Compilation of some of the projects (20+) we have made over the years! 

Display with glowSpace-REX: Predict Risk Index of Asteroid Collision using Artificial Intelligence (2018)

Mission Hack Toronto

We decided to create a project which will use Artificial Intelligence / Neural Networks to predict the “Palermo Technical Impact Hazard Scale” for the collision of an asteroid with Earth. Our system would then convert the values of this scale into musical notes which would then be used to blink lights at the appropriate frequency on a custom designed hardware for displaying Asteroid data.

TRAPPIST Lights COver No TextTrappist-1 Model: Lights, Music and Science (2018)

Ontario Science Centre, Toronto

Trappist-1’s Musical System light and sound model where the motion of the planets are controlled by the music they generate and they all synchronize for a grand finale! It required making, learning musical notes, coding of midi files, Arduino, relays, led lights and lot more: a very challenging project. So we had to do it!

The Cosmic Dance (2017)

MakerFest 2017 Installation

The traditional Indian puppets are moved using Servos. Their movements are determined by signals from Space. We used a Geiger counter to capture alpha particles, beta particles and gamma rays which produced the signals.

Maker Fest Toronto

The robot uses two servos and Arduino to make drawings based on pre-programmed coordinates.

It makes use of inverse kinematics to produce the movements.


Toronto Playground (2014) TorontoPlayGround

Maker Fest Toronto

One of our very first projects to simulate children playing in Toronto parks. The park made was Stanley Park and it had see-saw, swings, merry go round, and water fountain switching on sequentially using an Arduino.

Model of Apollo 13./ Saturn V

Apollo 11/Saturn V Working Model (2015)

NASA Space Apps

Using Arduinos, Sensors, Transreceivers, Motors and NASA audio files. We made a 30 LEDs Sequence Panel, Launch Pad 39A, Countdown Clock, Saturn V Rocket and Electric Bolts. Actions were automated to Countdown Clock (1) Retraction of Arms (2) Rocket going to Internal Power (3) Firing of Bolts (4) Rocket blasted using mechanical force (5) Rocket transmitting live telemetry data (Pitch, Roll, Yaw, Acceleration, Altitude) on display screen over wireless.

The project was inspired by our family’s visit to the Kennedy Space Centre’s Apollo 11 / Saturn V building in 2015 where we saw the Control Room for the launch along with the giant Sequence Panel, VAB, Launch Pad and the Saturn V rocket itself.
