Let's Make Robots!

The Mailman

 

Long time no see...

I just wanted to share with you something I worked on during the month of January. I particpated in a robot competition here at M.I.T called MASLAB. My robot and team ended up taking 1st place. The details can be found on my website.

I'm sorry that I don't have the time to write a proper robot post about it on LMR.

This is my MIT acceptance tube hack. MIT asked us to hack our tubes, and so I did. "What does it do?" I am glad you asked! It falls over when something walks in … Read more

TouchOSC + Ipad + Processing

I am just sharing something I am working on. I say it will be used to control some robots in the future. It may just turn out to be something I do for the heck of it. Any way.... Here is a video explaining a little of what I have. Basically the thing with using this setup is all the code is written on processing which can read the input from the app and output data to the app also. This could be used to control a robot via xbee and display information back to the  user on the app. I may write a tutorial on this in the near future. 

You know, for kids.

This is an old project of mine that I think I now want to finish. It will be my first attempt at image processing.

Here is where it is at so far. More information will be added with time.

Yeah I know what you are thinking, "V3? What is this a CNC machine?" Well no, I really want to get this idea working. I had 2 other versions before this one, but … Read more

ezLCDuino Backpack

I am just going to make it clear that the boards are not currently going to come preprogrammed with some kind of serial LCD backpack code or other code. It will be up to you to program it how you please, but all the capabilities are there. I will be posting example code though and hopefully some tutorials to get started.

UPDATE 07.27.11 I have written a maze solving simulator and embedded it online. It allows users to build a maze and have a virtual robot solve it using the left … Read more
