Quadruped Robot: Walking!

It can walk :D! It can move forward/backwards and left/right, as well as rotate in place. While it's not the fastest walking gait, I'm pretty happy with how it looks. It took me a couple of iterations, so I'll go through how I arrived at the current gait.

Quadruped Robot: The Beginnings

Recently, I stumbled upon a lot of quadruped/hexapod projects online, and I thought making one would be a neat project to work on. I decided to go with a quadruped both because it would be cheaper (fewer servos) and seemed slightly more challenging in terms of walking gaits.

Music Box

In my last digikey order (for quadcopter stuff), I threw in a cheap piezo speaker just to play with. I had a lot of free time recently, so I decided to make a simple music box. It can store ~5 songs (depending on length), and you can also play it manually with the buttons.

Cave Story Outer Wall-paper

My favorite video game scene ever is the Outer Wall level of Pixel's Cave Story (which also happens to be my favorite video game - if you haven't played it yet, do it. now.). Beautiful scrolling clouds + moon song = awesome. So anyways, I decided to make a small homage in the form of an android live wallpaper. I decided to also add the sky dragon from the bad ending ): since it seemed a bit empty with just the clouds. Unfortunately, I only have the original droid, so I haven't been able to test it on other phones, but hopefully it should work ok. Just search 'cavestory' in the android market to get it!

CSPSP: update

-new HUD updates (still have to move around a few things)
-probably going to release a test version to a few players soon to make sure that I haven't completely broken the networking

Sunny-rainy days are the best.

Even though I tend to dislike 'artsy' photos (you know, the ones that are all deep with their fancy color touchups and overused depth-of-field), this scene was too awesome even for me to resist taking a few shots (double rainbow :D). I just really love the time after rain when the sun comes out and everything is still nice and wet and shiny.

Unfortunately, the rainbows were fading pretty quickly, so I forgot to set the camera to a higher resolution than 640x480; I also messed up a bit when doing the panorama thing manually (the seams are pretty obvious).
