MAKE 12 - Beetlebot http://www.make-digital.com/make/vol12/?pg=150

  • I once wanted to use RFID for drone racing. Now with this setup with the high gain antenna it’s possible. Right now we have a new system that detect the strength of the video feed from the drone itself. Each pilot have their own video frequency so the base station check the “RSSI” of each flying drone passing by. It can then measure laps. All that with no extra gear on the drone. Before that we had IR beacons.

  • yes, I mean 1Password for iOS device. I also tried minikeepass on ios that was good until I discovered 1Password.

  • There is some great app for password manager that will keep everything safe and easy to access instead of the little piece of paper near your router :P

    thanks for the tips, I will double check tonight my router password and make it right.

  • This is interesting… I did some research and the main advantage is aesthetic purpose (to look as much like an IC pin) and they say that header pins are too large for breadboard and can damage them. Even though we all have been doing that that for years! The top of the PCB can be flush mount vs header.

    Other then that, hard to beat 0.1 header that we all have laying around.

  • very nice. On the robot when you connect your “red bot sensor” together, you can twist the wires together with a drill so it makes the wires harness more cleaner since we see it through the transparent plastic.

  • you have to look at the bright side, what Adafruit and Sparkfun are doing to teach kids about electronics. All the products, tutorials, videos, etc. to help us maker become better at what we love to do.

  • the GPS mouting strategie is interesting! Mounting on gimbal would help but add weight. Double GPS with different orientation would add redundancy but would cost more.

  • Rudolf! Christmas is only in 8 months!

  • Are those labels made with those old school DYMO mechanical embosser? HAHA! nice

    google “FLiR One Tear down” and check this out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHQr6F7757c He started the reverse engineering of the camera.

    That is how you know the resolution.

No public wish lists :(
