Hi

Just a small post on a gap cross robot we had to build for a competition at our hackerspace:

I used a PICAXE 08M2 as the brain. I wanted to use a bigger chip like the 14M2 with a lot of sensors to let the robot detect the edges of the gap and count the number of turns on the...

Face detection will detect the presence of a face based upon the geometery while facial recognotion will detect the face and let you know who it is.

For the past few months I have been away from here and busy working on various projects and then there is...

"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...

Dear: CKR

It all started when I 3d printed a human skull. I noticed there were a ton of problems with it. It was dang slow and even when it was printing fast it did a poor job printing. That is why I am making a new 3D printer. This 3D printer is an sla 3D printer of my own design. It...

Dear: CKR ​Just letting you know this Christmas my dad bought me a drone to do drone racing with since I have been really wanting to build and run a drone racer for a while. So my dad then spent 400$ on a prebuilt drone since he had known I would rather have bought one than built one on my own....

I had the urge to build something quite simple to just build a robot and realizing I had not built a two servo walker thought it was worth a try. I have built three servo versions like the...
