It's me


Arnab Kumar Das the Crazy Engineer.

I, Arnab Kumar Das aka. Crazy Engineer is an Indian Electronics and Communication Engineer, I love to travel, eat good food and Make Crazy Gizmos. I was born and bought up in West Bengal, Incredible India. I have keen interest in electronics and gadgets since I was a young boy and have had many amazing mentors throughout my journey. As a kid I used to open up every appliance I used to found. I got early knowledge about electrical circuits and appliances from my father. I got my first solder iron at the age of 13 after that I started making DIY circuits. My first notable project at the age of 14 was “CLAP SWITCH” that switches on and off any appliances by a clap sound. And my crazyness continued……

While obtaining my B. Tech (Hons) degree from Lovely Professional University, Punjab, India, I started making YouTube videos, which opened a door I never dreamed of.

I have put up videos of different projects that I have done during my engineering degree and now planning for making Tutorial and other Crazy DIY guides. I love sharing knowledge and I think YouTube and this Blog is one of the best way to share. My friends calls me Crazy Engineer seeing my passion for technology and electronics.

I also have participated at numero us Tech Fest and competitions including national as well as international events. I have experience in Analog electronics, Embedded Electronics and also Mechanical Stuffs like Go-Kart and E-Bike designing.

I can't live without my tools and hardwares. I am obsessed over well-decorated and well-lit spaces. In my free time I love doing Photography. I love warm weather, technology and friends. I Dream of being an inventor and doing good for world citizens.

As I keeps exploring the new directions technology taking me, I truly hopes you will follow my journey and be a part of it!
