learning robot

Hey guys. friend and i are working on a project. we are trying to build a robot that will basically be able to follow a path. if there are obstacles in front it will go around them and then continue to the finishing point. no we also want it to learn about its surrounding. so if we bring the robot back to its starting point it will be able to get to the finish with out bumping into objects.we are planing to adopt this robot here https://www.instructables.com/id/Make-a-wall-avoiding-Robot!/?ALLSTEPSwhat do u guys think is it possible and if so how.the robot will learn by creating a grid in its memory using multi-dimensional arrays.

Learning Lifestyle

Here's how I describe Instructables in 10 seconds: The world's biggest Show & Tell, where people share what they do and how they do it. I've found this to be the best way to quickly introduce new people to the site and give them a sense of what's there. The phrase "Show & Tell" reminds people about the best part of grade school: there's entertainment, inspiration, and usually some unexpected, surprising, and most importantly fun learning.Instructables falls into a broad category I've started calling the "Learning Lifestyle" - it's the way creative, curious people approach life. Just like a grade school Show & Tell, a Learning Lifestyle can be entertaining, inspirational, and educational. The best kind of education is serendipitous -- you simply keep your eyes open to opportunities, and are excited and surprised by what you find. The Instructables community lives the Learning Lifestyle. We have Instructables on subjects our community is passionate about, and because people's passions are so diverse, the Instructables they produce are inherently entertaining, inspiring, and surprising. It's great when someone can search the site and find a specific useful project, but I absolutely love it when someone is inspired by the projects on Instructables to create -- and share! -- their own projects. The Learning Lifestyle is all about inspiring viral creativity.So, the next time your run into someone else with a Learning Lifestyle (usually easy to spot; I always find them to be the most interesting people at parties), invite them to join you at the World's Biggest Show and Tell.

Effective learning

These days, internet is being used considerably by students as well as by the teachers. I think, moving towards electronic books and materials will help the students to learn better.Huge amount of college funds are spent on books and other study material. In addition to this, they have to be carried all around campus. The relationship between students and the existing study materials is getting difficult. So it makes sense, for the teachers and students alike to look for alternatives.Taking a step forward in this direction, I have started using electronic flashcards in my classroom. We use a website called http://www.funnelbrain.com to create electronic flashcards which includes video, photos,audio and text related to the study materials. It creates an environment for students to have an interactive experience and also with its collaborative approach helps students memorize and learn better.

Learning Redstone

I'm here today to teach you how to have fun with Redstone, now if you don't, you may just jump into a Minecraft sand well and drown. Okay, first thing is first, the BASICS. You may already know that there are what we call 'Logic Gates' in all forms of machines from a computer to a simple on and off switch. We are going to be talking about the main logic gates for now. So let's get started. The NOT Gate: The NOT Gate is what I think is the easiest logic gate to comprehend in Minecraft. It is basically an inverter. It inverts the input. For example, if I were to take an input of Redstone that is on, it would invert it and give an output of Redstone that is off.If it were off, it would be an output of on. This is one of the most used Redstone logic gates. The OR Gate: The OR Gate is also VERY simple to understand, and is also called a Universal Logic Gate, this is because you can use this gate to make any other gate existent. OR basically means 'One input OR the other input  OR both will give us an output'. This is like saying 'Jeff's dog will get a treat if he jumps in the air OR he rolls over, OR does both'. This is also easy to comprehend. (The NOR Gate is the same as the OR Gate except its output is inverted) The AND Gate: The AND Gate reciprocates the OR gate except for one major difference. Instead of 'If one OR the other is on the output is on', it is 'If one AND the other are on the output is on, otherwise it is off'. So what this is saying is that you need to have BOTH inputs on in order to have the output on. This is like saying 'Jeff needs to turn the handle AND push the door to open it'. (The NAND Gate is the same as an AND Gate except its output is inverted, the NAND Gate is also a universal gate) The XOR Gate: The XOR Gate is also very similar to the OR gate but instead of 'One or the other or both', it is 'One or the other'. XOR means 'Exclusive OR', meaning only one of the inputs can be on or else I wont turn on. This is very important when dealing with Redstone calculators or ALUs. It is one of the main functions of a Redstone Adder or Subtractor. (The XNOR Gate is the same as an XOR Gate but its output is inverted) Those are all of the main basic logic gates I'm going to take you through today! These ones are the most important ones to be used and can help people a lot. There are PLENTY more to go through but that would be a bit much documentation for me to handle. If you need any help or need some easy visuals, you can go to StephennJF's YouTube page, or you can also go to bennyscube's YouTube page for help too.

