Little Big Engineers present 'Return of the Dragon'

This semester long project was the effort of five creative engineers that wanted to learn more about the Location Based Entertainment design pipeline. Together, we created the magical world of Eigenrac and its story of mages, elemental mages, and dragons.

Music Technology Minor Capstone Project

For my capstone project, I used data from a hand tracking camera in a synthesizer I coded with Max MSP. With the camera, I was able to control the sound of my synthesizer with hand motion and a MIDI controller.

Robotics Project

During my final semester at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, I studied robotics and the mathematics behind it. For the class' final project, my team designed a robot inspired by “Useless Robots” with several degrees of freedom in order to study complex kinematics in relation to simple tasks. The robot used an Arduino microcontroller and servo motors that were programmed with MATLAB.
