  • Grasshopper3 Mobile Setup
    I've now got a complete mobile setup working for the Grasshopper3 camera that I started playing with last week, and I took it for a spin during the Freefly company barbecue. (It's Seattle, so barbecues are indoor events. And it's Freefly, so there are RC drift cars everywhere.)Since the camera commu...

    S'up guys,This was my year of being old and cranky (senior fall), so I decided to become a beardy-weirdy (analog-esque EE).

  • Reviving a Spaceball 4000 FLX
    I'm cleaning up my site, and I rediscovered a post I was working on a while ago but never published. I've abandoned this project, but I figured someone might be interested in my documentation I wrote while I was...
