Scorbot Bot III software?

I am a high school drafting and engineering teacher.  I have been given a ScorBot III robot (cool) without software. So if anyone knows where I can get my hands on it let me know. If is cheap!

Help With Warcraft III World Editor

I have recently been creating a tower defense map with the warcraft world editor and I am just starting to make all the waves. My map is a Solo TD where the creeps move through multiple checkpoints. The problem I'm having is that if a creep manages to step into a region that he is supposed to later on (if someone mazes and makes it so they have to go through the last region before the first) then the creep dies. I was wondering if there is a way to make it so they HAVE to enter the first regions before the others apply to them. There is a way to do it with variables but that way is going to take me FOREVER. I was wondering if there is a faster way than just creating a load of variables so when a unit walks into a region it records it and after a certain number the next region is activated. That way also has a few flaws that would be difficult to maneuver around. Thanks in advance! The red words in the picture say "makes them go that way". It did't show up as well in JPEG form.

Palm III and Palm VIIx uses? Answered

Got a really old Palm III and Palm VIIx. The Palm VIIx has wireless capability, but the network was shutdown in 2004. As far as I know it should be able to connect to wifi, but can't for some reason. Anyway, anyone have any ideas for these besides as paperweights? I would really like to use them for something. I can't really use them for data storage since I only have around 8MB of room, but I heard something about linux for them?? The IR function could be useful for something too I suppose. Any ideas would be appreciated! Thanks!

Competitor Rival III AMR Contest gun

Alright, since my orangeboard has decided to revolt against me posting pictures on it I will post them here. Unlike the Springbreaker, this gun is fully functional and working perfectly. The Competitor Rival III is an Adaptive Magazine Rifle meaning you can shoot more types of ammunition with one gun. I made it so magazine well is adjustible so it can shoot sizes ranged from gray connectors to yellow rods. I have pictures here of it's blue rod magazine and it's yellow rod magazine. Why do I have pictures here you may ask. Well, I haven't built a rifle since, hmmmm....., Springbreaker? Anyway I want to know what you think of it and if it really does look as good as I think it does. Also how to take better take pictures of it (I'm so use to making handguns and submachine gun sized guns!). What angles should I try, so it shows off the most detail because as you can see it was kinda hard. Anyway thanks for looking and commenting, this will be posted in the contest with Competitor III so good luck!

Electronic Toolkit

I do some work with the FIRST Robotics kids and it is amazing to see what they are doing.  Big problem though seems to be a general lack of electrical test equipment.  They don't really have the money to buy oscilloscopes, function generators, CAN and I2C analyzers.   So I got one of the M3 Discovery boards from STmicro and it is really cool.  It has four 5MS A/Ds on it plus a whole host of other features(CAN, I2C, Serial etc.). http://www.st.com/web/en/catalog/tools/PF254044 So it got me thinking. Why couldn't we turn one of these chips into an "All-In-One" electrical toolkit and keep it cheap($50-$60, BOM ~$20).  It would be fairly easy to turnkey. I threw together some simple specs, what do people think. 1) Will supply general use drivers so a user can use the app or write their own. 2) Oscilloscope   a. Two Channel     i. 2MHZ of Analog Bandwidth per channel     ii. 10MS/s per channel     iii. Trigger on rising edge, falling edge, on-command, run-stop actions     iv. Datalogging for extended time periods at up to 10hz per channel (data stored directly to console),  maybe higher rate will  just have to see 3) Serial – 2 Ports   a. Multi selectable protocol w/slew control     i. RS232, RS422, RS485 4) CANBus – 1 port 5) I2C – 1 port 6) SPI  - 1 port 7) 8 Discrete User Selectable 8) Function Generator   a. Two Channel      i. 1MS/s small signal change      ii. 250kS/s full range change      iii. 0-3.3VDC buffered output  9) PWM - 4 Channels

Covering

I am building a Sig Tiger rubber band-powered model. I know it's wimpy, but I don't have a budget for anything larger, or a place to fly it. My question is if anyone has experience with model airplane covering. Specifically, I read an article in an old RC Modeler magazine that said plastic wrap, attached with a glue stick, made excellent covering for light models, but that Monokote and Ultrakote will crush light balsa models when it shrinks. Has anyone ever tried this? I'm supposed to use tissue, according to the plans, but ew.Also, I have an ancient U-Control Waco SRE biplane that my uncle built when he was deployed to Korea. It has an old O.S. Max III 35 that has no hope of running again, but I want to at least recover it. Any suggestions for removing old covering? It seems to be Monokote-type stuff.

Im trying to get it to be smooth the whole way through to 100%more or less the code is like:PWM = PWM+2which I then wait 10 mSecs and loop it again...I have tried to put in some conditional checking to check to see if the current level of PWM is at a certain threshold..and then only loop it again after a longer delay (say 300mSecs) or something..I tried to search.. ut Im not sure on how to get a CONSISTANTLY smooth fade...ot smooth to say 50-60%..then a visual jump in brightness and then smooth to 100%..any ideas or links on the subject are appreciated.Thanks

