The International Humanoid Robotics Exposition went well and so did the software and hardware interfaces. So far, the HIS Humanoid International Study has extended to the USA, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and China. I'm looking forward to additional travel to new countries to continue this project.
WIN XP is now handling at least one humanoid platform for programming and motion control. One humanoid was down with an ankle problem requiring some maintenance which went smoothly. Due to a high volume of use, this humanoid has had approximately 12 mechanical repairs involving arms, legs, ankles, and shoulders.
At least 35 projects are all going on at the same time to accelerate the accomplishments per unit time. However, not all projects are updated in the projects section. I'll try to get to this in time. Some of the newer projects are hardware related. At this time the majority of the projects involve extensive software.
Some thought is being placed into the concept of a book to document the rapid development of humanoid inventions. I will need much of my laboratory equipment and will have to pick that up during another trip to the laboratory which may happen later this year.
Some time was spent on a new invention for the observatory, i.e. a new kind of telescope. Additional time was spent on the world's famous remote robotic telescope. I hope to have some clear weather after the rainy season passes to get some clear proof of concept images through the scope. A third invention was designed which directly involves accelerating the capabilities of Otis Observatory and establishing its perimeter to new countries.
Some work was aimed towards developing a safety device for world wide use. In addition to a hardware product, a virtual product is in the design that encompasses the humanoid robot. It will be interesting to measure the results once the VR programming is completed.
A small amount of time was spent studying a computer cam and examining the potential range in imaging applications. Another study was imaging software related to gain numerous functions for vision and clarity. A lens study was completed that compared various EFLs using several virtual oculars. This went excellent, and the gain, in addition to optical, produced some exquisite results, worthy of paper publication.
