Let's Make Robots!
This looks like a wicked cool board that takes a Picaxe (or any other PIC) and a motor driver, like a standard Picaxe board.. But way cheaper, and then on top: It … Read more

Android LMR app ..?

Google has made it pretty easy to create apps for their Android OS, that I am sure you have heard about, and possibly use.

I am a heavy user, and I'd like to try and make an LMR app, just for the fun of it. Or have yours on my phone?

But what on earth would be fun or possibly even useful?

Perhaps it's  an all together stupid idea, because one can always just use the phones browser, and get "the real thing" there, even log in and all. Several of my posts have been made that way, from my phone.

Best Arduino (compatible) board?

I want to make the next generation of the "Start Here"-instructions be based on Arduino instead of Picaxe.

Some will say that it was about freakin time, but so far the advantage of the Picaxe has been that I could chose a single board that "did it all": Hook up Motors, Servos, sensors and everything.

This, and the fact that the Picaxe Basic Language needs very little introduction, made it the choise - even though the Arduino series has been a lot more popular recent years.

Isn't Slow Motion / high speed filming the coolest?

Hi guys,

I am playing around with the thought of making a little robot to put on the table after you had breakfast or something, it is supposed to work on the table while you take off the dishes.

Purpose is to scrape together all breadcrumbs, and place them nice in a corner for you to wipe off, before cleaning the table with a moist dishcloth.

So, I'm a nerd

At a famliy weekend.. Everyone is talking, talking, talking.. Uh, what is that? Some Lego.. Oh, and a rubber band.. Hmm, what was it about my camera, it could take low quality, but high speed movies?

Enjoy :)

If your robot is inside another room, on the floor, has the board hidden within a tube, or you want wire contact while it's driving around on the floor..
Yes, I know that this is very, very basic, now that people here are making robots that flies into space, stereo vision, multi core and all.. But I just did this so … Read more
