Tinkering — July 25h

We had our usual tinkering get together on Saturday. Here are some of the things that happened:

* Chris & Anna decorated the walls with cool space invaders stickers!

*Added a spiffy new doorbell to the space.

R&D Doorbell

* We got the 3pi robot working and layed out a quick course for it. It can follow lines and solve mazes. Surprisingly quick for such a little thing…

* Gav & Ev got started with an optical theremin project. We’re using optical distance sensors to detect the location of the hand, then feeding the data to the PC as MIDI information

Plus a bunch of other stuff that didn’t get captured by my camera.
