Winter is tough in Switzerland. What could be better than to escape the ground fog and go up the sunny side?

Inversion: Haggenegg and Stockhütte


Inversion‘ is an interesting meteorology phenomena: normally the air temperature gets colder the higher you get up in the mountains. With the inversion situation it is the other way round: cold air in the lower areas building a sea of fog, and warmer air and sunshine up above. Perfect for a hike, so sharing pictures from last weekend.

The first one is from the Haggenegg in Canton Schwyz, with the view to the South:

Central Switzerland in Timelapse

Video


The past weeks have been extremely busy with the new semester started. As a result, no time for new posts on this blog for nearly three weeks :-(.

Until my projects-in-progress about MQTT, Time-of-Flight sensors, LoRa (long range) wireless networking and a cool robotics project are ready, here is something to share with you all: a cool time-lapse video of my home and work area, created by Pirmin Henseler: 2 years, 30’000 pictures, 2 broken cameras, and the result is amazing:

It reminds me again how beautiful the world is.

Happy Timelapsing 🙂

Hiking up to the Rigi Hochflue


Just nearby where I live I have a mountain peak with a beautiful panorama view. So I’ll take you on virtual tour with high-resolution pictures to the Rigi Hochflue (1998 m).

The tour starts from the Gätterli summit (1699 m) in the morning:

Daylight beating my Jetlag


Air travel and especially across many time zones is no fun. I returned from the NXP FTF conference in Austin, Texas. Travelling to the west works pretty good, but travelling east is a beast.

My best tip beating timezone tiredness is to get out and tank as much sunlight as I can after. It has been a beautiful day today, I got a lot of sunlight, so here is a share of that:
