The Bell Rock Lighthouse segment of the "Seven Wonders of the Industrial World" inspired me to build a scale model of it. After hours of drafting, designing molds, casting concrete, 3D printing, graphite airbrushing, copper plaiting and painting here are the results.
I chose an aluminum chassis and installed steel treads made of #60 roller chain and sprockets. The drive train consists of two 12 volt automotive gear motors and a Sabretooth dual 25A motor driver from www.dimensionengineering.com/products/sabertooth2x25
A friend requested a solution to cold fingers on the job in the frigid sub zero conditions of the Albertan oil-sand fields. I eventually settled on a Teflon coated stainless steel braided heater element that could be stitched into an existing petroleum resistant product and powered by a Lipo battery pack. The user interface consists of an LED indicator and a magnetically activated reed switch for reliability and robustness.
The Lego Movie inspired me to design my own LEGO outfit made of cardboard for Halloween. The corrugate cardboard was CNC cut courtesy of the Great Little Box Company www.glbc.com
I developed an automated dispenser of commercial Nespresso pods. The mechanism is driven by a servo motor controlled via USB and triggered by a smart card reader that is authenticated via a central database.
A robot keychain in Japan and Bender from Futurama inspired me to create this keychain robot from basic metal parts.
The chameleon is a USB RGB LED status indicator typically used for the indication of firmware or software build status.
I brought together two partners and we developed a novel (at the time) smarphone lightbulb controller. We called it the LC1 and launched it on Kickstarter. The concept was well received however we cancelled our campaign early.
I made a pinata of Big Buck Bunny for Halloween and we filled it with candy and coffee pods. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Buck_Bunny
