Why do I think that the best cryptocurrency for saving money right now is Dogecoin?

Dogecoin was present in 2013 as a joke. Cryptocurrency based on Litecoin and using Scrypt technology instead SHA-256. In 2014, the Dogecoin Foundation managed to raise money for the NASCAR racer Josh Wise and the Jamaican team in bobsleigh.

Motors is here

Few days ago I received by postal service small orange packet with my motors for the Rhoby project, and today I found a time for write this post and uncover some plans about.

Next stage of the Rhoby project will be built on 4-wheeled platform, this will give more mobility and versatility for the robot.  Size of the robot will be around  35 cm in height and diameter is 13 cm. Next few weeks I’ll spend on completing the prototype of the first stage.

CNC Router quick update

When we started this project with my friend, we have very ambitious ideas and we made a big mistake – began right off built a big CNC machine without any experience in these field.

One of the main problem is twisting of the gantry.

If you look at the picture, you can see white contour which shows the location of the gantry bulk, Z-axis moving along this beam. Violet arrow show the shoulder between bulk and weight(red contour around milling tool) on the Z-axis. Plus, Z-axis itself have a big height (green arrow). All this construction’s “features” giving a twisting gantry while X-axis or Z-axis moves.

Now I try to solve this problem using little changes in assembly of the Z-axis.

Stay tuned.

Some design concept

Rhoby is a companion robot which designed to interact with people for the purpose of teaching them new skills in the fields of exact sciences, philology, etc.

Rhoby has a two arms, one for the pencil, second for the “tablet” – LCD which displays a status of teaching assignment.

Head of the robot consist of OLED-display for eyes animation – one of the methods emotional communication with human, plus on the “face” is placed a speaker for verbal communication. On top of the head two antennas which actually is a microphones for hearing and determining the direction of the sound source.

Time is now

That was a warm spring evening, when I sitting with my friends in pub and discussing robotics, Tim had asked Siri about subject of our dispute, and of course, his smartphone give him a link to Wikipedia. But at this moment I have realized, TIME IS NOW.

Work in progress

Work in progress. Our first CNC machine on the way to be working tool. Now our main aim is calibrating all axis mechanical and program.

Few words about watches.

Ever since my first digital watches were presented me on eighth birthday, I fallen in love with watches. I own various types – quartz, digital, mechanical.

Last few years wearable electronics has becoming more popular, especially «smartwatches». And I started to look at this kind of watches, but I, similar to some other people, do not like the far-fetched concept of this kind devices. Continue reading

Hello for everyone!

Cheers from Mother Russia. Yes we born and raised in cold country, but our minds burning by new ideas. And this blog is a reasonable step, which must help us.
