Let's Make Robots!

Almond Bread - are you series-ous

Phosphour Blotch or hidden messages !!!!

Third pass ------ it just gets brighter and brighter.......

One stage further to understand how to control things with Maths......

What Series picture is (-:G.-) cooking up with his propeller mathematics .......?

Green Scale Graphics

Following on from my "Original" Phosphor screen UltraViolet laser experiments........

.... it struck me by varying the amount of time the laser hits the phosphor screen ......you can vary the brightness .aaanddd...

....create GreenScale images... below you can see the Green Swiss cross with "GreenScale" fading ....

JPGs and BMPs are a pinch away.........

If you have any ideas how i can strip the information out of a bmp/jpg..........fill in the empty boxs below......

Smiley.................................

"Smiley" ..... with Parallax Propellor.

Slap a UV laser onto a pan-tilt servo mechanism and blast a 50cm x 50cm sheet of florescent vinyl with it ........

Propeller chip picks up preformed Graphic data matrix from data table........

Captains Blog StarDate 29783 - Miranda's Golden Eye

Introducing Miranda - implementation of "Halo" Laser scanner.

Consists of a Golden reflector/Wii camera attached to CTC's Mini Prop Undershield (PPPB) & Andrews M44D40+ propeller board.

Captains Blog ....StarDate 29773 ......Containment Leak in Gareths Space-Lab......

Scotty ......"Captn....i canny noo contain the plasma leak.....were doooomed"

Kirk......"We need one of those new Halo things ......can you build a "mini" one Scotty ......in purple" ?....

"Brian" Lives - Spawn of the North

Introducing my latest Robot "Brian" :-

Born             :-   Friday 23rd September 2011 @ 10:30 BST

Weight         :-   60 grammes

Dimensions  :-   2.5″ x 2.0″

Gender         :-  Hermaphrodite

    It is my first attempt at creating a cost effective "Swarm" bot ....

.... Brian is learning fast, though is only crawling at the "MoMo"

Mystery Autumn 2011 project

Mystery Autumn "Guess wot the Heck Gareth is doing now" project

RFID Part 2 - Multipass Cuckoo

Continuation of Hacked Multipass RFID reader ......

Now updated with absolute decode of the 19 byte "Secret-Cypher" hex string to 10 digit readable numerical string....YAY

RFID "Multipass"

RFID reader hacking success.... 19 bytes of raw data .......

Question is  shall i go Arduino or Propeller ? .....or even Picaxe (just in its grasp)

$2 Elfish computer "BlueTooth" Upgrade

For the cost of 4 resistors and a $1.80 Bluetooth dongle - your Propeller chip can join the wireless environment.

....again the Propeller chip just bowls me over with its amazing capabilities.....

For more details of how to accomplish this....... zip over to Elizabeth Scotts site

EDIT :- Now confirmed working with 2$ dealextream Bluetooth Dongle.
