Feeling a bit chilly this Minnesota winter? πŸ₯Ά Sina Roughani sure was, so he decided to make a coat that keep him warm on even the coldest of days. Using tubing which he slid into pockets that line the entire interior of the jacket he will use a device that pumps warm air into these tubes. As Sina stated it will save some ducks and geese as their feathers are used for down in jackets.

Wish we could say winter is coming but it's already here!β˜ƒοΈ Join us this Wednesday in a microcourse holiday celebration as we drink hot chocolate, eat cookies and best of all solder some cool winter themed projects like a snowman and a PCB tree with lights! Bundle up and hope to see you there.

Inspired by the "Poor Mans Stabilizer" Sina Roughani was able to create a steady mount for his camera allowing him to create beautiful moving shots without any shakiness. This project took Sina only a day as he said all he needed were the pipes and Anderson Labs had everything else that he needed to get the stabilizer done. @ Anderson Student Innovation Labs - University of Minnesota
