What did YOU do with your robot today?
Today I created a new robot game for the school kids to play. Its a variation of the game "Fetch" only with cans on both sides of the start box, instead of 2 cans only on the opposite side of the game board from the start box. The idea being that they would get a single point per can retrieved. So with 3 cans to choose from, to retrieve, on two different sides of the start box. It makes the game a little more challenging without being over the top difficult for new robot builders to play.
For those who don't know. My school groups always use Lego robotics kits for these games.
today I helped others with programming their robots
....also took some robot video and will edit it later and post it on youtube
You know what we did.
....they don't have robots like that in my part of the country!
Designing a robot for the AFRON "10 Dollar Robot" Design Challenge

I let ALF running on my desk for fun.
That little light in the bottom right and the photocell circuit that checks to see if the computer is on before it attempts to power it on. keeps the bugs away :P

It is a sweeping HCSR-04 ultrasonic sensor, using salte as the base.
