ATtiny servo control


After a brief discussion with fellow LMR member Maxhirez, about his Hedwig robot,
it seems as though there isn't much support for servos in the ATtiny family of
microcontrollers. After fighting with the 8-bit servo library I found HERE that was
supposed to make it as easy as a standard Arduino to add servos to an ATTiny project,
Stops shorting out! ( will explore, line follow, etc )

Based on a ZipZap micro R/C car with a custom PCB and Pic16F88, this "Big Guy" is the start of my new, microbot. I've wanted to build a small robot for some time. … Read more

Help with Micro/Mini Gearhead motors for tiny bot

Ok so if you've read my profile here, one of my goals is to create/produce a low cost, versatile micro/mini robot that could be used as a swarm bot.

Currently I'm trying to source some decent tiny gearhead motors for under $12 dollars. Today I've come across these:


and this



Also there are some 3V gearmotors of the same dimensions with varying RPMs (from 30 to 100rpm) available as well. The torque ratios are not given for those, however.

Drawing on the popularity of the Tiny Tank, I decided that some folks might want wheels instead. I give you, Little Wheels. The Little Wheels Robot is a great … Read more

Is this cool or what?

Just had to share it :)

I wanted to create this blog about an Instructable memeber I've read about a while back.
