Hi Mike,

Hope you are still around :)
What sort of force sensor did you use? What would you use now?

For simple, and lots of support, the Arduino platform, which uses the C++-like Processing language.

For more real-world stuff, C and C++, or with full computers on board, the Robot Operating System (ROS) is worth looking into.  ROS has APIs in both C++ and Python.

My roommate uses C++ in coding as well...haven't heard of ROS though, i'll give it a look!

Misc / Robotic blocks even 3 year olds can use?
« Last post by Browsingrobotics on March 11, 2016, 06:45:12 PM »
Hi there, I stumbled upon an article on Forbes about these robotic blocks to move and program old toys, gadgets, 3D prints and it seems a lot more. They are fully wireless and can be controlled with a smartphone or tablet. What got me excited is the smartphone controlled GoPro you can drive around, the fact you can bring 3D prints to life and that even young kids can play with it cause it doesn't require any screws, wires, soldering etc. I checked out their kickstarter page to find out more and I am actually thinking about it.

It seems pretty cool to me. I have seen other kits around but none that is so easy to use and that allows you to control multiple blocks from one single device. Let me know your thoughts before I get one. The article on forbes is http://www.forbes.com/sites/andyrobertson/2016/03/11/tio-brings-old-toys-to-life-with-robotics-and-iphones

« Last post by ansh on March 10, 2016, 05:39:56 PM »
Hello

I have computer that has internet connection and Microcontroller is connected to computer via usb to db9 cable. LED is connected to port pin of microcontroller

Computer -> web page (com port of PC)----- DB9 connector -> max Rs232 - > micro c -> LED

I want to control LED via web page I have created a web page , there are two buttons on web page , start and stop, if I press start button on web page , led should be “on’’ and If I press stop button on web page ,led should be turn “off’’
I am using Windows ,I want to send this information (LED ON/OFF) from internet to one of the serial ports of my computer? I am looking example code , can anyone tell me How does web page send data to port of computer ?

I did this in LIM mode. I changed the voice to +30% pitch to sound more like MeccaNoid

Notice how he looks down to find that extra fry.

i got started on the BoeBot from parallax.... over ten years ago, there are tutorials/lessons that start with the very basics and teach you programming and electronicsAirwheel A3 Scooter

Pretty big newbie with robotics so far but I just took a look at Parallax...super informative! Thank for the share, can't wait to see what I can build   :D

Electronics / 6 axis Robot controller + IK by WiseTech TW
« Last post by happytriger2000 on March 06, 2016, 02:39:33 AM »
Hello All,
              This is my 1st post and I would like to introduce to you all to our 1st 6 axis Robot controller:

This Mitsubishi RM-501 Movemaster has no controller just the main body frame, we built this controller for this robot and an IK so it can be controlled via PC software such as Rhino GH.

Cheers,

i would recommend arduino just because it has very large community for support
