CAD rendering of Rezz glasses enclosure designed for 3-D printing
Rezz Glasses


Isabelle Rezazadeh is an extremely talented DJ who is known by her unique animated LED glasses. The moment that I first saw these glasses, I knew that I needed to make some using neopixels! Fabrication and design for these glasses is ongoing.
An arduino controlled servo-driven laser cat toy.
Laser cat toy with randomized movements


A close friend of mine has the most adorable cat that needed both a workout, as this feline is plump, and psychological enrichment to keep her from getting bored. Therefore, I created this special cat toy - an arduino controlled laser toy with randomized x- and y- axis movement. I'm told that this cat gets frequent exercise chasing the uncatchable red dot!

Two eighth notes beamed together in front of a field of triangles formed by 1-D cellular automata
Structured 1-D cellular automata music


I've been fascinated with cellular automata for some time and I decided to take my cellular automata music to the logical next step. After placing some structured musical rules, in this case a blues bar, more melodic tunes can be generated.

Music generation using cellular automata


The repeating patterns found within cellular automata have a potential application in the world of generative music. Here I demonstrate a proof of concept using two well-known one dimensional rules.

Cargo/Video Drone


I was able to purchase four brushless model airplane propellers for an extremely low price and decided to use these powerful motors to construct a drone that could be used for filming video as well as lifting a payload. Up to 2.5kg can be safely lifted to 6 meters but more extreme testing has not been conducted.

MEG data driven music generation


Inspired by a conference poster on the neuroscience of music, I decided to take some of the MEG data that I was analyzing and use it to drive algorithmic music. This was my first foray into the world of doing unconventional things with data.
