As a software engineer, I spend a rather large amount of time coding or at least thinking about code at work. So much in fact, that I'm having some difficulty focusing on personal coding projects in my spare time.
For that reason, I started to realize that doing nothing but software projects might not be a terribly good idea. At best, I would probably get tired of all the software I would have to manage nad at worst I would likely burn myself out. To that end, I decided it was about time to do a real hardware project instead and finally get at least moderately proficient with a soldering iron.
But what kind of project should I do then?
