Robotics has always been a interest of mine. It allows me to merge my programming skills and to have them 'reach out' into the real world and control things. This page will show many of the projects I've done, and have underway. The merging of humans and machines through the sensing of nerve impulses is going to bring about a revolution in our interaction with both machines and virtual body extensions.

Ethan in the kids robot lab
Start of the large 6 leg robot, see autocad drawings for details. Probably use linear actuators (screw drives) to move joints, though I'm looking into small hydraulic actuators
Screw drives with stepper motors attached. For a CNC router table I'm building
WiFi garden cart, will allow me to drive around the farm in Canada over the internet.
