Here are some other old small projects. These are probably from my high school days. Some are from my university days. I’ve collected them all onto this one post when I moved my website.
Check out my Instructables account, I’ve won a lot of contests with big prizes.
Back in 2007 when smartphones were not popular yet, I managed to build this:
I built it to do Geocaching.
ADNS2610 Optical Mouse Sensor
Here it the sensor sending raw image data through USB. Nothing fancy, I just thought it was cool that you can get raw image data.
Wii Nunchuk Projects
These extremely simple USB projects take me only a few hours to do, because of my expertise in Wii accessories and USB.
These were all made in around 2007 and 2008 while I was in high school
Me being the Electrical Lead on the UW Mars Rover Team
Echo (Sumo Wrestler)
This fella won the “Judges Award” at UW, which means we didn’t win the wrestling but the judges liked our design the best.
Charlie Line Following (at the Canadian National Robot Games 2007)
Charlie Remotely Controlled (my first radio controlled project)
Charlie Controlled using Wii Nunchuk
This was pretty cool at the time, it made it on to Engadget or something.
My first robot (2007), a simple light chasing and obstacle avoiding robot, completely built from scratch. Controlled by a PIC microcontroller.
