Got so far last night, when I realized I have no soldering tools. What that means is no way of getting the senors on, not without some creativity anyway.
Currently turns left and moves forward a bit( just random test), but I’ll get to coding the Arduino after the senors are up and running.

I’ve recently purchased a L298 Hbridge to help me help arduino help a remote controlled car think by itself and move.
Does it work? Continue reading
The Arduino Mega. Cheap, capable and best of all easy to use. Hopefully at the center of many projects to come.
While asking around for microcontrollers I’ve been told to use this and that(for the sake of fairness I won’t name names). This was a nightmare to use and that was just plain ridiculously expensive. And of course neither came even close to the specs of an Arduino board( let it be noted that my original intention was to purchase an Arduino Duemilanove).
As my way to give back to the community allow me to spread the word:
A little information: Continue reading
A fairly simple idea I had sometime ago. I wanted to simulate mechanisms, robots and odd contraptions.
I made this little applet, and challenged most people I know to build a contraption which leaves the screen area. Continue reading
A fine start for this small inventory of software, a Processing sketch done in too little time for a communications session at college.
Was fun to do, but only landed me 5th place. Better luck next time I suppose. Since the solving and calculating is done graphically and the numerical values were a last minute add-in they aren’t exactly precise.
Features: What this little applet does is calculate and display the virtual(red) and real(green) images of an object, as seen trough up to 99 lenses.
It’s all self explanatory really, except for the keys. To help the curious and the eager to learn/ play, I’ve provided a short list of keyboard and mouse shortcuts.
