5bot-rakennussarja eli pehmeä lasku robottien maailmaan

Suunniteltiin ja pähkäiltiin hieman yhden yleisen teeman eli robottien ympärillä. Lopulta muodostui ajatus rakennussarjan kehittämisestä erityisesti robotiikan aloittelijoita ajatellen. Eli helppo kokonaisuus mekaniikkaa ja elektroniikkaa niin, että alkuun pääsee helposti. Idea on, että rakennussarjan avulla voi tutustua robotiikan perusteisiin ja kehittää ymmärryksen karttuessa sitten omien mieltymysten mukaan joko mekaniikkaa, eletroniikkaa tai ohjelmistoa.

Robotic Arm Control over USB on linux

In the junkpil.. I mean in the lot of incoming hardware was a new toy. A usb controller toy robot arm. Quick googling revealed it is pretty common toy and there were already some solutions on how to control it without using the original software.

Tilatiistai 25.2

Tiistaina oli jälleen perinteinen avointen ovien päivä (kuten joka tiistai). Pajalle oli ilmestynyt pari uutta konetta, nimittäin hiekkapuhalluskone:

Wireless charging TOH for Jolla

Here's the first wireless charging The Other Half made at Tampere Hacklab. It has a custom 3D-printed case, Samsung S3 wireless receiver, and connectors made with copper tape and some thin wire. There were some issues in placing the wireless receiver. It did not work when placed in the center of the phone, possibly due to interference caused by battery. Placing it in the bottom half of the case solved the issue. This is the first prototype and improved versions will be made later.

3D printed The Other Half for Jolla

Our friends at Jolla today released The Other Half developer kit. Tampere Hacklab 5w got an exclusive pre-release version of the Jolla TOH 3D-model in the end of December. The model is the exact CAD model from which the TOH's are built from. As the first step we decided to print it without any modifications with our Ultimaker 3D printer. The package contains also a 3D model of the phone's back side which can be useful while designing new hardware. The 3D models are released in .stl and .stp formats.
