Vex Robotics – Good News and Bad

Posted on Sunday, March 19th, 2006

I got word today from Larry Barello that Radioshack will no longer be carrying the Vex Robotics System. This is sad news, as Vex was really the first general purpose robotics system to be carried by a major retailer. I’ve had a great deal of fun with mine! The upside of this news is that […]

Vex Kit Arrives!

Posted on Tuesday, November 29th, 2005

The Vex Kit, which I won in a recent eBay auction, arrived today! At 500+ parts in the kit, I decided I better do something to keep track of them all. I headed to Frys and picked up a couple clear plastic boxes, which can be subdivided into up to about 30 compartments each. I […]

Vex Kit – OTW

Posted on Thursday, November 24th, 2005

Purchased a Vex kit on eBay this week. I was a little worried about making the purchase, as the seller only had one purchase feedback (another vex kit), but I got him to send me a number of picture of himself, photo identity and picture of him holding the kit. The next best thing to […]

Introducing the Nokia N810 Internet Tablet!……meh

Posted on Thursday, October 18th, 2007

Yesterday, Nokia soft-launched their 3rd internet tablet product, the N810. The device will be available for purchase in about a month for around $470. I have been an avid 770 and N800 user, but I am not at all convinced that I need one or that the changes made to this latest device are for […]

For the love of god, could someone please make a decent touchscreen technology?

Posted on Wednesday, June 13th, 2007

Touchscreen techologies have been around since the early days of desktop computing and unlike virtually every other basic computer building block, have advanced little. There still remain 3 basic technologies widely deployed in consumer oriented devices: * Resistive panels * Capacitive panels * Active Digitzers (Wacom style techology found in Tablet PCs, mainly) All three […]

Robots, Robots, Robots!

Posted on Friday, September 29th, 2006

I haven’t been very active with robotics related activities of late, but am starting to feel ready to engage myself. The TRC is currently at the start of the First Lego League season, which really doesn’t interest me much (although the new NXT kits are far cooler than the previous Mindstorms). The FRC season is […]

Eat, Breathe, Sleep Robots

Posted on Saturday, January 14th, 2006

It is now a week since the 2006 FRC competition was announced and the TRC is hard at work. I have been at school every day this week except Wednesday. Tomorrow (really today at this point), Ryan is coming over and we are going to mock up some hopper designs using cardboard, duct tape and […]

Seattle Wireless Hacknight – 12/13/05

Posted on Wednesday, December 14th, 2005

Tonight’s Seattle Wireless Hacknight was held at Redline, just a few blocks away from Rob’s place. Despite this fact, for some reason Hacknight has wandered far and wide without ever holding a meeting there. Hacknight has been hopping between venues the last month or so, after the sudden and inadequately explained closure of the Capitol […]

Robo-cam V3

Posted on Friday, December 9th, 2005

Stayed up late having far too much fun with my Vex kit. I am absolutely giddy with excitement. I am relatively new to “real” robotics and I just love jumping in head first into a challenging subject, making lots of mistakes and getting my hands dirty. Tonight, I took apart the panning mechanism, as I […]
