Bully

Need to document an experimental aircraft build? Tired of Kitlog, blogging sites, or even handwritten notes? Me too! Bully is a builder’s logging tool, written in Java.

The Chaos Game

I learned about The Chaos Game while taking PHYS311 Classical Mechanics. You could play the game by hand, but I’m a computer scientist, so I wrote a quick Python program to play it for me. I like how the Turtle package it simulates the point-by-point nature of the game.

PRRC

Picard

The Picard (a portmanteau of Pi Aviation Conditions Indicator/nod to Star Trek) is a Pi-powered device to show aviation weather conditions on a series of LEDs. Many thanks to Michael DuPont, whose REST API powers the project.
