Raspberry Pi Blocks for Maker Faire

Tuesday, November 14th, 2017

The Raspberry Pi Foundation put together a video of the “blocks” I built for them for Maker Faire a few months ago.

The project was a lot of fun and everybody was a delight to work with. Thanks Matt for yet another great collaboration.

Raspberry Pi Foundation’s Maker Faire “Blocks”

Sunday, September 24th, 2017

Untitled

I made the “blocks” that the Raspberry Pi Foundation used for this year’s Maker Faire in New York. Sort of a retro science fair kind of vibe. I had major deja vu making these, as a kid I used to hammer nails into blocks and wire up simple circuits. I’ve come full circle.

Thanks for the project Matt.

Magnet Clock

Friday, September 22nd, 2017

I built a project for the newly rebranded Bantam Tools. The Magnet Clock is a kinetic sculpture built using magnets, a clock mechanism, and some milled parts.

Milled Brass Spring

I recently milled this (compression?) spring out of 20 gauge brass. It was basically an experiment, I have no real use for it. It works surprisingly well and has that old-timey clockwork look.

Tesla Valve

Been meaning to make a Tesla Valve for a long time. It still amazes me that this works with no moving parts.

The Sleeping Machine

Untitled

The Sleeping Machine was one of my favorite experiments to come out of the 100 Days of Making class I took part in. It’s a simple crank mechanism made of laser cut acrylic, attached to a DC motor gear box.

Maker Project Lab, Maker Update 21

Wednesday, February 15th, 2017

Once again Donald Bell has been kind enough to mention a project of mine in his weekly Maker Update.

Untitled

Flick Face is a kinetic “sketch” that is part of my 100 Days of Making, a collection of movement experiments and ideas.

Flick Face

Day 37: Flick Face. Perf board, LEDs, coin cell battery, battery holder, resistors, hookup wire, and springs. I made some whisker switches using the springs from ball point pens I got at the bank. The circuit kind of looks like a face and you get the best results when you flick the board.

Vacuum Formed Project Enclosure

Untitled

Finally, finished an idea I’ve had kicking around for a little while. I vacuum formed some styrene over a stepper motor circuit board, to be a quick custom project enclosure.

Untitled

I formed it directly over the circuit board. After a little trimming and sanding, the cover fits great.

Cam Shaft

Just milled a cam shaft out of delrin. Been meaning to make this part for some time now.
