RoboProgrammer - Automated AVR (or PIC etc) programmer
Well, recently, I needed to have a bunch of AVRs programmed... A big bunch... And as I am really bored on repeated procedures I decided to make a robot to do this for me. You can see the outcome on the video.
I used an Arduino Duemilanove as the programmer (ArduinoISP) and a GRoboduino as the controller. I also wrote a C# program on PC to control the firmware "playlist".
