New robot being planned

Hi,

It's been a long time. However, I'm finally getting out of my house and moving into a motorhome.

However, until I can convince my girlfriend to join me, I will be lonely in the driver's seat. So I'm planning on making a droid head and put it on top of an old chassis that I found that is tall enough. I want to put this robot in the passenger seat and make comments about the other drivers. And perhaps my driving. :)

This may be the first robot programming entirely in the Swift programming language.  I programmed it as an example of what can be done using Swift with the new … Read more

Quadruped Sneak Peak!

In the Grapes of Wrath, there was a turtle that had a lot of symbolism, and in English class, you can basically do anything for the final project. So I thought, what the heck, I'll just play my strengths! Below is a rough CAD using 3d-printed parts and MG996R servos. Electronics are not really shown, shell is not missing (like there's a CAD of a salad bowl out there), and the head has been remodified to have a more "turtle" look. Photos of the final product coming soon.

Biped Howto: Moving servos

+++ UPDATE (12-march-2014): Rename title as "Biped Howto".

Hi, I will try to explain, in a very simplistic manner, the way in which servo motors can be controlled.

Servo motors are controlled by a PWM signal, in which the active part of the signal (known as duty cycle) define the amount of degrees the servo will rotate.
