@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...
