Smartphone Controlled Pumpkin

Here’s an interesting idea, a Jack-O’-Lantern that can be controlled with a smartphone or any device capable of browsing the web. All you need is a Wemos D1 Mini board, along with a couple LEDs and wire. Check it out in the video below:

Arduino Strain Relief Enclosure

Here’s an interesting idea, a project box, or enclosure for an Arduino Uno that not only keeps the board in place, but secures the wires as well. I actually did most of the build a month or so ago as an experiment, and didn’t think I’d use it in a video, but eventually decided to (wow, great story bro). Check the build/results below, or you can see more details on instructables if you so prefer.

The Creativity Podcast: Where Art and Engineering Collide

Since I’m apparently not busy enough with various writing assignments, YouTube, and traveling, I’m now doing a Podcast with Max Maker called The Creativity Podcast. It’s been a lot of fun so far, and I find it quite entertaining to listed to, even though I can definitely see some room for improvement in myself. It’s not like YouTube where you can record something over and over until you get it right into an acceptable format.

The podcast is about ourselves, and our experience making stuff, inspiration, and really, whatever comes up. As you can see from the image above, we’re on episode 2, where we feature a guest, Steven Richter, who made an amazing Jumanji board that can be seen here. I’d invite you to check it out, and see where it goes!
