Internet of Graduation Caps

- Projects

During my last summer internship, a thought popped into my head. I realized that it wouldn’t be too hard to stick an LED matrix under my graduation cap, to have one that would be totally unique. Well, it turns out someone beat me to the punch, but I could still make one that was totally unique by stealing ideas from other places too. Reddit’s r/place was really cool. I figured I could recreate that on a 32x32 board.

Spring 2018 Semester-in-Review

- Projects

My last semester is over, which is pretty sad. I was pretty busy for most of it, so this is actually my very first blog post all semester; I didn’t even do a semester in review post for last semester, other than the “What I’ve Been Up To” post. I did finally finish my GameCube adapter for the front of my computer, though. So, I took A History of Computing, Ethics, CSE Service Projects, and Introduction to Droid Building, and I did undergraduate research.

Markup for note taking

- Projects

I’m a week into my senior year, and I’ve gotten sick of using OneNote for note taking. As a linux user, I’m pretty much limited to the web interface or WINE, and I’d really prefer neither.

Progress on a GameCube adapter for ozai

- Blog

I’m totally doing that GameCube controller adapter in my 5.25” drive bay thing. I’m pretty close to done with the 3D model, and I am currently looking into 3D printing it. I also got some COTS parts to help me. I fully expect to be done this soon, like, this week soon.

Wheel in the Sky

- Projects

Despite the delay, I am still working on my AI/robot game thing. A while ago I added what I said would be my next steps, but never posted about it. So I’m doing that now.

Why build a PC and not buy one?

- Blog

Many people build their own PCs. Many of them do it because it can be cheaper, and many do it to have something completely custom for themselves. For me, it was a little of A, and a little of B. Despite having chosen the parts myself, there is a chance someone has a build just like mine - and if you only go by appearances, my build isn’t that unique. I have to fix that.
