Who I am

I am an electrical engineer that has an avid passion for tinkering with circuits. Pretty much anything electronics related will charge my capacitor. Anything from building circuits from design to fab, to disassembling, reverse engineering and sometimes destroying electronics gets me going.

I also love outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, offroading or any sort of board sport, but I admit I have not had enough time to pursue many of these passions.

Why I'm on

I joined Hackaday Projects because I like the prospect of having a strong environment for the community to collaborate on projects. I hope to start posting my projects here to contribute content to the open source community.

would this work as a tracking device in a contained area? For example, take your child to the Mall, put a wrist band on the child that transmits. If the mall were outfitted with the tracking system, then you might not ever have a truly lost child again.
