Programmed a Raspberry Pi using Python and Linux tools to continuously attempt to sort a randomly generated list of numbers using the Bogo Sort sorting algorithm. Upon successfully sorting the list, subscribers in a mailing list were emailed the statistics and duration of the sorting process.

Raspberry Pi Robot Arm Surveillance Camera

November 2018

Programmed a Raspberry Pi that controlled a web camera mounted on a servo-motor robot arm. Implemented the ability to view a live feed, capture images, record video and control the servo arm over SSH

Seinfeld Theme Door Sensor

November 2018

Constructed a circuit using an Arduino, ultrasonic sensor, and Adafruit MP3 Shield to play a randomly selected MP3 file when the ultrasonic sensor data deduced that an individual entered the room.
