Key projects A sample of the projects that I'm working on at the moment.
Various projects about Reprap and 3D printing in general. I am working on my second Reprap and have designed and printed a few good models.
I'm automating my home through the use of Z-Wave and similar technologies. My current plan is to implement a WCF server that various controller devices throughout my home can control lighting, music and tasks.
My experiments with the Raspberry PI, and some projects that I am working on that uses it.
What I do Some of my other interests.
I play around building websites and eCommerce, and make a living from it.
