A creative electronics engineer who loves LEDs and ART ❤ Started with a curiosity of how things work to actually designing things I love which may solve problems for many too. For me, design is like a master key to everything. It is the most powerful thing in this world. A good design is a bliss.
I am a developer + artist based in Delhi, India. I am part of India's first maker spaces, Maker's Asylum where I do magic - create stuff that amazes a few. I work on Electronics, Software, AR/VR and not to forget, wood-working and laser-cutting. I love creating open-source projects.
I am currently pursuing my Master of Fine Arts degree in Design and Technology from Parsons School of Design (The New School), New York
I completed my undergraduation in Electronics and Communication Engineering from Guru Tegh Bahadur Institute of Technology (Affiliated to Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University, Delhi) with distinction.
I completed my Class XII under Central Board of Secondary Education with an aggregate of 92.4% and stood first in Computer Science with a score of 99%
I lead the Electronics Lab at Maker's Asylum, Delhi (One of India's biggest makerspaces). Here I conduct various workshops and run community driven projects.
I worked as an intern where I designed various products and conducted workshops on Electronics. Moreover, I got to learn about numerous fabrication techniques and styles.
I worked as maker-in residence where I designed various products and conducted workshops on Arduino and interactions.
One of the best feeling in the world is - when you are recognised by your name. When you achieve something. When people love being with you. When people love working with you. When people respect you as a person. When you love your work. These are the most precious feelings which can't be bought.
This project presents a haptic glove display designed to act as a sensory substitution device. Primarily, it communicates navigation directions from point A to point B in the form of vibration patterns to the person riding a bike or driving a car. The display comprises 16 haptic feedback motors placed on a glove that relays the information to the user as static, spatial, and sweeping haptic feedback. The haptic feedback also varies in intensity to communicate soft or hard feedback. Moreover, it can act as an extension to our present human sensory system in ways that we can perceive data directly on our body without having our visual attention diverted on screens. The addition of a 9-DoF IMU to this glove will enable its use in virtual reality applications, enabling bidirectional communication between the system and the user. Other uses include data perception, music perception, interactive video feed, and a haptic display for the vision-impaired people.
The world map is a 2 ft. X 3 ft. art installation where the
land in world map is depicted purely by 629 RGB LEDs in total. Took about a month
to build from concept to this shining piece of art. It is powered by an ESP32 and
requires about 100W of power at full
brightness and all LEDs lit as white colour. It is conceptualised with an idea to
display any and every kind of animation and manipulate data all around the world.
Some data manipulations could be as follows-
• Displaying world weather data relayed from weather stations all around the world.
• Showing up current location of International Space Station
• When someone tweets you from anywhere around the world that tweet location web will be displayed
• Your google location timeline could also be pin pointed taking your google account to get your location history.
Ring-O is a hardware device that resembles an ordinary ring,
that houses sensors and electronics inside a custom designed 3D printed ring to
give it the ability to control devices and render input. It can enable gesture
controls, for instance, as well as text input by drawing letters in the air,
gesture-based authorisation for payments, IoT enabled home device control, Music
Player controls and much more.
It won the Best Major Project 2018 at Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University, Delhi.
Bowie is an LED Bowtie designed to be used as a wearable in parties, DJs, etc. It is based on ATMega328 controller, WS2812 LEDs and a BLE. It has a highly optimised design and can run continuously for 12 hours. It houses an onboard charging ciruit as well, so, you can just plug in your regular micro usb charger to charge bowie. Bowie has 28 individually addressable LEDs which makes the real magic happen and can produce millions of colors at once.See Live
As they say A lot can happen over a coffee, so I and Utkarsh Kumar Gupta (my mentor) decided to build a unique coffee table which makes you go nostalgic having 8-bit games packed inside it along with other fun stuff. Some of games include Snakes, Tetris, Pong and Bricks with a music analyser an addition to the whole table.See Live
'Baksa' is an installation for The Lost Party which took place at Pune, Maharashtra, India in February of 2016. It one of grand music and arts festivals held in India. It was conceptualised by a team of four.Read More
One of my best projects so far. Component Tester is a universal tester for electronic components with a bunch of additional features such as Voltmeter, Frequency Generator and Counter, IR Code Decoder and much more. Some of the electronic components which can be tested are Resistors, Capacitors, Transistors, Inductors, MOSFETs and JFETS, IGBTs, Diodes and a few more...!!Read More
Costie is a smart LED table top coaster that reacts to changes in temperatures of objects kept on it. An easy to DIY LED coaster that costs only ₹1000 (~ $14) and offers you a variety of things. It has 3 working modes with smart object detection and recognition. When an empty glass or glass with liquid at room temperature is kept it turn on its rainbow colour mode where LEDs light up a circling rainbow pattern whereas when a hot or cold object is kept on coster it lights up in a circling red or blue pattern respectively.See Live
While arcade emulators aren’t exactly unique, they’re tons of fun, and that essentially is what drove me and my friend Gursehaj to build one at Maker’s Asylum Delhi. I teamed up with my friend Gursehaj, and showed up at the Asylum with a bag full of components. The heart of the machine is of course a Raspberry Pi, running an image of RetroPie.Read More
A collection of all shops providing electronic components,
hardware, tools and much more.
All these shops are tried by makers in community and have honest and authentic
It is a community driven application. For now it works for Delhi Region (India) only but can be further extended to all regions.
An application built for HackDTU. This application receives data from an API which receives it's data from two infrared sensors fixed at a chair, which detect a person's posture. The application accordingly sets the view to the current posture and, notifies you if the app is in background or not running. It also has a feature of reminding you for your medicines and your doctor's appointments. This project received 1st Runner Up position and startup accelrator worth $3600 from SendGrid.Read More
For all the superhero data you've needed.
Powerstats. Biography. Appearance. Work. Connections. Images.
From both the universes, and more.
The superhero API, is a quantified and programatically accessible data source of all superheroes from different comic universes. We've taken all the stuff and put it together in a form that is easier to consume with software. Then we made an API so you can consume it in a hassle free manner.
VibraDriver is a lifesaving product for you near and dear ones. So, it measures brain waves, analyze them determine a concentration score. Since the transition between the concentration is very fast, we only get a boolean value whether it's a yes or a no. So when the concentration level is low, you get an intimation on your Pebble Watch to drive safe. We also have an Amazon Alexa skill, which is supposed to be invoked when the user ends their rides and comes home/office. It gives them a summary of their rides and suggests future steps.See Live
Arduino boards by themselves are, of course, great for making a wide array of projects. Sometimes, however, you'll need to add other integrated circuits (ICs) for extra functionality. If you want to be absolutely sure that the IC you're using in your project is working correctly, this tester will input the signals to the device, and analyze the outputs that it produces on a 2.4" touchscreen.See Live
Surface is a smart device that can turn any surface into a
smart surface. It senses the knock
patterns on the surface it is attached to and performs the repective task assigned
that knock pattern.
It uses smart knock detection technique using an accelerometer and is intelligent enough to distinguish between knocks and noise taps or thumps.
I designed this home automation system to fit inside a regular
8 channel switch board. Each channel in capable of AC dimming at 240V. Along with
this each channel can handle 8 Amperes of current.
The board is based on ESP32 and gives the board WiFi connectivity to be able to control each channel via WiFi. I also developed an Alexa skill to control the modules using Alexa. Later on it can also be integrated with google assistant.
