Figured I'd start a new topic here to highlight any interesting projects that may pop up.  I'll post primarily to Facebook, but I'll try to post the non-conversational, larger items here.  It's a heck of a lot easier to find things here.

For those who do Facebook, here's a link to the normal feed:

More to come...

I'm starting to acquire parts for a new antweight.  Progress will be slow, details will be scarce.  It will be a "filler" project to work on while I'm finishing up larger projects.

I'm still missing a weapon motor and controller, but have most of the other interesting bits above.

I've been working on a new balancing skateboard project.  I'd built a different one a few years ago, this one has a lot of upgrades and was a great stretch of my machining, software, and electronics skills.  I've added a detailed build report on

I'm hoping to post some video of this thing once we get a sunny weekend, but the weather hasn't been cooperating.

Progress Reports / Angry Accountant - Out of Retirement!

Sparkfun Electronics is based in my neighborhood, and they have just announced an antweight competition in June as part of the autonomous vehicle competition.  Since I've been spending a lot of time in the garage lately working on a new skateboard, I thought it'd be fun to dust off the ol' accountant and see what shape she was left in.

She's missing a weapon motor, her battery is dead, the wheel guards are bent to hell, and the front pulley is in bad shape.

However, in her storage box was a spare weapon motor, spare pulleys, spare drive motors, spare wheels, etc.  So other than a battery, I should be in good shape to get her back in the game.  No major redesign or rebuild, more of shaking the dust off.

I fired off an e-mail to long-time teammate Ted Z., and he's going to build something new for the competition too.  A Team Cosmos reunion?? Sounds like it!
