Turn Ethereum Addresses into Etherscan Links in iTerm2

Tired of copying and pasting eth addresses into etherscan's search from your terminal? Try turning each address and transaction hash into a link straight to etherscan.

Abra.js

Abra is an incredibly small and simple sort-of-react-like JS "framework". Definitely not production ready.

Puzzlemaster Presents

I love solving puzzles, I love JavaScript, and I listen to Will Shortz’ Sunday Puzzle almost every week. Oftentimes, I find myself thinking of ways I could solve Will’s puzzles with code. This post is a way for me to combine my passions and hopefully teach a bit of JavaScript and algorithms.

Celestial Dancers

Celestial Dancers is an orbital mechanics simulation I made using React and A-Frame VR. The simulation is built for virtual reality browsers, so it’s best viewed with google cardboard and a smart phone. It still works on desktop, and with the keyboard you can fly through space and use your mouse to look around.

Winning UCLA’s (IDE)A Hardware Hackathon

I had an amazing time this weekend working with Daniel Kurek and Austin Martin at a 36 hour hackathon put on by UCLA IEEE. We built a prototype of an idea called the Lightning Band – a wristband that changes colors based on the velocity of your wrist. In its current state, it is ideal for wearing at nightclubs, sporting events, concerts, or anywhere else you want to show your colors and move your body. In the future, this band will be able to communicate with other bands in ways your phone can’t. It will provide an easy method to ensure your group stays together in big crowds, and it will make sure that your child doesn’t wander too far away.
