A trip to the hardware store
April 18, 2011
I became an Engineer because I wanted to build stuff. I wasn’t too picky about what I made as long as it was a design I could be proud of. (I took Chemistry because I wanted to blow things up but that is another story)
I went to home depot to buy a 10 oz caulking gun. Now this was designed be someone who cared. On the trigger there is a built in tip cutter and there is also built in seal punch. Now this is a tool I think I paid about two bucks for. It was apparent that someone wanted to build the perfect caulk gun. Someone spent some time trying to understand this application. Building the perfect caulk gun may not be a very lofty goal, but it was someone’s goal and he took it to near perfection. Now I am sure I will never sell this person a PSoC but I certainly would like him to know I respect his work.
