So, a lot has happened in these last two weeks.
So much that it hardly feels like two weeks.
I feel like it’s the middle of the term already…
Probably because it is…
Two midterms next week…
So where do I start?
Might as well start on the 26th or the day after.
(I’ve decided to take pictures of almost everything meaningful that happens, else I tend to forget…)
Pickles I made from carrot, daikon, cucumber, ginger, and garlic in vinegar, sake, soy sauce, and mirin.
Why is it always food…?
Dessert after dinner at the Pan Pacific hotel during the Think Engineering 2014 networking event. It was interesting meeting so many people and hearing stories from the side of those who hire.
A second version of the paper lamp. This time with some curl to the wings. Still not as I would like it… Wonder what kind of fold pattern on the wings would make it curl nicely?
A stand we made for the soldering iron on the cutter machine. It is now capable of automatically soldering paper to polymer.
A collection of the things we made for the lamp. Still working on it…
Other than that, it was mainly school.
Homework, studying, etc.
Which I should honestly be doing right now.
Anyway, also got a job for my next work term starting May.
A very small company which is working in conjunction with Computer Science and Electrical and Computer Engineering UBC to develop ideas for a smart home.
It works in the areas of machine vision, sensor systems, and embedded systems.
The company name is NZ Technologies and I will be a Embedded Systems Research Engineer there starting May.
The project I’ll be working on is the People and Planet Friendly Home Initiative.
Looks interesting and I look forward to what I’ll be tasked with!
A large melamine coated sheet of 1/2 in board. Quite a good whiteboard for $40.
