I’ve finally had some time to put together my website for my business. 8mtech.com is online and has most of the pages complete. I’ve decided to keep the layout very simple and I’ll eventually flesh out the theme a little better.
As an aside, my business cards came in, they were very nice. print100 based out of Hong Kong did a good job. $30 for 300 cards with corner cutting, matte finish and double-side colour. Very nice!
Anyways, if anyone wants a freelance inventor or a draft monkey, give me a call! 🙂
Well, the past few weeks have been eventful and interesting. I’ve been busy and school is almost over. I’ve had a few things on the go and I’ve come up with some interesting ideas and implementations. Sorry for the lack of images in this post but I’ve been lazy taking them.
The DIY Measuring arm
This idea came from the need to build a measuring arm at a very low cost. I simply used some wood and some regular linear potentiometers.
This so far works reasonably, though it does have some linearity issues. I will need to bring this unit in to the shop to measure the joints and determine the exact positions in order to calculate the position. Rock band device
I was inspired by a fellow classmate to build a device for teaching children how to play the drums and other instruments. I can’t get into any hot and heavy details, however it was a success for two drums to be made. The sensors worked and transmission of the data was reliable and the software worked. It was a lot of fun to build and we may work further on the idea with better design specifications. Auditory Camera level
My idea for an auditory camera level is working to an extent but I’m having difficulty filtering out the vibrations from arm shake and the like.
Anyways, things are going well but it’s a lot of birds in the bush and none in the hand. I’m just writing to keep a log of what’s happening 🙂
Well, I’ve been at Microbusiness Training center for 5 weeks now and I’ve been working as well. Soon, Eight-M Technical Services will be operational and i’ll be working for myself.
I’ve set up a new domain with my Dreamhost account. The site’s URL is http://8mtech.com. As of posting this, the site isn’t ready, but it will be soon.
The viscometer is being tested by Endura right now and here’s what it looks like, it’s a youtube video, be warned.
also, I figure it’d be neat to post the logo for Eight-M technical.
Some people who have known me since Junior High would know this symbol. While it was something I used as a kid, I started using the name Eight-M Designs in order to order stuff because companies wouldn’t send swag out to an individual.
