Starting as a unique partnership with 80+ year old handyman, “Phil”, the Aquia Water System quickly became a very fun and interesting side project for me. The Aquia Water System will provide a low-cost and simple method for providing instant hot water at the sink. The first working prototype was a practice in expanding my embedded systems skills by developing on the ATMega32 processor. Long term goals for the Aquia Water System include subsidizing a clean water project for Africa and Southeast Asia.
Concealable Entertainment Flask
Go home Nintendo — You’re Drunk. The Ink Whiskey Concealable Entertainment Flask is a new product launched through the Kickstarter platform in October of 2013. Appearing as an old-school NES cartridge but having the secret power of holding your booze, this is one unique flask! It holds over 4 oz. and provides a great conversation starter for anyone who remembers the NES. I provided all engineering designs, manufacturing solutions, and business strategy to Matt Cornell who has taken the product and company and run with it!
