Things I've Built

LoRaWAN GPS bike tracker

A LoRaWAN GPS Bike tracker connected to The Things Network and embedded into a rear light. Battery powered and charged via the dynamo.

Apple accelerator 2000

A device to accelerate apples to 150km/h using propane/butane mix. For scientific purposes only. (Somehow my video on YouTube got blocked... oops)

CNC backpack strap camera mount

A camera mount that connects to your backpack strap. CNC machined from 8083 and POM.

Worst digital mirror

A digital mirror with 30x30 pixels in 256 shades of red.

GoPro camera dive case

Building a dive case for my GoPro. Just for the engineering challenge. CNC machined on my DIY CNC from PE.

2WD robot test platform

Force feedback servo motor

Adding force/position feedback to a standard model servo motor using the position-pin of the internal potentiometer.

Solid state anemometer

An anemometer with no moving parts using three load cells in a triangular configuration and a tubular wind vane.

4WD outdoor robot platform

A 4WD robot platform for testing motor drivers and a closed loop system.

Superheated steam rocket engine
