Hello! Welcome to our Patreon page, thank you for being here! Research Reality is a culmination of years of work, exploration, time and love. This page is the bringing together of several projects facilitated by Mike (Doogie) and Elise. For several years Mike has run a DoogieLabs YouTube channel and website. He is an inventor, creator, professional tinkerer and mechanique extraordinaire. Elise is most often found behind the scenes, creating, making plans, writing and researching. You will see more of her here than on other platforms.
We hope to use this page to share our adventures, bring you on our travels, build cool stuff and grow a community of people who want to learn, create and share! Here, you will find all of our interests in one place! Everything from DoogieLabs including retro PC restoration and building, collecting old software and games, electronics projects, 3D printing, car projects including our Volkswagen Corrados, TDI Jetta, Albert the Vanagon (see a pattern here?), and so much more!
We plan to get a little more personal on Patreon also, sharing more about our daily lives, Pepper and Daytona and more from Elise. With your financial support we will be able to branch out and create even more content. We plan to travel and bring you live videos, and even meet some of you IRL. Your support will allow us to create more of a schedule for content and expand our community. We think we have come up with some unique, fun and interesting rewards for you all, we hope you agree! This is just the beginning, and we are so glad to have you with us as we move forward.
