Adding One to the List

Hey guys, sorry for the lack of updates, schools been really busy and I haven't had much time to scratch a few off my list.

But one thing I have done is found a new project I want to work on. It's called Arduino, and it's an open source microchip controller-esc programming package and controller. The board itself can be bought already assembled and the programming language is in C, which I know fairly well.

Once I teach myself how to use use the Arduino, I'll be able to add some more complex projects to the list, and I'll be one step closer to that elusive peristaltic pump!

On a side note, the next PSR solar car is coming along rather nicely. We just got our webcam back up, and you can watch our progress live HERE! We finalized the chassis two weeks ago and we took the carbon fiber panels to WJI Waterjet in Indianapolis. Mike Trapp showed us the ropes and volunteered his time to help us get the car completed.
Next step is to finish the bottom body of the car so we can fit it with the chassis. In the meantime, we'll have to build the front and rear suspension, which we have designed as of last week. Then we'll have a moving car!

Edit: It seems like the webcam is down again. I'll have to look at it again.

  1. You got to be kidding me man. I'm buying an Arduino with my Christmas money to play with! We should totally build something together after we figure out how to work the damn things! :D
