Projects

I love to make projects, because it’s one of my favorite ways to challenge myself and learn new things. I try to document as much as possible in the creative process to help others along the way, so click through to see a more in-depth look at how I made each of these. 

VRBot – Intro

This project was my first solo dive into the wonderful world of virtual reality. I was trying to create a VR-remote-controlled robot that worked in real time. I wanted to be able to strap on the headset, and have live video be displayed in front of me with a control panel that physically controlled a robot in the real world.

AuburnHacks 2019

I participated in AuburnHacks 2019 in Auburn, Alabama. I had the pleasure of meeting new friends in Auburn and making a hack in 24 hours. My team made an app that alerts doctors to your medical conditions when you are incapacitated or can’t talk. We won first place in one of the major categories!

Glass Gun

For Instructable’s audio contest, I decided to see if I could make a compact device that shattered wine glasses with sound. I make it in less than a month and was really happy when I started breaking some glass!

Dubhacks 2018

I participated in Dubhacks 2018 in Seattle, Washington. We all got together at the University of Washington for a 24-hour Hackathon. My team made a VR “Mind Palace“ simulation that dynamically updates based on input text you feed it. We won three challenges, including the overall data track challenge!

HackGSU Fall 2018

At GSU’s fall hackathon I teamed up with some web developers to create “Crashed and Incapacitated“ or CANDI for short. A real-time autonomous automobile crash logging and emergency response notification system.

XBuild18

I attended the XBuild 2018 Hackathon in Boulder, Colorado. My team worked on a specially controlled drone that was integrated with IBM’s watson and other dev tools.

Robot Hand

This project involved all sorts of things: 3D Printing, Circuit design, arduino coding, etc. Basically, I 3D printed a hand that, when wearing the glove, would mimic a human hand. I also created a library for the sensors I used so that way any future projects I used them for would be easier to implement.

BattleBot

I created a battle bot for the 2017 DragonCon Robot Battles competition. It was a 3lb pusher bot that got knocked out in the first round, but it was my first attempt at any sort of project, so I’m proud of it.

Racing Drone

I got hooked by the drone world after seeing some videos of professional racers online, and after that, I couldn’t stop thinking about it. So, I decided to buy some parts online and assemble myself a little drone. I also got myself a cheep little FPV setup so I could see out of it also.

AUV – 2017

I am currently a part of Kennesaw State University’s Autonomous Underwater Vehicle team. We compete in a competition every year in San Diego California called RoboSub. Teams from all over the world come and try to complete underwater challenges and objectives earning points along the way. I had a hand in all different parts of this project.

UNIQ Drone

I, along with a team of two other students, interned at a company called UNIQ Technologies in the summer of 2017. We were tasked with creating a heavy-lifting drone that could pressure wash power line insulators under its own power. We ended up with a drone that was about 6ft across and could pull quite a bit of water.
