Projects

KallaBalla

  • Automatically adjust the color space of distorted map tiles.
  • Makes assumptions about logical color assignments using data from different zoom levels.

Status: Was fun - abandoned

Java       Java Advanced Imaging API


Salami Rocket

  • Modeled, simulated and build a hybrid rocket motor with nitrous oxide and salami as propellant.
  • Successfully ground tested.

Status: Requires investment and better weather

Geil-o-mat      Lathe      RockSim      C++


CNC Mill - Migration to EMC2

The CNC mill was initially operated using WinPCNC which turned out to be limited, error prone and confusing.

  • Researched alternatives and decided EMC2 to be the best candidate (open source, feature rich and stable).
  • Extracted physical parameters from the CNC and configured EMC2.
  • Created a custom Ubuntu live CD for evaluation.

Status: evaluated

Geil-o-mat      EMC2      Linux


Battle For Wesnoth

  • Created several maps
  • Wrote an AI for survival maps using formularAI

Status: done

Wesnoth Markup Language      FormulaAI     


Cross Platform/Open Source - Laser Cutter Driver

The Metalab Laser Cutter (Epilog Legend 36Ext) is shipped with a windows only driver which needs to be operated from Corel Draw. In addition job optimization is insufficently implemented and might even lead to undesired results.

  • Reverse engineered the PCL based job format
  • Implemented cups backend
  • Wrote a postscript printer description
  • Implemented optimization algorithms avoiding problematic cutting order and reducing job duration.

Status: alpha

N900/Maemo

In the course of Metalab's participation in the Nokia App Forum i explored the N900 device. The recommended development environment, a VM image provided by the Maemo project turned out to be completely unusable since it was broken, outdated, undocumented and heavily misconfigured to a point that made me believe that it actually never was used for development. I upgraded, cleaned up and fixed it so that cross compiling and emulation is basically working though qemu's limited support for ARMel still prevents productiv use.

Status: In progress/stalled - qemu fix required
