About: This is Cyrus Tabrizi's project page. Here, you will find the latest and greatest about my creations and research, including a 3D-printed robotic drivetrain, a handheld Arduino interface called the Handuino, and a remote-control trash-collecting marine robot called the RiverCleanser). Practically everything here is of my own creation and design, so if the articles and videos I've made aren't enough to satisfy your curiosity or if you have any comments or questions, make sure to drop me a line! Happy building! –Cyrus
