WiiCamera's back in stock (Sorta)

Hey guys,

As many of you know, I stocked the WiiCamera board for many years, and for all of those years it has been a nightmare to keep these guys in stock due to the fact that I had to constantly troll ebay for broken Wiimotes to harvest. I occured to me that it would be easier for a individual person to find one broken wiimote to buy rather than me trying to find 300 at a time. Because of this fact, I am now proud to introduce the WiiCam DIY kit.

WiiCams back in Stock

 

Finally!!!

After the slowest of slow boats from China, we have gotten the needed supply of boards.

WiiCams are back in stock!

(So is everything else people have been waiting for)

 

Robot camera?

I need a camera like a CMUcam or a AVRcam for my robot. I was thinking about getting a CMUcam or AVRcam, but there hasn't been much activity lately by the makers of these cameras, so I'm a little hesitant. I want to be able to do onboard color tracking, blob detection, etc.. And I have an Arduino Mega and Duemilinove to use on my robot. Any help from the LMR society goes a long way, and I appreciate it. Thanks!

Wild Thumper goes Wild hunting Lions in Africa!

I heard through the grapevine (amando96, Gareth) that a Wild Thumper Chassis was being used to photograph wild animals!

What cameras are available

I'm really looking to the future at a project I'm planning, but wondered what camera setups are available.

It seems that a lot of people use the Blackfin(?), but I wondered what alternatives there are. Lots of mentions about the AVRCam, but that now seems unavailable.

Alternatively, a couple of years ago, I upgraded my security cameras, and have a couple of wireless cameras that I can "hack". Is that feasible?

V3 - Borg it is!

Hi all!

Here is quick rendering on how V3 will lokk like :) Almost finished the design, still little things to take care of, I can start cutting soon.

 

Has a Borg feeling to it :D
