I have a company which is working on a new kind of WiFi router. It's AMAZING! Already, the prototype is chock-full of rocket science. We estimate something like 7 world-firsts are in there. It's so much IP, that we'll probably have to break it up into several products.
Anyhow, the prototype is a pile of parts and wires, while we do the software development. I usually have it laid out on a corner of our huge dining table, in a somewhat tidy fashion. Unfortunately, we had last-minute dinner guests. I swept up the entire lab setup, and put the tangled ball under the table.
Dinner was great. Vivi can't yet eat our solid food, but she decided to help rewire our network cables, just like mommy.
