Here are two unusual things I do in my spare time: work on random engineering projects, and learn about random things.  This blog is a place to talk about those projects, in case others find them interesting or useful, and a place to vent any random thoughts about science, technology, or philosophy.

The blog's name asks a question: what technology can one twenty-something guy make, using only a bunch of random knowledge from Wikipedia and elsewhere on the net, a background in computer science and game programming, and too much free time?


  1. What kind of engineering projects? I'm not all that clear on what an engineer does in the first place, though so it may be a little complicated for you to explain. I imagine it's something like what your most recent blog is about, but it'd nice to have something more concrete.

    I look forward to seeing what you can do with Wikipedia knowledge! There's a lot of information out there, so it will be interesting to see what ideas you come up with. :-)

  2. Well, engineers do everything, so it's hard to narrow down. Just look at any functional object: somebody spent some time designing it.

    As for the blog, there's a few topics already lined up: the propeller stuff, and lots more about my quadcopter project. I also have a self-aiming Nerf gun, an OBD-II (car diagnostics data tracking) Android app, and a few other projects that I'll get around to covering in time.

    1. I am really looking forward to another update sometime, maybe about your awesome coasters or something! :-)
