It’s drawing to a close, check out my MAS.863 How to Make (almost) Anything class wrap up/ final project.
The Anduino is a pretty streightforward clone of a Sparkfun Arduino Pro Mini and Ed Baafi’s Fabkit/Fabduino. Just as Ed did, since there is no 8/16Mhz oscillator in the fab inventory, I used the internal oscillator. This is an 8M oscillator that fits on this board. I felt compelled to put together an Arduino clone […]
This week, with help from Alex Olwal and Julia Ma, I finally managed to scratch a project itch that has been lingering since the spring. The installation uses crowd sourcing to actively build a tangible visualization of attendee demographics. A world map covered by transparent LEGO baseplates stands at a conference, and bowls of transparent […]
I revisited the tools I previously put together to process EagleCAD files for manufacture. I extended my export tools to generate all the gerbers required for most major board houses (like Advanced Circuits) and PNGs required for Fab modules (used by the Media Lab’s Modella). As icing on the cake, I also wrote a python […]
This semester, I’ve been fortunate enough to take Neil Gershenfeld’s How to Make (Almost) Anything. For one of the first assignments, we’ve been tasked with fabbing (routing on the modella and stuffing) Neil’s FabISP which is based on David Mellis’s FabISP which is based on Limor’s USBTinyISP which is based on Dick Streefland’s USBTiny. I […]
