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.

Projects

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.

Squirrel Feeder

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.

3D Printers

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.
