Let's Make Robots!

Best Robot Quotes

All this robot-thingy.. so many gray zones.. Is it life, what is a robot? What drives us to make them, what is happening in the future, what is so much yesterday, etc..

It leads to many quotes, just as early computing must have had it's classic sentences & quotes.

A couple of times I recieved a mail, or stumpled upon some text, and had a laugh or a deep thought etc.

I sometimes thought that I wanted to write these somewhere, on some tag wall or something.

So here goes, comments to this post is .. BEST ROBOT QUOTES:

LMR was down - power failure

Hi guys,

The last 8 hours or something LMR and tons of other sites (including newspapers and magazines etz) has been down, due to a fried transformator-station in Denmark.

Up and running again :)

 

How to wire a relay

Hi,

I bought some relays, just to see what could be done - perhaps sometimes an alternative to a H-bridge.. or perhaps make a light-show or something, they are very cheap, so I thought "hey, let's see".

I got some of these AZ8222, and the documentation is thorough.. but look in the bottom of the manual - what on earth is supposed to be hooked up with what?

Christmas Robots!

Yes! Finally, someone to whom you can make a robot for Christmas, someone who will love to get it.


Yes! Finally, someone who will give you a homemade robot for Christmas.


Yes! Finally you can get to actually see and try someone else's robot .. and keep it.

 

 


This is how I would like to start a page on LMR; A whole (little) section with one purpose:

 

Let's make robots to each other for Christmas!

Where to buy Picaxe?

There seam to be an echo of "where do I buy Picaxe", especially from newbees from the US.

Well - let´s make some web-shops happy out there, I entered picaxe.co.uk (http://www.rev-ed.co.uk/picaxe/), looked under "distributors" and found this most likely not too recently updated list:

International Distributors/Resellers

Making sticks sync for a drum-machine

To The Cow God (and anyone else interested)

Making a microcontroller do beats is an awful thing.

Code needs to be in 2 parts;

  1. The "Hit"
  2. The "Sequence / note-part"

In 2) There is all the logic that makes up a song, consisting of lines of code divided into segments of 16

In 2) bits are set, such as BD = 1 (Play BassDrum), and also head, speaker-click etc. Once for every 16'th note

Every other "line" in 2) should also have an extra pause, how long it is makes the beat more or less shuffle.

 

Picaxe code for line follower

tHIS POST IS A MESS. iT IS EDITED SEVERAL TIMES AND MAKES NO MORE SENCE. i HAVE NO TIME TO DO MORE ABOUT IT: bOTTOM LINE IS THAT THERE IS ATTACHED A ZIP-FILE WITH ALL i EVER DID INlINE-SENSORING FOR pICAXE!


 

Chris the carpenter asked for picaxe code to line follower.

First you have to hook up the sensors to the analouge in. That is a chapter for itself, but in the end you will have a value for each sensor; 0-255

I have tried some different line-sonsors, once JIP and I was playing around with them.

I posted this earlier in my Blog, but now that there is a dedicated video-area in the forum, it should be here.

Sorry, but it did both inspire me and made me laugh :D 

This is such a lame thing

- I always thought sections with videos on websites where pretty lame - but here goes, we need one as well, of course, my problems should not be yours.

Here is a robot-video I have found on google :)

I ordered lots of stuff

I ordered lots of stuff to build Yellow Drum Machine II, and I cannot wait for it to arrive. I cannot wait for it to arrive. I cannot wait for it to arrive. I cannot wait for it to arrive. It should arrive any day now. From Solarbotics and Picaxe.
