I’ve created a business, set up a tax account, opened accounts with various suppliers, got a logo… I even made this website that you’re reading right now. It’s all important, but not very glamorous. I thought I’d mention it anyway.
I’ve built some prototypes, and made improvements based on my results. I’m trying to accomplish a few goals here:
- Improve durability
- Reduce setup complexity
- Make the rig more stable
This means I’m not only trying out different features, but I also am making slight variations to the design while measuring performance. I’m definitely geeking out with this project—for example, here’s a plot showing how the rig twists in all three axes. I want to reduce the magnitude and the frequencies of these vibrations, so that pictures and video from the Sparrowscope will be as stable as possible.
I’ve recently started on a major change to the way the Sparrowscope works, and if my experiments continue to be promising, I’ll have something exciting to show you all soon.
