Rocket scientist Esben Rugbjerg is demonstrating his Arduino-based flight computer for an amateur rocket. The flight computer is controlling the igniter for parachute deployment during the descent. After the computer is armed it waits until it registers a large acceleration that corresponds to the launch. After 12 seconds it fires the igniter. The rocket is to be launched on October 3, 2010.
