We get to have a whole lot of fun,
check out what we've been up to.

Cardiac Activity Monitor

For a little fun, we decided to tinker with cardiac monitoring and simple prototyping of wave morphology via common components.  After we finishing, we wanted to post our little project to share with the world… so if you’ve got a chipKIT lying around and some free time, see if you can…

Hovalin: 3D Printed Violin

These days, we can make virtually anything out of a few grams of PLA. However, it’s still fairly difficult to print full musical instruments (or even instrument parts) that produce high-quality sound comparable to the kind created by instruments manufactured in a more traditional manner. But that’s exactly what makers Kaitlyn…

The EggBot Challenge

THE EGGBOT CHALLENGE Following the tradition of cracking eggs in celebration of Easter in Greece with the game of tsougrisma (τσουγκρισμα in Greek) we decided to build an EggBot that could robotically draw intricate designs that we fielded from our client partners and staff.   So what’s an EggBot? It’s a…

Augmented Reality Sandbox

AUGMENTED REALITY SANDBOX For a fun project to spruce up our office and interact with our local STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) school programs, we decided to build our own Augmented Reality Sandbox.  Originally developed by researchers at UC Davis, the open source AR Sandbox lets people sculpt…

Robotic Bird Flight

ROBOTIC BIRD FLIGHT We’ve always been fascinated by the mechanics and properties of flapping-wing flight… watching birds soar gracefully above us brings out that childlike wish of gliding through clouds from high above. Seeing them fly is amazing, but it’s not that easy to build an ornithopter.   The first thing…

InMoov Leap Motion Control

INMOOV LEAP MOTION CONTROL To have a little more fun with our InMoov Robot we started to investigate immersion control via Leap Motion.  From a hardware perspective, the Leap Motion Controller is actually pretty darn simple. The heart of the device consists of two cameras and three infrared LEDs. These track…

Have a project in mind?

Some people think design means how it looks. But of course, if you dig deeper, it's really how it works.
