Robot DIY Systems

leave a comment »

Ran across information on how a school is using Linux and hacked-together components to power its robotics class – this work is really exceptional and shows the true power of do it yourself and Linux. Their whole approach to robotics is outside of the box – including using a simple old mouse instead of a complex “encoder” apparatus as a pedometer, using Linux and junk computer parts to run their setup instead of expensive kits and components – the whole venture shows what can be done with some knowledge and initiative.
