Raspberry Pi Blocks for Maker FaireTuesday, 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
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 ClockFriday, 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.
If you’re interested, take a look.

Tesla ValveTuesday, May 2nd, 2017
Been meaning to make a Tesla Valve for a long time. It still amazes me that this works with no moving parts.
The Sleeping MachineTuesday, May 2nd, 2017
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 21Wednesday, February 15th, 2017
Once again Donald Bell has been kind enough to mention a project of mine in his weekly Maker Update.
Flick Face is a kinetic “sketch” that is part of my 100 Days of Making, a collection of movement experiments and ideas.
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.
