Video: NYC Soldering Championship
Since many robot makers are fond of a soldering iron, I thought I'd post this video here.
Produced by Spectrum's Josh Romero and Monica Heger. Some details:
IEEE Spectrum stopped by Ignite NYC, where Bre Pettis and the NYC Resistor hacker collective hosted a contest to see who had the fastest soldering iron in the city. The contestants all raced to build a TV-B-Gone kit, and the first to turn off the TV won.
