Andy Leigh: Around the World on an Arduino

February 20, 2012

Andy Leigh wanted to row around the world from his bedroom. Why? To lose weight and to do some kind of project with the open source hardware Arduino. He chose rowing because it’s a low-impact activity that he can do with his injury. But manual tracking in a spreadsheet was too cumbersome. In the video below, Andy walks through his hardware hacking in fascinating detail, and reveals his route around the world, which he is plotting on a Google map as he goes. (Filmed by the London QS Show&Tell meetup group.)
