If anyones interested in open source / free robotics engineering tools, check out my latest work in progress @ www.roboshack.com. I have identified and tested nearly a complete set of engineering tools all open source, in other words free :). Including schematic capture, pcb layout, rapid software development, bug tracking and more. I'm still looking hard for an open source 3D mechanical engineering tool suitable for what we do. You will find some setup instructions and an automated script to download and install all of the tools. Let me know what you think.
At last, June is here, anyone see any of the VIA Nano-ITX motherboards in stock anywhere?
Still waiting patiently for the Nano-ITX motherboards, prior to this month all of the distributors where saying that they would have them available by Jan 2005. Now they are saying June, anyone have any insight as to what happened and if there's some way of getting one sooner, maybe in a bare bone system?
DARPA Grand Challenge team recruiting (Southern California †` Orange County)
Team RoboShack intends to field an entry to the DARPA Grand Challenge 2005, we have our vehicle platform and 80% of the electronics package, however, our welder / fabrication expert has left our team, leaving this position vacant. We are looking for a highly motivated and skilled replacement.
Interested individuals should send the following information to: email@example.com
Required information: 1) List of skills 2) List of tools and equipment 3) Schedule and availability, i.e. the ability to work nights and weekends.
Any other information you wish to share is also appreciated.
That is a most excellent piece of work, please post some videos of your robot walking and moving when you have the time.
I know that what I am about to share isn't even the slightest bit related to robotics, however, its definitely work saying: my wife came home from the doctors office this morning with a prescription that forbids her from speaking for a period of no less than 72 hours. I was totally and completely amazed at this, I'm planning on going out tonight after work and purchasing at minimum a dozen roses...... and send them to my doctor with a thank you note attached. Not only did she manage to keep my wife quite for 72 hours, my insurance covered the bill.....
How do you consider that a good news / bad news situation, I see that as a GOOD news and More GOOD news situation; I've been involved in manufacturing and what not for a very long time and fully understand how all of this works. The good news being, VIA is in the process of manufacturing the Nano-ITX and the other good news is that I will be able to get some. So what if I have to wait a little more! I would have to say that a (standardized) 4.5in x 4.5in motherboard is well worth the wait.
I periodically check the VIA site for any info on the Nano- ITX product, and finally, this very morning, the Nano-ITX is under the listed products. Could this in fact mean that we will be able to get our hands on them soon?
