Opentrons Platform Prototype

projects – Liquid-handling platform prototype, using HTML5 and NodeJS

I helped Opentrons this past year by prototyping their liquid handling software stack. It's been a great experience and I learned some lasting lessons. More ›

The Internet of Useless Things

useless-things – cultural expression and internet art in the connected home

To better explain why I want to make an Internet of Useless Things, I borrowed some words from a recent talk by Bruce Sterling. More ›

Panelling Arduino Minis

hardware – 10 diy arduinos on one copper plate

I made a panel of 10 Arduino Pro Mini clones I designed. Their design was constrained by my DIY process, and the boards turned out great with the new soldermask process. More ›

hardware – A Web Interface for Milling PCBs on the Roland-Modela

The Roland-Modela is a discontinued, but well made micro-milling machine. It's software package is terrible, so I made a simple interface for milling PCBs, and designed a new bed from delrin. More ›
