It’s been quite a while without building robots… errr.. creatures.. anyhow I’m releasing this new creature, wich is still a work in progress..  and since I … Read more

Lab in standby mode

I'm moving to an apartment near Lisbon, and this is one of the reasons for the long time no-posting and non-building robots..  and I still have to wait one more month to have my lab back!   :D

SSS - Servo Suspension System

This is my first experiment with the MakerBot. I am totally thrilled with this machine!!!

SSS (servo suspension system) is designed to support standard servo motors and act as a basic suspension. It is still a work in progress and has not been tested yet.

Will update results as soon as possible (still waiting to have my lab back).


I would like to know everyone's opinion on this  :)

Lusorobotica.com and EmbeddedDreams.com made a challenge to build a robot only with one servo, and this was what I came up with. I used the sound sensor I've done a … Read more

Zezinho, the poser - interactive installation

This is the final result of the first stage of this project. An installation where zezinho calls for visitors and when a visitor reachs the mixing controllers he waits for new poses.

smoothing servo movements

Finally I finished zezinho's hardware and now heading to the software. 

When I have it programmed to jump into random poses I would like him to move smoothly instead of quickly jump into another pose.

Someone have any tip to achieve this using Arduino code?
