SPOT Hudson Video
I managed to make a crude video recording of my extreme feedback from Continuous Integration using Hudson and Sun SPOTS. The video is kinda bad mostly because I'm not good at this kind of stuff, but it shows my computer screen on the Hudson dashboard showing a good build. All the Sun SPOTs sitting in front of the monitor are shining bright blue to match the build. As Hudson is building the project there is a lot of dead time, but towards the end of the video, you will see the build break and all the SPOTs give an indication by blinking red 5 times, then stabilizing on red. In the video, its kinda hard to distinguish what color the SPOT LEDs are because they are so bright, and the video camera can't decide what to focus on. However, believe me when I say the LEDs are very blue followed later by very red :). As I mentioned before each of our developers has one in a cube, and the SPOTS talk wireless. I put all the SPOTS in front of the same monitor for dramatic effect. I hope you enjoy. I'll be posting the code somewhere soon, so if you're interested stay tuned.
