Projects


SportsPi

I’ve been working on this project since December 2012 with James Littlejohn. SportsPi is a Raspberry Pi based platform for the Internet of Things for the sporting community.

The SportsPi

– creates and manages a local WIFI network
– share and display content real time
– bluetooth reader for identity and sensor data
– radio wireless for longer distance communication of modules
– node.js server for management of data and modules

The project has undergone a number of iterations and we have built a number of modules that connect to the main SportsPi. These have included an Electronic Stop Watch with built in Transceiver. An event emitter and Light sensor with a Transceiver and Bluetooth 4.0 central device to connect to sensors.

Oneder Games

This is a joint project I’m working on with Phil Thomson who came up with the original concept for our first game AyToBe. The game platform is on iOS for the iPhone and iPad. Phil is producing all the graphics and music and I am doing the programming. The first betas of the game were written in Objective-C but I am now using Apples latest programming language Swift.

Dance Amazing, Aberdeen and Aberduino

Aberduino were commissioned to build a couple of interactive installations for the Dance Amazing event that took place in Aberdeen’s beach ballroom over the weekend of the 2nd and 3rd February, 2013. We built a video and switch wall. The event was a tremendous success and both installations were exhibited at 17 Belmont street in April / May 2013. The switch wall is currently installed at ‘Make’ Aberdeen.

Eye Training Aid

I was commissioned to build a prototype replica eye to be used as a training aid for medical students. I hooked up a Raspberry Pi, Arduino and Invensys 6050 IMU then connected to them over WiFi to my Mac and controlling an on screen sphere as shown below
