Modern pools have more features, and need to control more valves, pumps and accessories. The RAVE (Relay And Valve Expansion) Interface allows coordinated control of additional valves and relays when the pool controller's own ports are full. Coming 2018!

A few months ago, I started building a replica DSKY. I'm 3D printing the parts, but my goal is to make them as true to original as possible, but with modern electronics. From time to time, I circle around on this project and push it forward a bit, and when I do, I try to remember to make a blog post for the latest news. This is a pretty cool and involved projects, so be sure to check out my blog for news and more details.

My boys and I made an automated, Raspberry Pi-based Halloween Photo Booth. Building on previous projects like our RGB LED Strip Sequencer, we built all of the electronics and supporting software, and did all of the construction. Check out the full write-up, with videos.

This is the web home of my many projects. My name is Patrick Rigney, and I'm an entrepreneur and technology geek with over 35 years experience in high-tech. These days, I've hung up my tie and have gone back to my technical roots, doing projects for personal enjoyment, primarily, and occasionally for remuneration (but it still has to be fun). Feel free to browse, of course. If you're looking for something specific, see the navigation menu at the top of the page, or use my contact form to drop me a note and just ask.Read more...
Within a week of packing the Halloween Photo Booth up for the year, two ideas were realized in circuit form. The first is what I am calling LightShow16, a 16-channel hardware PWM LED driver board. The second is PiUPS, a UPS for Raspberry Pi.Read more...
