An odd, but informative video showing why ALL countries have a mixed socialist/capitalist economic system.

I got green balls!!!! (and I have pictures to prove it...)

Yep. That's right. My first tomatoes are starting to grow. Such a beautiful site.

Let's see how long it takes to get a return on ~$50  investment for my raised bed garden.

You might be doing something wrong, I thought you were supposed to have a green thumb.

The wiring is much easier and cleaner to use. Good work.

Here is an animated version of the 3D BioPrinter's X and Y stage.

I've been too busy to play around with electronics much lately, but I woke up early this morning and thought, what the heck...

This is the insides of a DVD drive. I built a little stepper motor control circuit and wrote a short VHDL code to drive it on the CoolRunnerII CPLD dev board. This is going to be half of a DIY 3D BioPrinter to stack living cells together to make any number of new biologically safe technologies possible!

Things are going well. I am still working at Intel, day shift now and compressed work week. I have 2 kids and another on the way. I like the 3D printer technology stuff. That's pretty cool.

Saturday I started building a raised bed garden. I hit up Home Depot and snagged a bunch of scrap wood for about $20. These pics were taken Sunday morning so there is still a little shade, but that won't last long.

I made the bed "C" shaped for ease of access. I can reach every plant. Watch out weeds!

I don't think Frank has one of those but he may have something that will work if you do not find one.

Awesome movie. Visual effect are outstanding in that they enhance the film without distracting from it. The acting feels natural. The music is subtle and sets the mood. Finally, the story is 1st class.

Synopsis: An employee of a major computer firm wins a corporate retreat with the genius programmer who started the company, only to find out he has been selected to be part of an experiment to see if a new AI is self aware. When you're not even sure about yourself, how do you tell what a machine is thinking?

Hanging out at the PCC Sylvania MakerSpace with +Michelle Guckenheimer  and +Eric Thomas .

Got another step closer to the final 3D BioPrinter. I used the laser cutter to cut 95% of the parts out of acrylic, and I 3D printed a couple of anchors to screw the stepper motor down.

I assembled the Y-stage. Need to add the motor to the X-stage and hang the cell extruder over top and it will be working!

This is my concept art for the 3D BioPrinter. Just the X and Y stages so far. I still need to design the Z stage to move the print head up and down.

So far everything is pretty easy to manufacture with the laser cutter and 3D printers at the school so I should have this together soon.

Finished filling the bed with soil and planting last night. Took these pictures this morning before heading off to work.

1.5 cubic yards of soil
15 green onions
21 shallots
5 tomatoes

I have plants more in buckets, but this is what fit in the bed.

Those look like onions,  I have been trying to get rid of them from my flower bed.

Nice work! Has there been any progress since this video? I would love to see a link to the project web page in the video description.

The tilting of the extruder should allow you to print overhangs without any support material. Have you tested to see if 90 degree overhangs will print?
