Winter break of my senior year, my friend Nadav and I built an electric motorcycle for Nightshift Bikes. We started with a 1975 BMW R75/5 that was flooded in Hurricane Katrina, and in 3 weeks, stripped it, sand blasted the salvageable parts, and built a fully electric city scrambler on that frame.
Instead of designing one piece of furniture, here I designed a set of constraints and relationships defining a family of objects. More here.
Drawing above by Summer Madox. For a Thayer engineering course, Digital Electronics, Nadav Hendel & I used VHDL to design digital circuits. For our final project, we programmed an FPGA to work as a multicolor Etch-a-Sketch.
Our VHDL code and report can be found here if you want to program your own FPGA, or if you're just curious.
A musical interface I designed, called Hexba, as part of a grant-project exploring new music technology. As part of that, I also built a recording studio.
Fall ’15 I worked with three other Thayer students (Ralf Carestia, Nadav Hendel, and Keenan Wood) to design and build a 6 inch long cantilevered bridge, and to accurately predict the load and point of failure at an astounding 400 pounds.
