I’m just some random kid who happens to be fascinated with this kind of stuff. I’m hoping to build up an archival transferring system both for other relatives and friends who are looking for true archival quality digitizations, and for myself with various “historical artifacts” and other nonsense. In fact I was working on my own film scanner, and even bought parts for it, but now that the Kinograph v2 project isn’t “publicly dead” I’ve put a hiatus on it. (I have absolutely zero good ideas to contribute so it’s not really worth talking about.) However, I am actively working towards a proper VHS digitization system.
This vision is a little challenging because I have a bunch of other unrelated projects on my plate. So much ideas, so little time…
I’m not really a hardware or electronics guy (although I do have a decent amount of Raspberry Pis, Arduinos, a collection of various components, and got a 3D printer a week ago), but my main “specialty” is in software programming. I am mostly experienced with Python (for about 5-and-a-half years), and have worked quite a bit with Java, web technologies (HTML, CSS, JS), and have touched a few other languages once or more.
