Processing mapping project

Project verview: 

 

mapping system using serial comms and processing 

 

 

I can do the coding and datbase side of things, hardware will be dependant on everyones robots but i use arduino and plan to go n to a beagle board i nthe long run and Cris uses pic so we should be able to make this pretty portable for everyones projects.

 

At the moment im working on a nice GUI(Graphical User Interface) to make it easier to see whats happening and hopefully cut down on development time.

 

Ideas anyons time :D

Idea for shift register circuits?

So, I've recently mastered the use of shift registers and have a handful of them laying around.(74HC595's)

Any project Idea about what I might build with them?(possibly something out of track)?

What I mean by this is not knight riders or led cube circuits, rather some whacky ideas - even abstracts will do.

Possibly some fancy circuit you have in mind?

I am not asking for schematics, just running low on inspiration..Any ideas??

Oh and I don't mind using my arduino along with it(As it is what I have!)

Price: $3.8 USD

These custom-made-for-Solarbotics coils offer a strong electromagnetic kicks for creating motion from interations with magnets. We LIKE these! Read more

LMR T-Shirt Fundraiser

The time has come! As promised I am now working on an LMR T-Shirt.

After my sucess printing my own shirts I am now familiar with the system and know how to get these printed cheap. I will be using the same system, TeeSpring, so remember that this is all crowdfunded and much like a 'kickstarter' campaign. All profits that will be raised are being donated to the masters of LMR to help them in their tremendous efforts to keep this site going and also to the upgrade process to LMR V4.

   UPDATE Right, i'll try and explain the idea            when the other leg is rotated in the opposite direction the same happens.   I found that the … Read more
