New 3D Printer on Campus

Project Glass

A few months back (over a year ago) a student and I decided we were going to make a "magic mirror". They have been all the rage lately on Reddit, GitHub, and a few other techie websites.

Ev3 Has Gone Hipster . . .

Well, it was only a matter of time before LEGO became the next thing devoured by the Hipster culture. But I did not expect it to be the forever amazing LEGO Mindstorms EV3. FastyTheFastCat is who you can blame for this. He programmed his EV3 to play a mean cover of Little Talks by Of Monsters… Continue reading Ev3 Has Gone Hipster . . .
