Digilent On Instructables: Part Three

You may have seen our first post or second post with the names and Instructables handles of our wonderful project creators. The hope is that this will make it easier for anyone to find people and projects that they are inspired by.

Today we continue our profiles with three more authors!

Quinn: quinnsullivan

Quinn introduces herself on Instructables as:

I am an apparel merchandiser who found comfort in the world of electronics after discovering a passion for making projects with copious amounts of glitter. Every day I work on learning and uncovering novel solutions that guide me towards solving life’s little problems. My optimism and two rescue puppies have kept me sane throughout this endeavor as I figure out how to blend two diverse backgrounds in fashioning something amazing that will eventually lead to world domination.

And with her awesome projects, including a dancing snowman and DIY Monster Book of Monsters, that goal of world domination may not be too far off. Quinn also has some handy guides for Makers both on her Instructables page and on the blog.

Her innovate and often adorable projects are great for anyone who wants to do a creative and clever project or learn more about the world of making!

Tommy: tommy.kappenman

Tommy’s projects primarily utillize FPGA, and he has worked with the Zybo, the chipKIT MX7, the Nexys 4, and more! Many of his projects also involve and audio component, such as his Nexys 4 Audio Looper. He has even made a Human Jukebox!

Nate: NAEastland

Nate also works with a lot of FPGA, however he also has Instructables that pertain more to 3D printing and microcontrollers. He balances his technical skill with creative ideas to make his projects.

His LED Sparkler project uses the chipKIT uC32.

He has worked with PetaLinux, analog circuits, and Verilog HDL. He is a fan of applying theories that he has learned to projects, and has this interest has heavily informed his career decisions!

Throughout high school I began to look for ways that I could apply the theory I had learned. I chose to pursue engineering so that my interest in applied sciences could be used to solve real world problems.

Hopefully this post has helped you find some awesome projects and authors. As always please feel free to comment below with your thoughts and even your own Instructables profile so we can check out your projects as well!
