Fun with an Arduino, or how I learned to love MRL...



Hey All! Well, I went and did it... I started playing with myrobotlab, and now I'm hooked. Thanks to the amazing work of GroG, and the wonderful tutorials of Alessandruino, I have successfully connected my PC to an Arduino, and my Arduino to two servos as a pan and tilt. Add one 1N4005 diode and a webcam and, Voila! Instant visual tracking! I'm so excited about this, and the things to come that I made a short video describing it. Enjoy:

Thanks Chris for posting a video of the pan/tilt. It nicely compliments Alessandriuno's tutorial. I've been slow with my pan/tilt. Thought I'd beat everyone but, my motors and cameras took longer than expected. Then Gaël started publishing more and I switched to printing. You got your hand going. Good!
