Projects

This is a collection of some projects I’ve dabbled with outside of formal work settings. Some are also part of my post graduate work.

Raspberry Pi node server using the MEAN stack

RasPi – The two links under the Raspi menu are for LED and Audio transmission. One way audio plays back on my always on Raspberry Pi so have fun talking into a cave! If the speakers are off, the LEDs blink to alert incoming audio messages on my end. (Sorry, I haven’t updated after the host move, so this project is not online currently)


Snake – Mr Noodles / A simple Android game

A simple android game developed in my spare time to bring back memories of the popular Nokia platform game Snake. Graphics, sound, artwork vary considerably but the goals remain similar. Works on the most classic Android devices as well requiring Android SDK 1.5 or above only.

Available on the Play Store


AppInventor Toggle / Android utility

A simple utility application that allows one click enabling of the features needed to work with Google’s latest AppInventor on an Android powered device. Updates are accompanied by Toast notifications. Toggle can be triggered via application button or a 1×1 home-screen widget.

Available on the Play Store
