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 :)

New ways of seeing things..

Hi all, I am so excited about this. It may not be much to anybody else, but to me it is!

You all know how we only have the IR's or the Ultra sound to work with when we want to check distance? Yeah, if we have millions we can also get a camera or two, and laser range finders..

However, I wanted something cooler.

This is not that, I am sorry.

However, I am working on something cooler (I hope, but it may be far fetched), and when doing so, as a spin off I made this. 

And it is pretty wicked, I think.

Another Ultrasound Sensor

Hey guys, check this so far unknown UltraSound sensor:

I kinda like, compared to SRF05.. maby.. :)

The RHex way of moving

Wow - just stumpled over this:

I really like the way it moves. Specially at the last part of the video, where it is "running". One day, with 6 small geared motors.. I have to make something like that! :D

Rhythm Ring

Oh no.. It has been done ;/

See the video - I was planing to something similar with this project..

Well.. it still is a funny project :) Perhaps one day..

How to measure Amp?

Could somebody explain in a very easy way (with a drawing of what goes to what) show how one measures how many amp a motor is taking?

Thanks!

We need a logo on LMR. or do we?

This crap website does not even have a logo!

Can you make one, or do you have any ideas?

Would be cool if we could get some, and make a vote or something :) ?

You may be on Japanese TV (nationwide)

Smile! And watch out for what you are writing in the shoutbox (yes, that was a note to myself) - you never know who is looking by with a videocamera :)

A very nice person from Japan send me this:

Which robot-website is more popular? (how are we doing?)
