Here are a few other smaller projects.

Arduino Directional Button Tank

This was an experimental/skeletal project I did before I started work on the Arduino TF2 Sentry. I took apart an old toy tank and connected an Arduino microcontroller to the existing wiring that led to the battery and motors that control the tank tracks. My idea was to have a set of directional buttons to input directions and save a path onto the Arduino. Another button would initiate the movement and travel along the path until all steps are completed. The last button is for clearing your saved path so that you can give directions for a new path. The turns were not perfect 90-degree angles because the turn angle varied on the battery charge, and I did not have any positioning sensors.
I also have a few other experimental/skeletal Arduino projects such as obstacle avoidance with ultrasonic sensors, but those were generic projects so I did not document them.

3D Scanned Portraits

I downloaded some software to do some 3d scans using Kinect and an iPad attachment. Since the scanning technology was created by someone else, not much work was actually done on my part except for creating the stand. It was a neat little experiment though.

Key Holder Card

This is just a quick 3d-printed card-shaped key holder that I put in my wallet.

Fisherfish Beetlebot

This was a small project I did in TEJ 3M1 which was pretty neat. This robot only uses switches, wiring, motors, and batteries to avoid obstacles when the whisker is pushed. I made mine into a fish with a fishing pole. I call it the "Fisherfish." It had the best performance due to proper wiring and improved wheels.

Simple Shuffling Bot

This was a small project I did in TEJ 4M1. This robot uses a switch, wiring, motors, and batteries to simulate a four-leg shuffling motion.

Cardboard Shelf

I build a cardboard shelf out of a cardboard box that was left by the previous tenant at the place I am staying at in university. I strategically measured out the box to make only cuts and folds to achieve a shelf shape without the need for extra cardboard or glue. (Though some glue was used for reinforcement.)

Cardboard Macintosh 128K

A quick and dirty prop for a young Steve Jobs Halloween costume.

I altered a box and put a surface in it to make a makeshift Macintosh 128K prop. The Amazon box I used coincidentally fit the surface perfectly, and was of the model "128". One element I liked was the reuse of a barcode as a replacement for the rainbow Apple Logo to embrace the box aesthetic.

That is all! I have done other projects but they either aren't documented or are programs that are skeletal/experimental.
