Back in January we checked in with Mat Smith on the progress of his home brew control panel.
The PoE unit marries a display, hard buttons, rotary controller, Arduino Mega, W5100 Ethernet Controller, his own PCB and customer water jet cut stainless steel faceplates, all in a 47mm UK back box.
The UI looks great and the entire project is a testament to Mat’s’ ingenuity as well as the amazing 21st century technologies that enable an individual to be able to create such a powerful system.
Mat is currently considering launching his own Kickstarter project to help simplify construction, reduce costs and bring his controller to the masses. Listen out for his appeal at the end of the video and If you think you can help with the project then get in touch on the link below.
