Pocket PC Robot – Walking.


Joseph Wu has been busy working on his Pocket PC Robot – It looks like the robot has a limp, that’s because one leg is using digital servos and the other leg is using analog servos. So only one leg can hold the weight of whole body.

Joseph is planning on doing some more work on the robot over the coming weeks and months – I will post more information as this becomes available.

    This is awesome! I would love to see some sort of a kit created to let people extend their Pocket PC to be a robot’s brain.

    I’m back. After several weeks of nothing but work and a couple days debugging my dead network connection (I finally figured out that my TCP/IP stack blew up so I had to re-install them), things are normal again. Catching up on news, it seems like I missed a lot of things over the last few weeks. Google’s desktop search program, Jon stewart owning Crossfire, Soxs down 0-3 and then end up winning the series , etc..etc.. Upgrades This is more personal news than real news. I recently made several upgrades to my computer. An old CD-RW (4x) burner/DVD Rom was replaced by a new BENQ dual layer 16x DVD+R/-R burner. So far I’m loving this device although I haven’t tested the dual layer capabilities due to expensive media. Next up, I finally cleared my work area. This leaves me more room on my desk and in particular, I made room for my other 17" monitor on my desk. I also happen to have a GeForce 4 Ti 4400 which has DVI output. I picked up a DVI-VGA adapter and boom, true dual monitor support. Additionally, I have space for my laptop so I could technically have a third monitor. This will probably be my last modification to this computer until I finally decide to upgrade my motherboard (some generic one), CPU (1 ghz) and case (yep, I’m gonna mod it). Pocket PC robot This looks neat. Creating a semi-functional robot out of a Pocket PC. Looks like a cool project…
