First field research

At the past days I’ve been navigating and analyzing possibilities for the project. At first I was a little apprehensive - as it took a good amount of time to actually find some important information. However, once I’ve been given a light at the Instructables forum post, I’ve managed to navigate and find some pretty interesting stuff that I’m sure will come handy at the following steps of the project. I’m finally feeling I’m on track, since I’ve found practically various types of solution for what I’m planning to do!
