    If you were going to decouple this, wouldn’t you want the capacitor at the DS18B20 end of the thing, instead of 6 feet away?

    first?

    I made a DS18B20 sensor waterproof using Sugru. Looks like my little invention is now redundant :(

    IMO this area is still very much in its infancy. There don’t seem to be a whole lot of “useful” things you can do with it yet. You could argue that a lot of the stuff here isn’t useful, but you get to do it in the privacy of your own home. Clothes are made to be worn, and you wouldn’t spend hours or days jazzing up an item of clothing just to wear it in your house. But then most people would feel self concious wearing it to the mall. So what do you do with it?
    I’m looking forward to when there become some genuine uses - perhaps some kind of smart fabric which changes its structure depending on your skin temperature, or some kind of stress sensor in a skintight gym top, which will be able to tell how much effort you’re putting in to your weights routine.
    And of course, the jacket from Back to the Future 2 which dries itself ;)

No public wish lists :(
