Idea for Challenge? (Much needed!) (saving the fishies!)

I don't know what gave me the idea.. lol, I remember watching a video about this a while back.. but just remembered it today out of the blue.

 

Basically, it'd need to be small scaled for now, but maybe ideas for the future companies! (and/or countries!) But I can't believe it's seriously gotten to this point... a garbage patch bigger than the size of Texas, in the Pacific Ocean! They find fish and birds as well, their stomaches full of the plastic they ate. (I mean, FULL.. it's more plastic than meat inside of the fish!) But anyways..onto the "Idea":

Anyone with a CNC mill taking paying/exchange jobs?

I'm looking around to see if anyone's got a 3-axis CNC mill they'd concider doing a job on? I'm trying to address the lack of parts for making the current RepRap "Mendel".

 I've been using silicone moulds and PU fast-casts for a couple of years, so if I can get someone to make a single version of each part on a mill (without undercuts/crossways holes) I can make multi-part moulds to cast replicas.

picky motors?

 So I'm a complete beginner at this. I know ohm's law and generally what components do, but I've never tried to put anything together yet.

Electric Bike - WIP

I'm starting work on an electric bicycle. I put an ad on Craigslist last night for a bike in any shape - and ended up getting two bikes for $20 that are in pretty good shape. One is missing a pedal... but that's all.

Hexapod Dance

Found this on www.roboticsindia.com . It must be pretty tough to make and programme such things.

Hehe, found something funny on youtube!

Hi everyone,

Whilst roaming on youtube, I found this kick-ass vid about CtC's first atempts at programming a PicAxe microcontroller... Little contrast to what he is up to now with Walter :p

N-joy

how to charge my robot's NiMH battery 24H/24

I hope your attention because I'd like your advice on how to load it !

Let's me explain:

I have a charger with delta peak A2Pro that loading my battery "when robot off . " http://www.net-loisi...peak-p1441.html

My goal is to let my robot over 24h/24 in order to use it when I want . "I did a test to determine the robot turned on autonomy without running , it is 8H . so if I go one week it is off !!!!"

Robot family picture

This is my complete robot family. 24 robots so far. Build over the last 15 years. Some of them are dead or incomplete. But most of them works.

A higher resolution image can be found in my flickr album, including tags of every single robot.
