A photo posted by Ramiro Hernandez (@raifilh) on Nov 12, 2018 at 8:56am PDT Ramiros Hernandez, a Mexican software engineer, is one of the first artists to bring the internet to the people with the help of a small DIY electronics repair shop called Antique Electronics Supply.
The shop is open Monday through Saturday from 10am to 4pm.
In fact, it’s closed for the holidays.
“This is a hobby,” Hernandez told Mashable.
“I can’t even take pictures without being in a state of anxiety, but when I’m working on my project, I always have an outlet to go to.”
He has an electric keyboard and mouse he used to program his computer for years, and he uses his computer to write code to automate parts of his workflow.
“The thing I love about it is that I can’t see my work until I’ve finished it,” he said.
“It’s a place where I can create a new product and put it into production.
It’s like the internet of things.”
Hernandez works with a lot of different electronics companies.
“In a way, Antique is my hobby, because it’s a part of my life,” he added.
The hardware parts and components he repairs are typically for a single brand, such as a Raspberry Pi, which can run off a single battery, or for a variety of models, such a the Raspberry Pi 3, Pi 3+, or Raspberry Pi 2.
When I ask him if he likes to use his computers for other projects, he says he likes the idea of using the internet for creative things like programming.
“But it’s not just a hobby.
It can be a full-time job,” he told me.
The repair shop, which has an opening for a second year, has two other locations in San Diego and in Portland, Oregon.
But Hernandez wants to do more work on his home computer.
“My current project is a project for the internet,” he explained.
“When I’m done, I’ll be able to use my computer as an electronic photo frame.”
Hernandez says he doesn’t like using his computer as a tool to create software.
“You need to learn to use your computer to do what you want to do,” he says.
“What I love is that my project can be shared with the world.”
For his work on the internet, he uses the Raspberry PI 2, the Pi 3 and the Pi 2+.
“I’ve already learned to program with the Raspberry and with the Pi,” he explains.
“Because I don’t have any of those old computers, I was able to do some cool stuff.”
I asked Hernandez about the internet’s future and what it can bring.
“People are becoming very creative and they’re starting to learn new technologies,” he replied.
“Technology is becoming an increasingly important part of their lives.
We need to keep this in mind.”
