A Cooler Chair

The goal of my project is to build an active cooling system for a chair that is efficient in its energy use, customizable in terms of fan position, and one which is good at cooling the user. While it’s been a few years since I originally came up with the idea, I’m glad to have […]

Liquid Fueled Rocket Engine

I designed and casted a liquid fueled rocket engine out of copper. The fuel is liquid methanol and the oxidizer is gaseous oxygen. The first engine I am building will produce 25 pounds of thrust and will not explode. As time goes on I plan to build more capable engines and also discover easier ways […]

As a city biker I always was cautious and nervous of what was behind me on the streets and after initially thinking about bike safety I joined i2 and an idea came to me. So I researched online and found that most bicycle accidents and collision occur from the rear and that bike accidents have […]

Piezoelectric Shoes

The goal of our project is to allow us to charge a portable device while walking or running. Our piezoelectric shoes use the kinetic energy that you produce when you walk or run and turn it into electrical energy through the piezoelectric crystals in the base of the shoe. By using 14 crystals connected in […]

Raspberry Pi Sand Table (Phase 2)

Last year, I began construction of a project called the raspberry pi sand table. It is a project that creates designs in sand through the use of robotics (for more information on how it works, check out last years project page).  Unfortunately, I was unable to complete the project due to shipping delays as a […]
