Better Brewing

See how we used the Dexter Industries thermometers and the dSwitch to make a better brew. A rough, but effective control system beat out the traditional watch-and-adjust system most home-brewers use.





eFlush Project

We got tired of flushing. And we got tired of being reminded to put the seat down. So we put this together; a machine that not only flushes for you but puts the seat down each time, whether you're standing or prefer to sit. View a more detailed description of the project here.







Timelapse Camera Project

This project uses LEGO® MINDSTORMS® NXT to build a timelapse apparatus for a small Canon camera. The device takes many pictures over a very long period of time. View a more detailed description and some timelapse videos here.








dRadar Project

Dexter Radar . . . or dRadar for short. This project was put together to test the limits of the Lego NXT ultrasonic sensor. The sensor, mounted on a motor, spins and takes data on the area surrounding it. View a more detailed description of the project here.
