About

My name is Nathan, but on the internet I go by the alias of qwertyboy. Turns out that qwertyboy is a fairly common username, so I sometimes go by qwertyboy12. However, when I signed up for YouTube back in 2007, all other qwertyboys were evidently “taken”. Unfortunately, I was young then, and went with the obnoxiously-long username of qwertyboy1234567899. I really don’t like it, but oh well. I almost always use my “QB” logo for my profile pictures, so you should be able to tell if it is me or not.

I am a senior at Michigan Tech studying electrical engineering, and am really enjoying it. Winter is my favorite season, so the weather up there (we got over 200 inches of snow last winter!) is great for me. I like to design (and build) lots of things. For example, my friend and I built an adjustable bike ramp for an Instructables contest. We were runners-up. Most of my work is in electronics, however. I’ve built an 8x8x8 LED cube, am finishing up a power supply project, started building a quadcopter, and use my Arduino Uno quite a bit for prototyping.

I post files for my projects on github, upload videos to YouTube fairly regularly, and am quite active here.

  1. Hi nathan I’m justin, at WIZnet in Korea.
    We have been searching some application references in which WIZnet solution is applied, and found your project “Dorm Room RGB LED Strip Installation“ using Ethernet Shield. In the Ethernet Shield WIZnet’s W5100 chip is embedded. Your development looks very cool & smart.
    Recently we opened WIZnet Museum (http://wiznetmuseum.com) site. This is a academic-purposed collection of open projects, tutorials, articles and etc from our global customers.
    If you are O.K. we would like to introduce your projects in here. Hopefully, you will allow this.

    Also, if you are interested, we would like to send the Ethernet shield of our latest chip version, W5500 or WiFi Shield. You may be able to establish another project with them.

    Hopefully, keep contacting us for the friendship.

    Thank you very much

    • Thanks for getting in contact, you are welcome to feature my project on your site! It looks like there are already quite a bit of neat projects on there. Would you like me to provide any additional details on the project? I’m also interested in the WiFi Shield, maybe I could upgrade this project and make it wireless.
