  • This reminds me of a weekend project I threw together called netbounce ( http://netbounce.earlz.net ). It might be seen as useful to some people where you don’t need to store the data, but just need a live stream of it as it comes out. I personally used it for debugging an HTTP client API.

  • Just to be clear, this is still capable of seeing non-infrared light as well, right?

  • I decided to try to build a object avoiding robot with this(and a supersonic sensor I had). However, I need just one more angle bracket and nut :( It’d be nice if you somehow indicated “hey, you probably want to pick up 5 or 10 of these while you’re at it”

    Also, I can second the other calls for a full tutorial for hooking everything up to be the line following robot. Putting the chasis together was one thing, but then figuring out where to put the battery pack and board required a ridiculous amount of trial and error.

    And finally, it’d be really nice if you had a program preloaded onto it that was just motor.drive(255) or some such, so we could easily test if it works without having to get the programming environment running

  • Out of curiosity, what is the background music?

  • You guys are awesome. Placed an order that would’ve been over $100 for about $63. Finally got a RedBot and OpenLog. It should arrive just a few days before I get vacation time :)

  • Oh no!

  • Dat blow torch

  • Every once in a while, there is a person who comes along and restores your faith in humanity. Today, you are that person to me. Amazing projects! Amazing unwich! You’re awesome!

  • Can you recommend some kind of reference guide to the different configurations, base ideas on how to set it up, and some common uses for each? I feel like every time I need to use a transistor, I have to google and try and find someone who’s done something similar to know how to wire it up. It would be nice having a reference so I don’t have to do that.

  • That Z-axis tape is indeed mind blowing! Do you think you could replace breakout boards (For small pin counts) for prototyping by sticking an IC to the tape and then sticking stripped wirewrap wires to align with the pins of the IC?

No public wish lists :(
