Remember the HamsterTracker™-Temperature-Controled-Proximity-Sensor?
( See, day 81, september 17th below )
Here's the not so pretty, version I, of the proximity sensor. - HamsterTracker™-Geek Dept.
Here's the latest build,
using aluminimum foil,
we're trying to direct the temperatures to the sensor.
We also redesigned it so the sensor will be the other side up,
Please note the 'NASA' like look of sensor - HamsterTracker™-Geek Dept.

Right photo: Note the sensor being upside down in this design. - HamsterTracker™-Geek Dept.
Version II of the sensor! (the neat version). - HamsterTracker™-Geek Dept.
Then, let there be Software:
Without going into details on how it's developed,
here are some screenshots of a software module,
which will be incorporated in the HamsterTracker™-server software,
in the near future:
The software reads all three sensors,
displaying measured temperature,
as well as the trend (going up/down, or staying the same). - HamsterTracker™-Geek Dept.
[ The second temperature-sensor was held in hand while grabbing this screenshot ]
After some modifications on the HamsterTracker™-iButton-server,
the system was Hot-Plugable,
meaning, that removing a sensor, while the system is running,
doesn't disturb it:
These are REAL measurements,
while Lucy was sleeping...
26 ° C, (five degrees (Celcius) more than the surroundings! - HamsterTracker™-Geek Dept.
A few minutes and measurements later, after hooking up the sensor again,
it was still runnin' !!! - HamsterTracker™-Geek Dept.
Looks like the HamsterTracker™-Temperature-Controlled-Proximity-Sensor, is doin' it's thing!!
