My New Robot Ideas

     Hi all, I have been mostly a silent observer (http://letsmakerobots.com/node/3817 is the exception). Anyways, a few days ago after talking to a CIA tech genius about robotics and the field of electronics I was inspired to build something again. I dont want it to be a small little bot that once the novelty wares off is imediatly sent to a shelf. I want it to be something slightly usefull, fun, and constantly runing. I have two cats and it would be excellent if this robot was like another pet.

Multi Temperature Sensor Reading and Recording Device

The video shows what it does, but I will explain again here. It establishes a serial connection. When one of the switches is flipped it starts collecting data from the temperature sensor once every however long I want it to be for how ever many times I would like it to take temperatures...or until it runs out of memory. When the other switch is tripped it shoots the data out into the debug window. The other sensors' data is random numbers It works better if you take data from a sensor that is actually connected :P. I have to get more of the sensors.

Robot

Im off to buy An RC car to create a robot first basic things (pre defined movement) then logic

 

Im will use an arduino Duemilanove
