I am not a computer hacker yet, though working on it. I am however, a very experienced machinery hacker. I have mad fabrication skills that I would like to utilize to make great things and hopefully contribute to the lack of these skills at Noisebridge as there are many computer programmer types but that many people who can build shit out of metal, plastic, wood. I am hoping to put some energy into the dirty shop area using my knowledge I have acquired from the many years of working in welding and machine shops.

* DIY Thermal Imaging. I think thermal imaging is really fucking cool. I know that a micro-bolometer is the heart of these things but as of now are very expensive. A single point device is cheap however but only gives one pixel. I would like to use a series of these single point sensors arranged in an array and scan them in order to multiply the amount of pixels available for the image. I have been wanting to do this for some time but recently there is a guy on hack-a-day who did with one point and scanned it for a static image. I would like mine to scan fast enough to provide at least a low frame rate for real time use.

* New Vertical Wind Turbine design. I think vertical wind turbines are the shit but my design uses a slightly different concept than the traditional designs. Mine will use airfoils that change shape during operation to adjust the direction of lift on each rotor blade as it turns. I am hoping it will improve efficiency by maximizing the amount of time each rotor blade is actively producing lift. I have experimented with small mock-ups but would like to build a working prototype out of better material than cardboard, scrap metal parts, duct tape,and skateboard bearings.
