So this summer I went to Alaska:
|Deploying the Glider from a fishing trawler.|
I also helped the (almost?) creation of an electric go-kart
|Group Photo of the last day of the workshop|
|Learning about the Machine Shop|
I built a SegBoard
|Testing the frame...|
I built a self balancing electric skateboard as a procrastination technique from studying for finals. I based the electronics off an Instructable by XenonJohn, but did the mechanical system myself. It utilized a 5 DOF IMU unit from Sparkfun, homebuilt A124 battery pack, electric scooter motors and an arduino as a controller.
It took a little bit of practice to get used to riding it.
I also worked on my first project for the MIT Motorsports team at the end of last semester. I had approximately three days to build a shift indicator from scratch before the final competition. Dario and Erik did the programming, while I did the hardware in a hectic 30 or so hours.The goal was for an embedded microcontroller to read a potentiometer mounted to the shifter and display the current gear on an LCD screen.
It was a pretty jam packed summer. I also worked at the Lahontan Water Quality Control Board doing some data analysis, but I still fit in some fun
|Lake Tahoe-Home, Sweet, Home|
|Fishing at Blue Lakes with the parents|
|Diving at Catalina Island|
But wait, there's more!
a sneak peek of the next round of projects:
|RC Bomber Plane|
|Renovations for the Floor Lounge-New brackets and a working Soda Machine|
That's it for now!
