A Suggested Project For Vault-Co Readers

(Links to a small PDF file)

Something I have not had the time for myself but which would prove of limitless benefit to shelterists throughout the world would be research into converting these cheap, ubiquitous solar lights into different kinds of environmental sensors.

I have already had some success in extracting the boards and using them to power various weather sensing applications, but my designs have worked off of physical ethernet cables to I2C when what is really needed are optical signals using cheap affordable parts to send to a hub.

Anybody who knows any more about this subject or has links, please put them into the comments section.
