So, I'll update on what has be going on for the last few months.
New Projects..I've started researching/working on a new project, which is very ambitious. I won't go into details just yet, but it'll involve various ARM Boards, cameras and servos. I'm currently busy acquiring parts and learning about them and various software libraries. Some parts are kickstarter projects which have been delayed.
One of the parts that'll be in the project will be the BeagleBone Black, hopefully this will be better than the Raspberry Pi for some number crunching.
Making Parts..One of my latest acquisitions has been a Replicator 2 :) A Desktop 3D printer. This will be perfect for creating parts on all of my projects in the future. It has already proved useful for fixing things around the house.
The Replicator 2 is a great 3D printer, which was up and running in within minutes of its arrival. Although I've spent some time trying to fine tune it, and learning what it is good at and not so good at.
First thing I printed was this gear cube (dowloaded design from thingieverse)..
