload a whole SD card of photo’s to flickr and then email the user once it’s done.

Yeah! If there’s any stuff you want me to do / see let me know in the comments!
