Hivelord

Pete Perreault

Hive76's resident techno-clown, I built and exhibit the Hivelord at our various events, such as Tech Week, Maker Faire, Magfest, and Burning Man (someday). By day I work on telecomm projects at a large passenger train company. My irc handle is ginman. My amateur radio callsign is KB1MSH.

Projects

  • Hivelord 2 - coming soon
  • Hivelord - Inspired by the world of Philip K Dick, the Hivelord is digital interactive performance art: an electronic mask and galactic persona that inverts the traditional photo booth, taking snapshots of viewers and displaying them on his face.
  • Mechanical Keyboards - custom designed mechanical clicky keyboards with LEDs, for your premium typing experience.
  • Desklamp - A raspberry pi, msp430, infrared remote, and some relays are united to control the lights on my desk. A python script can detect when I'm on the wifi network and change the LED colors accordingly.
  • Makerbot lightbox - What can't you do with some hot glue and LEDs?
