Connect Four Robot

Built in 2014

This Connect Four robot was my final project for my Microcomputer Project Laboratory course. We had complete freedom over choosing our final project, but there were two rules we had to follow. First, we had to use the Cypress PSOC 5LP kit that was given to us at the beginning of the course. Second, we had to use an 8051 micro-controller or another micro-controller that can be programmed in the same assembly language.

The Mailman

Built in 2014

In January of 2014 I competed in the MASLAB robotics competition here at MIT. It is a month long event of building a robot from scratch that culminates in a single-elimination final competition. This year there were 17 teams competing, which range from about 3-5 members. To make a very long, tiring, and stressful story short, we ended up coming in 1st place in the final competition.

DecaCharger

Built in 2013

I spent the summer of 2013 interning at a robotics startup called Romotive. They make the robots in the above photo. One of the projects I worked on was what I dubbed the “DecaCharger.” Simply put, the DecaCharger is a charger capable of charging ten devices at once. This was built to easily and quickly charge the many iDevices and robots that Romotive owns.

MIT Lighted Sign

Built in 2012

The idea for this project popped into my mind one day when I was visiting MIT’s website. What I love about their website is that everyday there is a new “spotlight” post on the front page. However, not only is there a new post everyday, but there is also a new color scheme on the logo that matches the spotlight photo. The idea was to have the sign’s colors match the colors of the MIT logo on the website each day.

da Vinci

Built in 2011

Using a system of gears and stepper motors, da Vinci is capable of etching low resolution images in grey-scale on an Etch-A-Sketch. The images are first processed into a text file using a custom written piece of computer software before being loaded onto an SD card for da Vinci to read and draw.
