I made a video about hexapods.

I made a video about hexapods! yay. I’d estimate it was a full 4 or 5 days working on it, learning final cut pro along the way. It basically covers my journey through 2.007 two years ago, and is meant to be a resource for students in the class.

“you draw nyquist with d-contour?”


One of my classmates made this last week. ^__^

In 6.302 (Feedback Systems) we’re supposed to have learned nyquist stability criterion (which, by the way, results in some fairly weird-looking plots[1]), and they were on the test today.

Of course, I’m about three weeks behind the class and just learning about root locus XD oops. Spring break = time to catch up on classes ?__?
