Re: Robot arm: feedback sensory (Skutter v0.2)

there's something we haven't tried a flux capacitor!
as with nuclear you need kwaliphicashuns...

wait... think of a mem-resistor, but one that remembers magnetic flux... which would be a mem-inducer rather than a 'flux capacitor'.

I know its unrelated, but it just came to me.

having all these different ways in the mag would surely get some experimentation going in schools.

using distance measurement should work if you have a 270deg helix/slope around the base 8-)

Re: Robot arm: feedback sensory (Skutter v0.2)

getting a perfect gradient along a curve is to me quite difficult. you could however have a wedge along a curve which would have the same effect as the gradient without banding.

Re: Cases - fundamental problem

the only other option I can think of is short flexable extentions, to ease the stress, of which would be encased by the case to hold them imn place.

Re: Cases - fundamental problem

I see where ya getting at... the cases need a way of supporting the connectors on ALL sides without preventing connections being made. like a tiny lips to support the in-out forces... yes that sounds odd but you get the idea.

Re: USB Robotic Arm

<t>I"ve just gone and bought one and am wondering… have you used a PC psu to power it, just until you get a more efficient transformer… more importantly, would it be able to run on 5 volt without any extra components, cept maybe a fuse.<br/> <br/> its interesting that you can use a ps3 controller......
