Wow, I had no idea I was going to be on the cover of HackSpace Magazine!
I had a great time chatting with Andrew, and he somehow wrangled my ramblings into an article. 😅
Hope I conveyed how grateful I am to all of you, sources of constant inspiration, whether you're mentioned or not.

Here's my new minimalist creative coding playground!

What animations can YOU make using JavaScript and 64 sliders? 🎚️✨

Fibonacci64 Micro HDR w Pixelblaze Pico & magnetic wearable battery connector is awesome but doesn't exactly roll off the tongue. 😆 Help us pick a better name in the poll above. ☝️
We're still finalizing details, but these pics should convey the awesomeness that is coming soon.

Finally revisiting this project. Waiting on some new capacitive touch sensors to try, so I thought I'd write a new pattern to take advantage of the rings.
I mapped all the "connections" between rings, randomly switch to a new ring & change direction.

Fibonacci64 Flower: 148mm PCB w 64 RGB LEDs & six touch pads, mounted in engraved black LED acrylic, driven w Adafruit QT Py SAMD21 & .
All six touch pads now work & the waves are slower.
Hope to have a few in my Tindie store in a few weeks.

Still working on getting all six touch pads working correctly, and I'm going to slow the waves down a bit.

I've been inspired by @lixielabs@twitter.com & @NorthAllenPoole@twitter.com to improve my 3D modeling skills. I still have a long way to go, but I'm making progress. 😁

Knife making class day 2 complete! Highly recommend it if you get the chance. 10/10 will be back for more.

I'm no @Blenster, but I think I did alright for my first time? 😆
The instructor was awesome and a huge help.
Here are some examples of what we're attempting to create.

Had a great time today at day one of the knife making class at Hammerspace Community Workshop & Makerspace! Today we profiled & beveled the damascus steel billet. Tomorrow we'll use the forge to heat-treat, add a brass bolster, deer antler handle, finish and sharpen.

Hello! 👋

By day I'm a professional software engineer. By night I enjoy making things, especially organic-looking things with LEDs and electronics, using 3D printing and laser cutting. I sell some of the things I make, as Evil Genius Labs. 😈

I've made Fibonacci LED PCBs both tiny (128 1.2mm LEDs on 33mm disc) to giant (1024 LEDs on 500mm disc).
