The Star Wars Speeder Bike page is up! I also got the galleries up for the Speeder Bike and my Prusa i3 Mk2 mod to 2.5! I will be doing a a write up on my Prusa upgrade shortly.

I am rebuilding the site from scratch. But I do have the images and text. Just not and an easily importable form...It is going to take time to fix. I am not going to re-add all of the news articles.

Most links will be broken until I can fix them. Some will not be fix - the old site is gone. No time to fix it.

I finally got the rest of the photos and a short writeup done for the XY Plotter project. The gallery for it has been updated too. Not a lot to add here, but I did list off the mods I did to it. Check it out.

K2SO has a new head! After about 30 hour of printing... Yeah... I seriously under estimated how long it took to print originally. The head and neck are assembled. Just needs paint and final assembly onto the base.

Still working on the Talking Skull. Parts are ordered for the sound bit and I am also working on integrating a distance sensor to tell when someone walks up to it to trigger an audio file. Pretty trickey stuff. The base code works to move the jaw in sync with the audio in, but I need it to start upon detection. It will happen, just taking me a bit longer than I would like. Go figure...

Just finished printing the last piece for my K2SO head project. Assembly should not take too long (actually, it took a lot longer than I thought - see the project page for more), but finishing will. There is about 20 hours of printing that went into this project. But I am not too happy with the fit of the top of the head. I am going to be reprinting the front, middle,  and back to see if I can get a better fit and hopefully less time required to finish it. I added some pictures to the K2SO gallery so you can see.

I also did some work figuring out how I was going to integrate the RCWL-0516 module into my Talking Skull Project and it is going to be really simple. You only need 3 pins - power, ground and and output. When it detects an living object, it outputs 3.3v on the output pin. And by default, it has a range of ~7 meters. I may have an issue with the 360 degree detection though. The next part of the project is figuring out the sound level module and getting that working with the Arduino moving the jaw. Which actually turned out quite simple. I did order a MP3 player that will be triggered by the detector module. Once that gets in I can move forward on this project.

I do have the camera to put into InMoov's eye. I am just trying to figure out how to route the USB cable from they eye and out the neck. I am pretty sure I am going to need to disassemble InMoov again...

Got the gallery sorted out. It now works correctly. This new version (2.2.2) of CMS Made Simple has a few bugs I had to work around. The major ones, are taken care of, but for some reason the self linking is not working correctly, so I had to go back and fix all of the links to the internal web pages. Hopefully, the next release will fix it.
