It could be mistaken for a science fair project gone amok—a suitcase-sized water proof box stuffed with tubing, electronic wires, gauges and an LED display. To Whitman Miller, that's the beauty of it. Everything is easily available, relatively inexpensive and remarkably sophisticated. He needs that combination of qualities.
