  • The Modern World Video Game.

    This is an art piece that I did for a show in Spokane. When the Riverspeak people were talking about this show I had planned to work on a pendulum design that I have been toying with for some time.. As a secondary piece I wanted to use this beautiful 50s television that is in […]

  • Running Paul Stoffregons’s teensy_serial arduino core on DFU based chips.

    With a lot of my projects I have done my prototyping with Paul Stoffregon’s Teensy series of boards before moving them onto their own codebases. On those occasions where the “prototype was all I needed” I would compile the code using the teensyduino and then manually load the .hex file onto the target. As I […]
