I’ve been fascinated with augmented reality (AR) since learning about projects like Layar and WordLens. These apps combine the camera, GPS, gyros, processing power and constant connectedness of smart phones to add layers of meta-information on top of the world around us. My interest in this application of technology and information should come as no surprise—technical [...]

Augmented Reality, or AR, is a general term for manipulating our experience of the world around us with technology. Today it means pointing your smartphone camera at a restaurant and getting reviews. Tomorrow it might mean complete immersion into a customizable version of reality via 3D stereoscopic camera/video headsets.
There was some interest in my robot intern, so I’ve put together a brief video explaining him. InternBot was inspired by projects like Hektor, AS220 Labs’ Drawbot and Make: Magazine’s Drawing Robot. The hardware consists of a whiteboard & marker, binder clips, fishing line, two stepper motors, an Arduino with Adafruit’s MotorShield, and a computer running Processing. [...]
Extruded 3D type for an Alberta Venture Magazine article speculating when oilsands investments will see a recovery. 3 out of 10 delegates polled predicted sector spending to return in 2015. This was a quick turnaround project, and I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.
After seeing my Cult of Done Poster, compulsive Maker extraordinaire Bre Pettis asked me to collaborate on MakerBot, a low-cost, modular, open-source 3D rapid prototyping printer kit. The build-it-yourself robot prints physical objects designed in 3D software using extruded molten plastic. Builders are encouraged to share the objects they design via Thingiverse and even contribute [...]
Fellow freelance illustrator and former classmate Cody Walker has been writing some great technical illustration tutorials for Adobe Illustrator over at VectorTuts.com. So far he’s covered orthographics, isometric projection, one-point, two-point and three-point perspective, as well as some great tips on using Illustrator in general. These tutorials are a great start for anyone interested in [...]
Alberta Venture Magazine asked me to create a 3D typographic trophy for the cover of their annual Venture 100, a roundup of the 100 largest companies headquartered in Alberta. The image communicates the prestige of being a part of this elite group. See the work and read more here.
