MEEP! WhoMe? In Progress
Well, here is step 1.
Been working on getting what to me is a major step. Right now, Arduino is sweeping the a servo with a Ping ))) mounted on it. Got that working and feeding back readings in in millimeters. Those are currently being fed into a simple graphing setup in Processing. It's right nice.
Major thanks to Myc for help.
Named inspired because someone said it resembled Beaker (muppet)
Current Results: Those curves are scan and rescan of a cup that was in the way.
