Electronics I've Built

Here's some various electronics I've built over the years to help me with my robotics.

Added New Robot

Feynman Jr 2I've added a new robot Feynman Jr. 2. The goal of this robot is to follow me around.

Need A Robot Brain?

Of all the things I wish I could have purchased off-the-shelf, it would have been a brain.

Computer Vision Book / Face Recognition

Another idea that I've been working on is creating a book that's about computer vision.

Coming Soon A New Robotics Book

I am in the process of creating another book on robotics programming. Simpler, easier to read and use, including a DVD with all the source code and a Virtual Machine.

Want to Build A Robot in 10 minutes?

I was thinking of making a kit and assembly instruction video on building a robot in 10 minutes.

Updated 2 Robots

I have updated Feynman Jr and Feynman 7.

Updated Site

Well after a year or so I have updated the look and feel of the site.

Feynman Jr. and Carnot at CodeMash

I was able to take Feynman Jr. and Carnot to CodeMash The conference was awesome and I learned a little about my robots during the event.

Been working on new robot and API

I have been working on a smaller version of a robot than Feynman 6, called Feynman Jr. I have also begun to refactor my Java API so that it will work with my new robots.

Voltage Measurement for your Robot

For those Basic Stamp 2 users out there. Just use RCTIME with a simple circuit. Depending on the values of your capacitor and resistors you can equate your RCTIME value to your voltage.

Feynman6 at COJUG

I talked about my robot Feynman6 at the Central Ohio Java Users group on Tuesday March 13, 2007.

Added Store

Go to my new online store.

JavaRobots Project

I have added the JavaRobots project at SourceForge.
