  • Go-Kart Revival: Part I
    So about that go-kart I was building...Continuing where I left off, I needed to wire up the motor controllers with the motor, throttle, and mains (power).

  • I'm a Beardy-Weirdy?
    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). For some reason, I always associated analog people with old engineers probably because I once saw a picture of Bob Pease and assumed all analog-ers looked like this."My fa...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Electric Razor: Construction
    So I kind of never made a post on the machining and construction of the rest of the scooter (other than the motor), even though it came (chronologically) before the motor testing. Instead of making a bunch of separate posts, I am just going to dump it all here in one post. The scooter body […]...

  • Chibi-Mikuvan: Detroit Recap and The Conclusion
    I have the worst go-kart hangover ever. In the end, the reversing module, spare parts, and electrical system refactor didn’t happen, so I basically went down to the race with Chibi-Mikuvan in its late Wednesday condition. However, all the sciencing and preparation did pay off: Chibi-Mikuvan wo...
