Brixel PKI

PKI ProjectPicture.png
In order to use SSL certificates and other security things, it is better to have complete control of the infrastructure.


E-gauges ProjectPicture.jpg
This project aims to replace the various gauges in the center panel of my Corvette with sleeker, modern ones that can be fitted in a smaller area, freeing up the center console for an entertainment/navigation unit.


Chauffeino ProjectPicture.jpg
Intelligent central heating solution, based on Arduino-based wireless thermostats and a Linux-powered central controlling unit, in order to manage different temperature zones within a house. The system will not require any substantial setup, and just figure out the optimal parameters as it goes.

Openvpn & DNS server to allow seamless resolving of custom TLDs/domains.

Openvpn-w-custom-dns ProjectPicture.png
Openvpn is used for redirecting traffic which is really handy. But sometimes you want to go the extra mile, like when you want to resolve custom domains. The combination of Openvpn & Bind9 allows us to do just that.

Raspberry pi camera mount ProjectPicture.jpg
The goal of this project is to create a camera mount for the raspberry pi. The camera will be able to pan and tilt via servo-engines.

To do: -3D model -Arduino code -Python code -Web gui

-Android app

Bottle rocket

Waterrocket 11.JPG
Using a conversion piece to connect a normal soda bottle to a gardena coupler, we can add air pressure to the bottle (with a bicycle pump), and then release it so it flies away.

The musicbox should be able to stream music from Google Music (or other streaming services) and show controls and artwork on the optional LCD-display

Authentication using NFC

No project picture.png
NFC laat toe om via wireless-communicatie (al dan niet via bluetooth) bepaalde acties uit te voeren op mobile devices. Met behulp van NFC-kaartjes en een Arduino (of dergelijke) en een NFC-shield moet het mogelijk zijn om deze te gebruiken voor een authenticatie/"Open the door"-systeem.

Local Node Red server

No project picture.png
The Brixel HQ has the potential to have a lot of sensors, but since we don't want to have them each individually connect to a specific service, we need a local node red server. Node red is an IoT hub, which you can run locally. It has a web interface, and can be integrated with various IoT-device brokers (like MQTT).

Wouters 6 bay full tower Computer Casemod

Computer Casemod ProjectPicture.jpg
I was looking for a new computer case for my new desktop (internals still need to be picked). After looking around I wasn't satisfied with the value per € of new cases. I remembered I had a 6 bay full tower on the attic at my parents place. The case used to house a webserver and arrived with a tape drive (iirc). I've got no idea who manufactured this case, but the ABS front panel does show that it was molded in 1999. So now I'm painting the sides, cutting a shape in one side and putting plexi behind it. I'm also replacing the standard ABS front plate with a "grill"/mesh structure to complete this style overhaul.
