Michael's Intro
« on: December 22, 2016, 12:23:24 AM »
So I've already been told that half of everyone at this lab is named Michael so guessing my name will be very easy if you forget.


Like I said in my intro, I am a junior at UCF studying EE. I have wanted to do this for a very long time so I've gotten ahead of myself and learned a lot about electronics outside of school. Because of this I've done a lot of projects on my own. My biggest project took about 5 months when I built an 8x8x8 RGB LED Cube. I heard that finishing projects is pretty rare around here so maybe I'll be an outcast. lol.
I came across this place when Liam(Science) told me about it and at the time it was too far but now it is a little easier to get to the lab. One thing that truly amazes me about this place is that it is easy to ALWAYS find someone who is an expert at something whether it be biohacking, leather working, welding, machining. Anything really.
I hope that at some point I can be an expert to someone else to be able to teach what I have learned on my own. I am not sure if I would have the time to formally prepare a class for a group of people but I'm always open to giving tips!
Soldering and lights are my expertise if you were wondering.
If you need to illuminate something then I could find the coolest way to do it!
I am currently working on some Disney ears where the actual ears are made of a matrix of LEDs to be able to show animations and change colors. Ask me about it if you want to see pictures! I think it looks amazing and I am pretty sure you would too!


As well as school, I also work at a pizzeria and Fixstop(A tech repair shop) so I could help if you have any questions on tech hardware. I wouldnt consider myself an expert at computers but I can tell you A LOT about phones and why they might not be working or acting weird.


I hope this was enough to intro myself and if you have any questions then feel free to ask!
Cant wait to meet you all!

Welcome!

We could definitely press you into service with soldering, bwuahaha. (I am the molten metals person at lab and for Maker Faire Orlando - soldering and welding - and we could always use people willing to teach intro to soldering.) Or maybe a project workshop with lights, who knows!

It's funny, because we so rarely hear Science referred to by his actual given name, ha.

We look forward to seeing you at lab!
