When i told my little brother's boss that i was starting to make robots, he answered me "well, i used to do a lot of electronics when i was younger, i may have some stuff that could be useful to you", and i was like cool, i'm gonna have a bunch of resistors... And that's what he gave me :
So that's big bunch of stuf, i have even no idea about what half of those stuff are for, but i'm sure i'll figure out soon enough ^^
Those stepper motors look pretty cool :
even if i don't know how to use them, and can't find any datasheet.
I also have that "mercury-switch" :
25 of those LM324N :
it seems that they are "Low Power Quad Operational Amplifier", whatever it means...
I also have a dozen of those things :
but i don't have the slightest idea about what it is.
Add to that gears, bumper switches and switches of all sorts, leds and plenty of other cool stuff!
So i was already quite happy, but cherry on the chicken, i also received my SRF05 that i ordered last monday from Active Robots (very fast shipping!):
So robotically speaking, that was a pretty cool day! :D
