Let's Make Robots!

More hate votes, please!

The LMR DAGU Contest is comming to an end. But everybody in here are so fu**ing nice, and that will not do.

Oh, you are so nice, your robot is so cool, I give you 5 stars, and you too, and you too.

Heck, where is the competition in that?

How can we ever find a true winner (3 true winners) when the call is so close?

What to do? Hate! Fight, mean stuff, we need the dark clouds to fill the sky in here. Remember this is about money, kill!!

(JKA is working on something more fancy than this, an applet for download)   If you are using Picaxe, I am sure you know, use, and appreciate the function … Read more

Yellow Drum Machine DAGU version

DAGU has asked me to make a prototype of a Yellow Drum Machine-kind of project. Thanks OddBot and Jklug80 for bringing this on ;)

Actually I was trying to make a robot that would carry a camera and take pictures of it self and stuff.. and these days I only have just about 30 minutes of spare time every day to build.. and logging in to LMR often takes that time, so I had to drop all other projects to be doing this.

DAGU Promotion, Cheap HW, LMR Mr. Basic Special LMR version + 3 prizes!

Update: --== DAGU ROCKS ==--


Update: NEW manual attached! Replacing old one. Sorry for the format, PDF was too heavy :)


 Hi dear fellow robot builders, members of LMR.

As I am sure you know, OddBot has made us some cool contact with Jack from China, the guy behind DAGU Electronics.

Now I also had some talks with Jack himself regarding a production of some of my stuff (Thanks Odd).

Buying the same is so cosy!

Just my 5 cents:

It should come as no surprise that I am really happy that DAGU has chosen to be friends of LMR. It has a lot of advantages!

However, it also broght something new and unexpected with it; We are all (50 of us) getting the same toy! 

I dont know, I just think it is so cosy, in the need of a better word. So I had to write a blog entry about it.

And then we all had the same problems, and we all had the same talks with Claudia from DAGU, and we all thought she is so nice, and we all got a free mouse, that we all..

:D

Mounting brackets for SRF05 (Open letter to Jack / DAGU)

SRF05 is still IMHO the best low-cost distance sensor.

And there is still no good / smart / fancy / easy / pro / cheap way to mount the darn thing on a turning neck / servo / front..

We now have a good contact to DAGU from China who makes cheap and cool robot-stuff.

So.. I thought.. Why don't we make some suggestions to how we would like such a mounting thing(ey) shaped and made? And then ask Jack from DAGU if he could start producing it?

This was my idea.. and now I need your help and ideas towards the design :)

This is a very nice little package. You have to assemble yourself, and there are 3 ways. You want to assemble in "C"-mode, ratio 203:1 The A & B setups, 58:1 … Read more

Tried the new Picaxe X2!

Holy crap, the programming is different!

Prepare to use extra time, or use the X1.

There is a "converter" in the latest Axepads, but it is not 100% compatible with all my dirty code.

Boy, this is different! More than I thought :)

However, I am sure it is wicked, a real step up! 

If you are a newbee, you may only have learned that the Picaxe 28 pin Project Board has some inputs and outputs.. And you may have purchesed an SRF05 (that Picaxe … Read more
