About Me

I have always enjoyed learning new skills and making things.  In the pursuit of being able to make things, I earned my B.S. ME from Olin College.

I maintain this blog to try to provide information and inspiration to others. I have benefited from thousands of blogs and posts that others have made on obscure topics throughout the years. Without exception, every post here has drawn on information from another blog or forum post. Making this information available has helped me learn things that would have otherwise been extremely expensive or time consuming (or both) to learn in other ways.  Hopefully this blog helps some other folks out in the same way.

If you want to get a hold of me, leave a comment here or find me via the usual means of the internet these days (linkedin etc.).

    Hi Avery,
    Is it possible for you to provide a hex file for the five dollar arduino (for atmega328)? I have issues compiling it.
    Thanks

    Hey Avery, I saw your 3D printed chorded keyboard project and am very interested in that. I am building myself a chording keyboard at the moment (7 buttons, using the spiff chorder schematics). This will be my first electronics project ever and I am very excited, I will continue to read your blog. Keep up the good work and make the world a better place through engineering.

        Check it out, I have come a long way from when I first posted here.
        I have a prtty solid prototype that I threw together out of miscellaneous materials, I unfortuantely don’t have a printer so wearability will be a Little harder for me to engineer. Aside from that I wanted to thank you again for your inspiring work!

        feel free to cut this link out I just wanted to show you what I have done and ask for your permission to include you in the collaborators/inspiration sections
