Turns a text message into digitally-sewn wisdom. Created with Raspberry Pi, FONA and openFrameworks. See a demo here
SMS Cross stitch
CNC Walnut, 3D-printed Plastic, Photon Microcontroller, LED, Lithium Battery Once an hour, a microcontroller checks to see if there are updates on the dronestre.am site. If there are, the unit glows for 8 hours continuously.
This is a prototype for my first “wearable” project. This word bubbleturns SMS messages into very visible accoutrements with the use of a high-contrast OLED character display. The object may invoke unexpected conversation or simply reveal an often hidden method of daily communication. The device can also act as an adaptive technology that allows for simple nonverbal communication. Alternatively the user can share the messaging number and wear whatever anyone decides to message (be it serious, funny or otherwise).
While running the knives spin at random intervals. This device can only start or stop when someone pushes the big red button in the center. Starting the machine is easy but stopping it can result in an injury.

This piece is to be placed in a dark corner or nook in a home. The preferred location would be one that is not immediately noticeable. To the unsuspecting viewer, it will appear as though potentially ominous red light is shinning through cracks somewhere in a living space.
Mission to Nowhere
2006 Acrylic, Digital Print, Wood, Custom Electronics
This is a wall hanging game that's VERY difficult to play.
In this "skee ball" style game, each successful roll results in the progression of a video depicting the game's creator getting punched. The goal is to beat down the game's creator by getting eight balls into the ramp holes before the timer runs out. The game is a comment on the increasingly graphic nature of video games.
The Sleepyboard is an Arduino-ready prototyping board that makes it easy to build your own Arduino with a boot loaded ATmega and a few other components. It is, however, not IC specific meaning you can use it to prototype many different circuits. It's also the perfect size for an Arduino shield (see details).
