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. I digress, what I am trying to tell you is we started and stopped more time than I… Continue reading Project Glass

Graphite … Oh, how I love it.

Hey guys, just wanted to check in and say hello! And let you know I am still here! Summer time around these parts is for R&D and other projects, so sometimes I run out of time to make a post. I was recently watching one of my most favorite channels on YouTube ElectroBoom! And stumbled on… Continue reading Graphite … Oh, how I love it.

Take Control, Join the Maker Movement, and Eat Healthy

In addition to geeking out over just about anything tech related, I also geek out over delicious food, especially locally grown organic food! I wouldn't go as far to say that  I am a foodie. In fact I am far from it. But I do (with the help from my wife) try to eat as… Continue reading Take Control, Join the Maker Movement, and Eat Healthy

RearVision

I have recently decided that I was going to run my 2008 Jeep Commander (Ya, it's awesome) into the ground! My wife and I love this thing, and have decided that we want to keep for a long as possible. With that in mind lets not forget I am a tech guy. Though I am… Continue reading RearVision

Get comfy… Continue reading 5 things I did wrong with my DaVinci Pro 1.0 (first print)

Two days ago I bit the bullet, I finally bought a 3D printer for my school! This is a pilot printer, a stepping stone in the right direction and it will arrive today!  I am hoping that this will spark interest amongst the community and open conversations about creating a Makerspace. What makes this printer… Continue reading XYZ DaVinci Pro 1.0

Brought to us by Evil Mad Scientist and Lindsay Wilson, the AxiDraw can practically write on any flat surface using essentially any type of pen or marker! This thing is amazing and makes any homemade project into a piece of art! Check it out for yourselves. https://vid.me/T81N

Clone Wars … It Begins

A lot of us love the Mac Pro redesign that came out a few years back... You know the one, the "Trash Can".  Yup, that's the one. The problem with this little powerhouse is that it is WAY too expensive. The base model starts at $2999... OUCH, that's little steep for some of us. Fortunately,… Continue reading Clone Wars … It Begins

Think Boards

By now most of us have heard of the company IdeaPaint. They are relatively new, but sling an old product. Or at least the idea of the an old product. They market White Boards, not just any white boards, but the kind you can paint on an entire wall! They are very cool, and very,… Continue reading Think Boards
