Silhouette Box

I've wanted to build a skyline silhouette project for a while now, and I got to get my hands dirty and use a popular WS2812B RGB LED as well. I got to test out my Dremel skills for cutting and creating sharp edges for the city scene too. First project to be powered by batteries (Li-Ion), so low power consumption with high processing power was a unique challenge.

PediPaws Conversion

This project was create to help with pet nails. We had a full family of dogs (3 total) and all of them had healthy nails that needed constant care. We went through all kinds of batteries to keep the nail trimmer going at a good speed, and that was getting costly, and rechargeable batteries were not going to be the answer because of the current pull being so high.

Parking Pass

This project has been made, and re-made and re-made again, but it's a project thats useful in any household, just the kind of projects I like to do. It uses a Ping))) Ultra-sonic Range Finder and controls a small bank of LEDS to indicate parking placement. Simple Red, Yellow, Green reference that everyone is familiar with.

Garage Radio

This project was born out of necessity, I needed a radio in the garage and wanted to use the speakers my had, and run everything off one power supply. There is 3 spots for saved stations, and basic scan and volume operation.

Retro Pie

I couldn't wait to get started on this project once I found it online. I had been working on programming, I used a PIR sensor and triggered a terminal window result, very basic. I found an article on www.howtogeek.com and my Pi would never be the same. I quickly found many ROM sites and started testing on each console.
