Control DC motors with a Grove H-Bridge and DynamixShield

I just uploaded a new video tutorial on how to use the Grove dual H-Bridge module with the DynamixShield and an Arduino Due to control DC motors.

Cutting Acrylic sheet

I've been asked how to cut acrylic with a hot wire cutter - I made my own and there are a few plans for how to do this on instructables etc. This was my take on the idea which I find works OK for me... - see the file attached

Botboarduino drivers

Ok guys it's been a while since I've been on I'm glad everything is picking back up.

I recently had to wipe my computer after getting a virus. Which means I lost all my drivers and code and etc. I managed to get arduino up and running but my botboarduino needs drivers to work. I'm kinda freaked out about catching another virus and I can't seem to find the correct drivers for ft232 uart. I tried one place but it keeps asking me for a password to open it. And when I point the device manager it refuses to see the zip file.

My artificial neuron approach

February 12, 2015

A single artificial neuron can represent some simple Boolean functions like OR, AND or NAND and some like XOR not, because a single artificial neuron can only learn linearly separable mappings.

Example. Perceptron for the AND function:

walks on two legs using four servos
this is the next evolutionary step from my trashbot version 1. i decided that i want to build more robots made from recycled mechanical parts instead of shaping … Read more
