You've found me, have a look
around and see what I'm about.
This is where I'm going to put pictures of projects that I think look cool, but were not significant enough for a whole page to themselves.
Sin City Scenic built several pieces including the puppet rack for "Puppet Up! - Uncensored". I was deeply involved in a variety of disciplines including welding, fabrication, project management, and the lighting elements. Not pictured are a few custom DMX controlled LED fixtures built to help the live video part of the production.
Promotional 8' x 8' photo op's built for the Electric Daisy Carnival, a 3 day outdoor music festival in Las Vegas.
Because of the nature of the show I can't go into details, but I was a part of Sin City Scenic's work to help in the creation of "Mat Franco - Magic Reinvented Nightly" and most of the things I had a hand in can be seen in this promotional video for the show.
I assembled my own custom Ergodox style split keyboard to make typing at my desktop more comfortable. The layout took a bit of time to get used to, but after a bit the blank keycaps haven't bothered me.
I was the primary fabricator and designer for this saw box gag for a short term parody of a magic show. When the inner box is up it must support a person. Then it flips down to this position safely and the person jumps out. Lots and lots of little details had to be managed to make this operate in a consistent, predictable, and safe manner.
EL wire embedded in the stage stairs for Magic Mike Live to ensure performer and guest safety during the show. A channel is hand routed in each stair tread and the wire is glued in place with a clear glue that also acts as a diffuser for the light. The glue is level with the top of the tread so there is no trip hazard.
At the Hackaday Superconference they have a badge hacking competition. The 2017 badge included a camera so I wanted to build a one line histogram shield. My idea was to use the PSOC 4 FPGA to sniff the SPI bus for the color information for each pixel and to average them and then turn on the RGB LEDs to match the level of the color average. I was able to expose the SPI bus and get the PSOC 4 to read it, but didn't have enough time to get the GPIO driving the LEDs to work. Maybe I'll manage my time better next year.
