Lights on Bikes!

Hello LMRians.

In rememberance of Late Dr. Prahlad Yonzon, a Nepali biologist, Cycle City Nepal 2020 organized "Critical Mass", a  cycle rally. Dr. Yonzon, although having spent his career largely in the science field, was also an avid lover of cycling. Sadly, in 2011, he was hit by a vehicle while cycling, and died while undergoing treatment.

What do you do if you manage to get the approval of 4 out of around 60 people, to work on your idea for the next 54 hours?

So, it was an unprecedented week as I had 3 packges rolling into my place, and I just wanted to make a tiny update on these goodies I generously received from a couple of LMRians.

An Experience at the International Space Apps Challenge 2014, Kathmandu

Probably the world's largest "Codeathon", or what I like to call it, "Hackathon", The International Space Apps Challenge, kicked off in more than 90 countries all over the world on April 12th, 2014. Kathmandu was proud to be one of the hosting venues for a world-wide 48-hour pulsating event and so was I to be one of the participants. 16 teams had geared up in groups of all shapes and sizes to present their ideas, to bring them to life and most importantly, to change the world we live in to make it a better place. 

 

PID Tutorials for Line Following

Hey there guys. This post is outdated. Visit http://letsmakerobots.com/node/39972 for the updated tutorial.

Hello LMRians,
