Life is been way to busy. I need to get some pictures taken and write up a few things... More to come.

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.

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...

TTFN,

Keith

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.

I got a bit more done on InMoov. Ended up having to dis-assemble and re-assemble the head. What a pain. I had forgotten about routing the servo control wires through the neck and there are 4 of them. I will need to partially disassemble to add the camera into the eye and route the cable down through the neck.
