Let's Make Robots!

The iPad of Dr. Moreau

Is anyone else getting weird renderings of the site on a tablet? Here's a screen cap I just landed:
ld5cWi8.jpgNever mind that johnnyalpha seems to be the logo out header, and that Duane's project picture is in the wrong box. What really disturbs me is

That ain't BDK.

Any complaints about your scope?

No, not variables. I'm wondering if anyone using a newer tft screen oscilloscope has any regrets about it. I'm talking the Attens, Owons, Rigols, Hanteks and Siglents in that U$300-500 range, 100-200Mhz, 1Gs area. I'm probably wasting money either way, and wasting time thinking about it, but that doesn't stop me from thinking about it.

TARS from "Interstellar"

If you haven't seen it yet, the new Christopher Nolan film "Interstellar" features three robots that look like a cross between HAL and a ninja throwing star. _1412189530.jpg They're pretty clumsy puppets. If you've seen the movie (3 1/2 stars for me) what do you make of the realism of their motion? I don't see how they could work the way they do.

I found the perfect Hallowe'en costume for BDK!

Okay, this version is the wrong gender, but ya'll know how Mr. Cooke LOVES

Arduino, right?

(Happy Halloween, Sarge! ;-)

Another take on Jibo

Warning-contains drinking, several self-deprecating Asian jokes and scary references to NSA agents masturbating to underage girls.

LMR morès and web etiquette

tl:dr-If you violate our sense of order with (commercial) rudeness, you earn our rudeness in return.  Not saying it's right or wrong-just what to expect.

Any interest in a temporary IRC Channel?

You all remember IRC right? No? It's basically the godfather of the shoutbox. Yes, it's still around. Since I'm probably the one who broke the SB I feel like it's up to me to do something about it. First step, admit you have a problem: we're a bunch of Shout addicts. Or we could all just go to the hang out. What is the level of interest here?

Just a quick note

I know I've said this before in different ways. I know it's gushing, and I know it's kind of mutual admiration society stuff, but I don't care.

Ladies and Gentlemen of The Letsmakerobots.com community, you are the finest human beings I have ever been exposed to.



Thank you all for your continued participation here, from sharing your brilliant or modest or silly ideas and creations to teaching n00bs to lmgtfy or rtfm, or just goofing around in the shoutbox.

Micro Controller grid with LMR user cross reference?

Rox and I have a common complaint-we seem to collect SBCs like baseball cards. Tonight.
