“Vector“: Thrust Vector Control (TVC) for Amateur Rockets
“Vector” is a project that consists of three main parts: the mechanical gimbal structure, the Fly computer, and the thrust motor. For the mechanics, “Vector” is made of two gimbals that control the X and Y rotation of the motor holder in the 3D space. And the structure was 3d printed with a material density setting that is strong enough to perform the function while light enough to allow the motor to be able to generate enough force. The Fly computer has an Arduino nano act as the CPU, a classic MPU 6050 gyroscope, and a battery. The Fly computer collects the attitude data be used to adjust the rocket thrust direction in real-time. The motor was made to have an optimized thrust curve using KNSB.

“Glove World“: Wearable Reaction Game Glove
“Glove World” is a Cyberpunk-themed game device that randomly lights up the LED stripe on fingers, the player must press the buttons on the corresponding finger in order to get points. The Arduino UNO would decide if the hit was valid and display the score of each round on the LCD screen.