Learning about electrical dohickies

I'm not proud of this, I don't know very much about electronics, electricity and the components used. However, what I do know is that when there are three poky things on the end the thing-a-mabobber you either have to put it into a thingy with three holes or, if there are only two holes, you have to get a hammer and beat in the third hole. After that my electrical knowledge wanes.So I'm trying to find an avenue to increase my knowledge about the subject but I'm having a hard time at it. I've checked out books from the library but, being that those books are written by engineers, they're coded so that only those who posses the engineers genome can understand them. I stopped by a local community college, explained to an instructor there what I was wanting to learn and after a few minutes he tells me that I'd have to spend the next year or so learning electrical theory before I could even get started doing what I'm interested in doing. Maybe he's right, but I just want to cover all my bases before diving in.I have no urge to become an electrical engineer, but I would like to know things like how to repair an extension cord correctly and safely. I'd like to know how to hook up a small DC motor to an AC power supply, use a bread board to make blinking lights or something then transfer them to something more permanent. I'd like to know how to wire up a light table, know what rating of switch I would need and why. So nothing all that difficult, or should I say nothing I think is all that difficult.I know the standard reply here is "just start playing with stuff" but considering that this is electricity and components can add up money wise, there is a risk of fire, and I have no urge to give myself electroshock therapy, I was wondering if anyone here could at least point me in a direction to start. I've considered getting one of those electrical sets that you get for kids to learn with but I don't know if that's a decent place to start or not.So any feedback would be very much appreciated.Take Care, ChrisP.S. I'm just joking about getting a hammer and beating in a third hole. Instead you get a pair of wire cutters and cut off the poky thing that doesn't fit ;)

Show Me Your Epic Fail Projects!

Any good maker will tell you to accept and embrace the process of iteration. And a natural product of that iterative process is failure. You learn a lot by trying something, being less-than-successful, and then attempting it again. It's the act of picking yourself up and trying again that helps dissolve the fear associated with failure. I'm interested to see your most epic failures! Share photos, videos, and stories of your fails from project builds: Slumping, cracking, burned, melted, misshapen… it's all part of the learning process. Can't wait to see how you messed up. :)

Computer program learns physics

From Wired:"In just over a day, a powerful computer program accomplished a feat that took physicists centuries to complete: extrapolating the laws of motion from a pendulum's swings.Developed by Cornell researchers, the program deduced the natural laws without a shred of knowledge about physics or geometry. ...Condensing rules from raw data has long been considered the province of human intuition, not machine intelligence. It could foreshadow an age in which scientists and programs work as equals to decipher datasets too complex for human analysis."LinkThe software has a long way to come, but apparently it's showing a lot of promise.What do you guys think? If computers can do physics better than humans, does that make human physicists obsolete?

Congratulations Hands-On Learning Contest Winners

Thanks to everyone for participating in the Hands-on Learning Contest! We got a lot of great entries, and I’m very pleased with the overall quality of the entries that we received. The grand prize entry, ynze’s Make an LED Wall Piece in Class, won because of the quality of his presentation and the thought given to how other educators might be able to use the project in their own courses. If you’re launching a Maker class (yes, that’s a thing), this project demonstrates a framework for approaching guided building while still giving students the freedom to create something uniquely personal. Plus, the wall pieces look pretty cool. The other winners are equally deserving of praise. As usual, we ended up with some projects that are almost classroom-ready (the electric line aircraft, a space balloon, and invasive species control), and I fully expect that some enterprising educators will soon be using those projects with students. If you do so, shoot me a PM so I can interview you and your class. The remainder of projects are ready to be adapted for the classroom. The electrostatic motor, the tensegrity ball, and the laser-etched Aztec coin are ready to be snapped up by a teacher willing to work backwards to academically justify the project within their curriculum. Or they’ll make VERY engaging demonstrations. A special shout out to the young man responsible for launching a balloon into space. We’ve had space balloons before, but the documentation of his project was unusually detailed. If you’re launching a space balloon in the United States, that kid has blazed quite a trail for you. Well done, robotkid249. Please keep participating in these contests, because even if you didn't win a prize, you still helped to make learning more meaningful for students. If you're making hands-on teaching and learning easier for someone else, you've done a good thing (even if you don't get an electronic traffic light for your trouble.) Wade Wilgus Education Editor

Why have 'they' not made a cellphone with a learning remote?

How often are you spending more time looking for the TV, DVD, Stereo remote than the time it would actually take to just get up and push the button on the unit? Cordless phones have 'pager' function where you can press a button on the base unit causing the handset to beep. A lost cellphone may be found by ringing it. But very few manufacturers of entertainment system (that i have come across) include a "finding' feature with the units' remote control. WHY NOT? Surely Cellphone manufacturers could "easily?" include a learning remote with the rest of the 'hugely useful' features on them the we use EVERYDAY...like FM radio, biorhythms, international roaming, bottle opener. You see my theory is-- a. that I tend to know exactly where my cellphone is 99% of the time. It is personal. b. The TV, Stereo etc. remote on the other hand are communal. I mean other poeple, like my kids, use them often and thus the remote gets left ANYWHERE. So the two ideas i have put forward is 1. Learning infrared remote in a cellphone and 2. a pager for a remote (new thread pending)
