The EMGRobotics 2 Channel Smartphone/Tablet Servo Controller (A2SCB_M/S) connects your Android/iOS smartphone or tablet to multiple RC servos using the headphone jack. A DSP algorithm running in the servo controller decodes the audio tones generated by the smartphone/tablet and translates the tones into servo control signals.
Any device that can generate audio tones…Continue
I got most the hack of the Hexbug Spider done last night, but broke one of the battery wires where it connected to the board. I checked the robot out by holding the wire to where it connects to the board, and the robot moved, so I figured all I needed to do was to solder it back onto the board, then aim the infared sensor and led. But it was late and decided to go to bed and finish it today.
I got back to it this afternoon and managed to solder the wire onto the board. I…Continue

Using the TI MSP430G2553 to Build a Serial Six Channel RC Servo Controller
by Eric Gregori
The MSP430G2553 ( http://www.ti.com/product/MSP430G2553) is the biggest part listed in the TI Value Line.
16K of Flash, 512 Bytes of SRAM, 10bit - 8Channel ADC, UART -- In a 20 pin DIP for $2.80…
This low-cost hack ($44.30 including the cost of the Hexbug spider) converts the remote control toy into a C programmable autonomous robot with a IR range sensor "eye" and a TI MSP430G2231 16bit brain. After this hack the robot will be able to turn left or right and walk…Continue
Rocker-Bogie Suspension – A Challenge worthy of MINDS-i
The rocker-Bogie suspension is a suspension used on the mars rovers. It uses six wheels that are independently powered by a motor and the front and rear wheels are able to steer.