Social Engagement

I’m a university student in marketing currently working on a school project. I am required to do some research on social media and I was hoping I’d be able to talk to someone who is involved in your website’s digital publishing or audience engagement. Maybe a site manager or product manager would be wonderful. I have chosen the “Do It Yourself” industry, because it is of great interest to me and your website has caught my eye. I’d really appreciate any feedback you can offer me to help me proceed with my research and a phone conversation would be even better. It would only take 5 minutes of your time to answer 5 of my simple questions. If you are unable to contact me, please see the following questions below, and you may reply the answers to me via email at [falsabag@ryerson.ca]. If you would like me to call you instead, I’d be more than happy to, just as long as you provide me with your number. I will provide my number if you want that too.  1) Would you say that your company has an established social strategy? 2) Do you believe that keeping consumers engaged on your site is beneficial? 3) How is your company’s social strategy measured? 4) Do you currently have commenting tools for the content your site generates? a. If yes i. Who are you currently using? ii. Are you happy with the level of engagement being delivered? iii. What is best part of the service being provided? iv. Does your current provider offer analytics? v. Are you using any other social media analytic tools? vi. What is the one feature that you believe is missing with the current offering? vii. What price range is your current service in – set range? b. If No i. Are you aware that there are platforms that allow you to generate comments from content that you create greater engagement? ii. Would capturing data from those who visit and interact with your site be beneficial to your organization? iii. Would your organization value real time analytics and commentary from your content consumers? 5) Thank you for taking the time to answer my survey.  Would you like someone to contact you regarding potential social engagement solutions? If so, may I have your contact information, such as your name and phone number.

So far I have a circuit that i plan on modeling my LED array after since it was readily available for me to dissect. The following is an LED array. I know that there is a diode rectifier bridge built in there and a smoothing capasitor but there are to components i do not recognize they are connected at the positive and negative ends of the circuit.

I know Cellulose insulation is shredded newsprint treated with chemicals to make it mold and creature resistant, and on a small scale maybe that process could be a fun experiment, but not for 1000 sq ft. My next thought (and current favorite) is to acquire styrofoam packing material (box inserts, packing peanuts, un-used food and drink containers) and mill them up to about the in to some uniform size. Then get some cheap plastic bag/ tube material and fill strips with a couple of inches of styrofoam. Then the blanket o’ foam could just be laid out over the existing insulation in the attic. Now, before I start this endeavor I thought I would check with the instuctable think tank to figure out: A) any better ideas 2) what R rating a 3 inch loose fill blanket of styrofoam and plastic would have III) Is this a terrible idea due to moisture being trapped under the plastic Also in a previous forum someone suggested re-routing their dryer vent to the attic and I was wondering if anyone had tried that and/or anyone’s thoughts on that. -Odo

LED Reef tank light ( auto dimming)

I am in the process of redesigning a LED reef light using Luxeon III White and Royal Blue. These will let my coral grow the best. The biology of it I have down to a science... My circuitry however is still in its infancy. I have been following several of the instructables but i am at a point where I need some help... I can kind of get to the simple on off in my schematics (given I do not know what my power supply is yet) but as I read in Circuits-for-using-High-Power-LED , I now see that it can be a little more complicated if I want to preserve these slightly costly lights... So that leads to many questions from which most I might be able to get from the 12 books on electronics I purchased and borrowed, but something tells me that experienced people might have more practical solutions for me. What is needed to operate a 24 led array (Luxeon 3, Vf = 3.9V, 1000mA Each LED) from 115VAC to the DC? Now for a topic that I am having trouble with finding information to, back in the day I had an electronic ballast for a metal halide reef light that would fade on to full output over the course of 2 hours and would dim the same when turning off. this ballast had to cords on to supply constant power( i would assume) and the other to control the switch that would allow it to fade on and off.... I would like to simulate this sunrise sunset effect with my LED array? I appreciate your time and help with this project of mine.

Walking With Dinosaurs

Following 68 million years of extinction, dinosaurs once again roam the earth in an extraordinary new theatrical production, Walking With Dinosaurs - The Live Experience, which is based on the Emmy Award® winning BBC Series and is currently on a 2 year arena tour of North America. Staged by Broadway director Scott Faris with beyond cinematic realism, Walking With Dinosaurs shows how carnivorous dinosaurs evolved to walk on two legs, and how the herbivores fended off their more agile predators.A team of over 50 craftsmen worked in a space big enough to house a 747 for over one year to bring the cast of fifteen dinosaurs to life. Audiences of all ages have been amazed and spellbound as they experience the dinosaurs, who are as fascinating and terrifying on stage as they were in real life. This is a show that could only fit in large arenas - as the creatures are so absolutely immense in size. It is the closest that audiences will ever get to experiencing the time when dinosaurs ruled the earth. The show is brought to North America by Immersion Edutainment, led by Executive Director Bruce Mactaggart.An exhilarating arena show, Walking With Dinosaurs - The Live Experience uses high-tech, state-of-the-art animatronics to present15 life size dinosaurs (up to 45 feet tall) such as the Tyrannosaurus Rex and Stegosaurus in a highly theatrical setting with a paleontologist narrating, who is our guide for the evening. The dinosaurs are designed and built by a team of artists headed by Sonny Tilders who worked with Jim Henson's Creature Workshop on such films as The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and Star Wars: Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.The tour will is now playing Philadelphia's Wachovia Complex from August 15th -19th and will then play Columbus, Ohio; Greenville (SC), Washington DC, Norfolk, East Rutherford, Winston-Salem, Nashville, Dallas and arrives in the New York area at the Continental Airlines Arena in New Jersey from October 3rd - 7th.
