Now that was FAAAST!

Hey there guys,

A week earlier, our fantastic LMR member Lumi was kind enough to sponsor me a gripper arm and a pan tilt bracket (for 3DOF). I was planning to use it in a project for a local exhibition. More on that soon! Let's see how the shipping went.

Spider Controller powering up through USB only.

Hey guys,

I hadn't used the the spider controller for around 2 months. ( was working great back then) A few weeks ago, I picked it up again, tried powering up through an external power supply, and booom. ( no it didn't blow! :D)

But it did not power up.

It works fine through the USB cable. I checked the switch. It was damaged too. I have replaced it with a new one, but to no avail.I am assuming that the 5V regulator might have gone out? What do you suggest guys?

Thanks

Made In Nepal Expo 2014 : A Glimpse

Hey there guys!

Whenver there's a relatively huge event in Nepal, the organizers resort to "Bhrikuti Mandap" as the venue. So was the case this time. The Made in Nepal Expo 2014 was held from 14th - 17th Feb 2014, at Bhrikuti Mandap. 

As the event name suggested, the event hosted hundreds of stalls that ranged from furniture to clothing and from pottery to 21st century art-work, in short, everything that's made in Nepal. Of course, why would I post this if there weren't some robots on display?

Hello there.........Hot Glue!

Hey there guys,

Finally, ( let me repeat that again ), FINALLY, I have made my entry to the LMR HOT GLUE CLUB !! (Really? Is there one? :D)

Long story. Many places were searched and explored in Kathmandu. Many shops and mini-markets, hunted down, and from one, out comes an LMRian's favourite weapon!

Below is where I found it. It's a place called Asan, a busy street market area. Pretty much an offline real world e-bay for me ! ( cheap stuff )
