Radio Hats, Audio-Reactive Artifacts & 4-Bit Computers, Oh My!

I'm a firm believer that the best way to learn anything is to have a fun hobby project that forces you to "peak under the hood" to really understand how things work. In this unrestrained extravaganza of a presentation, we will cover (and uncover) topics ranging from 1949 Man from Mars Radio Hats to the creation of audaciously awesome audio-reactive artifacts to the construction of a 4-bit computer from the ground up. Along the way, we will undertake unconventional investigations into issues like mitigating metastability and switch bounce/debounce. In short, we will leap from topic to topic with the agility of young mountain goats, so members of the audience are advised to dress appropriately.
