LMR Starter KIT


I've completed the starter kit turorial on this site, ordering the whole package from solarbotics containing all the components.

Now i want to upgrade to using a platform like this one:


but im not sure weather to order with or without the board that is optional, and im not sure if my picaxe28 is able to run these motors.

Please help me understand how i can tell the difference on parts that i can use, and parts i cannot use.

LCD and AVR kit


I am doing my own AVR kit. I connected LCD 8x2 on port A and B (RS - PA1; R/W - PB4; E - PA0; DB4-7 - PB0-3) . When LCD is not in the circuit nothing work like power supply is off. When LCD is in the circuit everything run. Connect and disconnect LCD is one of the important part of this kit.


feasibility of DIY wireless headphone kit

So, I was searching the market for what my wireless headphone options were and got quite disappointed.

As it seems, wireless used is either IR, RF (on the FM/UHF band) and Bluetooth (also 2.4Ghz seemingly working in the router's norm).

IR ... needs line of sight, small range...
RF... prone to interferences
Bluetooth... small range
2.4GHz... some reviews said they interfered with the home wireless routers


Helping a special friend with his first robot,

I am helping with my friends first robot! He primaily wanted tractor treads and an Arduino "because he heard they were good" ( I didn't disagree with him. :-)

We decided on an inexpensive kit was a good starting point and then it can be expanded later.

Our choice was the BrutusBot and electronics package (looks like I get to solder 2 boards, lucky me...). It was fairly cheap.

He seems good in the programming and mechanical areas, he isn't so good with the electronics part (he does fine with some guidance).

MintyProbe, the Altoid can logic probe

Inspired by Andersen and CTC, I am putting together a Logic Probe Kit consisting of:
     MintyProbe, a tiny 3.5"x2.25"x.75" Logic probe with 2x16 LCD Screen able to:
                Detect High, Low, Floating Inputs
                Signal Pulse Length
                Voltage readout (5V and Under)

Vex robotics kit

Ok, well my dad wants to go 50/50 with me on the vex R/C starter bundle here, Can I have some reviews on the overall system? Sorry if this is in the wrong forum

Getting Started

I want to get started, but I need help putting a decent started pack together. I know I need a board, download cable, etc, but what other toys should I start with?

 I want to be able to start off small: get a light to blink. Then move to getting several lights to blink in order or random order. Then I want to move onto attaching a motor and getting it to spin. Eventually I want to build a robot that will do all of my work, but baby steps right?
