QLF6 Totem Pole project (Step 1: DIY PCBs)

I've been tinkering on this blinky light project for awhile, almost a year now. I finally got around to etching the all-critical prototype PCB today. Maybe I can finally get this show back on the road. It will be a totem pole of sorts that runs like a solar powered garden light utilizing four independent QLF6 (or Quad LED Flasher v6.0) circuits.

Any thoughs, let me know.

Our first 'robot' circuit: What is this Component?

We've been working on a lot of basic circuits, just trying to understand basic electronics.  Almost all of our components are salvaged from old electronics, so it has been slow going, but we are learning a lot!

That is the most useless but the most incredible of my robots. It is constructed simply with a booster and a PICAXE 08M is all. Read more

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.
