Things I've Built

WREN

First 1U-PocketQub satellite in orbit

Autonomous Vehicle

Generates electricity from compressed air and solar cells, finds its track automatically - and has a model rocket launcher

Water Plasma Thruster

An experiment to demonstrate a concept of an electrolytic thruster.

Motion Analysis

Motion Analysis software for sport bikers.

Owl Tracking

A system to track an owl´s position during flight.

Laser Bench - Hardware

A laser bench for outdoor usage with high power lasers for an art event of Prof. Rainer Plum

KommuniKate Robot

This robot recognizes faces, follows people will the head (3 axes) and can understand and speak natural language. She has a connection to Wikipedia. It´s similar to Siri, but we developed it two years before Siri was released.

Thank you for the like :) This latest project you have here, is most fascinating.

This space test ... it seems to me if it works it's likely to cause the microsatellite to just start spinning like mad.  Which would be somewhat of a verification, but any thrust could still be due to interaction with Earth's magnetic field.  On the other hand I don't see how you could produce controllable motion without multiple thrusters.  How will that work ??

Described in the logs: There are permanent magnets aligning the sat to the Earth´s magnetic field. The expected thrust is lower than the aligning force which will result in a direction along the magnetic field lines. Hysteresis material will dampen rotation additionally.
