This project is my attempt at using OpenCV better! This post will reflect my progress, and will be updated as changes are made.Continue reading “Raspberry Arduino Pi Robot, featuring OpenCV | A growing post”
This robot returns things that people throw just so they could throw them again. Brilliant, I know.
More specifically, this robot uses GPS to drive on the field (word #2 of Track&Field), and retrieve javelins from their landing point back to the athletes.
Fun fact: I got to present it at MIT’s XFair! It is a tech-expo-career-fair mashup. It was really exciting.
Soldering the pins of NRF24L01 chips while making remotes and receivers was fun and challenging. Although it got a little monotonous over time. As much as I love soldering –the repetitive nature of building those remotes and receivers made it hard to maintain high making energies. (That’s a thing. Yes. It may be a thing).

One of the secrets to happiness is having the possibility to lie down in bed, organize yourself neatly under the blanket and between your pillows, close your eyes, and THEN shut the room’s light. In this post I will tell you the years-long story of my journey towards “perfecting” remote-light-switching devices.
I have been fortunate to be one of those who received an MIT Admissions Tube, and decided to honor the “tradition” and hack it! Or put in another way, forcefully make it be something it shouldn’t be and do things it probably only dreamt doing. That is, of course, if tubes dream.
Walkers. I wanted to build a walker for a long time now, and it’s finally done.
So yeah, it walks. But that’s not all there is to it, it also walks to the direction I tell it to!
