Self Balancing Robot – V4


It’s been almost 4 years since I started playing with self balancing robots posting about the very first version, then the 2nd really unsuccessful one and finally a really jittery / impossible to control 3rd version

Same as the previous post, this is an old project that still doesn’t work properly, but will probably never have the time to fix, so I’ve decided to post the details here, in case I need to refer to them later.

Physical Face Following with OpenCV on Android


Here I am again, less than 2 days after my latest post… this must be the shortest delay ever between 2 consecutive posts.

3D Printer – Ultimaker


Hello everybody !

It’s been a while since my last post, 4 months more exactly. If we consider that the last couple of posts weren’t that “involved”, it’s been more than 6months, since January, when I did my last serious project / blogg post …
