About Me[edit]

Name: Alex

Skill Set: Web App Programming (PHP, Rails)

Things to learn: basic circuits, interactive hardware, better sewing techniques

Current Projects[edit]

Party Bot[edit]

Goal: A mobile suit with a high powered sound system, interactive LEDs, and a way to sync music across multiple bots.

Current status: A first attempt works, but many elements can be vastly improved upon.

Things to work out:

  1. Create a new set of shoulder/chest armor with integrated wiring, and space for speakers
  2. Create a custom battery pack to evenly distribute weight throughout the chest armor
  3. Figure out how to use raspberry pi to set up a mesh network to sync sound on an ad-hoc network (currently using fm transmitter)
  4. User arduino to control interactive LED lights - and come up with a better way to mount lights
