Ball Balancing


 

I know it’s been a while since my last post, but 2 kids and a new job take their toll 🙂

Most importantly, for this past few months, I’ve been thinking of a way to say “thank you” to my former colleagues that somehow managed to offer me the absolute best leaving present: a Meccano kit and a prepaid Maplin card (this is the equivalent of the now defunct Radioshack, for my U.S. readers) !

This is a slightly different post for me, in that it’s about some help I gave to 2 guys in Germany, working on a hydraulic anti-roll system for a tractor.
Wow… I never though I would be working on “revolutionising the agriculture” as they’ve put it… 🙂

Android IOIO Wii Nunchuck


I’ve already written a post about how to connect the Wii Nunchuck to the Lego NXT using LeJOS, and there is also information on my blog about how to do the same thing with an Arduino (though I can’t find it right now, so no easy link…).
