My latest trash find!!!

My neighbor was throwing out this computer. I asked if I could have it. He said "sure, it doesnt work anymore". I asked what was wrong with it and he said "I don't know, it wont turn on". I told him I would take it and see if there were any parts we could use. I took it in the house, plugged it in and got an error message. The hard drive was pretty crappy and small. So I took the hard drive out of a DVR, formated it, and put it in this computer and installed a fresh copy of XP. I vaccumed out the inside (it was nasty).

Good idea or Bad idea?

I redesigned our arduino shield and hoped some of you could give me some feedback on it. we get a lot of questions about how to hook up everything for the LARS robot we did. so i thought this would be a good idea for a beginner kit.

Servos for Sharp LCD

I found this link for the datasheet.

I need a couple of standard servos to use on the roboduino if anyone is interested in trading. 

We just received our Roboduino from Curious Inventor in the mail the other day. It has been snowing outside since yesterday and today we woke up to an ice storm … Read more
