About: This is Cyrus Tabrizi's project page. Here, you will find the latest and greatest about my builds and creations, including a handheld Arduino interface called the Handuino, a remote-control trash-collecting marine robot called the RiverCleanser), and a fully RC Lego Tow Truck that weighs 12 pounds and takes Lego to the limits of proper Technic technique. Just about everything you see 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
