Biography
Ray is a 16 year old, Grade 11 student from Richmond BC. Ray has always had a passion for Engineering and Science. Since the age of 6, he has built a wide collection of gadgets and contraptions of various functions ranging from solar powered robots to wrist mounted flamethrowers. At the age of 8, his parents got him his first soldering iron. It was a 60 watt soldering iron which started him off in his journey in the world of engineering, building different circuits, lasers, and coil guns. When he was nearly 10, he decided he needed a computer, so he built his own computer from two junked computers, swapping the motherboard and the PSU. Now, at the age of 16, he takes on much more advanced projects, such as a 2500 watt electric motorcycle, a fully liquid cooled computer, a personal DIY Laser Cutter, and a solid state musical Tesla Coil. Ray intends to study mechatronics engineering in the future and turn his interests into a career. Ray hopes that his passion for designing, building, and inventing will one day contribute to the betterment of humankind and becoming a step closer to the technological singularity.

Microcontroller Controlled Laser Area Denial (M-CLAD)
Challenge:Innovation
Category:Senior
Region:Greater Vancouver
City:Richmond, BC
School:R C Palmer Secondary
Abstract:In the M-CLAD project, a fully autonomous robot which uses a computer controlled laser to repel animals or incapacitate humans by causing temporary blindness and disorientation was developed. The device utilizes motion detection and tracking software to track a moving target. A laser is then aimed at the location of the target to repel and discourage the entity from advancing further into the restricted area.
