I kind of wish I had some humbling words for this moment. Here it goes.
I think for me, it’s really about curiosity. And helping to find ways to see and intuitively visualize the world around us, to help share that curiosity, and get folks excited about science.
With the excitement that comes from having developed a project from an idea over a bunch of years, and the hope that folks will find it as exciting as I do, today the Tricorder project website is officially live! Again I’d like to thank everyone who has helped out over the years, whether it be generously donating commercial/educational samples, in kind donations, or moral support — especially, in this last case, I’d like to thank my Dad.
I would very much like to put together a short video introducing the Tricorder project. My hope was to have it complete for the launch, but I still think it might take a few weeks — the star is a little under the weather from having the flu all of last week. I also can’t seem to find the battery charger for the first Tricorder. I know it’s around here somewhere!
Seriously though, I’m very happy with how the Tricorder website looks, and how rewarding it was to put it all together. With some luck, we’ll be able to make it a lot easier for folks (and especially children) to learn about their worlds.
If you’re visiting, please feel free to leave a comment letting me know what you think of the site, and if you find any broken links or anything!
