The other day I was reading Hackaday and saw a post there about a soft robotic gripper project made by roboticist James Bruton. James does a good job going over soft robotics in his video. He also covers robotics in general on his channel, so I recommend checking him out if you want some info-tainment.Continue reading “Soft Robotic Gripper”
May second marked the 2021 Orthodox Easter. To celebrate the occasion my household decided to make some traditional eggs. The process is time consuming but the results are lovely. After boiling some eggs, we selected our dyes. The dyes we used were Yellow, Turquoise, Dark Green, Red, and Brick. Preparing the dyes involved mixing boilingContinue reading “Ukrainian Easter Eggs”
Rain is finally gone where I live so I was able to move my studio space outside. I was able to finish my second piece in this series. The background and the table were interesting to do this time because I got to play with a palette knife. I did not want any brush strokesContinue reading “Donuts and Coffee: Part 2”

There at my usual corner table, next to the hipster paintings andContinue reading “Donuts and Coffee”
I needed to edit a STEP file to print out a case for a project. My Lulzbot Mini’s print bed was too small. In order to print on my small printer I needed to cut the case into smaller pieces.

The Beginning Berkley was born in a farming village. His parents both looked normal. The genie blood comes from his father’s side a few generations back. While not unheard of to the village, genasi were still strange and something to be cautioned around. He found work as a grave digger, out of sight during theContinue reading “Dnd Backstory: Berkeley, Cleric of Kelemvor”
