TouchOSC + Ipad + Processing

I am just sharing something I am working on. I say it will be used to control some robots in the future. It may just turn out to be something I do for the heck of it. Any way.... Here is a video explaining a little of what I have. Basically the thing with using this setup is all the code is written on processing which can read the input from the app and output data to the app also. This could be used to control a robot via xbee and display information back to the  user on the app. I may write a tutorial on this in the near future.

Taranzilla - Solar Charger

To make use of my new purchased parts I just tried to build a solar charger based on a Miller solar engine. The circuit found here (thanks ignoblegnome) and it's very easy to build. I used the simple circuit with just 1x transistor (PNP), 1x resistor, 1x diode, 1x LED, 2x solar panel and1x rechargeable battery 4,5V, solid wire, Polymorph, old cap.

Getting a Robot to Determine Its Own Truth

This piece describes an approach I am working on for an upgrade to SuperDroidBot “Anna” and a sharable brain service I am working on.  This is obviously only ONE approach to getting a robot to have a concept of truth.
