Besides organizing the Makerspace, John is involved in a wide range of projects. Here’s a few …
This is my electric skateboard, which can travel as fast as 20 mph. You can control it with an Android app and a bluetooth sensor. It really flies!!!
This is an autonomous obstacle-avoiding robot john build, using an Arduino and a couple of HC-SR04 distance sensors.
This is an LED bike helmet. It throws off a crazy amount of light, which is great for biking in the mornings and evenings from September to March. The LED strip is controlled by a microcontroller and changes colors, to ensure maximum visiblity.
AndI didn’t forget an LED product for those who are running or walking at night. It’s way better than your standard reflective belt.
This is a solar cellphone charger he created. He designed the PCB himself using Eagle. You can leave this on your dashboard while at work. When you’re out, you have more than enough juice to recharged your cellphone.
This is a small run of the PCBs he created for the mini FM Transmitter class we recently held.
John is also an avid gardener. In 2014, he had 30 tomato plants, 6 pepper plants, 6 egg plant plants, string beans, onions, radishes, potatoes, carrots, brussel sprouts, , zuchinni, cucumber, squash and 3 different kinds of Kale.
