Ended up pre-testing all the synth modules on a breadboard prior to building on the PCB.

How I created the layout and artwork for the synth’s panel front, as well as a wiring diagram for the components on the back, using Inkscape – a free 2D vector drawing package.

A brief post to give an idea of my plans for building the Music From Outer Space Experimenter Board.

I’m super excited about a new project. It has nothing to do with robotics or microcontrollers – at least at present it doesn’t. :)

Developing code natively on the Raspberry Pi is not ideal for larger projects so I decided to explore cross compilation to attain better productivity. This post describes how I set up cross compilation using Ubuntu via Parallels 10 on OS X.

The next step in the Blue Block Challenge is getting the simple object detect code that I’ve already developed on the Mac, running on the Raspberry Pi using the PiCamera via its MMAL C interface.

As part of the Blue Block Challenge I’m using the OpenCV library to detect and track objects based on their color only. In the process I created an Mac application to help develop the algorithms.

While visiting the mini maker faire last month at OMSI, I discovered a local robotics club called PARTS (Portland Area Robotics Society) and managed to attend their most recent meeting – which are all held on the first Saturday of each month. It was perfect timing too, for two reasons: First, the meeting dealt with […]

Now that the first version of NavBot is complete it is time to think about how to scale things up… and an 8 bit Atmel microcontroller is not the answer.
