Hi, my name is Robert, you'll probably find me in the electronics area or playing with a 3D printer but I like to get involved with most things.

Areas of Interest
These are some of my interests and areas of expertise, feel free to ask me about them.
- Java (Spring Framework, Hibernate, Maven)
- Big Data Technologies (would love to learn more)
- Agile Methodology
- PCB Design (Eagle)
- PCB Etching
- 3D Printing
- I have 2.5 3D printers and it might be getting out of hand.
- Nothing serious, I cycle about 8km a day to get to and from the station for work
- I have a hybrid bike and would be interested in learning more about repair and maintenance
Floppy Drive Orchestra
I noticed there was quite a surplus of old floppy disk drives lying around the space so I decided to put them to good use. After seeing various versions of floppy drive music on YouTube I decided to create my own. Below is a video of mine in action playing Daft Punk's Aerodynamic. I took it along to the UK Maker Faire 2013 in Newcastle and it prove quite popular.
I found some plans for a squirrel feeder online and decided to build one.
Home heating control and temperature monitor
Work in progress, a Raspberry Pi with a custom Arduino expansion board that can read from 5 Dallas DS18B20 sensors and turn on the heating via a relay.
Ultimaker (Printer #3)
eMaker Huxley (Printer #2)
This is #20 in the original Indiegogo project and I started working on it in August 2011. It's not far off completion but I haven't had the time to finish it yet.
MakerBot Thing-O-Matic (Printer #1)
Needs some TLC to get it back up and running reliably.
It printed a full set of RepRap Wallace parts in red ABS without too much trouble so it's quite a capable printer. These set of parts were for a member of Birmingham Hackapace (fizzPOP), I'm not sure if it's been completed yet.
