Dear Electronics Colleague:

I am excited to have my first Kickstarter campaign launched this month. I invite your feedback.(Now that I have experience in what this process looks like- if you have a product idea....we are always looking to help "productize" ideas) 

Last month my wife and I had the opportunity to see Pearl Jam; one of the pre-eminent rock bands. The show was great lasting 3 1/2 hours and was packed full of surprises.

Kickstarter Campaign "Kicked" Off

Bob Wettermann of BEST along with his business partner, Yury Milgram, have developed a programmable thermostat app that "talks" to a controller that will hold a set point temperature. The controller has an input sensor that indicates the current temperature. The controller turns a temperature source like a room heater, aquarium tank or germination system heater on and off  based on this measured temperature.
