HeckleBot prototype. A device that allows audiences to provide feedback to speakers using wireless technology to tie into an open chat line (IRC, Internet Relay Chat, if you must know).
The hardware consists of an embedded uClinux device and a programmable LED sign. All the software runs on the embedded uClinux device and boots automatically out of flash. Once configured, there is no user action required to activate Hecklebot. Simply plug it into an Ethernet port and turn it on!
