Dice Tower

February 5, 2011

I didn’t want to do another LoL Shield project today, mostly because my whole front page is nothing but LoL Shield posts. So I decided to do something I’ve been wanting to design for some time, a dice tower. I have thrown it up on Thingiverse. The image above is just a quick render in […]

Ten Second LED Belt Buckle

February 4, 2011

The Diavolino from Evil Made Science is hands down my favorite Arduino clone. It’s the only one I sell at workshops, and it works extremely well with the LoL Shield. So much so, that it is my official recommendation as THE Arduino to use with the LoL Shield. Why do I love it so much? […]

August 12, 2010

I’ve recently received a few awesome LoL Shield projects in my inbox, and I thought I should share. The first one was Pete’s awesome white block clock.

Mid-west Hackerspace Tour

August 5, 2010

I was recently at Maker Faire Detroit, which was a blast. Mitch Altman and I, along with some great volunteers, taught around 1,500 people to solder during the event.
