...oh, and they also should want to work with us.

We have a few positions open we want to fill with people that have a good sense of humour, have some geek qualities, and can tell the difference between a diode and resistor (or sincerely want to learn!)

Here are the types of
people we're looking for:

  • ubergeek specializing in microcontrollers &
    other clever electronics. Atmels, PICs, and Stamps, oh my! Oh, and
    discrete electronics experience is always a plus. Want to impress us?
    Show off some 'bots & projects. Did I mention the fully-furnished
    R&D lab you get to share? Even has Sherline Lathes and Mills to
    better make projects with!

  • Purchaser/Coordinator/Ass't Manager. There's lots
    going on here, so we're looking for a person that is comfortable with
    tracking inventory, placing POs, and making sure they arrive and get
    processed appropriately. In addition, this person will be the
    administrative "Left Hand" (the "right-hand" position is already

So if you have a sense of humour (an absolute
necessity - we like to working with people who like coming to work),
don't mind a dog and an occasional after-school child, and want to join
us up here in the Great White North (where it's truly beautiful), drop us a line
with your resume, your contact information, and if applicable, a
link to your website. (Solarbotics/HVW Technologies is a non-smoking workplace)

Painted GraviTrack

We always enjoy seeing our products being modified, revamped and DIY-ed, as well as the results of these transformations. Our customer Vera Kark provided us with some thoughtful feedback on adding mechanical tweaks to improve our Solar GraviTrack build and documentation. She also painted the brown MDF of the machine. She used tempera paint on the wood components still in panelized […]

FUSES! We've got FUSES!

So why do we suddenly have over 100 kinds of fuse for the website? It's one of the easier products for us to bring across from our Active Tech Calgary store location into our website. Start with the easy stuff, then ramp up. Increase power gradually, so you don't blow a... well you know...
