luminet-jacket

LumiNet takes the conventions of a central processing unit, such as an Arduino, handling most of the workload and spreads the responsibility across a series of parallel ‘LumiNet modules’ which only depend on the four modules directly connected to it.

Steampunk Iron Man Costume

iron-man-steampunk

This Steampunk Iron Man Costume has me in a dilemma. My first thought when I saw this was that I would love to see Steampunk Iron Man take on Sherlock Holmes in a good old fashion fight to the death. I don’t know why. Maybe it’s the underlying Victorian style of both characters. But then I realized this dream would ... Read More »
