This is a joint blog post with my food blog. A trip through St. Louis gave me a chance to catch up with my former student Jason Fritts, who is now a professor at St. Louis University. Jason is well known for his work in multimedia computing and is the main organizer of the MediaBench benchmark series. Over pizza he told me about his amazing project to builod accelerometers into a flycasting rod. I think he said that the tip hits 30-40 Gs. Very cool stuff.
