About Ben Parnas

I have some ideas on how to fix that. They’re not very good ideas, but at least they’re ideas!

-Adam Savage, Mythbusters

Sometimes I hope that the ideas and designs I come up with will some day find a world-changing application. Until then, they will live here!


I started this site when I was a Engineering student at RIT, studying electronics and robotics. I spent 5 years there (4 years of classes +1 year working) destroying my social capabilities and replacing them with knowledge!  I found the lectures that my major offered to be an incomplete experience, so I spent most of my time outside of classes and coursework applying what I’d learned to various projects. In the end, it was the opposite that occurred – the projects helped me learn the concepts!

I work as an electrical engineer at Formlabs, designing the guts  state-of-the-art 3D printers. I hope to document non-sensitive things I’ve touched at my time here, as well as the small things I manage to find time for outside of working hours.

 Many of the projects on here may not have direct real-world applications, but with some tweaking, some might. And I hope that some day, I’ll be able to re-use them in a more practical manner – making some aspect of our insanely complex world a little more straightforward.
