We had a SB discussion today. Some people got problems with the new color scheme in the Arduino IDE. Suggestions from birdmun hit my curiosity and that's the … Read more

ALF Donation for LMR4

Ok, I will make it short.

As a result of the Campus Party 2012 in Berlin I just donated 66UD$ for the development of LMR4.

Why and how?

Campus Party Berlin Tempelhof

Ok folks, we are in Berlin and setting up our domain. After a bit hassle with the registration and the tent we finally got everything settled.

We still need a bit organisation miracle to setup the big banner (thanks OddBot) and te live video stream but I guess we will get this done by tomorrow noon.

A whole airport terminal full of nerds, can you imagine that? Please keep in touch to learn more about the CP in Berlin.

Videos are coming in from time to time.

LMR meeting in Shanghai

We did it again. This time our friend OddBot (Russel) visited Shanghai and we got the chance to meet again, even with his limited time in Shanghai.

So, who is "we"? That's MarkusB (Markus), Taweili (David) and me. You can see Russel, Markus and me on the following picture. David as a photographer is behind the cam (sorry about the quality but this is not David's fault but the cheapy Point-and-Shoot camera ;-)

Mini Router opens doors in Shanghai Hackerspace

Well, recently we had a visitor and he was asking questions what we are doing in the hackerspace. This is what Lio has to say about it:

 

 

Attiny-Duino or whatever?

Hi geeks ;-)

I am thinking about to shrink some of my projects. That's the deal. I am planning to build a Attiny-Duino.

What would you think about it's usage? For myself I would use it in the Insect bot to reduce the weight, costs and power comsumption.

UPDATE June 8 2012:

My first PCB since 1988 and I will call it AT-LUMI-TINY ;-) This board is still far from perfect (see the jumper wires) but it's my first 1-layer board created on the computer. 

Ready for Campus Party

I am ready for the Campus Party.

OddBot was so kind to send me the LMR poster he already had to the Shenzhen Mini Maker Fair.

Sorry for the wrinkles but it's huge and i did not have the space to unfold it completely.

I will bring it to the Campus Party in Berlin in August.

Robotics in India

Just found this website and thought our Indian friends might be interested.

Hope some of you can make it.

1990, new technology (LOL)

Well, do you remember what year you got your first computer and what the specs are?

I know, it was a ATARI130XE with 1.79MHz and 128kB RAM. running with a Datasette/tape cassette player to save and load programs. The OS was the Atari OS. You can find the details here: Atari 130XE
