Peter Needs A Pint

Created for the 2013 MolyJam at the Durham location.

Peter is down at the pub and needs some drinking buddies. Gather up the townsfolk so he won’t have to drink alone.


Play by yourself or with a friend. Earn more beer for yourself by bringing the most people down to the pub. If you have a MolyBot, it will pour your beer for you at the end of each round; otherwise you’ll have to pour the beer yourself (MolyBot and beer not included).

Iron Man 3 Chest Arc Reactor

I made this prop to wear to the Iron Man 3 release (and to test out some new technology for a future project).

Arc Reactor


The whole thing was designed in OpenSCAD and 3D printed in ABS (both the housing and the diffusor puck).  A Teensy 2 module drives the LED strip (WS2812 clone, 60 pixels/m) and is is wired up to a BLE112 module for communications.

You can control it via Bluetooth (no app yet, you hand craft a 1, 3, 6, or 7 byte message in a BLE explorer app to set a greyscale color, or one/two RGB colors and a ping-pong speed).  By default it boots up into ‘Arc reactor blue’ with a soft breathing animation.

Undead Man Lover

Undead Man Lover is the game I worked on for the 2013 Global Game Jam at the NC State location.

The jam started off rough due to a nasty winter storm, which prevented us from meeting on Friday night. We did pitches/team formation thru a combination of mumble, google+, and a wiki. Thankfully the roads cleared up enough to open the jam site on Saturday around 1 pm and we were able to jam in person for the rest of the weekend.
