One more high voltage project from highschool. This is a really simple ion thruster setup called a “lifter”
Another classic, I actually modified this one over the course of a couple years making a super sketchy cordless phone controlled version.
Wow this is an old one. I’ve decided to go back and write up some of the first projects I did.
I wanted to do another electrical project that focused on aesthetics. While looking at thrift stores for material for another project I saw some pieces that inspired me. I decided to make a calculator that would light up flowers as a value was computed.
After have locked myself out of my apartment one too many times, I decided that running to make a keyless entry system. I’ve been looking for a project to use a Raspberry Pi in for awhile, and this seemed like a good fit.

I was able to get a quick proof of concept working with relatively little effort.
Over the holidays I wanted to come up with a simple project that could be somewhat streamlined for “mass production”. I’ve always liked working with clay and decided to make figurines with some circuitry embedded in them. Of course the circuit had to be functional , so I decided to go with a simple breathing LED controlled with a 555 timer.
My brother and I used to watch the anime Outlaw Star together as kids, so I decided to get him something based on the show as a gift this year. Being a relatively unpopular show that hasn’t been on the air in years, there was basically no merchandise available. So I decided to make my own. This is a clock made to look like the computer Gillium II from the show.
