Duane's Fan Controller Article Published

About two years ago I went to the awesome Maker Faire in silicon valley to promote Make Projects: Small Form Factor PCs. While there I mentioned to my editor, Brian, that I built something with the Make Controller. Brian said I should write it up for Make Magazine and introduced me to Mark Frauenfelder, editor of the magazine and of the Boing Boing Blog. (swoon...)

This week the article finally came out in print! The project uses a micro-controller, temperature sensor, motor, and some gears to automatically adjust the speed of an exhaust fan so that the room temperature stays constant.
