Homemade Men Of War Game Console
posted October 24 2010 11:20.25 by Giorgos Lazaridis

I made this Men Of War game console for playing this excellent on-line game faster. This console puts all the important shortcuts in the palm of my left hand. But most important is the joystick with the automatic Direct Control Mode engagement. Upon joystick movement, the console send not only the arrow key...

internet controlled robotic arm
posted July 21 2010 21:41.22

High school students at Cornerstone Academy designed and built this robotic arm that is controlled over the Internet. This was an ambitious project for the team and they succeeded with the support from a professor and two mechanical engineering students from the University of Florida. With so many obstacles to overcome the project completed just a day before the Technology Student Association (TSA) Nationals in Baltimore.
Hard work was rewarded though since the robotic arm took first place in Electronics Research and Experimentation category, nothing less to expect from such a well build project.
You can find more photos here and complete info in the TSA Technical Report.

Coffee Machine module
posted July 20 2010 20:14.31 by Giorgos Lazaridis

This is the next module for the Instant Greek style coffee robot (AKA Frappé) that i am making right now. This module is responsible for measuring and putting the proper amount of sugar and coffee. I use a worm shaft to push the material, and a stepper motor to control the rota...

Pic24 tv display
posted June 24 2010 20:13.19

John Burton decided to build a circuit that could display line and pixel drawing on a TV using a PIC, after some attempts his efforts paid back.
The first attempt (apart from the test phrase hello) was an analogue clock and now John is able to display also text.
Nice job and another cool application for this powerfull microcontroller.
Complete info on the steps of the project can be found here and here.

Robot with mouse for navigation
posted June 1 2010 15:22.15

Scott Sumpter presents an autonomous robot that uses as distance measurement an optical mouse for accurate readings. Actually there are two robots. the first one, equiped with 2 limit switches for object detection, navigates its way around an object, then communicates the path it took back to another robot, which can then avoid the object without sensors. More info can be found here.
