Well, I’m all settled in to the new place and I was able to reconnect w/ the Think|Haus hackerspace. Some of the members there are entering a team in Maker Faire’s upcoming Power Racing Series. Essentially it’s a bunch of grown people who take old children’s Power Wheels toys and modify them with larger DC motors. Although not an official team member I have begun assisting with the design and production of the motor controller circuit. For obvious reasons I’m not going to be posting any specifics or schematics until after the contest, but it’s shaping up to be a really fun project just to goof around with. More details available on the official Think|Haus site. It feels good to be back :D

Cheers!
