My new Laboratory!!
show user profile  jareu
Wanting to expand a long list of ideas I've had for commercial products, I decided to finally set about getting some pretty nifty gear so I can get cracking with experimenting and prototyping! I'm very excited and just thought I'd share with my Maxforums family.

on the subject, is anyone else here into robotics/electronics too?

Top Left:
(hard to see) gumstix coms. Fully functional computers, the size of a stick of gum. 800mhz, 128mb ram, runs windows XP lite or linux. HDMI output, audio, usb for keyboard/mouse and optional plugin boards for ethernet, robotics and servo controllers etc. pretty fun to play with

Top Right: 1hp spindle for a CNC machine I'll be building very soon :D!

Bottom Left:
Microchip ICD2 Debugger, Bunch of microchips, Pickit3 Debugger/programmer for microchips, Oscilloscope, Zeroplus Logic Analyzer

Bottom Right:
big ass Breadboard, for experimenting easily with circuits, Powersupply (variable voltage, dual rail, 0-33volts, 3.5 amps)

Needless to say, I'm pretty freakin excited right now!!!!!

reminds me of uni days - studied micro-electronics. can't be ar5ed with all that now - buy it pre-made & stick to software. have fun !

re-minature pc for random projects - check out raspberry pi launching this month.

arm based so linux only no windows (though arm win8 might run !)

We make a lot of electronic products at work. I've often got a hand in the design, but I don't work with electronics myself that much. Much of the stuff we make starts exactly as you have it there. A breadboard, a few PICs, a digital power supply, scope.

Interested to hear why your phone is connected to the board.

You need lasers.

Show us what you are making / have made!

Awesome to hear we've got some like minded peeps onboard! :D

DannyMax- Do you use ASM or C? Ive only ever used ASM, which works well for most applications, but I've had trouble actually setting up MPLAB for using C before. I might ask your help when it comes to it :)

Vladddd- Yes Sir, I loves me my cubing. I've got a couple of 3x3's, one with higher speed bearings then the other, and a 2x2 cube, which I got off a keyring,

AS- Definately will be checking that out! Gumstix verdex dont have a huge amount of community support, but their other model does. I might end up switching to that. I do want to get into some higher level stuff for AI/physics modelling, organic motor control etc.

Also, I probably do need to update my dunny.

Nik Clark, That's not a phone, its a PicKit3 a great piece of kit for $40, programs and debugs.
I planned on getting me a 500 watt CO2 laser earlier for a client's request, but I thought $10,000 was a bit pricey for a prototype that may or may not work/sell.

I'm really looking forward to hooking into some projects and keeping you all updated! I'll be asking alot of help I thinks

What exactly is that thing and what does it do? Looks cool... But I am clueless.

basically it has a 6 pin input at one end and USB at the other end. you plug it into your computer and then into a breadboard, which is a board for testing circuits on. It allows you to program microchips and also debug them when they're not working how you expect.
