Programming Gadgeteer February 18, 2014

No Gravatar

Messing about with a Gadgeteer kit.  This one has the following sensors/gadgets:

  • GPS (top)
  • Temperature and humidity (upper right)
  • SD Card (right)
  • Camera (bottom)
  • Power module (left/red)
  • LED (left)

I have it all working ready to attach to a balloon and send up as a weather experiment with the scouts (they won’t get my code, they will have to program it themselves).  Anyway, to test whether it works I pointed it at a clock and let it take pictures every minute (it was also recording temperature, GPS position and humidity but that is boring as it was just sat inside the house).  Anyway, I love the video as it is reminiscent of early cinematography.  The camera is low-res so its not worth playing the video in a large window.

Ben got Lego Mindstorm NXT 2.0 for his birthday.  We’ve since built a colored ball sorter and a robot to solve the Rubik cube.

    Ben and Jack wanted to make a stop motion animation today. They used a webcam, some simple 'stop motion' software from logitech and their lego models. I helped them out with the first sequence and they did the rest themselves - Jack edited the video, created the credits and inserted…

Baseball again April 18, 2012

Mariners won again!  More importantly for Jack, there was an adequate supply of hotdogs and the thick blanket we’d bought at the last game could be wrapped right-around him and across me.

Underwater camera leaking but… April 5, 2012

No Gravatar

Our faithful Olympus is slowly dying. Whilst in Maui it kept filling with water and needed regular coaxing back to life. Its slowly rusting inside from the seawater getting in – requiring vigorous shaking/blowing/warming out after each snorkeling trip. Thankfully it hung on in there for the last dive and the turtle encounter.

    A few more of places we’ve been, the family and people we’ve met during our time in Italy.     The sunset and water photos are taken on a (waterproof) Sony Olympus (S850SW) – which seems to do remarkably well at taking piccies in just about any conditions – the others…

    Snorkeling next to Wailea today.  Photos taken with our Olympus (underwater) camera.  In the far distance we managed to see a tail-slapping display by some humpback whales!
