Things I've Built


Spinning array of magnets to hover over metal plates. Just like Hendo hoverboard. In early prototype phase.

Sump pump monitor

Arduino Mega2560 monitoring sump pump activity and emailing faults and status by visiting a webpage that activates an email script. Will add home power monitoring for blackouts and a water sensor for emergency status.

Bike light

Persistence of Vision light for a bike wheel using TI's TLC5940 LED drivers. The picture is a test image of an 8 bit Mario.

Reprap 3D printer

Prusa Mendel from scratch (purchased plastic parts from another RepRap).

Hey, thanks for liking the Fochica project and for your relevant comments. Working on something for this year's competition?

No, I'm working on spinning the NFC pressure sensor into a business. I have competed in a few startup competitions and have done pretty well, considering. I'm working on selling the product now.
By the way, I'm the same guy who commented on your instructables and offered to lay out a board when you're ready. Not sure if you had made that connection on your own yet.

LOLs. I didn't make the connection! The name felt familiar, but I assumed I saw it in an article at Hackaday at some point. Thanks for pointing that out.
I liked the NFC pressure sensor project. It is actually relevant to my project. One of the things I want to try at a later stage is build a seat sensor that is based on air pressure principle. Sort of like a cushion that the child sits on with an air pressure sensor inside. Didn't have the time to do that yet.
Good to hear that the project is going well for you. Once again I appreciate the offer to help with the board. Plan on taking the offer at a later time. If there is something I can help, LMK.
