It’s not ‘work’, but I created a geek photo booth with a Raspberry Pi that took peoples picture and made it look all pixellated like they were in an old-fashioned computer game. It was in an exhibition in a museum in Oxford from May to November last year. I’m quite proud of that.
I made a very special 3D print that was on display in Las Vegas last week at a very big exhibition. It was large and heavy and is the biggest 3D printing project I’ve made to date – so I think that’s my current favourite.

My favourite thing is an RFID music box for my house. The way it works is that I have a lot of little RFID tags (like what you find in an Oyster card, or contactless payment card) and each one corresponds to a playlist. Then I can choose the music I want to listen to by picking a token, putting it on my RFID music box and sitting back to listen. I like it because I don’t have to scroll through songs on my computer, it feels a bit more like choosing a CD, it’s fun to sort through things in the real world.
It can also be adapted to play songs depending on what oyster card has been put on it. I took it to a maker faire and tested all the visitors oyster cards. It was very funny to see grown ups making the music box play songs from Frozen.
