- Aeroscope Wireless Oscilloscope (2015-2017)
It started off as a personal project with my longtime friend and former Agilent/Keysight colleague Alex Lee. We made a pen-sized wireless oscilloscope probe that connects to a tablet or phone and eventually turned it into a company.
- FPGA Breakout Game (2013)
I created a breakout game on an Altera Cyclone IV FPGA using Verilog.
- Autonomous Soccer Robot (2006)
I helped created an autonomous soccer playing robot as part of a graduate mobile robotics class. A computer downloaded images from an overhead webcam, processed them, and sent instructions to the robot over WiFi.
- Ultra Wide Band EKG Transmitter/Receiver (2006)
I made an ultra wideband transmitter and receiver to transmit EKG data from a patient and output it to a heart monitor. This was a very intensive project that involved building a radio from the ground up.
- Low Noise VHF Amplifier (2006)
I made a low noise amplifier for MRI applications to amplify signals at 64 MHz.
- Mini-Baja Speedometer/Odometer (2004-2005)
This was the first embedded project I did by myself. It also was the first circuit board that I designed. The board displayed speed and distance information to the LCD display of an off-road race car. I enjoyed helping to build the car as well.
- Roman Style Workbench (2017)
Small woodworking bench that is ideal for aparments or other small dwellings. The major distinguishing feature is that you sit on it to work.
- Solid-Body Electric Guitar (2001-2002)
Dreaming of having an electric guitar, but not being able to afford one, I decided to build my own. If you just count materials cost, it was cheaper, but if you factor in labor...
It was all worth it in the end.
- Spokeshave (~2001)
A spokeshave is a woodworking tool that is like a cross between a plane and a drawknife. It was used to make wagon spokes in days past. I used my forge to harden some O-1 steel for the blade and carved the handle body from maple. Instead of carving spokes, I used this to carve my guitar neck.
- Various Forges (~2000)
I made several forges for heat-treating, blacksmithing, and melting aluminium.
