Second set of eye's on a sn754410 driver setup

wired up

 

Note green LED(yes it's set up in the correct orientation and even when I hook up a vmeter I don't see a voltage) is not lit up.(red is power indicator) I feel like amature hour here with this simple circuit yet can't seem to get it to work. Tried 2 different chips. Recommendations are welcome...I only spent this morning looking at it....

Hackerspace and other things

I have been away for a while again :(.  But right now I am sitting at my desk sick as a dog.  I felt I should take this time to update my LMR.  I haven't been able to post my current projects on this site because of this.  Saskatoon TechWorks, a new hackerspace community that has been established.  This means that I will be able to share my knowledge and tools with other like minded individuals.  As an added bonus, I get to use awesome tools as well.

Please dont laugh this little guy off the planet. He was a very old robot kit Called Mr. Technoman I'll upload a picture of the box later for fun. The old robot was … Read more

The Ultimate Guide To Guides On Making Star Wars Robots

Long time lurker, first time poster, so let’s kick this off as most do with a quick bit About Me (They still call it that, right?!):

I’m a long time hobbyist. Started out on some smaller projects when I was younger and, as they say, the rest was history. I mostly have films to blame for this: watching stuff like The Terminator (hence the name) and Star Wars when I was (probably far too) young fascinated me and I’ve kinda been hooked ever since. 

So! Onto my first post:

     What motivated this post was my review for the Pixy CMUcam5 Image Sensor.      Actually the motivation was some issues that I had trying to make an … Read more
