Let your geek shine.
Meet Landon Cox, proud father, SparkFun customer,
and developer of a novel timing system for speed
climbers that is both precise and easier on climbers’
hands. Using laser switches, hand-built enclosures,
and plenty of brutal tests by his speed climber
daughter, Landon debuted his timing system at
the USAC Nationals earlier this year.
Whether you’re searching for a breakout board,
or prototyping a climbing sensor to withstand
high-impact abuse, the tools are out there. Create
a project you’ll love, and let your geek shine too.
