Tuition Run VR

A CMU-themed endless running game where the player collects coins to help pay off their tuition. My teammates & I built it for CMU's Build18 2017. It was coded in Unity for VR headsets, with a Kinect to track user motion.

Window Washing Robot

My team's project for my capstone course, Mechatronic Design. This robot autonomously cleaned a pair of divided windows in a 3 minute timeframe. Our robot took first place in the competition between 6 teams.

Maggie

Built during CMU's Build18 2016, Maggie the holographic receptionist can answer your questions about CMU. These include giving directions, finding open food spots, and special event lookups. Powered by Python & Unity on the front end and api.ai on the back end.

Battery Protection Module

My PCB in Carnegie Mellon Racing's 2017 racecar. This board prevents the battery voltage from reaching a dangerous level by cutting off the battery when the voltage approaches a dangerous level. The module has an exceptionally low quiescent current draw of 2.9 microamps.

Avocado Chair

As an industrial design project, my partner and I were tasked with creating a chair for milennials. Inspired by our generation's favorite toast, we created a whimsical chair shaped like an avocado. The chair was made by first creating a blender model, slicing it, then laser cutting the individual layers out of cardboard. The chairs are able to fully support the weight of an adult.

Unpowered Exoskeleton

I built a passive exoskeleton utilizing a knee brake that allows a user to walk while the exoskeleton supports loads of up to 70lb. Operator comfort is improved via custom 3-DOF joints that approximate the human hip. If you lock the exoskelton while crouching, it doubles as a wearable chair.
