I'll be posting build logs of my more complete projects here.

4G Earth Rover

I built this durring an Internet of Things Hackathon. It's an RC car with a video camera that can be controlled over the 4G network. I stayed up for 30 hours straight to get it working.

FPV Explorer

This is my site from when I was selling drones. The demo video's pretty awesome. Just please don't try to order anything. The buy buttons might still work.

HDD Self-Destruction: Attempt 3

My most recent self-destruct rig.

I wanted to use the rest of my thermite for this one (it was starting to get pretty oxidized) so I cut my limited-collateral-damage requirement and went all out with a thermite volume about 20 times greater than my initial attempt.

Linear Pilot Valve Air Cannon

My first [successfull] attempt at building a custom pilot valve. Similar to my first "compact" air cannon, the LAW I but 6" shorter and 30% lighter courtesty of the internal valve.

Air Cannon Booby Trap

A trip wire triggered air cannon I built when I was a lot younger. (I just found it in my basement)

Elegant? No. Cool? YES.
