Community Update

I thought it time for a quick update and share some things going on with the YouTube channel and MKME Community lately. The last few months have been extremely busy. A lot has gone on in the “background” and I’m excited to say that the next few months should bring more updates, announcements, new initiates and video development than any time in the history of the MKME community. Sometime in late Q3/early Q4 2016 you will see this work start…

DJI Phantom- Cinematic Video Right Out Of The Box!

Recently I purchased the DJI Phantom 3 Standard quad/drone for getting some better footage for my YouTube videos.  I was very impressed with the results right out of the box.  As I have a history in the RC hobby it was really easy to get flying in a few minutes with the only setup of note being the basic firmware update. One thing I will cover in a later video- If you have R/C experience with planes, helicopters or quad copters…

Trip to Hackaday #SuperCon- Vlog

A while back I decided to make some Vlog videos for the channel in an attempt to get better at video making and editing.  Last weekend I made a trip to the Hackaday Super Conference in San Francisco so I took a pile of video throughout in hopes of making some Vlog coverage. This is the first Vlog of the weekend on my way to the SuperCon and the party at the Supplyframe office on Friday night. I hope you enjoy…

Urban Kitchen Garden With Arduino ?>

Urban Kitchen Garden With Arduino

Recently I converted a counter-top wine cooler into a DIY kitchen garden for growing just about anything in my own home.

I found commercial products to significantly lack the control and enclosed-nature I desired to grow what I want, when I want without buying their proprietary seeds/pods/modules. The unit can control the temp, humidity and…
