Every year I give myself a little project to do that has the twin aims of providing an alternative to watching TV and keeps my “hand-on” skills with technology current. In the past I have built linux servers from scratch, learnt Ruby of Rails (remember that !!) and of course uncessfully tried to build a cheap remote sensing platform from an electric RC helicopter (not enough lift – too much vibration).
This year my projct is less challenging in many ways, completely inspired by John McKerrell and his now famous Weasley Clock I am going to learn how to build robuts using the Arduino Kit. So I have my book, a simple Arduino kit and some stuff from Maplin..
Our Robot Overloads will take their first steps…
Happy Holidays !!
