Killbot Video

I found some video of my killbot and I though I’d share it.

You can see the IR mast in the center (the yellow straw).

Enjoy! :)

Rotary Cell Phone

I have this dream of building a rotary cell phone. I got fairly far but I hit a snag when i was looking for a cell shield (that wasn’t outrageously expensive).

The dialer was pretty much complete. I ended up adding a debouncer to it because it kept misreading the numbers. In the end, everything is pretty much done.

For fun, I bought an Ardunio and started working on my KillBot. Life got in the way and I never finished the autonomous code (I was hoping to turn it into a cleaning robot or a cat toy... one day!), but I was able to connect it to my DVD remote. ;)
