Ultramarathoning, Round II

The new Maraduino

You may remember that around this time last year our friend Ande Gregson spent six days running one hundred fifty miles across the Sahara Desert as part of the annual Marathon des Sables race. Well, he did it again this year with a new and improved version of his Marathon des Sables Gadget, the Maraduino. Using an Arduino Yún, Temboo’s Twilio Choreos, and a phone that he carried with him in the desert, he kept his supporters at home abreast of his progress whenever he had phone signal. We’re already looking forward to seeing what next year’s edition of the gadget can do!
