Charruino 1.0 (Arduino robot)

My first robot based on Arduino, just a simple light-seeking robot. I built it following the "Easy Arduino Robot" tutorial from www.letsmakerobots.com. However, I didn't use a servo for controlling the direction.

STEMulate Learning has Launched!

STEMulate Learning has Launched! | Arduino Focus | Scoop.it

"Scrap-heap Supercomputing" workshops using surplus equipment have already shown tremendous development of interest in STEM studies for middle-school through college-level participants! These short-term workshops also contributed more than 4 years worth of computing power in barely 3 months total time to solving global issues such as cures for childhood diseases and cancer, as well as the search for clean water resources and clean energy technologies. Project STEMulate Learning needs your support, so check us out at RocketHub (http://www.rockethub.com/projects/3814-stemulate-learning)!

FIRST Robotics Northstar Regional

FIRST Robotics Northstar Regional | Arduino Focus | Scoop.it
The Morris Area High School team (The Plaid Pillagers) was competing in FIRST Robotics for their second year and won the Imagery Award and must have been serious contenders for the Team Spirit Award. They had some technical glitches that pushed them down in the final standings of the competition, but they learned a ton and had a great time!

It will be hard for a newcomer like TinkerForge's microcontroller platform to reach the same level of community support provided to the Arduino platform, but ups to them and hopefully we will see a lot more such open-source hardware systems!

Say Hello To BoardX, The DIY Robotics Electronic Kit | Arduino Focus | Scoop.it
Comparisons are sometimes unbecoming. In the case of BoardX, however, it’s absolutely needed. Turns out an inventive DIY enthusiast needed a platform with more oomph than your average Arduino chip. What he came up with was BoardX.

Making the Arduino talk, beep and sing | Arduino Focus | Scoop.it
A while back we built a Speakjet project for the Arduino. It allowed us to send sound effects, and program robotic speech to the speakers.

It wasn't terribly intuitive, programming it phonetically, so we added a text to speech ship, the TTS256.
