A 1:150th scale model of the USS Alaska (CB-01) powered by a Raspberry Pi 3. It is capable of propulsion and self-guidance. It also features a compressed air system and functional turrets to propel biodegradable airsoft rounds at targets. Painted with her Atlantic camouflage color scheme.
The 3rd iteration of a remotely controlled submersible vehicle powered by a Raspberry Pi 2. The motivation behind this project is to create a platform that can be used to explore underwater environments in search of aquatic life despite a lack of in-situ observations via baited sampling. The Mk.3 unit maximized the use of off-the-shelf hardware to minimize the printing requirements.
Identify intruders and alert residents of possible threats
Aggregate and display information on an unobtrusive display.
The Python Open Computer Vision module aids in both functions. OpenCV constructs a digital model of scene and uses mathematical operations to assess the threat posed by any motion. If a threat is detected when the residents are asleep or not home, an alert will be issued and pictures of the intruder will be automatically uploaded to the cloud.

Dangerous, therefore, is it to take shelter under a tree, during a thunder-gust. It has been fatal to many, both men and beasts.
