What kinds of things are you interested in making or hacking?

Making everything from simple Arduino bumper boxes to a very large cislunar city-state (not actually expecting that one to happen any time soon...); Hacking the Planet (see the book of that name). Right now I'm focusing on starting up an open source project which I expect to produce freeway capable vehicle designs mostly buildable with desktop replicators and using Arduino driven electronics. (Would welcome help with this project.)

Do you have any work experience or hobbies that led to your interest in making or hacking?

Some thirty year old circuit design experience; a fair amount of coding in a dozen or more languages since 1970; automotive, aeronautical and aerospace design and engineering (along with a touch of naval architecture); and too many mod' inviting gearhead hobbies. (I modify virtually everything I get my hands on, although a certain amount of that has been decidedly inadvertent... :-/


I'm a retired engineer who was raised and lived most of my life in Alaska. I was chief engineer for a solar car race team competing in the first solar car race across Australia. Designed and built aircraft and much sport and photo equipment.
