Axis Reloaded

Worked with Eric Wells and Mark Sherstan to design, construct, and program a robotic kinetic sculpture as a hardware demo for the University of Alberta Faculty of Engineering.

The "claw" uses a machine vision (webcam in the palm) to track deviations in the rotating plate, to trigger a re-center. The whole device is self-contained and autonomous, using a Raspberry Pi for trajectory calculation and device control. This project was additionally demoed at the January 2020 edition of Telus World of Science's Dark Matters.

Frick I Love Nature

Was a production assistant and b-roll cameraman for select segments of a couple of episodes of Frick I Love Nature. This was completely unrelated to any tech stuff, but was an absolute blast.
