DIY pick and place machine from parts of scanner, inkjet printer, DVD player and vaccuum pump – Open Theremin – Urs Gaudenz

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/01/30

Urs Gaudenz manufactures Open.Theremin kits using his do it yourself pick and place machine which he built from low cost scanner, ink jet printer, DVD player mechanics and some Arduino controlling. Even his solder oven is Arduino controlled!

This is months of work showing a work flow in a 11 minute youtube video. Well done!

Interesting: Somfy Smoove Origin RTS Protocol | PushStack a base to start Hacking Somfy.

The Somfy protocol is tricky as it uses rolling keys.

These are in Dutch, but very interesting as they show how to do reverse engineering and getting it to work hardware wise:

on my .NET research list: Mini (Raspberry Pi) and Micro (Arduino)

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/08/01

Computing on not so common platforms it so much fun, especially when you can use familiar tools for it.

A couple of years ago, I did a fun project with an USB WebCam, a Pololu USB servo controller, two servo motors, a servo relay and a laser pointer. The device would point the laser pointer at the biggest moving object in the WebCam view, and flash the laser pointer at it.

All code was C# running on Windows.

Basically there are two classes on “small” devices that run .NET code (apart from smartphones and tablets):

  • Raspberry Pi:
    Mini devices with more than a couple of megabytes memory running a kind of regular .NET Framework.
  • Arduino:
    Micro devices with maximum of a couple of dozen kilobytes memory (a megabyte if you are really lucky) running the .NET Micro Framework

This might be a chance to lift it to a new level and embed everything in one device (:

The cool thing about the .NET Micro Framework is that you can do real time stuff.
