I am 16 years old and a student currently living in Texas. I'm a Boy Scout (Eagle in 2018) and an active Sea Scout. My interests range from technology to programming. I am also interested in DIY.
Non-Body Actuated Prosthetic Hand
The goal of the project is to build an inexpensive fully articulating hand that senses the amputee's muscle electrical pulses (rather than traditional shoulder movement) to move the hand.
Inexpensive (under $2,000 as opposed to $80,000)
Electronically Actuated with on-board MCU
3D printed from a flexible thermoplastic - which dramatically lowers the moving parts and assembly….thus lowering the cost.
EMG (electromyography ) to sense what the amputees “want” to do with the hand
“force myography” (can sense the force of the musculature and communicate with the neural-network program to “guess” the intent of the amputee
Mobile Telepresence Robot
Remote operators can control the robot which will physically join in an existing physical meeting using a camera and screen projecting the user's face.
Built to simulate a more “natural” interaction with people on-site for remote attendees.
2 Robots for Robotics Teams
Built multiple 3D Printers
Full Desktop Systems
Unregulated Power Supply
Used 120v AC mains
Using a transformer step it down
Full bridge rectifier
Used capacitors to smooth out the power
Split-Cell Hydroxy Gas Generator
Trying to capture the gas - purify and then compress for high density storage
RC Planes & Cars
Cut foam core on a laser table
Installed electronics and flight controls
Manually milled parts out of aluminum blocks for RC cars using CAD (Onshape) programs from scratch taking measurements with callipers from.
Water Evacuation Unite for an HVAC Unit
Micro-controller to activate a solid state relay water evacuation. Wrote the code that runs on the micro-controller.
HHO Gas Generator (Browns Gas)
Have made several iterations of a “wet cell” design
Turned garbage into explosive gas out of water
Water and organic matter to create and control biogas
Valve system for gas extraction
Solar Car Build (with UTD)
Wired the motor and electronics
Lead a team to wire the motor control system.
Wired solar panels to charge controller and
