My name is Nikodem Bartnik. I am maker so I like making things, making everything, but mainly electronics, robots, programs (applications, games and robots soft) for some time I also play with 3D printing. Everything that I made is public on the internet, on my youtube channel and on instructables. I recently set up Facebook fanpage so if you want to be up to date with what I am doing, or just support my work, go there and push that like button. If you are searching for more pro info about me check out my LinkedIn profile.
Project that I am most proud of is drone made from scratch by me, literally everything in this project is made by me. It was a huge challenge for me, but I like challenges, I am addicted to them :) Ludwik (that’s the name of my drone) won 3 prizes in international contests, 2 in Poland and a lot of people like this project a lot, huge thanks to them!
FollowBot it’s a robot that follows red objects i.e. ball. It do it by android app that I write (yes, I also program in java, sorry) it recognize red objects and drive to robot to be in same distance from the object. Sounds simple? Nothing more wrong! As with the drone, huge huge challenge for me, but I didn’t give up, only weak people are giving up!
All of my construction together won 10 contests 7 from that was international. They were published on famous sites like Make Magazine, Adafruit, Atmel Makers, Arduino.cc. On instructables I have 872 000 views and on my youtube channel 338 000 views.
I am really creative person (sometimes even too much), hard working (sometimes even too much) and obstinate (It's probably even good). I definitely have more ideas than time to realize them all, even though I work almost all the time. My todo list already has 4 pages.
