An amazing creator Chad Hoku @Hokuprops

Hokuprops is amazing and inspiring – we “met” in the Desk of Ladyada Twitch chat and here are some link, photos, videos and more – including (the first ever?) a NeoPixel prosthetic eye ….

Growing up with a creative father inspired a young Hoku to become a creator himself. Starting from his childhood with small props, he realized his passion and persevered as he grew. This drive continued on to his education, when he started at the Gnomon School of Visual effects to learn 3-D modeling from the best of the best in the industry. He later went on to graduate from the University of Riverside with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business and Arts Management. While making was his main devoted interest, it wasn’t until 2011 that he could make the leap to professional maker and has never looked back. A workplace accident took his left eye, but fortunately not his life. Despite his new handicap, Chad was immediately figuring out how to turn it from a disadvantage to yet another creative outlet, looking for ways to make LED eyes and finding some new eye patches to complete his new look. He is a devoted . His work has taken his career into several niches of engineering, all of which he has taken in stride and used to make his creations better and better.
