My good friend JimmyBobJohnnyBoy Karnes is the hardware equivalent of me. Give him a soldering iron, some design software, and a few days, and he comes up with something like this brilliant (literally and figuratively) omnidirectional startflash.
He brought it to Kitzbühel in stealth mode. Dropped it on the desk and said “hey, give this a try”.
Along with the RADAR speedometer on the video wall (see part 1), the Karnes startflashes have been the sensation of the 2009 Hahnenkamm.
