Let's Make Robots!

Real neat Robo Soccer

I would give a lot to see how a game like this looks like in 20 years :)

Ways of communicating with a PC

A nice inspiration to control robots / communicate PC <-> Robot

Monkey vs Robot

Well.. erh :D

What on earth is this?

My wife "organized" one of my drawers, and this thing came up. What on earth is THAT I asked. "It is just one of your thingeys" she replied.

It had no batteries in it, so I inserted some.. and nothing happened.

I has:

A speaker, a print (with a black-blob-chip on it), and.. some strange "sensor" or something? Strange little thing with wires on each side, to hold it together? And to mystify even more, that can be "sealed off".

Also, on the side it has some mounting-part, that had some old no-longer-stickey tape on it.

Frits's private parts up for grabs

-- == Here is a link to an always updated Picasa foto album with the things I have, and will send to you, for the things I want, on the list below ==--

Some of the items I have in 100's, and some just the one - aske me below (coment) for details, thanks :)

If you want to swap with me, do it like this:

PM me with subject line "Offer", and a ultra short mail with the following:

Arduino: How to make your first robot with..

When writing this, LMR only offers "Start here" - instructions on how to make your first robot, using Picaxe.

"Nebster" wrote to me, and asked if I could do a parallel, using Arduino, and I think that is actually a very good idea (now that Picaxe refuses to pay me commission, haha)

Focus should be on making first timers get a robot up and running at a low cost, and most importantly learn how to hook up motors, a servo, and a analogue input in "no time".

Test yourself: Arty or Techie

There are 2 kinds of robot builders; Arty’s & Techie’s.

Take this test to find out what you are :)
