    • Favorite old Project that you have completed?

      • David Kronstein is letting Derek borrow one of his high-speed Chronos cameras, so Derek is going to use a high¬†voltage capacitor and giant SCR to fry some electronic components and hopefully get some good footage

      • 16-bit flip dot array for demonstrations (instead of boring LEDs)
