Let's Make Robots!

Analog input 1?

Hey guys.

 I ordered and recieved most of my things and was building my first robot! (looks like crap, but hey, off with the looks)

Anyhow, i was going though the manual in the START HERE page. At one point it simply says to plug the singal wire to Analagod Input 1. Fine, i thought. BUT WHERE THE HELL IS IT???

 

Argh! I have a PICAXE 28X1 board,but I'll include a few pictures anyway.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Arduino

Can someone explain to me the big hype about those fancy Arduino boards I've been seeing around?

 Hell, or simply post up a link to something that describes it's functionality/usefulness compared to the Picaxe series.

Thanks!

PICAXE book

Hey guys,

 

I was planning on getting the Picaxe book (seems pretty offcial) on TechSupplies;

Anyone already have it or does anyone actually recommend it?

 

Thanks!

Fritsl, seriously, ever since I borded this place, I've been pondering on that picture of yourself.

What the hell are you doing?

Yawning while scratching your early day's beard?

Watching a naked womens parade strolling outside?

Looking out the window in awe because you just saw something surreal pass by?

 

I HAVE TO KNOW!!!

Awesome.

IR!?

Hey guys,

 

I was just wondering if the SRF05 and the Sharp GP2D120 IR Sensor - 11.5" / Analogue have the same basic function (which I thought was simply scanning and analyzing what it sees)

 

Thanks!

Argh! I want my robot gear!

Hey guys. Well I ordered these today and hopefully I'll be getting these in less than 2 weeks!

 

What do you think? (I simply copied the list from my invoice, so the pricing and everything is there.

 

Am I missing anything? Or would you recommend something else?
