Further research development

I was so proud of myself for getting my research to work yesterday using only the plastic lids of coffee cups. I happily showed my research result to people in the lab, and everybody liked it.

But then today I realized that I don’t actually need even the coffee cop lids. The whole thing works just fine even with virtual coffee cup lids. The physical parts are not really necessary.

I am not sure how I feel about this. On the one hand, it’s great to realize that there is a software-only solution. On the other hand, it was really fun to think I was able to do cutting edge research with cheap plastic coffee cup lids from our local take-out deli.

Oh well, at least the new technique will be eco-friendly.
