Extreme feedback device – The Batman Lamp 31

Posted by Jens Jäger on April 20, 2010

In my current project my coworker Christoph an I decided to build our own eXtreme feedback device for our continious build. We started with the NET-PwrCtrl HOME a power outlet controlled over ethernet.

Then we looked for a fancy lamp. Bears and Lava lamps are already out there. So we looked for something different.

We came out with the idea to project the batman sign on our office ceiling. That was pretty straight forward. Christoph bought a bright led spot and cut out the batman sign of paperboard. Fixed it with some wire on the lamp and ready was our office batman projection.

We control the power outlet with a small Java program Christoph has written. The software PowerControl is available github. The PowerControl.jar is called from an ant target in our project cruisecontrol server when our build fails, and we have a fancy batman sign on our office ceiling that remembers us to fix the build.

    I tend not to write many responses, however
    after browsing a bunch of comments on Extreme feedback
    device – The Batman Lamp – jensjaeger.com. I do have some questions
    for you if it’s okay. Could it be just me or do some of these comments look as
    if they are left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting on additional social sites, I would like to keep up with
    everything fresh you have to post. Would you
    make a list of every one of all your social community pages
    like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
