Progress Reports / Team Cosmos - Angry Accountant - A New Beginning.
« on: June 03, 2015, 10:30:55 pm »
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.

Projects / Skate Two - Team Cosmos
« on: April 22, 2015, 01:20:37 am »
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 TeamCosmos.com.



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!
« on: February 23, 2015, 08:36:21 pm »
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!
