Portfolio of our projects
Cloud Database Application for Morbern Inc.
Industrial secure cloud database application, where the main goal is to eliminate all paper forms across the company and gain complete control over each step of the work in process (WIP). This allowed substantial savings in terms of lost time and raw materials. Uses Knack (knack.com) platform and AWS infrastructure.

Granted US Patent Number 9183818
Live performance laser show for keyboard players. Created all software, firmware, electronics and enclosure. If you would like to see the confidential video demo in action, please email us at [email protected]
Handheld Laser Projector Prototypes
Two units created. Extracted the optical engine from a Samsung SP-H03 and Optoma PK-202 Pico Projectors, and reversed engineered them to replace all LEDs by lasers for high power output. Created an optical coherence despeckler by using a vibrating diffuser.
Ultra-Compact 600mW RGB Laser
How much punch can we fit in such a small device?! We’ve been the first to build such a system with analog modulation.
Single Lasers and Power Modulators
Can provide up to 1.5 Amp to a laser diode, and reach 60KHz analog modulation speed.
RGB Triple Laser Diode Modulators
Integrated triple version of the above for compact systems.
600mW Dual Violet Laser
Using a polarized beam combiner to double a laser module’s output power. Developed a custom ultra-simple magnetic precision mechanism for alignment.
GoPro Battery Extender
Enjoy 5+ hours of non-stop recording for only $8 CAD instead of 1.5h for the $30 stock GoPro battery. Thanks to the powerful 18650 rechargeable lithium ion cells.
Magnetic e-Probing System
For quick setup of an electronic probing system, with dual-axis micro-positionning thumb screws.
Universal Motor Drive Experimental PCB
This board allows experimenting with several motor driver topologies: half-bridge, full-bridge, 2 to 4 phases, stepper motors, DC, brushless, reversible, PWM, etc. Can also be used to implement uC-based switching power supplies.
Camcorder Battery Extender
No more missed videos with this twin cell modification of the stock Sony battery. Can reach over 6h of non-stop recording, even while using the LCD screen.
Helmet Communicators Battery Extender
Uses the lithium ion 14500 cell and a voltage booster to power the Sena communicator device through micro USB connector. Can get an extra 8h of talk time.
Our USB to ILDA converter for laser graphics projection. Connects to a RGB projector and can do up to 60KPPS with 24-bit analog color.
ILDA 8 bit DAC for Laser Projectors
Basic low cost version of the above, driven by LPT port.
Lab-Grade Analog Bipolar Adjustable Power Supply
Specifically designed for laser diode evaluation and development. Ultra-stable output and the precision voltage adjustment can go down to a true zero, unlike most other supplies.
Laser Projector Galvanometers Kit
DIY laser projector kit for hobbyists. Allows learning the basics of PID closed-loop position control. Can do 16KPPS scan rate.
Mobile Radio Communications and 911 for Washingthon DC
Contributed to the creation of the world’s largest 911 system installation: Washington DC. Also coded the firmware on several Motorola products in their mobile communication equipment line.
RFID PoE Dual Antennas for Ottawa Paramedics
Custom designed a twin RFID antenna for real-time location of Ottawa Paramedics’ assets both in the building and on the road.
RFID PoE Single Antenna
A single version of the above antenna.
RFID Proximity Asset Locator
For manual tracking of assets in a large manufacture. Runs on Raspberry Pi and uses WiFi to connect to the database. Written in C and Python under Linux Raspbian.
Mass Spectrometer Sniffer Prototype
Scientific project for a new type of luggage sniffer, to find illegal or dangerous substances.
Silos Auckland Christmas Tree Laser Advertisement
Sponsors from Aukland, New Zealand could illuminate the famous the silos (Silo Park) with greeting messages using high-power system we’ve designed for Virtualight.
Polysix Vintage Analog Synthesizer Restoration
Salvaged a dead Polysix from the garbage and brought it back to life. Lots of analog and digital circuitry had to be debugged and repaired.
AX60 Vintage Analog Synthesizer Restoration
Another beautiful piece of vintage technology that we’ve restored to a “better than new” state. Fixed overheating negative power supply by adding external custom circuitry.
Microscope to Camera Adapter
3D printed utility device to hook up a Sony RX100 MkII camera on a microscope.
iPhone Swivel Stand

JTAG Pogo Pins Prog Pad
Utility device that uses spring loaded pogo pins to allow uploading new code to a device that doesn’t have JTAG pins due to lack of space. Note the matching pattern below the PCB.
Vintage Tube Amp Repair
Fixed and re-biased an old tube amb. Learned to respect those 450 volts everywhere inside.
