Balancing cube

This cube manages to balance itself on a corner, and can simultaneously rotate around its axis in a controlled manner. It does so using clever controls and a set of three reaction wheels. The original idea for this device comes from researchers at ETH Zürich, who demonstrate their “Cubli” in this video. Its design has…… Continue reading Balancing cube

ClockSquared Mini, a word clock wristwatch

About a year ago, I had some time to spare over the summer and decided to challenge myself with a project that I call “Clocksquared Mini”. It is Clocksquared, but in a tiny wristwatch package. This gives rise to a major challenge, as everything has to be shrunk down approximately ten times from a 300x300x50…… Continue reading ClockSquared Mini, a word clock wristwatch

Miniature 3456 LED cube

For some reason, I’m intrigued by LEDs. Indeed, they can be found in pretty much all of my projects. I was recently inspired by one of Greg Davill’s projects, a miniature LED cube boasting a total of 3456 LEDs. After pondering about it for a while, I decided I’d attempt building one myself. This post…… Continue reading Miniature 3456 LED cube

M&Ms and Skittles sorting machine

External links: Reddit thread, Github project files, Imgur post. This project, the M&Ms and Skittles sorting machine, was on my to-do list for a long time. I finally managed to complete the project after working on it for several months in my free time. The machine uses an Arduino microcontroller, stepper motors, an RGB colour…… Continue reading M&Ms and Skittles sorting machine

ClockSquared, a wooden RGB LED word clock

Eight months ago, I built my first word clock, which garnered a lot of attention after putting it on the internet. This was pretty encouraging, so I continued development on an even better version of this clock. I think the efforts were succesful, and I call the result ‘ClockSquared’: a word clock that displays time…… Continue reading ClockSquared, a wooden RGB LED word clock
