@Tobias: I loved your 3 "crazy" wheel robot and I was hoping to read more (programming, acceleration, ...). Any plans on this ?

Hi Tobias -- the robot is currently on the "back burner" because I have so many other things on the go -- on the other hand, I now have my PIXY computer vision module and pan/tilt stand sitting on my desk calling out to me... plus I have all of the wheels and motors sitting around in my office... As soon as i ger some of my other projects finished, I will return to the robot -- thanks for reminding me

Back-burnering a few

I've got too many as well. The big one is my robot avatar. Rather than progressing, though, it seems to have spun off a number of additional projects. There's my micro-bot (pic.twitter.com/pnP22dJhD3) that was my first pass at 3D printing. My second forray into 3D printing is an axel adaper/wheel hub for the robot avatar (pic.twitter.com/7ZwPgnq2sp).

Max has not only filled his plate, he's added a bit to mine as well. There's the custom Arduino-compatible sensor board. I think I owe him another blog on that subject. The Kickstarter is now sucessfully over, so that's off.

Now, though, I'm trying to back burner a few things and spend most of my time on a custom Arduino-compatible hardware book.

I really want to try out the LEDs on a Papilio that Mike Field just wrote up too. I'd probably have to convert his VHDL to Verilog, though, because I don't know VHDL.

@maxthemagnificent I" certainly have -- it's by David Brin -- it's really rather good"

The name is just really offputting ot me. I keep imaging Lord of the Rings, with those Uruk-hai getting hatched out of those molds.

@maxthemagnificent "I have the kiln sitting on my back deck"

@Antedeluvian: An oxymoron, I believe.

No, I was brought up as a Wesleyan Methodist. Oh, you mean "the deck" -- maybe I should have said "porch" -- and maybe we should just call you "Mr Pedantic" LOL

@Wnderer: I guess firing up the kiln is more of winter project than a summer project.

I have the kiln sitting on my back deck (it's a concrete deck and it's covered) so I can fire it up anytime -- the fact that the kiln is running at liquid glass temperatures indide means that variations in the outside temperature are largely immaterial.

@mhrackin: What the final design turned out to be is a 2000 SF shop masquerading as a garage...

I'm drooling with desire...

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
