|Over the years I have tinkered with alot
of electronic gadgets and stuff. Here is a list of most of the things I have constructed.
Some were built from scratch, some were built from plans, some were kits and some I
You have never seen more things built in cardboard boxes and rats nests
of wires and parts as my projects had. I used everything from cardboard boxes to cigar
boxes, Tupperware, homasote, pref board, plastic, metal, etc. But please keep in mind that
I built the early stuff when I was in school with no money. Almost all the parts came from
junk TVs, radios, junk yards, etc. Also remember that back in the '70s we didn't have
Radio Shacks all over the place like we do now nor did I have my driver's license to go to
the electronic places that we did have. Look over these projects and I hope you find them
amusing and maybe even a little bit inspiring.

construction details and a video of the first test run.
My latest project, Arty, a robot built using the Arduino microcontroller,
programmed in "C" and powered by two 12 volt motors with IR distance and
remote control sensors. Robot is under
construction right now.
