TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE TUBES!!!!
Our new home, come visit us….we’re lonely. 😦
After building many functional but somewhat unfinished looking bots, [Tomdf] really wanted to produce something that felt “complete”. Pingbot is the result and here’s how [Tomdf] describes it:
Pingbot is a very small (38mm diameter), usb rechargeable, programmable, musical, remote control robot designed for maximum fun and danceability.
Though I wasn’t inclined to dance I did find myself smiling watching the video. Pingbot does look finished and has quite a bit of personality too. The brains inside the Pingbot are a Picaxe 08m2. With a 110mAh Li-Po battery, Pingbot can dance happily for a quite a while too. When juice is running low, just plug into your USB port for a recharge. You can find all the info and schematics on the instructible as well as the files to print your own Pingbot shell.
The Afghan Box Camera Project provides a record of the kamra-e-faoree (instant camera) which as a living form of photography is on the brink of disappearing in Afghanistan.
In this video, Qalam Nabi, one of the last two remaining box camera photographers in Kabul demonstrates how to use his camera.
