Tensegrity!

2013.December.17

Steve found some surgical tubing in the rummage pile in the basement, so tonight during Project Night, he cut up some 2x2s, made loops of the tubing, and with a lot of effort and bruised knuckles, ended up with this example of tensegrity: Pretty amazing! In other news, don’t forget the Raspberry Pi meetup at […]

Raspberry Pi and SCRoW

2013.August.1

I saw a video on how to turn a Raspberry Pi into a laptop of sorts. It sounded neat, so I bought an Atrix 4G dock and the requisite cables. Last night, Danny helped me splice the cables together per the video, and mirabile dictu, it worked! Mark your calendar: In three weeks, Rob Bishop […]

Door Lock Prototype Test

2013.July.28

With the help of Steve Devine, I cobbled together a proof-of-concept door lock (or more precisely, a doorknob-turner). It’s a small step toward a “keyless” entry system. As you can see, it works, but it’s pretty darn Rube Goldbergy. If you have some ideas for improving it, leave a comment or come to SCRoW Wednesday […]
