Hi Kristina! Thanks for the skull and frontpage article, I really appreciate it! I've been very busy with the Kickstarter, but I do plan to post some more updates here (at the very least some of the testing modules & breakout boards I designed). How's your project working? Keeping you on your feet?
Hi Stefan! You're welcome! I wish I would have looked at your project sooner so that we could put more eyes on your Kickstarter. Please do keep updating your project here. I do hope that you continue to seek funding to bring Scrobby to market!
Thanks for asking--for some reason, it doesn't work as well powered through the wall USB as it does to the computer. I've put it away for awhile, but you've inspired me to drag it out again. :) I've been meaning to design away to either distribute the force sensing to a broader area or concentrate my weight to the tiny sensor pad. I built it for my desk chair at the office, which has some curves molded in that don't help matters much. Although really, it should be designed to work with any chair no matter the firmness or topography.
