SISTEMA SPUTNIK: Argentina´s own Picaxe Developer´s Site

Esteemed colleagues, members and friends,

It is with a great sense of acomplishment that I share with you my humble enterprise. I have just launched a website called Sistema Sputnik, that aims at teaching basic electronics to teenagers and grown ups who wish to take it up as a hobby. Picaxe Microcontrollers are at the heart of the system itself.

DIYBin.com: The WORST customer service

I wanted to share with the fellow members my bad experience with the customer service of DIYbin.com.

Geometry In N Adaptations (G.I.N.A. - Some non-metallic inspiration)

Here´s some inspiration for you guys. These videos and project are not new. Some of you may even find it boring. It blows my mind. Robots do not need to be made of metal. Say again??

CHEAP-O WAY TO MONITOR ADC VALUES IN PICAXE

Fellow members,

Does any of you know of, or use a way to monitor the ADC values produced by a Picaxe analog input pin in real time?

As far as I know, the only two ways to monitor these values as they happen are: 1) with an LCD in the circuit or 2) on the programming PC via the download cable.

I was wondering f there was a cheap-o version, something you could breadboard easily and with discrete components... Ideas anyone? Or am I looking for the holy grail?

Thanks, all!

Cheers,

Andrés
