Making a real difference
I never realised how much it can mean to make a difference to a persons life until I started working on this project. This 3D printed, robotic hand - based on the Hackberry project - has taken a new lease of life with lots of modification, and a specialised control system.
Droneflying inside. Why not!
When the Wellington MakerFaire announced it was looking for makers and creators to present what they do I thought 'why not!'. When I read there was interest in drones though, I had the cheeky idea of submitting a proposal to fly inside - and that's exactly what we did!
Adventures in game writing
Indoor drone racing and STEM outreach
Drone racing is huge, and sadly inaccessible to many people. We fly tiny drones indoors, and share knowledge through educational spots and demos. I blog about our endeavours and wrangle new and interesting places for us to fly.
Long Distance Cycling
A short blog I put together while I was training for the double-lap at the Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge. I ended up pulling out due to injury, but cycling is one of those things I keep going back to. Maybe next year?
Things I make and publish
Did you know Fusion 360 (think: Autocad) is free for personal projects and startups? Crazy! I use it, along with Blender, for messing around in 3D and making things to fix problems. I publish a lot of my things on Thingiverse, check 'em out!
