Robot Luggage at Sector67!

Last Tuesday, Ben, “Doug”, and I gave a talk at Sector67.  We basically talked about the process of building robot luggage, how it works, what electronics are in it, and then we showed it off.  It was fun, but Doug was misbehaving, I’m thinking either some 2.4Ghz Zigbee noise or 40Khz Ultrasonic noise might have been interfering with him.

A lot of cool projects were shown and the knitting machine did a great rendition of Robot Luggage!  A picture of robot luggage was taken unbeknownst to us and the last presentation of the night was the showing off of the knitted blanket!  All in all great night, I can’t wait to go next month.


The dreaded First.  What everyone wishes they could be, but only one can be.  Anyways, as you can read about in my About section, this blog will mainly contain technology posts.  I will post updates on personal projects which can range from simple microprocessor projects, to Android applications.  My goal is to inform.  Current personal projects include:

Running my website and installing an image hosting application on one of my subdomains– ongoing process

Creating an RPM switch with an LCD display and a ‘boost’ circuit for my friends’ car-hopefully be done in a couple of weeks

Creating a free Bluetooth Terminal application to put up on the Android market for developers and robot enthusiasts to use-probably a month, I don’t know java very well but do have a working bluetooth section, just need to finish the terminal front end
