Quick demo of my new scope. I finally broke down and got one to help with an audio visualizer project I’m working on.
Awhile back my great aunt asked me for some resources on learning about computers. I’d thought I’d upload the conversation to save it for posterity.
As a decorative project for the apartment, Maria and I made a mobile of eyeballs.
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.
