Use an IDE cable for Mounting Arduinos

Use an IDE cable for Mounting Arduinos | Salvius Robot Project | Scoop.it

This is a convent trick I have been using which allows you to securely mount one of these boards when you pass the bread boarding stage and decide to just stick the Arduino somewhere for a while.

Salvius the Robot's insight:

I have found that the IDE cables make the perfect platform for mounting smaller Arduinos on. Even better, some of the smaller IDE cables that are used to connect floppy disk drives have almost the exact number of matching pins.

Intriguing Networks's curator insight, December 17, 2013 4:00 AM

Beefig up the Androids just took on a new meaning at Google, the R&D in the area of robotics has been led by the head of the original Android development team .With the acquisition of this serious player Boston Dynamics with military contracts still to be completed has Google just entered a whole new ball game?

luiy's curator insight, December 17, 2013 4:12 AM

Boston Dynamics recently debuted the WildCat, a four-legged robot specifically designed for speedrunning. Developed with funding from DARPA's M3 robotics-engineering program, it can gallop at around 16 miles per hour. While that may not seem very fast, it’s apparent in the top video that the company's goal wasn’t just speedrunning, but rapid movement that mimics the motions of living animals, such as horses and antelopes

Rubin, the former head of Google's Android division, hasn’t revealed many specifics about his plans for its robotics division, but the addition of Boston Dynamics offers some clues.

 

Commentators saw Google’s self-driving cars as the company playing to its strength: intelligent software systems that can be embedded in existing hardware and vehicles. However, by bringing the hardware skills of Boston Dynamics into the fray, it appears that Google is moving beyond robotic car control systems, and into custom robots designed to handle any number of physical tasks.

Cameron Hare's curator insight, March 27, 2014 4:53 AM

This website addresses some of the current findings in robotic designs, mainly 4 legged robots that can run and move much like animals do. It also addresses the major companies Google and Amazon and their current use of their own robotic resources and how Google may soon be beyond the robotic car systems and into the custom robots that can perform physical tasks. This website is useful for pointing out not only the advances we have made in robotics but what we are heading towards and the companies that may be the ones making use of it, I plan on making reference with this information about these companies in the essay and how they will probably be the ones marketing the robots to the public in the next 5 to 10 years.

When good chat bots go bad

When good chat bots go bad | Salvius Robot Project | Scoop.it

The conversation started out awful and was totally incoherent. However, after about ten iterations of the two talking back and forward, my program started replying with some of the new replies it had "learned" from talking with CleverBot. This progressed to the point where they could have an almost completely coherent conversation with each other. The only problem is that my program was still only able to provide replies from the selection of statements that CleverBot had said to it.

Robotic Hands with Hot Glue

Robotic Hands with Hot Glue | Salvius Robot Project | Scoop.it
Salvius the Robot's insight:

This was a great project that shows how to create a robotic hand out of hot glue. I his video he refers to hot glue as wax but its basically the same thing. The hands he shows how to build are fairly robust despite their method of construction. I have built hands in a similar way using some bike chain rather than ink tubes but the concept is remarkably similar. What I like about the pen tubes is that you could give this project bonus points for recycling. You could use any flexible material in substitute of the ink tubes.
