I've designed a simple musical robot that plays 20 chromatic deskbells that plays anything from algorithmic compositions and improvisations to pop songs. Using Arduino, 3D printed and off the shelf components.
Make a muscle for a wind-powered robot. A wind rotor made from two disposable cups twists up a loop of high-tech fishing line to make it powerfully contract. Uses hot-melt adhesives, wire bending, and knot tying.
I built my first "Segway" in my sophomore year. After I finished the prototype I found out that it had way much more Potential, So I added safety features to the device so it could assist the Disable and Elderly.

Home automation tailored to each individual, using RFID. Customizations for each family member include music, air freshener scent, lighting, and more! Completely open source, involving Arduino and Raspberry Pi.
Unmanned systems are a burgeoning technology with numerous humanitarian applications. At Maker Faire, I'm demonstrating the use of small unmanned aerial systems in search & rescue and precision agriculture.
Audio alchemists Burnkit2600 infuse elements of circuit-bending, analog wizardry and chip music into groovy gold. We'll be improvising, demoing our hand made instruments and having a blast - so will you!rnCome jam with us!rn
Skateboarders modify city spaces much like a hacker who modifies code in a computer program. In Skatehack, we demonstrate how skateboarding and hacking can be combined in a fun and exciting way using open source technologies.
