Current Projects

  • Kitchen Zone, anyone? I'm the coordinator, now it just needs to be made to exist. Any help is appreciated.
  • So, new project: VPAC'ing. I've been appointed the Vice President of Activities and Classes. So, I'm making a call to arms for anybody who knows something that other people want to know. You don't need a, Ed.D. to teach a class, you just need to know how to do something and a smidge of enthusiasm about doing it.

Election 2019

  • 2/9/18 Conducted a beginner-level crochet class. Also, starting a Stitch 'N' Bitch for further crochet education/practice (and venting/gossiping). Knitters are also encouraged to attend. Events will be posted on the i3Detroit event calendar.
    • UPDATE: I've been scheduling more classes as people express interest. A class involves 2 or 3 2-hour sessions and includes a make-and-take project. Contact me on slack: @inaudible or via email.
  • I've been designing round tuits in inkscape and making them on the lasers and finishing them in the Paint Box.
  • I also have an somewhat-abandoned Magic Mirror project and a firewalker shoe project that need to be finished.
    • UPDATE: Magic Mirror is physically done, just need to finish the configuration
  • And then there's the FFT I'm writing for a musical NeoPixel thing I have in my head. I've killed so many bugs. So. many. bugs... Just call me the Orkin man.
    • UPDATE: FFT is done! Now, to learn programming the esp32 with esp-idf (FreeRTOS and interrupts and bluetooth, OH MY!)
    • ANOTHER UPDATE: FFT is done and works beautifully, the Bluetooth A2DP sink part works (it receives audio!), the analysis code and LED code work together nicely to make pretty lights. Now I just need to figure out the A2DP source part.
  • Ongoing: unofficial Official Friday Night Tour Guide
