Limbkit

This is a fun game I made in Node.js that is a competitive, multiplayer game. It is kind of like Cookie Clickers mashed with Kahoot, if you've heard of those. Multiple people join with a game code and can attack each other, trying to win the most money.

The Switch

The Switch is a random thing I built that tests various technologies to form a virtual switch that you can switch on from anywhere in the world, and it will update on everyone else's devices simultaneously. For instance, you can flip The Switch on your phone and see it update real-time on your computer.

Arduino project: Cat feeder

An Arduino is a small programmable microcontroller. I used a microcontroller similar to an Arduino that has wifi to create an automatic cat feeder. When plugged in, the sketch connects to wifi and posts to a database that it is online. It then gets the real time from an API I used and calculates when the cat will need to be fed next. Then, it waits until it is the time of day to feed the cat, and it dispenses a measured amount of food through an auger and then posts success to the database.

Technologies used

  • ESP8266 microcontroller
  • ESP8266 WiFi
  • Transistor as relay
  • PostgresSQL
  • API with POST/GET and query security
