The ERGOnaut Mini: Our New Deep-Sea Diver

 

Those of you following the project will remember the ERGOnaut deep-sea diver pixel that we lost off the coast of Florida last November.  We realized that with all the technology we’ve developed lately (Arduinos, shields, and detector circuits) we could make a new ERGOnaut that is WAY smaller (and less expensive to build).  Matt C and his intern team is building a new ERGOnaut Mini using standard high-pressure pipe fittings, Simon’s tiny ERGOduino, and a compact battery to make a diver capable of a few thousand feet depth and weighing only ten pounds or so.
