Alex Bandar is a PhD metallurgist by day and aspiring kinetic artist by night. His embedded control interests involve a 68HC11 which he's using to replicate biologically dynamic motions (insect wings flapping, flowers blooming, eyes moving) as well as functional "steampunk" art. He maintains a studio at Milo Arts in Columbus, OH. | Personal Website

One of the reasons I'm tinkering with embedded control is that I'd like to make mechanical devices move, and move with a certain intelligence (i.e. informed by sensors, or following a prescribed program, etc). This is at least a two-part goal, with an embedded control component, and a mechanical fabrication component.

With respect to the fabrication side - I'd like to make these sculptures / objects / mechanisms out of metal, and I'd like them to look pretty interesting, too. Thus, I've...

Hello! I'm happy to be blogging on Comments and feedback appreciated!

Here's a little background on me....

My name's Alex; I received my PhD in Materials Science and Engineering a couple of years ago, and now I professionally write computer models to predict how metals react/perform when formed, heated, quenched, etc. (Yes, there's a job for people who do that. Lucky for me!) I performed my graduate studies at the Institute for Metal Forming at Lehigh University...
