A quick post. Today, 2th Easter day, I was cleaning up my room, throwing away some stuff I don’t use any more. I also found a whole set of parts for the robotics arm I made some time ago; Here and here;

I was going to throw them away, or one of you guys want to have ’em? Post a comment with e-mail and I can send the set to you for shipping costs only. Oh yeah and this is a milled set so there extra beautiful!


All the 5 set’s I had are given away, have fun with it! I’d love to see pictures of what you do with it!

Today I finally got the chance to show you one of my latest projects, the automation of my bedroom, a domotica  controlled room. In this post I will guide you trough the process I went through making this possible:

Well how did I managed to do that? (more…)

A week ago I found this simple quarts clock and thought about the idea of making the clock turn backwards, which would be pretty easy and cool. I found this clock without a clock-face in my garage and took it apart, but when I did reversed the 2 connections to the electromagnet it still turned the right way. So I started looking for an explanation and found (more…)

Since I made my little Atmega16 avr development board I wanted to make a program to read out a Wiimotion Plus which I bought from Dealextreme for about 12 bucks. The Wiimotion Plus works with the Two Wire Interface (TWI/I2C) and since I already got the protocol working with an EEPROM chip I needed to do some investigation on this WM+. This wasn’t a big problem since I do have a Bus Pirate which is a super awesome tool for interfacing new chips without writing code! So I did not have to worry about writing code, I only had to try and find the right commands to put on the I2C communication line. So I played with the Bus Pirate and the WM+ for some time and found out that its real easy to interface the WM+.
