"The Laser from HELL"

I have been playing with a low cost diode laser etcher/cutter since last summer. Everything about the machine is marginal and my lack of knowledge in this arena has really hindered progress. I ended up developing a Linux application to control the etch/cut operation...

OVERVIEW

Ok, this is not a robot. It doesn't move, talk, sing, listen, burn down houses or other robotic things. It does look kind of cool and flashes menancingly at you with it's multi color flashing, dancing LED. Scary enough isn't it? This is just a little side project to play with.

TWEETY BOT

Built 11/2015

Tweety Bot started out an a much more ambitious project.

I would hope so I guess since all he actually does is sit around and Tweet. Anyhow, the original goal was to build a birdy bot that could sit on your arm or shoulder and use a gryo/accel sensor to...
